We stayed one night at the end of our trip in Northern Ireland before heading back to Dublin. The guest house itself is very charming, with a wonderful tiled floor at the entrance. We were 3 adults in one room, which was very tight, but sufficient for a night. It was tastefully decorated, clean and the beds were comfy. There... More

Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We do have limited off street parking but it is often easier to park on the road which is free and safe. There is space most of the time. You guessed right that Siebe and I are very well travelled. We have taken inspiration from places we... More

The accommodations were comfortable and the owner gave us a good suggestion for a restaurant recommendation. The owner also helped us get booked on a ferry to Scotland by contacting a travel company and then letting us use her cell phone to make all of the travel arrangements.

Considering we didn't get off the ferry until 9.30pm, our host could not have been more welcoming. We had a nice twin room and slept really well. Breakfast was fantastic, and lots of tourist advice was given on where to go next. This place is definitely on our list for a return.

This is a nice old home that could be really lovely in a different place but, positioned beside the wall of an ugly building ( not shown in web pictures), it is stark and unattractive. It's a pretty typical B&B. Our room was nicely decorated but very small for two people and luggage. A bathroom had been retro-fitted into a... More

We arrived in Larne at 7 p.m. and were lucky to find that Ivy at Derrin Guest House had one room left for us! The house was very tidy and cozy, rooms were clean and really nicely decorated! We had dinner in a recommended Restaurant that was brilliant! Breakfast was delicious and before we left, Ivy gave us loads of... More

We only stayed a night, but Ivy did everything to make it really comfortable. There was safe parking for our motorbikes and she gave us some very useful advice for visiting the Giant's Causeway and other places of interest. The breakfast was superb, a "special" smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.

We were made very welcome at this classy B&B. The owners were thoughtful and rooms very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Our classic cars just about fitted into the car park and the proprietors ensured that we were happy with every aspect of the B&B. Breakfast was excellent and presented beautifully. We highly recommend this little B&B for anyone passing... More
