If you are in the area, make the effort to stay here. It will be worth any extra driving... guaranteed! Mount Royd is in the quiet countryside just outside Derry. Josephine is an excellent hostess, managing an excellent B&B. This is the only B&B where we have been served afternoon tea whenever we returned from our day's touring. The breakfasts... More

A lovely, big house with a delightful hostess. The terrace in back offers a view up the Foyle Valley. The front lawn is almost enclosed by gorgeous flowering shrubs. Across the road a broad lawn is circled by large trees, so the breakfast view out the drive is of the lawn and the park beyond. The first breakfast sight, of... More

Stumbled across this gem going to Derry. Everything was excellent, far above expectations, and I cannot praise Josephine the owner highly enough. She is kind and courteous and maintains a beautiful house. I felt privileged to stay there.

We went over to cardigans to visit friends and wanted a bit of independence so booked this wonderful B and B. A short drive from Derry airport and within walking distance of a pub and a shop. Josephine the owner was a pure joy. So welcoming and charismatic. We arrived early but it was no bother and she prepared us... More

Our Inn keeper was lovely. The room was well decorated and the entire home elegant. But the most fantastic part was her breakfast with fresh plumbs prepared in a port wine and orange sauce, a variety of sweet breads, fresh fruit, delicious omelets, etc. and she gave us an excellent tip on the best walking tour in Derry. We highly... More

I first stayed at Mount Royd back in 2009 and have returned again and again. Josephine and Charlie always provide excellent service and accommodation, they take a genuine interest in their guests and want to make their stay perfect. I thought it was time I wrote another review but after reading through several reviews on here, I can see they... More

This was one of our favorite B&B stays while touring Ireland. The home had a classic manor house feel to it from the outside in. The room was spacious and clean...it even had a sitting room and doors that led to a backyard garden. Breakfast was delicious and the hostess was very knowledgeable about there area. If you are going... More

Covered in Ivy, Mount Royd is strikingly picturesque. The host was kind to us, and we loved our room. The bed was supremely comfortable, and the shower had surprisingly good pressure. The decor is a bit of a blast from the past, but even so, everything is well put together and well thought out in this home. There's even some... More

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay in this very comfortable home. We were made very welcome with tea and very nice homemade cakes on arrival and our room was a delight with so many interesting touches, as indeed were the other public rooms. The breakfasts were probably the best we had during our trip to Ireland with a wonderful... More

Fabulous welcome with tea, scones and biscuits. Our room was spacious, nice bath with heated towels and power shower. Very Victorian with all the details. Scrupulously clean throughout. Breakfast as an unexpected delight that should put Mount Royd House on the map if for nothing else!
