This was probably the best ice cream parlour in the city. The ice cream was made on the premises daily with some very innovative flavours. The decor was fresh and bright and the range of food was fantastic. Sadly the shop has now closed. Hopefully the owner will reopen again sometime soon.

We went here because they had such high rating! We were a bit disappointed! The ice cream was nice but not as great as we expected! I personally think they could put more of the flavourings through the ice cream! They look amazing on display but didnt taste as good as they looked, the mint choc didnt have enough choc... More

Just wanted to add another glowing review to the list. My husband and I and two other couples stopped here one afternoon after a morning stroll with our CIE Tour. I had read reviews on TA and wanted to see for myself. We are all ice cream lovers and were NOT disappointed! I had my favorite chocolate chip mint and... More

Great ice cream on a hot sunny day in Derry. Plenty of flavours to choose from with a few wee different twists to add both texture and extra flavour. Well worth a look.

This is a lovely little ice creme shop. It is a little pricey but it is also in a good location and the nice setting. The kids loved going in. The extra for the Ice Cream were a little steep bringing the cost up when buying for 4. Would go back.

I have been to Italy several times and the Gelato is excellent there and I ate plenty of it on my trips!! But I went to Maiden Heaven to sample their ice cream and I was surprised that it exceeded the quality of Ice Cream I so additively enjoyed in Italy. The Ice cream flavours were vast and the owner...

Can't believe how good the ice-cream here is. It's literally amazing! Very friendly staff. Clean shop! Think its time maiden heaven expanded to bigger premises! Definately the nicest eatery in town!
