First Class B&B Excellent meet & greet. Spacious Rooms. Lovely Breakfast served in a beautiful room with a view of Lough Foyle. Irwin and Olga are excellent to stay with and guide you on the local places to visit. Well worth a stay if near Inishowen.

I has such a wonderful stay at Inishowen lodge, definitely the best accommodation I have experienced. The views are breath taking. The decor is tasteful and cosy. My room was big and beautifully furnished, lots of floor space which was great for my morning yoga. There was so much attention to detail, they seem have thought of everything, ie herbal... More

We stayed at the The Inishowen Lodge as we were attending a wedding locally. A very professionally run B & B with helpful and friendly hosts . The Lodge is very well decorated and provides a high standard of accommodation. The breakfast was lovely and we ate with a great view of lough Foyle. Would and have recommended staying here.

Irwin and Olga were fantastic hosts; my parents and I showed up a bit later than we expected (travel issues combined with no knowledge of the time change in Ireland) but the hosts welcomed us in the driveway. They were both incredibly friendly and helpful during our one night stay. The guest house is perfectly, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The... More

We would agree entirely that visiting Inishowen, North Antrim coast and Derry/Londonderry needs a little time to grab the atmosphere, see it's fantastic landscape, and live it's culture and history. Making your base in Inishowen Lodge, a Tripadvisor award winning B & B, with it's maps, books and freely given knowledge is a must do event. This is why people... More

B and b is well signposted from the main Derry moville road. The room was spacious with nice furniture and a comfortable bed. Wifi is available too. The breakfast was plentiful and very tasty with a lovely view of lough foyle from the breakfast room.

Recently stayed one night here with my boyfriend on a very rushed 4 day tour of Ireland. We wanted to stay somewhere unique, and at a location a little off the beaten track. The Inishowen Peninsula was PERFECT!!! Our host, Erwin, greeted us on our arrival and happily shared a coffee/tea with us and chatted away about the history of... More

Perfect guests who appreciated the rural location and being in real Ireland with it's natural ruggedness, wildness, culture and history. A terrible pity that from the shortness of your stay, the exploring and connecting with Inishowen and it's people could not be fully experienced. Our maps, books and personal knowledge of the inishowen peninsula would have been ideal for you... More

If you want to go to the Inishowen Peninsula (and you should) then the only reason for not staying here is that you can't get in. It's welcoming, spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable; if that's not enough, the location is excellent and the breakfast perfect.

We agree. That's why we choose to live here and have the pleasure of sharing the magic that is the Inishowen peninsula - like a mini Ireland with it's awesome views, wildness and close knit communities. It retains the uniqueness and quaintness of Old Ireland yet only a short distance from Derry/Londonderry with its walls, history and culture, sitting comfortably... More
