Larne - safe to visit?

    Hi guys,

    Strange post I know, but I was thinking of visiting Larne soon and was wondering if it's safe to do so. I've never been. Is it wise to travel there alone?

    Any input at all would be great.

    Kind regards,

    Perfectly fine.
    Stay in town centre until you get your bearings.

    perfectly safe.

    I worked there for 15 years

    Described in the Lonely Planet as a Dull soulless introduction to an otherwise beautiful county.

    There is no shortage of Union Jacks around the place but I had no issues parking my Dublin reg car there for the day last year.

    Lets just say its definitely not at the top of my list of places to re-visit to put it kindly.

    Perfectly safe but, unless it's for business or to meet friends or family, I can't think of any reason to visit it.
