Nicest B&B we have ever been, best breakfast (really, there's not a bigger choice allover Ireland or England for the variety of Marmelade, jam, fruit aso), Isobella is the loveliest landlady you can think of. The shower in the bedrooms are great. Lounge with wonderful view can be used by guests. We stayed there in summer 2011 and now it's... More

Lovely spacious ensuite room. Great views from the front of the house. Isobella is a great character, entertaining, helpful, knowledgeable. But the highlight without question is the cooked breakfast. Best cooked breakfast I have had. I've now stayed there twice - and couldn't believe that the breakfasts tasted even better this time. And if bacon etc isn't your poison, worry... More

My Sister, Mother and I are happy to have found such a lovely B&B to stay at during our time in Derry. We were met by Isabella with such a warm and genuine welcome and she was very helpful in recommending a good restaurant and arranging a cab for us. Our room was spacious, our beds were comfortable and our... More

Booked one night but stayed two, it was such a good find. Isobel was delightfully welcoming & very dog-friendly, she even cooks evening meals which can be a godsend after a day exploring. Lots of interesting conversation giving insight into Northern Ireland's history & recent changes. After a week of travelling it was time to find a laundrette- no need,... More

We had booked a king room at Nightingale House for 3 nights in June, based on the excellent trip advisor reviews. The B&B is lovely and Isobel is very accommodating. However, we found the bed very uncomfortable (way too hard, squeaky and not a king by north american standards). Maybe this is just our own problem, but we would have... More

Just arrived home from yet another stunning weekend at Nightengale House. Isobel, the host, was up to her usual high standard (and beyond). We have discovered at first hand that Isobel does evening meals (on request) and we were not disappointed. As this was my birthday weekend, we decided to go for fine dining in the City, but we found... More

I can't speak highly enough of nightingale house. Isabel was a lovely host. Very friendly and welcoming and funny as well. The rooms were absolutely beautiful. The artwork and attention to detail was stunning. The bathroom looks newly renovated and had been stocked with absolutely everything you could ever need if you had forgotten to pack something. Breakfast was a... More

What a wonderful time I had at Isobel's B & B especially her wonderful EGGS ! and the talking parrot. It was my first time in Derry and this B & B was well situated as it was only £3/4 for a taxi into town. The breakfast was a treat and the bedrooms were excellent. My friends had all been... More

This is our 2nd visit to Nightingales B&B. Once again, Isabel's hospitality is first class. Such a lovely warm reception and goes way beyond our expectations. Nothing is a problem, she has a fabulous knowledge of the city which she is always happy to share. Goes out of her way to make sure everyone is happy. There are 10 of... More

We stayed here on Wednesday night 11 September 13 and Isobel (the owner) couldn't do enough for us. Decor throughout was exceptional and extremely tasteful. It was truly a home from home experience. When we asked Isobel for the name of a taxi to take us to a restaurant, she arranged for a reliable local firm who arrived on time... More
