Stayed one night in a comfortable room. Lovely house almost like home. The best part is the breakfast ! We have stayed in a couple of 5***** and 4**** hotels and as a chef I am fairly critical of bad meals. This simple B&B has the best breakfast in NI, local handmade sausages, dry-cure bacon and free-range eggs cooked perfectly,... More

Very nice B&B. Really good breakfast. Rooms are well clean and very comfortable. Owner really friendly. Good for kids too. Good value for money. Well stocked with towels and anything u need. Only 10 min from the ferry and near to the small city centre.

Stayed in Larne on a quick stop over on route to Scotland. This B & B is immaculate, bedrooms are comfortable with everything you could wish for. Hosts very welcoming and everything laid on including continental breakfast for those leaving on the early ferry. Would recommend.

We booked this last minute as we were on the 7:30pm boat from Troon. We arrived and were checked in with no hassle whatsoever. Our room was bright and clean with comfortable beds and a decent TV which was all we wanted after travelling. Breakfast was smoked salmon and eggs (plenty of other options available!) and was just delicious. Our... More

Arrived on the late ferry and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this B&B. Room and en-suite were of a high standard. Hosts were friendly. Breakfast was top class. Garage for storing bikes in. Perfect.

We spent one night at the Derrin Guest House. It was a great evening. The home was very clean which is very important to me. Close to the restaurants and comfortable beds. It was nice to be able to fix our tea or coffee in the comfort of our room. Ivy took the time to call several restaurants to get... More

The Derrin House was the perfect location to catch the train to other cities, and Larne is a beautiful little town. I arrived at the Derrin house late evening the 28th of March, hoping to take a tour of the Giant Causeway, within minutes Ivy was on the phone and had two tickets waiting for us. It was the best...

Spotlessly clean, nice room, stayed for 4 nights the end of March, on a rather difficult business trip, at least the welcome of Ivy and Siebe made things a little more easy. Breakfast never failed to hit the spot with something different every morning, many thanks.
