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.

We had a great one-night stay here in April. The host Charlie met us before we were even at his door and helped carry one of our bags upstairs. Our room was really nice and Charlie also gave a us a good dinner recommendation. Breakfast was also excellent and presented on beautiful place settings. Charlie, the host, also gave us advice on where to go to find a bank machine so we could get some UK pounds in Derry. This worked out really well. This is a good stop if you are heading from the ROI into NI.

Beautifully presented house and the attention to detail was superb. It was spotless clean and bed was extremely comfortable and ensuite bathroom was spotless clean too. The breakfast was wonderful and there was everything from fresh fruit to very tasty cooked breakfast. The hosts were extremely friendly and attentive and couldn't have done enough for us. I will definitely stay here again and it was great value for money. I would highly recommend this B&B

We arrived at a rainy day and had a warm welcome with tea and cakes. We learned the difference between double and twin room and got a twin with hot-water bottle in the bed. What a great surprise. The breakfast could be chosen from a list the night before. I had my first breakfast with salmon and scrambled eggs. Besides the cerials fresh cut fruits and self made fresh orange juice.
