I really liked Derrin House - it is a spacious old family home and no surprise that it was formerly owned by a doctor's family. We had room 5, and with windows to three sides it was spacious and airy - a pleasure to be in. Breakfast was excellent, too. The host, Ivy, was very friendly and helpful (as she... More

Thank you for your lovely review. You took advantage of our speicial offer of a free bottle of wine as you booked on our own website and mentioned the offer at the time of booking. You were able to take the wine to one of Larne's BYO wine restaurants so it came in handy! We were delighted to hear that... More

We arrived to a personal greeting from the lovely Ivy, settled into our comfortable room and headed to check out some local recommendations. Beds comfortable, good pillows, and a very yummy breakfast! Highly recommended.

Service and hospitality was excellent. Upon arrival we were greeted by Ivy and given the usual information of where things where within the house and told about the local parks and shops (which is around the corner and made for a lovely walk that showed of the towns atmosphere on the main street). Wish we had time to explore this... More

We stayed here for 1 night as we were attending a wedding at Ballygally Castle near by. The location is very convenient to drive to/from the airport and you can walk to a number of different amenities in Larne itself. Our room, room 5, was very spacious, lots of natural light and very quiet. The breakfast the next morning had... More

Ivy was a breath of fresh air and assistance for us as we blew through town trying to pack too much into a short stay. Our rooms were lovely and quiet and clean--the TV worked, unlike a few other B & B we have stayed out (New Prime Minister and much news we were anxious to catch up on) the... More

I always start and end my Irish driving holiday at the Derrin. Coming from the east of Scotland, I find it a great stopover after I get off the ferry, and prior to going home again. It is a pet friendly B&B, so I always take my little dog. The staff are friendly and helpful re directions and places of... More
