Well where do you start with a review of Redgate House? This was honestly the best bed and breakfast experience we have ever had. From the booking and communication from Eilish the owner we looked forward to our stay. We arrived on a cold breezy day but as soon as the front door was opened and we got such a worm greeting we immediately cheered up. Offered tea or coffee on arrival in front of the cosy stove and even though the house is huge we felt at home right away. Our room was great, very comfortable bed and towels, shower gels, shampoos supplied. When we arrived back after a night in Derry we relaxed in the lounge in front of the huge tv. Breakfast was beautiful, every bit as good if not better than some hotels we have stayed in and all freshly cooked to order. Don’t hesitate booking to stay with Eilish..the only thing I didn’t like was having to leave! Wonderful!

TLDR: STAY HERE. The owner, the house, and the breakfast are magnificent. When we chose to stay at the Redgate House B&B it was because we had no other place to go. We had a beautiful but horrific day with screaming children at Giant’s Causeway (man, it can get windy,) and our previous plans had fallen through because half our party got COVID. We were stranded. Last minute we booked Redgate and I noticed that we were 7 minutes away from last check-in with an hour drive ahead of us. I called the owner and immediately she said, “Hi! Not a problem. I’ll be here!” in a lovely, cheery, welcoming voice. Phew. We get there. It’s raining heavily. It’s Ireland, so to be expected. But with a two-year-old and a 4-month-old sleeping in the backseat the last thing we wanted to do was wake them up by standing out in the rain waiting to be let in the house. To our relief and surprise, the owner, Eilish, opened the door before we even approached and beckoned us inside. She saw our children and squealed saying that she hasn’t had children in the house since COVID and she’s so happy to have us here. It was the welcome we needed. She scooped up our two-year-old, and for some reason, we just let surrogate Grandma Eilish take over. She was our shelter in a storm. I thought I broke my foot, so could hardly walk. She turned on Netflix on the massive TV in the sitting room, sat me and my daughter down on the comfy couch, had me elevate my foot and gave me ice and Ibuprofen. She set up dishes and condiments for our dinner while my husband was out catching our fish supper at the local chippy that she recommended (Bridie’s - top notch), and I finally felt like we had some peace after many rough days. The room was cozy and had enough space for our two kids (she provided a camping cot for the toddler). The only complaint I would have is the motion sensor in the bathroom, which means that when you use the toilet during the night the main bathroom light comes on and threatens to wake everyone up. The shower is huge and the hot water is endless. The breakfast. You guys, the breakfast. Full of gorgeous local pastries and yogurt, yummy coffee, tea, and juice. The muffins from Donegal were sensational. Super nice and all you really need. But then Eilish asks if you’d also like cooked breakfast. A full fry-up is available, but I just asked for eggs, tomatoes, and sausages. THE MOST DELICIOUS SAUSAGES EVER. Perfectly cooked eggs. Perfect. Best of all, excellent chat. Eilish is so kind, very funny, and like the mother you may have never had, or maybe you did and you just get to have another one. My daughter woke up after our first night there (yes, we extended another night. Who wouldn’t?) and she screamed with delight when hugging Eilish, “Good morning!” By the end of our two-day stay we felt like we had a new family member. And the house? Look at that picture. It’s as grand inside as it looks outside. It feels historic. Apparently it’s their family home they built in the 90’s. Do yourself a favor: skip the hotel and really enjoy your stay in Derry with pure Irish hospitality. Stay at the Redgate House B&B.

Purely by chance we came upon this delightful B and B and we were astounded by how different this was from our previous experience of overnight stays - not just in B and Bs but pretty much all but the loveliest boutique hotels . The house itself is stunning and the welcome from Eilis was quite unexpected . The bedroom and bathroom were both beautiful and the breakfast was quite extraordinary . We rarely post reviews but this is something special

An exceptionally warm welcome from Eilish, magnifient bedrooms and spectacular bathrooms, a generous breakfast served at a communal table in great company. This is a one of a kind bed and breakfast set on the edge of Derry with fabulous views of the city . Derry is a lovely city to explore but I would return just to stay in this place again- it’s so wonderful!

The accommodation was excellent and the breakfast delicious but the host made the visit. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel so welcome. Would highly recommend it to everyone for short or long visits.

Eilish facilitated our family holiday with a warmth of welcome that we have simply never experienced. From our initial enquiry to her greeting at the front door, we knew that we were in good hands. Her experience shines through in every small detail. This is so much more than a 'b & b', as my son said, "I didn't realise we were staying in a mansion". It may not be in the centre of the city but that only added to its charm. A taxi cost just £4! The rooms are simply stunning, spacious and well furnished with large modern ensuites and beds you didn't want to get out of they were so comfortable. As well as beautiful meals out in many of the restaurants that Eilish recommended, we spent family nights in the huge living room watching movies on the 52" TV. There are simply not enough superlatives to sum up our experience or our wonderful host, Eilish. Thank you, we will definitely return.

We stayed in this wonderful B&B for a night. It was a last minute find, and we were so delighted. An ideal location close to Derry city, but far enough that we got a peaceful night sleep in the countryside. Breakfast was delicious and the room was gorgeous. Last, but not least, the hostess was so helpful and kind. She made us feel right at home, it was like visiting family. Cannot thank her enough for the stay.
