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

I went to Ireland with a friiend in April 2016, we were touring around and for our final three days stayed in this Guest House. The owner was very nice and gave us a choice of rooms, a larger room which only had a shower or a smaller room which had a bath as well. As I prefer baths we... More

We arrived from Belfast airport (30mins away) and the guest house had parking on the road and was well signposted. We had a twin room which was spacious, very comfortable and had a little sofa to relax. Ivy was o helpful in giving some great recommendations of places to visit - the nearby waterfall walk in the glen was brilliant... More

We were made very welcome on our arrival. The room is clean and comfortable. The location is very easy to find and has limited space for parking. Very nice breakfast. All in all it was a pleasant stay. I would highly recommend this B&B to my friends and family.

My mother and I stayed here for a night before getting the ferry. We had a very nice room and bathroom, the dog was welcome although not allowed to stay in the room unaccompanied which is understandable. Breakfast was lovely and all in all a great place to stay. We ate at Bombay Spice, an Indian in the high street... More
