“Expensive, but worth it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Good location if you're touring Causeway Coast or visiting Giants Causeway. Spacious and really nicely appointed room with large and comfortable bed. Contrary to some reviews, we thought the food was excellent; the tasting dish main course and the chocolate fondant and homemade ice-cream were outstanding. Breakfast substantial and service throughout faultless. Expensive, but worth the extra; no question. Be careful; it's necessary to book dinner in advance at busy times; being a guest doesn't guarantee a table when you might want it. Great bar with nooks and crannies. Only small complaint would be that the middle-aged band playing Irish folk music were clearly talented but deadly dull, as witnessed by them having a chat between numbers and only two of them getting stuck in and drinking Guinness....

We arrived at Bushmills Inn mid afternoon and were warmly welcomed by their helpful staff. The place is lovely and our (spacious) room was gorgeous with everything impeccably prepared for our arrival. Upon check-in we made reservations for dinner in the dinning room and we were so glad we did. The food was delicious and the service there perfect. If you are fortunate enough to spend a night or two here stay up and spend some time in the pub. The live music the night we were there was probably some of the best we heard in all of our 3 weeks of touring Ireland and we went to many, many pubs with "traditional" music. The musicians playing at Bushmill were wonderful making for a joyous evening! A gem of Ireland!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the countryside (Room 106)

Often used phrase but never more apt. Charming place, good service levels, turf fires and gas lamps, but let down by average food and non air conditioned rooms. I may be a bit unfair to Bushmills here. On a journey up the Antrim coast I found the absence of quality food pubs/restaurants remarkable. Compared to South and West coasts, no seafood emporiums, bistros, inns. Just the odd hotel of varying vintages with no great effort at marketing themselves. In the valley of the blind the one eyed man is king. Enter Bushmills Inn.

Room Tip: Ask for a fan, it helps.

As loyal followers of the Karen Brown travel guides, we found Bushmills Inn as one of the few recommendations in Northern Ireland, so planned a two night stay as our base for the local attractions of the Antrim coast. While the comfortable 4-poster beds and sitting area are important parts of the room, it was the small details that make me give this Inn the highest marks...a convenient switch for a bathroom night light by both sides of the bed, a changing closet with small refrigerator, an espresso machine in the room, comfortable tub with shower attachment and a lovely shower as well in the well lighted bathroom. Deserving of its Blue Book status.

Room Tip: Spring for the newer rooms with the 4-poster beds.

Visited here very recently and ate from the early eveing menu. We honestly couldn't have been more impressed with the food. We opted for the Bushmills burger and the presentation and quality of food was outstanding. The service was also good without being intrusive. The atmosphere was lovely with a warm fire on entrance. We certainly will be back!

Can't fault the place - rooms were big and well equipped for a country inn. Service very pleasant. Nice breakfast, free WIFI, bar with music and outside drinking space. Dinner in the restaurant was of a reasonable standard without being memorable. I would certainly recommend to anyone touring the area.

Al;ways wanted to stay in Bushmills Inn as I had heard so much about it and finally got my chance a couple of weeks ago.

Room was as expected as was the welcome - luxurious room, friendly welcome.

However bar and restaurant service lets it down.

As other have said, the "bar menu" is tiny and the portion size for the price is minuscule. Breakfast is adequate, but the service at breakfast falls far far short of what it should be.

Seating on old church pews - whilst they look good is very uncomfortable. Service is haphazard with five different people dealing with you, one bringing you to your table, one asking if you want coffee/tea, one asking if you want toast, one asking for your main order and then someone else delivering the order. (happened on all three mornigns)
Here's a suggestion - have one staff member per table to deal entirely with that table.

Bar - OK service, but simply seem very uninterested. Don't expect bar chat. Yes, the service is efficient - but when you are on a break in a wonderful part of the country, you don't need a robot serving you. And this was repeated in both the main bar and restaurant bar and on 2 different nights by different staff.

Overall - wonderful accommodation, but please please allow / train the staff to be more friendly/welcoming especially in your bar/breakfast area. - Though one girl with blonde hair did stand out head and shoulders above all others (unfortunately she was serving 2 other tables), maybe have others follow her example.
