  • Absolutely stunning Cathedral, a must see whilst in Derry. Very well kept both inside and outside. Visit is about twenty minutes but very well worth calling in.  more »
  • Very nice cathedral but it was no open due to Covid-19 (only on Sundays, for the time being). Nice graveyard.  more »
  • A beautiful cathedral with welcoming staff. A place of quiet contemplation and reflection in awe of the history of the people of Londonderry.
  • The Catherdal is part of Derry's heritage whatever side of the line you originate and its worth a visit. People were very welcoming. Nice exhibition today including shops and places of business in Derry from before the 'troubles.
