“Just the Irish welcome we were looking for!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

We arrived late in the evening on 11/23/13, and were warmly greeted. We were exhausted after our 13 hour flight and 4 hour drive, and we looked forward to the rooms we had read so much about on Trip Advisor. While small, the rooms are clean, and quite comfortable! Our room faced the Main Street, but even on a Saturday night there was no excessive noise. We headed out too early for partake of the full breakfast, but were offered tea/coffee and toast, which we gladly accepted. Great hospitality, great price, and a clean room in a great location.

Finn MacCools is a small B&B on the main street in Bushmills. It has a bit of a hostel feel, there's a pool table in one room and a bar downstairs. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is huge.
Rooms are basic, but very comfortable and have a good bathroom shower. Nearby pubs and amenities

Room Tip: Was made aware that there might be noise from the bar in rooms upstairs, but didn't notice much...

We stayed for a couple of nights whilst visiting the Causeway Coast. The accommodation is above the bar of a public house on the main street. Don't let either of these put you off! The rooms are clean and comfortabke, the food excellent and the welcome warm. A great place to stay.

We picked this somewhat randomly driving through, just from the clean appearance of the place, and we found we had struck lucky.

A friendly Bushmills pub with excellent accommodation, friendly landlord and landlady and locals. Good advice was given about where to eat.

And it has its own car park out the back.

They have plans to extend the accommodation further, and I wish them good luck.

The other reviews of this B/B are accurate. The rooms are over the pub, and the staff (an extended family) are lovely. We walked around town looking for a place to eat and felt really lucky to be staying at Finn MacCool's. The newsagents across the street are super, too. I don't understand why the Bushmills Inn charges close to 3 times the rate as this place. I really appreciated the local feel. I usually stay in hotels, but loved my stay here. It is also very close to the Bushmills Whiskey factory and many, many beautiful natural sites along the coast. The Giants Causeway is a must, and Dunclere Castle can be visited outside of their posted hours. We were told the tour wasn't worth the money - but you can walk around the ruins without paying a fee.

This is a great family owned B&B which when we stayed in April 2013 seemed to have been just renovated. The ground floor has a pub where you can easily have a pint or two over good conversations with the owners and the regulars. The rooms are on the first floor, pretty and compact, and well maintained. We had a great stay with beautiful scenery and walks close by. The staff helped us with dinner suggestions and reservations at the Tartine which was fabulous.

Room Tip: Prefer towards the front side

Up above the pub / superb comfort, helpfulness, cleanliness. Wonderful walks nearby and the hosts full of local knowledge which they are most happy to share. A great breakfast to send me on my way - I'll be back!
