We have recently returned from a trip to Southern Ireland and Northern Island and once again spent two nights the Derrin Guest House in Larne, Northern Ireland. We were given the same warm welcome by the hosts who remembered us from our previous visit last year. Ivy is very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and recommends lots of places to... More

I had a long trip and i was to arrive late. I got in around ten and the owner welcomed me and my family. Very helpful, full of advice and guidance. We were to have an early rise before breakfast so he showed me where continental breakfast was going to be laid out. The sitting room has a mini fridge... More

Probably the best guest house I have ever stayed in. Beautiful room, home from home but better because every need is catered for. Lovely finishing touches which we really appreciated. The owners were incredibly helpful and were happy to spend time chatting, nothing seemed too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent with a varied choice. The house is beautifully renovated and...

We stayed in this lovely B&B while travelling around Ireland. This was our base and from there we travelled by train into Belfast. We also one day travelled to the many quaint towns around Larne. We had dinners at the Spice Café and The Wine Bar. These were recommended by the owner. We were given lots of ideas of things... More

Booked this guest house over 2 months prior to trip. Explained in the booking that we were bringing 87 and 89 year old parents with us on a reminiscing break. Arrived at 12.15 off ferry and phoned landlady to advise her we were here but we were going to have a drive around Larne before checking in. She said she... More

Hi. You have written a review although you didn’t actually stay with us. Unfortunately, when entering your online booking in my diary I inserted one room instead of two which I apologised for when you rang me. I arranged alternative accommodation for you a couple of minutes drive away and I understand that you all had an enjoyable stay there.... More

Wonderful warm welcome at this excellent B&B in the heart of Larne with hosts attending to your every need. Top class accommodation and excellent breakfast I was there as a business traveller and will definitely make it a regular stop. I would highly recommend Derrin Guest house whether on business or holiday.

Travelled from Glasgow to Larne by ferry and easily found this delightful B&B. Stayed only one night as we were on a road trip around the Emerald Isle. The owners were very attentive, recommended a good restaurant for dinner, had a lovely sitting room available for guests and cooked a delicious breakfast. When my husband had to go into Belfast...

I booked the Derrin Guest House over the booking.com website and thought that it looked quite lovely. When my husband and I arrived at the property, we were overwhelmed. This place has been lovingly restored and the decor was exquisite, while still keeping a personal, homely feel to the place. The owner showed us around the property, showed us where... More

We stayed one night in the Derrin and can highly recommend this accommodation. Breakfast is out of this world and is as good as any 5* restaurant. Particularly enjoyed the generous bowl of fresh fruit and freshly brewed coffee. The owners are very hospitable and keen to ensure that you have a wonderful experience staying in their town. They recommended... More
