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.

This was our VERY favorite B&B during our entire trip. Everything was perfect. The house and grounds are beautiful. Our room was lovely and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and extensive with fresh fruit, pastries and local farm to table fare. The eggs couldn't be fresher...they came from the chickens in the chicken coop located in the back yard. We discovered them when we enjoyed a glass of wine on the patio. A wonderful place to stay.

Exceptional in every way! Great hospitality, personal interest, very helpful, super location for drive to Dublin airport. Josephine even sent emails to inquire about my trip home as I had suffered an injury at the Giants Causeway. I highly recommend staying here!

We were warmly welcomed by Josephine with tea, coffee, scones and cakes. Our stay of 2 nights was wonderful as she and her husband provided everything you could possibly imagine in a B and B, from luxury toiletries to chocolates. The room was very comfortable indeed. Breakfast was amazing with a wide variety of foods to choose from. They provided advice about where to eat and suggested a number of options for travelling throughout the north of Ireland. We had a great time and this was by far the best we visited in Ireland. It should be a 5 star!
