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

Stayed two nights at the Merchants House. Very nice room with large bathroom. Great common area to have a drink and catch up with email. The owner is very nice with wry sense of humor. Made us feel very welcome. Great Irish breakfast each morning. Only problem might getting on the street parking. Easy walking distance to castle, Bogside and... More

ok so I`m biased, I`m originally from Derry and am very proud of my home city and I have a fascination for all things Georgian so Merchant`s House ticked all the boxes. As a family of 4, myself, himself and 2 kids aged 9 and 6, we were assigned the family room in the basement - warm, cosy, welcoming and... More

I stayed at the Merchant's house for a night and would have stayed longer, if I could have. An old Georgian house which is beautifully restored. Each room and the common spaces such as the sitting room, dining room and the staircase are unique. The rooms at the back overlook a lovely courtyard. The communal dining table around which a...

A provincial Georgian house restored and furnished sensitively. A host with humour and knowledge of her surroundings. A large table for communal breakfast and good homemade foodstuffs. A sitting room with many original features, comfortable chairs and a selection of books.These are all you need for to make a charming and unique lodgings. Of course the host knits it all... More

We travelled to Derry with the intention of installing our daughter in the Halls of Residence at Magee Uni, arriving a day early from Cyprus. For the one night. The proprietress, Joan, was extremely accommodating, even providing us with breakfast on arrival, after our long journey, well after the breakfast clear up. We had a large family room in the... More

We spent a week in The Merchant's House, it was very comfortable - it felt like home from the very first day. The building is old but very well restored and is beautifully decorated. Kudos to the owners for a well done rehabilitation job. We had the two back rooms/kitchen in the basement so we had our own entrance from... More

We had the garden level family room which was large, bright, and very comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent. You can't beat the location for visiting the city center. Everyone was so kind to my kiddos and were very friendly.

great location, great breakfast and very nice people. Our room was on the first floor with a very small but functional bathroom. Breakfast was very nice. The owner gave us a map and directions to various locations in the city. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
