Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Abbey Bed and Breakfast is a cool place to stay if you ever visit the lovely city of Derry. Everyone, from the host, the staff, to other guests, is super nice and easy to have a chat with. I booked a twin room for two, but our room can easily fit three people. The host walked us through the space while informing us that our room didn't have a TV, and the shower door was a bit jammed. It was nice to know but neither bothered us too much. We could hear other guests enter/exit their rooms at night and in the morning, but the beds were comfortable enough that we had a good rest. The breakfast is cooked to order, with a choice between Traditional Irish breakfast or egg & toast; plus, freshly brewed coffee - a warm way to start a chilly day in Derry. I was kind of reluctant to bring my mum to stay in a B&B initially, but she highly praised her experience at Abbey, and that says something.

For the past 22 years I have been staying at the Abbey Bed and Breakfast, so yes I am a bit biased. Seamus and Helen Kennedy are the warmest hosts you will ever meet. The Abbey is full of historic, sports, and music memorabilia. The rooms are good sized and always clean. The breakfasts are delicious. The location of the Abbey is great for walking to Free Derry Corner, Walls of Derry, restaurants, pubs and all there is to do in Derry.

Absolutely fantastic location only a block away from the walls. Rooms are small but spotless. Seamus was so friendly and was keen to recommend great places to eat and pubs to enjoy trad music. Ellie is delightful and it was a pleasure to see her every morning at breakfast, which by the way was delicious. The interior walls are covered in photos, posters and more of Irish musicians etc. so very interesting. We really loved our stay and highly recommend.

Located in the Bogside - with all the related politics - past and present immediately in your face. A short walk to walled city and yet more history and pollitics. Our hosts were very helpful and welcoming, breakfast was plentiful, street parking available. Room was spacious and ready upon arrival.

I struggle to reconcile the room we had with the previous reviews and the notion that this is advertised as luxury accommodation. We had a very small room with a double bed and a simple bathroom that I would describe as basic as best. The house is old fitted out with odd pieces of dark furniture, certainly nowhere cosy where you might choose to sit. On the plus side, it is well located with the city sights within a ten minute walk, and parking available in the street outside. I could not recommend this B&B - the description of the house and the reviews do not match our experience with our allocated room.

Response from Seamus Kennedy, General Manager at Abbey Bed and Breakfast
Responded 7 Aug 2023
I struggle to reconcile your review with the price you paid for a city centre location. Dont understand you comments either "no where cozy to sit" where as we have four lounges-dining areas and there is about seven different sofas...wing back chairs etc....Also i love dark furniture/ antiques, it a matter of your taste against ours. I would like also to understand your definition of size...? Rooms are actually decent size for a bed and breakfast and all are passed by quality assurance within guideline of Northern Irish Tourist board. Anyhow thanks for your review i suggest you try some of our great hotels in Derry City but expect to pay three times the price. Slainte agus go raibh mile maith agat.

Very warm welcome they couldn’t do enough to help our stay ,breakfast great , very comfy beds which were especially welcome after a long day walking the walls of the city. Attractions and city centre all within a short walk. We will definitely be back again soon, that warm Irish welcome we received guarantees that.

Close to numerous memorials and museums of the Irish fight for justice of '68 and on, and less than ten minutes walk to all the main historic sights of Derry. Abbey has numerous rooms of varying types in a newer converted building in a semi-residential area. Staff of the large office building opposite use up much of nearby parking. Best to arrive after 5pm, or on weekends. Our room was clean and comfortable, but without a TV. Two lovely friendly ladies provide a tasty filling breakfast. No dinner, but many restaurants within a 1km range. The owner lives elsewhere, and staff are gone at night. So any problems such as lost room keys or disturbances from other guests could be an issue. The entrance doors are left unlocked.

Response from Seamus Kennedy, General Manager at Abbey Bed and Breakfast
Responded 21 Jun 2023
Thanks for your stay and comments. Sorry you had no TV in your room as most rooms do have a TV but there was remote problems recently and we had to get an engineer to sort out. Also your information doors not been locked is wrong as i work the night duty and main door is not locked until all guests return. There is a security camera at entrance that we can view always and we do this as no guest is locked if it is raining or forget something, etc... This works for us after 23 years of experience Anyhow thanks again and all the best. Seamus K.
