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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

About the neighbourhood
Inch Island, a small island connected to the mainland in Lough Swilly, is a birdwatcher's paradise. The island is home to an important population of migratory birds and wintering waterfowl. Three species, whooper swan, Greenland white fronted goose and greylag goose, occur in numbers of international importance. This is the area where the swans make their Irish landfall in autumn on their return from breeding grounds in Iceland and there are some excellent vantage points from which to view these majestic birds. The hugely historic Inch Castle which dates back to the 15th Century and is connected with the flight of the Earls, can also be explored on the island. There's a fine sandy beach on the south western shore and with some scenic drives, Inch Island makes a great place for a relaxed outing.
Getting around
buses to Derry and Buncrana from main road. Taxis available. Great walks and cycle routes.
