Josie you are the best !!! You went way above and beyond to make our 4 day stay in the Derry area the best. Thanks for all of your help on our wedding renewal service. You made it very special and we could not have done it without you. Thanks so much also to you husband, the breakfast was superb.... More

Mount Royd Country Home would have to rate as the best B&B we have ever stayed at, right from the moment Josephine opened the door we felt welcome, afternoon tea by a log fire, home made cakes & biscuits, exquisitely furnished bedrooms & the most lavish assortment of breakfast choices made this a memorable stay in this part of Ireland.

Google maps directed us past it, but good thing there's a sign outside!! Beautiful cozy home. Josephine treated us well, brought us tea by the fire. Once we figured out how to use the shower, everything was golden. And breakfast was delicious!! Lots of fruit too.

We've been to Ireland a dozen times and have stayed over 100 B & B's. This is absolutely the best B & B we've ever stayed in. Josephine and Charlie are friendly and attentive to your every need. The rooms are spotless, with towel warmers and great showers. Josephine had tea and homemade biscuits ready for us by a roaring... More

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
