We stayed at Derrin House last year. We were warmly greeted and our room was beautiful. We had the best breakfasts there we have ever had for a long time and we are delighted to be going back there in June for another stay. We would definitely recommend Derrin House to anyone. It was a little jewel in the crown!!... More

This B&B was so lovely, the host was amazing and friendly and the house was beyond up kept. We had breakfast in the morning which was fantastic. We needed to catch the ferry in the morning and this place was super close so added a lot of convenience. I would recommend this place to anyone, was one of the best... More

We were in the quater-final of the Irish Hockey Trophy vs Larne on the 8th of March. Both Ivy and her husband were so accomadating and helpful to us, NUIG, throughout the orgainising of the trip. They did everything that was asked of them and more! It was a long 6 hour trip from Galway and when we got there,... More

We chose this B&B as it's just down the road from my friend's house and so very convenient when visiting from Scotland. The couple who run the B&B are very friendly and helpful. Our room was large and comfortable but exceptionally cold. A heater was put into our room and this problem was solved. Breakfast is lovely. Very well cooked.... More

Hi Douglas and Kim Thank you for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Derrin. The room was, unfortunately, cold as you arrived at 9 am which is several hours before normal check in time and I had forgotten to turn the radiator up the night before. We did solve the problem, as you say, by... More

House is located conveniently close to ferry. Pay attention when you get off the ferry. I missed a turn. House is close to town/shopping and also to some interesting buildings. Ivy was wonderful and knowledgeable. House is convenient to roads heading up coast. Room was nice and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Sitting room (?) was comfortable.

A warm, cosy and very comfortable B+B. Ivy was a great source of information about where to go and what to see. No problems at all about providing me with a gluten free breakfast. We ended up staying an extra night and would definitely recommend it.

I have stayed all over Northern Ireland as I work away from home but the Derrin Guest House was very special. I received a lovely welcome and was shown to a cosy warm welcoming room. Just what I needed after a long day. It is so clean and modern I would definitely recommend it and hopefully will be back very... More

We arrived late in Belfast with nowhere to stay and chanced across this fantastic B&B. Ivy and Siebe were great hosts throughout our stay and ensured that we saw all of the key sights of Northern Ireland. The room was very comfortable and our family of four slept well on the 3 nights that we stayed. The breakfast was superb... More

One night stretched to three and then you had to move on but glad you found us a useful base for visiting the Giant's Causeway and Belfast. If you return to Ireland, we'd love to... More

We enjoyed our visit to Derrin Guest House. It appeared that the house was fully booked so we were not able to get a larger room. It was quite small but we slept soundly and was treated very well by Ivy. I am a big man and have found that many B+B's in Ireland have small shower facilities. I would... More

This was my first trip to Ireland and after a long ride on the motorcycle from Dublin, we first rang the bell of the B and B over the road. No one answered, and so turning around, we saw a brown sign directing us to Derrin. The price was very reasonable, Ivy was very welcoming and soon settled us into... More
