“Great place to Stay to visit Derry”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Our hosts Joan and Barry very friendly and helpful.Amore is 10 mins eay walk into the centre of Derry where theres lots of pubs and eating houses.
Breakfast was great the only issue is parking which I guess is common to all city centre B&B's. We managed to get our motorbikes of road into their yard with not to much bother.
A great place to tour out from.

Joan is a genuine & lovely host, she welcomed us in warmly & was delightful during our weekend stay. Don't be put off by 1st appearances, the neighbourhood seems quite tough but everyone we encountered was ridiculously friendly & we always felt safe. The B&B is also a 7-8 min walk into town, so super handy! After the craic & the beers of the night before, Joan provided a cracking big breakfast the next day, much needed. Will definitely be back, Derry's an amazing city, great social scene, lots of history & tonnes to do. Would happily stay with Joan next time.

We stayed 4 nights in amore. Joan and barry welcomed us with a very nice breakfast .
The b&b is very well located, walking distance for every attractions.
They advised us every morning. You can park your car very easily after working hours.
You can feel the history in the neighborhood with the painted walls.
We stayed there with 3 children and walked back every night. It was safe and clean.

The room was comfy, clean and well furnished. The host was very helpful from how to operate the shower to ensuring I found appealing things to tour.

The breakfast was cooked to order and tasted great. The B&B is conveniently located an easy walk from the walls and bus terminal.

This was such a perfect place to stay in Derry. It's in the bogside, so the drive in to the neighborhood isn't pretty and is maybe a little intimidating, but the neighborhood is safe and it's really the perfect location. The B&B is in easy walking distance to the city walls and the murals of the bogside. There also is plenty of parking right at the B&B. The owners are so incredibly nice and helpful. They showed us a map of the city on arrival and gave lots of good recommendations for nearby food. It was great to hear about the city and its history from a local.

The rooms are really lovely, spacious and clean. The bathroom is spacious as well. There were 3 of us sharing a room and it was more than enough space. There is a nice little sitting area where breakfast is served in the morning and also a Keurig machine, so you can get coffee, tea and biscuits at anytime.

For breakfast we all got the full Irish breakfast and it was delicious. There was also a selection of fruit and cereals. The Amore B&B was the perfect place to stay and I'd absolutely recommend it to anybody.

This B&B is right by the Derry Wall and in close walking distance of restaurants and bars. Our room was great and there wasn't a lot of B&B noise, but the street noise was loud when we had our window open. There is no parking lot for this place and it was hard to find parking when we arrived during the work day. Everything cleared up in the evening though. The hosts were very nice and incredibly helpful. Highly recommend.

This b&b is situated in the "bogside". While the area around is not picturesque, the b&b is very near to the murals and the walled city. Rooms were spacious, comfy, clean and well equipped. The host was very friendly and provided us with tips for dining in Derry. Biscuits, fruit and coffee were available in the communal area, which was a nice gesture. Breakfast was tasty and abundant. All-in-all, would recommend the staying there.
