We enjoyed everything in this B&B, especially the breakfasts, the garden and the decor. The only thing we didn't like was that our room (nr. 3) was very small and the bathroom really tiny but all clean and functional.

We stayed in Arkle House for several nights and we would not have want to stay anywhere else in Derry. Sally and her husband were very friendly, helpful and gave us a very warm welcome. The rooms were very clean, nicely decorated and in perfect condition. We would definitely go to stay there again.

Good location, about 5 min drive from the city centre, and very swanky! Nice outdoor seating area with pond - perfect for summer evenings. And the house is quite impressive - a very nice old building and clean fresh rooms. Good breakfast too. Also, check out the treehouse in the garden.

We found the Ankle House for a five-day jump off point in Northern Ireland. It was perfect for trips to County Donegal, Malin Head (northern most point in Ireland), Devil's Causeway and Belfast (take the train from/to Derry, it's a great experience). And of course, Derry itself, was well worth the day we spent there. The stay was memorable. The... More

We travelled around Ireland for 3 weeks, staying at B and Bs, guest houses and pubs. Ankle House was the best we found. The house and garden are just beautiful. The guests kitchen is so convenient and our bedroom was spacious and airy. Breakfast was exceptional. Sally is the perfect hostess. Across the road is a pub that does great... More

My recent stay at Arkle House was my third over a number of years and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Derry. The location is quite close to the fairly busy road to Buncrana, but the guest house is beautifully secluded with high hedges and trees and has a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. The house itself is handsome and... More

We spent 2,5 weeks in Arkle house and we loved it. We had a lovely spacious room, very clean, and a kitchen to cook for ourselves. The house is lovely decorated in old victorian style and is very cosy. Sally is a very courteous and made us feel very much at home.

Arkle bed and breakfast: the house is absolutely beautiful and impressive. Very old worldly set in a large lovely garden surrounded by mature trees. The proprietors are friendly and accomodating. The breakfast selection was extensive and the best I have ever had. There is also a kitchen available to residents. There is parking available, it is a 25 min walk... More

We made a last minute decision to stay in Derry and were fortunate to find a room in Arkle House. The hostess, Sally, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. the B&B is a bit of a distance from town, so it required we get in the car each time we wanted to explore or dine. Our room was basic...
