Travelled from Glasgow to Larne by ferry and easily found this delightful B&B. Stayed only one night as we were on a road trip around the Emerald Isle. The owners were very attentive, recommended a good restaurant for dinner, had a lovely sitting room available for guests and cooked a delicious breakfast. When my husband had to go into Belfast...

I booked the Derrin Guest House over the booking.com website and thought that it looked quite lovely. When my husband and I arrived at the property, we were overwhelmed. This place has been lovingly restored and the decor was exquisite, while still keeping a personal, homely feel to the place. The owner showed us around the property, showed us where... More

We stayed one night in the Derrin and can highly recommend this accommodation. Breakfast is out of this world and is as good as any 5* restaurant. Particularly enjoyed the generous bowl of fresh fruit and freshly brewed coffee. The owners are very hospitable and keen to ensure that you have a wonderful experience staying in their town. They recommended... More

The house keepers are very friendly and very very helpful indeed! Rooms are clean with all mod cons and real cosy. Recently turned vegan so can’t comment on the food however, although the pancakes in the morning sounded very tempting :) Great location. Good price. Thanks again.

We stayed one night in the Derrin in a spacious family room. The room was spotlessly clean and really beautiful, with good tea and coffee making. The beds were very comfortable and a modern shower room. Ivy was brilliant with my two autistic children who asked her 1000 questions! Breakfast was excellent and again ivy went out of her way...

If you stay here with your dog, be prepared to be told off if they so much as look like they are going to spend a penny. You have to walk your dog in the streets to exercise them or there is a small area of grass 5 mins away which when I was there with my dog was littered... More

Before you made your booking you rang us to confirm that we accepted dogs. I confirmed that we are happy to take dogs providing they are not "walked" on our drive or in our garden and that you could take your dogs to a nearby park a few minutes walk away. You agreed to this and proceeded to book. If... More

We stayed at Derrin House last year. We were warmly greeted and our room was beautiful. We had the best breakfasts there we have ever had for a long time and we are delighted to be going back there in June for another stay. We would definitely recommend Derrin House to anyone. It was a little jewel in the crown!!... More

We chose this B&B as it's just down the road from my friend's house and so very convenient when visiting from Scotland. The couple who run the B&B are very friendly and helpful. Our room was large and comfortable but exceptionally cold. A heater was put into our room and this problem was solved. Breakfast is lovely. Very well cooked.... More

Hi Douglas and Kim Thank you for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Derrin. The room was, unfortunately, cold as you arrived at 9 am which is several hours before normal check in time and I had forgotten to turn the radiator up the night before. We did solve the problem, as you say, by... More
