Amore Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #12 of 44 Derry B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 June 2014

My girlfriend and I have just spent 2 nights at the Amore B&B. On arrival we were welcomed by Barry who was very welcoming, showed us around and gave us a map of the town centre and pointed out places of interest.

We had the downstairs room which was spacious and very clean, had a double & and single bed and was an en suite. We met Joan the next morning at Breakfest who cooked us a fry for breakfast, just the thing to get you going after a night on the Guinness.

Location wise it was great, walking distance from the city centre and just around the corner from the Museum of Free Derry and the Bogside murals. Do not be put off by it being situated on the Bogside, every Derry native we met was extremely nice and we met a few fascinating people when we were there.

Check out was at 11am but our flight wasn't until 8pm that evening but it was no bother for us to leave our luggage in the B&B whilst we done a bit more sightseeing and sank a few more Guinness before we had to leave.

Our Innkeeper, Joan, was a doll. The room was comfy and a great value, and breakfast was wonderful. If you go over St. Patty's, say hello to our new friends who are patrons every St. Patty's weekend: Raymond, Jimmy and Paul. We had an absolute blast and would return in a heartbeat!

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.

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.

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.
