Meet your host…

Mrs Josephine Martin

You will receive the warmest of welcomes at our family run B&B in Carrigans, near Derry-Londonderry. I will be happy to give you some great tips on where to visit locally. Our guests enjoy my home baking and our breakfast is cooked to order just the way you like it. We hope you visit the Martin Family at Mount Royd B&B soon.


An ivy-clad period home boasting 4-star luxury, Mount Royd Country Home is a delightful haven in breathtaking County Donegal. Only 8km from Derry City, the bed and breakfast offers superb Irish hospitality and sumptuous home baking courtesy of the welcoming Martin family. Visitors can discover the area’s heritage at Grianan of Aileach, a cluster of ancient structures, including a ringfort, on top of a majestic 800ft hill. 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.

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.

We stayed one night at this lovely B&B and upon arrival Josephine gave us directions to a fabulous restaurant. The rooms were beautifully decorated, beds were comfortable and breakfast was incredible! I hope to come back for a couple of days in the future with my husband. Josephine, thank you for being so wonderful and caring to us. Your home is beautiful!
