Congratulations to the City of Derry in getting listed by Lonely Planet guidebook in 4th place in its Best in Travel 2013.
With its chequered past it would have been on the bottom of most peoples 'places to visit' list for many years, but this has all changed in recent years and being nominated City of Culture for 2013 has helped it along the way.
The only completely walled city in Ireland has museums, St.Columb's cathedral, a Guildhall, the Foyle River and what is described as "a vibrant arts scene." Lonely Planet described Derry as an example of a city bouncing back from difficult times.
The other cities listed by Lonely Planet were;
1. San Francisco
3. Hyderabad, India.
6. Christchurch, New Zealand
7. Hobart, Australia
9. Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
10. Puerto Ignazu, Argentina
