Book this gem!!!!

If you are looking for a place to stay in Derry then just book this B&B, don't look for anything else. From the moment you enter the building until you leave you will feel so welcome and part of the family….When I arrived, Keith was waiting for me and gave me all the information I needed about the B&B and Derry. Ursula had called a taxi for me for the morning I left but when he didn't show up she drove me herself to the airporter station. There is no hotel that would do that for you and they had made me a breakfast package for on my bus. When staying at Bridge B&B you are in walking distance of the old centre of Derry, close to the shopping mall, close to the train station, etc...

Gorgeous building, friendly owners

Lovely old building, great decor, well situated, with wonderful views of the bridge. Bed was comfortable and a good size. Owners are helpful and friendly. Breakfast was tasty. Easily deserves its top TripAdvisor rating.

One night stay, wished it were longer

We had such a great stay here. The hostess, Ursula, was like coming home to a long, lost friend or relative. She made us laugh and we wished we could have stayed a week, just to have her entertain us.

Why do you travel?

The walled city and the Bogside are all within easy walking distance. It's frankly a relief for an American driving in Ireland to be rid of the car for a while. Often reviews talk about the size of bedrooms etc. What I think here is important is what one can learn about the history and experiences of the Irish people over the past several decades and the past several centuries. Derry affords that opportunity. And if one is fortunate enough to meet someone like the owner, Ursula, and her husband, Shawn, who grew up here it is a wonderful experience. The time I was able to spend with them is one of the best travel experiences of my lifetime. Thank you both so much for what you shared with my friends and me.

Girls trip

Beautiful b+b in the centre of derry. We stayed in a lovely family room which was massive and lovely and clean. The owners are so nice and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We checked out at 11 and waited in the family room and had lovely tea and cookies provided for us while we waited on the shops opening at 1pm so thank you to everyone at the bridge we will definitely return.

Excellent location and beautiful B&B

The location was excellent for exploring Derry by foot, you could walk anywhere very easily from the the B&B. It was very clean, warm, friendly, and welcoming. The breakfast was delicious. You have the option of a traditional hot Irish breakfast or a beautiful spread of continental choices. I would recommend staying here without hesitation and will definitely stay there again if ever in Derry again!

One of the finest B&Bs out there (Large group booking)

Spent a night stay in this wonderful B&B with 19 students and found the place to be absolutely perfect. Even with a large group the owner Ursula was fantastic, showing me every room, each one better then the last and making the students feel incredibly welcome. In addition to this Ursula and her staff were incredibly helpful with facilitating a large group, responding to emails and ensuring the booking went well. The location is perfect with the city centre just four minutes walk away and with coach parking just two minutes away. As noted I was shown all the rooms in advance as Ursula wanted me to make sure that everyone one would have a great stay and I can say that every room was impeccably clean, as was the rest of the building. The breakfast was equally fantastic with a wide range of choices and also catering to any dietary requirements. The price was very affordable, especially in comparison to other Derry based accommodations which are no where near as a good. During my work I bring large groups of students on field-trips throughout Ireland and can honestly say that this B&B has been the best accommodation I have stayed in with a group. I could not recommend it enough and can say for certain I will be returning to this hidden gem of a place for years to come.
