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

Lovely pancakes, fresh fruit and bacon and syrup available most days as a breakfast special. Friendly welcome. Helpful hosts. Fast wifi. Nicely furnished rooms. Handy to train and ferry. Would recommend and would stay again!

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.

Stayed for two nights whilst visiting family, the room was fantastic, well decorated and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were excellent and the owners were fantastically friendly. An absolute delight.

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
