We were attending a wedding near Derry and needed a place to stay for a few nights. Fortunately, we hit upon this wonderful B & B. The host and his family were very friendly, offering us coffee in the small lounge when we arrived and asking about our visit in general. When they knew where we were going they printed off maps for us, and when we said we had a couple of days free, they also recommended various days out which turned out to be spot on! The breakfast was wonderful - a selection of cereals/cakes/fruit/yoghurt followed by a freshly cooked Irish breakfast and as much tea/coffee/toast as you wanted.
As to the room, it was fine - somewhat compact but adequate for just a few days' stay. The only downside was there was no kettle/tea/coffee making facilities in the room. As I say, we were offered coffee when we arrived on our first day but it would have been nice to have coffee in our room at the end of a day out, or as soon as we were awake before going down for breakfast. I am sure if we had asked, our hosts would have made us some coffee but they weren't always about when we came back from our various trips out and we did not feel we could knock on their private quarters late at night to ask if they would mind making us some.
We were in the front bedroom and on the Saturday night there was a lot of noise of late night revellers into the early hours. We hadn't realised that when the room had been refreshed during the day whilst we were out, they had opened the window which allowed so much of the noise to disturb us. When we discovered this, we closed the window next night and it was much quieter.
There was parking on the property but this seemed to be on a first come first served basis although there was plenty of parking just around the corner so this wasn't a problem.
All in all, this was a delightful place to stay although I would recommend you to take a travel kettle to make it perfect!
