We stayed at the Merchant's House in Derry, NI in February/March of 2011. We could not have been more pleased with our lovely accommodations! I feel badly that I don't remember the owner's name, but she was a lovely, most hospitable woman! Her husband runs their other B&B. It was very chilly that year in Ireland, so we were a... More

We originally booked the other house (Saddlers) but one of the owners was away when we were there so we were "upgraded" to Merchant house at no extra cost. Possibly because there wasn't any extra cost involved I guess we were given the lower cost room. Unfortunately this is in a basement, which in itself is no problem, the room... More

This is a lovely Georgian home close to the centre of Derry. There are antiques throughout the house and the dining room and sitting room are particularly elegant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this B&B and Joan was most helpful about parking, dining options and things to do. We stayed in two rooms on the basement level and they... More

Fabulous house, we stayed in newly converted garden room across an Italianate court yard. Super breakfast and Jean is fabulous, warm and welcoming. Can't recommend it enough, right in the city centre.

Astounding Georgian house right in the centre of Londonderry, this was definitely the best stay in Northern Ireland by far. Wonderful rooms, incredible wide breakfast, and a host like you will rarely meet. Surely recommended!

I love the Merchants house, having stayed here before several years ago and opting to return there for another trip to L/Derry. If you are expecting a hotel experience you will be disappointed. This is a traditional BnB in all senses of the term. Peter and Joan are very friendly and helpful with recommendations on where to eat or visit.... More

This is an interesting historic property, lovingly restored and graciously managed by Joan and Peter, who made us feel completely at home in a grand house. It was my favorite accommodation of our two-week trip. Our three-generation family of six stayed in the two garden level rooms (the historic maids' quarters), which adjoin by way of a small kitchenette, while... More

Stayed here 3 nights in early May. Our room and en-suite bath (on the 2nd floor - 1st floor to Europeans) were fairly small, but overlooked the back garden. We were also next to the lovely large parlor/sitting room and to the guest-use computer. All of this suited us very well. Downstairs dining room was beautiful and breakfast delicious. Enjoyed...

Not easy to find. GPS will take you right there and you will probably drive by it the first time. It's the Georgian row house next to the vision eyeglass center. When you do find it, Peter and Joan will probably be around the corner at their other B&B. I think that one is Saddlers House. There will be a... More

Rooms here are just like in any well kept B&B, some smaller and some larger. What I found interesting was the atmosphere of authenticity. This is the first B&B where I saw a spacious and luxurious sitting room where you can find a useful compilation of books and guides on Ireland. Both the sitting room on the first floor and... More
