The 10 best hotels in Derry


Belfray Country Inn
Belfray Country Inn is a 4-star hotel located 10 to 15 minutes outside Derry on Belfast's head to Derry Road. It is far enough outside the city to take advantage of the amazing Irish countryside, but close enough to access Derry's facilities (if you have transport). It has the look and feel of a country house, both in appearance and warmth and atmosphere. Belfray Country Inn is the opposite of a cold city center hotel. It's rather a home away from home. The rooms are well-equipped and modern and there are a variety of dining options, including a bistro and a restaurant. It is also a popular choice for weddings and business functions. Most importantly, however, is how visitors see The Belfray Country Inn. The answer to that question is very high – 97 percent of visitors consider The Belfray Country Inn to be "excellent" or "very good".

Everglades Hotel
The Everglades Hotel is a four-star hotel with a high-grade approval rating of 82 percent. It is set in green surroundings overlooking the Foyle River in a place just outside the city center. It is therefore very quiet as it is away from the hustle and bustle of Derry. However, a taxi to the city center costs only a few pounds. The rooms of the Everglades Hotel are comfortable and have all the amenities expected of a four star hotel in the UK. The lobby, bar and lobby areas of the Everglades are also very comfortable. Food is served at the bar, but you can also choose to dine in the fantastic restaurant, which is a favorite of many Derry locals. The restaurant is also where you will be served breakfast.
