Only 8km from Derry City, the bed and breakfast offers superb Irish hospitality and sumptuous home baking courtesy of the welcoming Martin family.

Outdoor lovers can take on the impressive Scalp Mountain, explore Inishowen Peninsula and roam the idyllic Glenveagh National Park. Visitors won’t fail to be enamoured by rugged Donegal. Visit Dunmore Gardens just across the road where Agatha Christie was a regular visitor in the early 1920's and is believed to be the inspiration for some of her thrillers.

We were delighted we planned to stay 2 nights. The B&B was beautiful; there were welcoming tea and treats; the breakfast was delicious with may selections including homemade pastries. The room was very comfortable and cosy. Our hosts were very gracious.

WOW! I was able to live out my wishes to be a "Irish Princess" at this spectacular B & B. Princess bed, warm towels in the bathroom. chocolates on the night stand, beautiful accents everywhere in this home. Josephine's breakfast was outstanding! Not only did she prepare fresh poached fruits but she made fresh gluten free biscuits to accompany the Irish breakfast!!! Best of the Irish!!!!

A beautiful B&B, by far the best we stayed at in Ireland. Josephine and her husband were wonderful hosts. The room was very comfortable, with a lot of little extras that you would not normally expect. The breakfast was delicious and with so many different things to order, all freshly prepared. I don't understand why this B&B is not rated 5* as it certainly was 5*s in our books. Would highly recommend.
