My partner, our step-daughter & myself stayed at Derrin for a week in the middle of August. First impressions were fantastic, lovely tiled floor in hallway. We were welcomed immediately by Ivy & Siebe who were very friendly. We were shown to our room which was very tastefully decorated. We also had a lovely view of Agnew's Hill from one... More

Stayed at the property for 2 nights before travelling to Troon on the Ferry. Property is well located just a short walk to the town centre and is a 15 minute walk to the Ferry Port. The property does not suffer from any excess noise and contains all appointments that guests would be seeking. more importantly, all appointments worked. Whilst... More

We spent one might at Derrin House, and would definitely recommend. Lovely and friendly hosts, and a lovely breakfast in the morning, can see why rated no. 1 in Larne. Nice quiet location, and well equipped rooms.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at Derrin Guest House. It is at the top of our list of B & B's we stayed at in Ireland. This was a family trip and we appreciated being given rooms on the lower floor so my mother didn't need to climb stairs. The rooms were appealing with lots of extra amenities.... More

Stayed at Derrin Guest House a couple of weeks ago. Very comfortable and spotless accommodation with excellent breakfast. Would definitely stay again if in Northern Ireland. Siebe was an excellent host and gave us tips for our trip around the Antrim Coast which we enjoyed very much. Ann & Stewart

Used this B&B twice when on my holiday to Ireland as it is very handy for the Ferry Terminal. A dog friendly B&B, but thankfully no 'doggie smells' anywhere - very clean. Friendly owners, a good Ulster fry for b'fast. Will go back if in the area again.

We stayed at Derrin for two nights in May 2013. Ivy was the perfect hostess. When our ferry to Scotland got delayed by almost half a day, we returned to Derrin and asked Ivy if we could use her wifi to change our international air tickets. We not only got to use the lounge and wifi, but also got hot... More
