Lonely Planet review
Completed in 1619, Derry’s city walls are 8m high and 9m thick, with a circumference of about 1.5km, and are the only city walls in Ireland to survive almost intact. The four original gates (Shipquay, Ferryquay, Bishop’s and Butcher’s) were rebuilt in the 18th and 19th centuries, when three new gates (New, Magazine and Castle) were added. Derry’s nickname, the Maiden City, derives from the fact that the walls have never been breached by an invader.
