Elagh View bed & Breakfast
Ranked #19 of 44 Derry B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Elagh View is a beautiful B&B in an excellent location - very peaceful yet convenient to the city centre. Mary and Jimmy are lovely people who make you feel at home and breakfast is very tasty! Would highly recommend and would definitely go back here.

Being a celebrity in America, it is difficult to find a place where you can avoid the paparazzi and feel at ease that you are truly on vacation and I can't thank Mary and Jimmy enough for that peace of mind. I have traveled the world and have stayed in some of the finest hotels and none can compare to 28 Upper Galliagh Road!! My first stay at the recently opened BnB was back in May 2012 and it's like having your own family in Ireland with all the comforts of home and all the quality of a 5 Star experience. I would highly recommend Elagh View Bed & Breakfast to anyone looking to be in the heart of Northern Ireland but miles away from ordinary with land as far as the eye can see.

Room Tip: Make sure you request the south room (the furthest down the hall). I have stayed in all of the suite...

Elagh View is a delightful B&B whose hosts, Mary and Jimmy, extend an immediate and genuinely warm welcome. It is situated in a delightful rural location, which puts any weary traveller at ease. The room and related facilities were meticulously clean and pleasant. A highlight was goji berries for breakfast! I would wholeheartedly recommend it.

We only stayed one night, but the welcome to Mary and Jimmy's home was wonderful! The house is first class and the room we stayed in had everything we could possible need or want. It was comfortable and cosy. Mary and Jimmy were happy to recomend somewhere to eat in nearby Derry, which is a great place, combining old (the old city walls walk) and new (the peace bridge) and lots more to see and do. The house itself is set only 15 minutes from Derry, but nicely out in the countryside, with fabulous views all round. Quiet and peaceful, with no passing traffic. Mary's breakfast was something to behold! Full Irish or whatever you want in super quantities! Also help yourself fruit, cereal, orange juice and yogurt in plentiful supply. Loads of toast tea and coffee too! Mary and Jimmy have only been open as a B&B for a short time, but they certainly know how to be good landlords. Nothing was too much trouble! First class Mary and Jimmy!!

Mary & Jimmy are great hosts who are warm and welcoming. Despite our late night arrival (Driving in Ireland included a big learning curve for us!!), they were happy to see us and very welcoming. The property is nicely maintained and our room & bathroom were spotless. We really enjoyed the beautiful views of the surrounding area and the peaceful atmosphere. We wish we had taken more time in this area to explore, but we were mainly just passing through. Mary's breakfast was fantastic and tailored to our tastes (she is happy to make a "full Irish" breakfast, or will leave off items if you aren't interested in them). Mary & Jimmy were very helpful in telling us about interesting places to see in the vicinity, plus helped us understand the historical conflict surrounding the city. We really enjoyed our time at Elagh View B&B and would recommend it to anyone who is needing accommodations in the Derry/Londonderry area. A side note to those of you who like to see lots of reviews on Trip Advisor--this has only been a B&B for a year or less, so that accounts for why there aren't a ton of reviews yet--it's a great place to stay. Thanks to Mary & Jimmy!!

Great hospitality in a cosy house with great view on the nearby countryside, located only 15 min drive from Derry 'old town'. Very kind hosts and delicious Irish traditional breakfast. I would suggest this B&B to anyone travelling by car and looking for a comfortable accommodation in the countryside.
