Looking for a lockdown idea to get you out of the house? What could be better than a historic walk around the walled city of Derry and then popping in for an ice cream or coffee at Joe Jackson’s Homemade Ice cream?
Situated on the corner of Pump Street and Ferryquay Street, in Derry’s Cathedral Quarter, Joe Jackson’s is ideally located to grab an ice cream and start hiking the walls! Alternatively, call in for a post-walk treat for you and any kiddies in the party.
Founder of Joe Jackson’s, local man Joe Doherty tells us why you can’t miss calling in: “All our ice cream is made fresh on site using local milk and cream, and we import the best ingredients from Sicily. Our Lavazza coffee gets rave reviews!”
The city of Derry, Doire or Londonderry is Ireland’s only remaining walled city and offers 1500 years of social, cultural and religious history. This short walk around the city walls of Derry delivers superb views over historic buildings and the River Foyle.
The entire route is roughly one mile in length on an elevated walkway around Derry’s inner city and visits the four original gates of the wall – Bishop’s Gate, Ferryquay Gate, Butcher Gate and Shipquay Gate.
And the kids will have fun exploring and climbing on the infamous cannon- Roaring Meg!
