Located in the village that is home to the world’s oldest distillery, the quaint award-winning Bushmills Inn lies between the Giant’s Causeway and Royal Portrush Golf Club. Since reopening in 1987, the Inn has come to epitomize the true spirit of Ulster hospitality and has been outstandingly successful in recreating its origins as an old Coaching Inn. The welcoming glow of turf fires and oil lamps are just some of the features that give this historic inn its charming character. The quaint, individually decorated bedrooms of the Coaching Inn are complemented by the larger, cottage-style rooms in the Mill House. The bar, which is still lit by gaslight, is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of 25 year-old Bushmills malt whiskey from the hotel’s private cask, prior to sampling the culinary delights in the superb restaurant.
