Holiday Cottages in Larne, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Self Catering Holiday Accommodation

BallycastleLarne takes its name from the small medieval kingdom of Latharna meaning "descendants of Lathair".

During the 18th century many Irish emigrated to America from the port of Larne. A monument in Smiley Park commemorates the Friends Goodwill, the first emigrant ship to sail from Larne in May 1717, heading for Boston in the United States. Boston's long standing Irish roots can be traced to Larne. As with western and southern Ireland Larne, unlike some areas of north–east (Antrim, Down, Louth and North Dublin) and eastern Ireland (South Dublin, Wicklow), was hugely affected by the Irish Famine of the mid 19th century.
