Derrin Guest House B&B
Ranked #1 of 7 Larne B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 17, 2010

We have used Derrin House for a number of years on short trips once or twice a year visiting a relative. What had previously been just a pleasant B & B has been transformed by its new owners into a greatly improved Guest House, well deserving its 4-star rating. Bright, comfortable and cheerful, it’s ideally located for access to the ferries to and from Scotland and as a base for travel further afield in N.E. Ireland. Rooms are comfortable and well provided; breakfasts generous and quickly served. Siebe and Ivy are unfailingly friendly and welcoming and also sensitive to our variable arrival and departure times. We would unhesitatingly recommend it.

We stayed here for the night before a ferry sailing. Easy enough to find. Lovely old house, tastfully modernised. We has three rooms, and every one of us slept well. The beds were very comfortable, and the rooms warm. Lots of hot water, really couldn't find a fault with this accommodation - and I've stayed in lots of b & b's. Very convienent for the ferry port.

My family and I selected Derrin Guest House for the lovely room that allowed my young family to reside together during our stay. The website showed a lovely picture of the room that we selected when placing our reservation and we were not disappointed when we arrived. The room was very well furnished and we slept fitfully and comfortably during our stay. Ivey and Siebe, the proprietors, assisted in selecting restaurants to dine at for dinner, and provided direction cards to assist in locating the restaurants which I found very useful. Derrin was very well located in Larne providing easy access to all the points that either a tourist or commuter may require. I did not notice any undue concern with regard to quietness as reviewed elsewhere and can only say that our stay was both pleasant and enjoyable. We would gladly return to such lovely hosts and accommodation. Tracey and Duncan

Derrin is the best best guest house I've ever been to. All house is very clean and cozy. My room was nicely decorated with modern bathroom. Downstairs there is charming dining room where in the morning is served delicious Irish breakfsat. In guest room you can use computer conected to internet or if you have your own laptop there is free wi-fee. It's nonsmoking place what is big advantage.
Ivy and Sibe are very friendly and heplful. They give you useful suggestions about restaurants in area, places worth to visit, etc. They do their best to make u feel good and satisfied.
I can't not to mention that Derrin Guest House is very well located. It's in the centre of lovely, small town - Larne which is fantastic base to tour the Antrim Coast, see Belfast or take ferry to Scotland. It's also not far from Belfast International airport. The guest house has an express bus stop to Belfast right outside the front door. It's a 5 minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes from ferry port.
I'll be staying in Derrin Guest House again on my next visit and I would highly recommend it!!!
Best regards and thanks for your hospitality!

We arrived at about 10.30pm. Immediately upon greeting us the owner delivered a very stern lecture about the need to remain very quiet to avoid disturbing twins and a hard working contractor. We are a middle-aged couple and hardly likely to paint the town red. At breakfast the next morning there was a laminated notice left on our table urging us to be quiet and another one on the back of the front door reinforcing the message. The bed was shockingly uncomfortable but the room was clean. We won't be back.
