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

My wife and I stayed here for our first wedding anniversary after reading all positive reviews. Well, everything was perfect, beautiful scenery, breakfast was delicious (French toast is a must) and Irwin and Olga could not do enough for us..

The memories and pleasure that you had staying for holidays in the past, near Malin in particular, have created a great love and passion for Inishowen, which will undoubtedly make you come back time and time again.

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

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 5 and 7 year old daughters. Olga and Irwin could not have been more welcoming and the bedroom was very comfortable and spotlessly clean with stunning views. Breakfasts were delicious, the local knowledge really informative and useful and the big trunk of games much appreciated. We would definitely recommend Inishowen Lodge.

A delightful family who enjoyed the scenery and the uniqueness of Inishowen while visiting relatives. The girls' excitement of being in beautiful and interesting new surroundings was an absolute joy to see. We are delighted that you appreciated our facilities and as the girls start asking more questions there will be a wider choice of new interests to investigate. Maybe... More

We stayed here while on our honeymoon. The b&b itself is wonderful -- incredible views, spacious, lovely furnishings. What really puts it head and shoulders above the rest, though, is the magic woven by Irwin and Olga, the hosts. Olga's breakfasts were hands down the best that we had in Ireland. Irwin has a deep knowledge of the Inishowen peninsula... More
