  • Huge room in a great house. Good localization in Derry at 10 min on walk to the city center. The host was not here but good checkin with a friendly girl.

  • We only stayed here for a total of maybe 12 hours, as Derry was a stopover on a longer road trip. The room was satisfactory and I wish we could have stayed longer to explore the city and get to know some of the guests. The few people we did meet were very friendly. This room was exactly how it looks in the pictures. This location seems like a really cool place for younger people, as it has a hostel vibe to it, although of course you can get plenty of privacy if you want it. If we had been able to stay a couple of nights I feel that we would have had some good times and met some neat people.

  • Our arrival was complicated because no one at here.
    Towels had not been changed but Aleen has remedied that. She is a very helpful person and listening.
    The house is very well located

  • The house was as advertised. The room was exactly as pictured. It is only used as a guest house so expect other people but not a typical "home" setting. It was quiet and comfortable. We only met the manager but it worked fine. The instructions said to get the keys from a local hostel but after getting lost trying to find it, we found out we should have gone directly to the house.

    Hi Julie, yes in recent months we decided it best for people to check-in directly at 30 lawrence hill and not around the block at my youth hostel.
    The townhouse is certainly an airbnb property with 7 rooms on offer to the airbnb community, I must add however it is also my home, alas I just get to be there to enjoy it enough as im on the road as a professional tour-guide 75% of the time. Eileen and Marcus do a great job in my absence though as full-time live-in Managers.
    They really enjoyed meeting you and said you were wonderful guests.

  • Nice big room & good ensuite in large house with friendly fellow residences, some are longer term residences. Large clean common kitchen as well as nice lounge area. Next to university and 5mins walk to centre of town, friendly pubs with live music and a great historic walked city. We wished we had more time there.

    Thanks Cheryl, sorry I didnt get to meet you personally but Chelsea said you were exemplary guests and really enjoyed yourselves in our city-centre townhouse.
    Chelsea has gone to work on 'Game of Thrones' for several months, but will return in the late summer! she says hi

  • I stayed at this exact room (in the townhouse, not the hostel.) It was simply furnished and completely comfortable. It was quiet, clean, safe, and ideally located to the city centre - all what I wanted. It is slightly different than other listings in Airbnb in that it is not a "spare room" in someone's home where you are provided breakfast in the morning. It is a business and there is an on-site manager, and if you want breakfast, you need to have brought it with you. I didn't mind that in the least. To be able to stay in central Derry, this was great.

About
I was born in Derry and have runsuccessful and award-winning tourist-accommmodation for over 10 years. I am lucky enough to own a luxury river-front Apartment and also a 7 bedroom Townhouse, both in the city-centre; which I rent out to couples, familes and vacationing professionals on short-term stays. Sometimes (website hidden) guests who are Students, Professors or Professionals come and stay for longer at my properties, one even booked for 3 months! The apartment is very high-end and and luxurious. It really has the 'wow-factor'. You pay more and you get more! I work as a professional tour-guide with US travel TV star, Rick Steves. This year I had the honour of being one of 4 judges in a very high-profile competition organised by our national newspaper, the Irish Times - my job was to use my expertise to decide "The Best Place to Holiday in Ireland!" To stay true to my backpacking roots, I decided to open up my 7 bedroom Townhouse in the exclusive 'Lawrence Hill' area (city-centre, 1 minute from the University) to budget-conscious visitors, who basically want a cheap room with a great location. These rooms are £25-£50 depending on whether it is 2 or 6 people in the room, some of the rooms are HUGE, and ensuite. The Lawrence Hill property is quite lovely in my honest opinion, but several of the guests there have proved a little harder to please. Most think it is a great place and excellent value for money, i just need you to know that it is a room for a cheap price, it is not Buckingham Palace, nor does it have the wow-factor of my riverfront apartment, But for the price, most guests think its great, check out the pics on my airbnb.com listing. I will be happy welcome you to any of my lovely properties and to help introduce to you my beloved home region of Derry/Donegal. Needless to say, free Travel tips/advice is my speciality Le meas (with respect in Irish Gaelic) Steve McPhilemy
