The Saddler's House


The Merchant's House


These two charming, family-run, bed and breakfast houses are situated in the centre of Londonderry.  They offer comfort and elegance.  Both houses are of historical and architectural interest. They provide an unique experience for their guests.  A warm welcome awaits you at both houses.  Books are provided in the rooms and the owners speak Spanish. All of our properties are within walking distance of most of the city’s amenities and major visitor attractions.

The Saddler’s House, 36 Great James Street, is a tastefully restored mid-nineteenth century Victorian townhouse situated in a Conservation Area in the heart of the historic City of Derry/Londonderry. Built in 1871 for William Dickson Esq., saddle maker, the house remained in the possession of the same family for over a century, until it was bought by its present owners in 1978. Most of its original features survive and there are many pieces of fine old furniture in the house.

You will find the Merchant's House, 16 Queen Street, to be an aesthetically charming and accurately restored mid-nineteenth century townhouse. It is one of the few grand Georgian houses in the city that is still used as a residence. With most of its original features intact and furnished with period features, a stay in the Merchant's House allows guests to catch a glimpse of household life in Derry 150 years ago. This house is an appropriate base from which to visit the interesting and historical walled city of Londonderry.
