The Craft Village is very unique and appealing to the eyes - without a doubt. However, other than a few hair salons and an Irish Gift Store there isn't much to do within it. It is certainly worth a visit if you're not from here and would like to take a few photos. There is a very nice crystal shop... More

Even on a damp, windy, wintry day this was a delightful haven. Although adjacent to the city walls and Tower Museum this courtyard area felt like we were in another world and there was lots to see - even my 10 year old son found much to intrigue him - especially the knitted bicycles, wire tree, traditional cottage and pump!...

If you spend a day in Derry/Londonderry look for the Craft Village within the city walls. It is hidden but stunningly beautiful and lovely. Walk around and have a coffee in one of many cafés or go into one of the small shops. Beautiful place!

I visited the craft village, recommend by locals, and it didn't disappoint. It's a lovely quaint craft village, and doesn't feel like you are in the city. There is a lovely cafe (cafe gate) which has the most amazing food, at a reasonable price. The Irish gift shop is great for all souvenirs and gifts, the lady in the shop... More

Slightly hidden gem with a surprising range of shops and some quite unique crafts. Really friendly welcome - pity some of the shops seem to have odd hours.
