Fans of TV programme Derry Girls can unleash their inner Michelle with a tour package experience devoted to the Channel 4 show. The smash hit comedy has put the city firmly on the map. Millions of viewers across Ireland and the UK have enjoyed the antics of the girls and their family set in 1990s’ Derry.
Visitors to Northern Ireland can walk in the footsteps of Erin, Michelle, or even the wee English fella, at key locations from the series such as the Guildhall and Dennis’s Wee Shop.
The tour finishes at the famous Derry Girls Mural. There, guests can take a selfie and be pledged as a Derry Girl, or boy.
The package comes from Hastings Hotels’ Everglades Hotel. It has also created a Derry Girls Afternoon Tea menu inspired by the show.
The menu features a cream horn, a cone of chips, the famous Derry sausage roll baps, a classic Tayto Cheese and Onion crisp sandwich and a cocktail.
Derry Girls rubber duck!
Famous for their iconic rubber ducks, Hastings Hotels have unveiled a Derry Girl duck, modelled on Michelle, as a memento for those taking part.
A duck in the lobby of the hotel has been transformed into a large fibreglass artwork with a Derry Girls uniform, curly brown hair and hooped earrings. Just like the Michelle character from the sitcom.
You’ll fully understand how “being a Derry girl is a state of mind”!
The Tour Package includes an overnight stay at the Everglades Hotel, Afternoon Tea and the walking tour. And the price? From €115 per person sharing.
The package is available without the walking tour for €96 per person, while Afternoon Tea alone is €36 alone.
