I’m not sure about the bus services. Our host at the B & B dropped us off at the Smugglers & then we walked back - the B & B overlooked the Giants Causeway! Sorry I can’t be of more help.

Good afternoon, I do apologise I did not speak loud enough when I asked you to follow me through to the dining room. I happily moved you to another table when you didn't like the first 1 I had taken you to, on a very busy Easter weekend. The reason I asked if you were ready to order food considering our kitchen was just about to close was that our bar man was coming along behind me to get your drinks order. Kind regards, Yvonne

"We only visited the bar. Had children so restaurant was not offered."
"Ask for sea view if possible"
"Ask for the rooms at the front as they overlook fields with sheep in and you can see the sea even though it is a bit of a distance away"
"Ask for rooms with an ocean view"
"Front ones have ocean views"
