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....

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.
