The Bushmills Inn

At a Glance


  • the proximity to the distillery—never mind the Giant's Causeway—helps ensure it's a choice location with comfortable rooms
  • tourists and chatty locals cross paths in the bar


  • if you're tall, look out for the low timber beams
  • it's hard to leave—even with the distractions of the surrounding area

The Bushmills Inn Review

Innkeeper Alan Dunlop oversees this cozy old coach inn where you'll be welcomed by stripped pine, peat fires, and gaslights warming the public rooms. The livery stables house the informal restaurant, which serves fresh and hearty food, and the Gas Bar. Meals are satisfyingly filling with the dinner menu offering prime sirloin steak, Donegal salmon, and stuffed pork. You can also sample the 25-year-old Bushmills malt whiskey from the hotel's own private cask. With its soft illumination and intimate snugs, the Gas Bar is the ideal place to appreciate the music of Dick Glasgow and his band on Saturday night. The staff can provide a baby-listening service—you leave the tot in the room with a baby monitor, and they alert you to cries.
