Tours of Derry


Waterfall caves

So today I had the great pleasure of visiting the wonderful waterfall caves that sit at the foot of the beautiful and eye catching binevenagh mountain at Magilligan.

After the beautiful drives from Derry City I stopped by St Aidans church and Holy Well which is believed to be a pre Christian spiritual Site that is believed to date back to the 13th century.
As I arrived at the top of the hill I was blown away with the magnificent panoramic views…..

Meeting Paula and her husband was a pleasure and they where more than happy to tell me about the place …… the land is steeped in history and it’s a playground for the explorer!
Luxury cave dwellings sit by beautiful spring water lakes and space for an abundance of outdoor activities such as fishing, snorkelling, cycling, mountain climbing as well as incredible forest trail walks.

The place is a fisherman’s paradise with 2 stocked rainbow trout lakes which is nettled in mature woodland of 20 acres…. it’s a great place for fly fishing as well as bait fishing .
A perfect retreat for couples as well as groups

Iosas Celtic prayer Garden

One of the places our groups love to visit is the mystical Iosas Celtic prayer Garden and visitor centre that lays on the outskirts of Derry on the Donegal border.
Iosas meaning Island of Saints and scholars …. a place where you can enjoy a day of reflection in a peaceful and scenic environment.

Delicaton Choir Group

A group that stands out the most for me this week has to be the Delicaton Choir group who have arrived in Derry from Frankfurt in Germany for our annual Derry city International Choir Fest which has been on all week throughout our city.

Guided Walking Tour on Derrys walls

The Delicaton Choir group will be performing at All Saints Clooney on this Saturday coming, and I can say that they really are amazing to listen to!!
On Tuesday all 32 of them joined me on my Derry City walking tour.
I met up with this lovely group at their hotel before we made our way over to the City Walls of Derry. They had a great interest in our local history. After passing and explaining the history of the Guildhall, the Fountain Estate, and St Columbs Cathedral we made our way down into the heart of the Bogside where we covered important topics like the Civil Rights Movement, the Battle of the Bogside, Bloody Sunday, and the current peace process. Like most visitors who come on my tours, they where extremely impressed with the thought provoking Bogside Murals and the Monuments in the area.
The following day I met up with Sonja and her group once again and we headed up to An Grianan of Aileach and Fort Dunree. We then took an incredible guided tour of Doagh Famine village in County Donegal….. One of my favourite stops! 🙂
