This was a lovely place to stay after we had traveled via ferry from Scotland to Ireland. It's in a great location and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff were very welcoming, especially considering we did not arrive to check in until quite late in the night. They gave us a quality breakfast and some good advice... More

We stayed for one night, booking several rooms with a small group. Our room was clean, well-equipped and nicely furnished. The breakfast was very good quality. Only one very minor quibble, if your breaks from home are as rare as ours you might not want to be up quite so early for breakfast, which is served 8-9am only, even though... More

Hi Thank you very much for your review. Glad you were happy with everything apart from the breakfast times. We did try a later breakfast at the weekend but found that it was not well received so we reverted back. There is, of course, always the exception that proves the rule! We look forward to welcoming you back to Derrin.... More

Unfortunately only managed to stay here one night between ferries. Everything was to a high standard and although I don't usually sleep well in a strange bed, I had a good sleep here. Such a convenient location for the ferry. Wife and I are semi disabled so it was great to have a room on the ground floor. Ivy did... More

Ideal location. The town centre is just round the corner and that famous North Antrim coast, just round the other corner. Very convenient for the Ferry Port and the rail station is close by. The accommodation was spotless and very well presented. The room was comfortable with all needs provided. Breakfasts were great. Ivy served very good food with a... More

We were sent here by a local hotel that was sold out. We were greeted by Ivy and shown to our room and given a brief "introduction" to our room and the house. We asked for dinner recommendations and she gave us several options. All sounded good and we settled on the steak dinner. Breakfast was pancakes with bacon and... More

Thank you for your lovely review. I am glad you enjoyed our breakfast. We offer the Irish breakfast every day and most days we like to offer an alternative as well such as the pancakes with bacon and maple syrup or pancakes with fruit or half and half. As you said, we are always happy to make dinner recommendations and... More

Very convenient to those arriving on the ferry, the rooms are snug but clean, well maintained, and the beds are comfy. Breakfast in the morning was proper, prompt, and cooked to perfection. We got a very warm welcome on arrival and good wishes on our departure. The neighborhood is OK for a nice brisk morning walk, and if you are... More

This B&B is quite nice, clean and roomy with guest lounge, wifi and a desk top with printer in case of need. The owners are very helpful and available to solve any problem. It is very close to the Ferry Terminal and if you have to leave very early in the morning and do not have time for breakfast, the... More

We stayed here because we arrived on the late Larne ferry from Troon and needed a stop over close to the terminal. WHAT A GREAT PLACE I was delighted with the quality of the room, clean, well equipped with a comfortable bed. The proprietor is dedicated to providing the best in all categories in her lovely house.

Very accommodating B&B and in a perfect location for the ferry terminal (you probably won't find better that's closer I think). The owner is a very nice lady who is very helpful. Accommodation is typical of the better end of B&Bs but pricey for what's on offer when you consider that Premier Inn rooms start at £29/night, hence the 3... More

Hi Thank you for saying that we are probably the best B&B in the area. Regarding comparing us to the Premier Inn (there is not one in Larne), the cheap rates that they offer are not inclusive of breakfast and there is no free cancellation. They offer a few rooms at a low price and then they become expensive. For... More
