Derry is already a city full of landmarks but the tour features a Derry Girls twist - taking visitors to sites such as the iconic Derry Girls mural and Dennis' Wee Shop. Visitors will also explore Long Tower Church where the "Miracle of Our Lady" occurred.

The tour does include an educational element, as visitors will be brought to landmarks such as the Free Derry wall and Guildhall, where Bill Clinton spoke in 1995.

The hotel is also running a menu inspired by the show. It 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.

The hotel has also been decorated with a large fibreglass artwork with a Derry Girls uniform, curly brown hair and hooped earrings, just like the character Michelle from the sitcom, only, in this case, it's a large rubber duck.

The package, which includes an overnight stay at the Everglades Hotel, afternoon tea and the walking tour is from €115 per person sharing.

If you'd prefer to not bother with the walking tour, the package is available without that element for €96 per person, while afternoon tea by itself is €36.
