We met Donal upon arrival he was very hospitable and welcoming. Teresa gave us some tips for dinner, and we had a nice chat with Donal in the evening, showed us several books on Derry and gave us explanations. The bedrooms were perfect size for what we needed. We had a full Irish breakfast in the morning. Nice b&b with... More

This is a beautiful B&B. We stayed here two week-day nights in September. The rooms are immaculate and thoughtfully furnished and the food is exceptional. However, the very best part of this B&B is the owners, Donal and Teresa. They absolutely could not do enough for us. They provided advice on what to see, where to go, and how to... More

Stayed for one night as at event in Venue. Everywhere so clean and bright. Cooked breakfast best ever. Host's Teresa and Donal lovely, lovely people. Breakfast served at one table although I personally prefer individual tables. However Teresa and Donal helped the coversation to run smoothly. Would definetly use again.

This is a B&B to beat all B&Bs! We and other family members have stayed there on a number of occasions and the high standard and outstanding welcome remain the same. The house is comfortable, homely and immaculately clean. Breakfast is great, served to your specification! Teresa and Donal make you feel very special. Why would you go anywhere else?

Everything about this B&B is just great - the rooms have everything you could want, they are perfectly clean, with ensuite bathrooms . The hosts (Donal and Teresa) make you welcome and they really mean it when they say make yourself at home - you can come and go any time of day or night and there is safe car... More

After our recent trip to Ireland, my husband and I voted Donal and Theresa Mackay the "Best B & B Hosts in Ireland." They are warm, friendly, funny, and full of helpful information. Laburnum Lodge is their home, not far from the center of Derry, but it does work best if you have a car to get to and from... More

The owners were the type of people you wish were neighbors. Great location to see Northern Ireland. Great background on the history and promise of Northern Ireland, that fascinated 3 generations of guests. Best porridge ever - don't miss it.

We found Laburnum Lodge quite easily by following signs to the Foyle Bridge which is quite close. We were welcomed by Teresa and Donal with a lovely pot of tea, and shown the guest sitting-room/breakfast roomc. In here were facilities to make hot drinks at any time. Our room had a double and single bed, and a fairly spacious en-suite.... More

We stayed here on a work trip and it was recommended to us by our Client. We felt very welcome and the owners are very friendly, making it a very homely experience. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the breakfast was lovely. Many thanks.
