I couldn't praise the Abbey high enough for its high standards and the feeling of coming to visit family every time we stay here . It's just fabulous and Seamus Helen and all the staff are just amazing lovely hosts. The rooms are very spacious spotless and decorated to a very high level,and the breakfasts are the best! Thank you... More

There's a review of Abbey B&B, where a person from Washington complains about it's "scary" location. Have mercy ffs, it's Derry's Bogside! Location is one of main assets in this case. And B&B itself is nice and cosy, owners will feed you well and then they'll give you a map and tell you where to go to to get the... More

I had a room upstairs that was nicely furnished, clean, quiet and comfortable. The morning's breakfast was cooked to order and tasted fine. This is a good location for walking to the City Walls and many other attractions. There is a tea room cafe which has food available during the day, and is located where guests are served breakfast.

The owners were so helpful. Room was immaculate and quiet. Breakfast: amazing. And tea and coffee available at all times. We stayed in the ground floor room and were very pleased- this was the first week of October, and it was very quiet. Perfect location.

I am confused after reading the reviews on Abbey B&B. My friend and I stayed there September 21 with the intent of staying 2 nights. We left the next day. Our room was downstairs, next to the stairs leading to the second floor. Heard everyone coming in, going out. Loud voices at 2:00 am outside on the "patio". The linens... More

Seamus is passionate about his city, and shared this with us at our recent stay in Derry. His B and B is clean, comfortable and absolutely central . He is also a keen musician and we are guessing that the next anthems for Derry is his composition! So you get not just a warm and informative. host when you stay... More
