Finn MacCool's Public House and Guest Inn

This was the first place we booked on a two week driving vacation around Ireland, and it was a good first choice. The staff immediately made us feel at home, and set a high bar for the rest of our stay. The rooms are all upstairs over the pub, but we did not hear a thing from below despite a lively Saturday night crowd; those old stone walls are thick! There is some street noise if your room faces the front, but it was never bad. Spending time in the pub with the staff, locals, and other travelers was one of my favorite things. But ask Tressa, Shirely, Phyllis or one of the other staffers about local sites and they'll give you a lot of good pointers. Just walking around the village is a real treat. Don't expect it to be very fancy or to be treated like royalty. But if you want to feel like "one of the family," this is a great place to stay!

Room Tip: Bring your own shampoo and conditioner!

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a two night stay and all I can say is what a wonderful, friendly place. The staff really make you feel at home and nothing is too much trouble. Unfortunately upon arrival a plumber was carrying out some works which meant that there was a lack of hot water for a few hours (hardly anybodies fault). Once the water was back on though what a shower!!!!! Just what was needed on a wet and wild day. The bed was comfy and the lack of tea making facilities was hardly an issue owing to the fact that the staff were all too willing to brew up! Massive breakfast, great location and an altogether fantastic experience. We'll be back!!!!

If you are heading to Northern Ireland, I would absolutely recommend staying at the big Giant's place, Finn McCool's Guest House in Bushmills. We stayed 2 night here and loved everything about this place. Lesley took us to our room, helped with the luggage and was super friendly. Lee and Tracy were terrific also. This was our home away from home! If you are interesting in getting a pint of Guinness, no problem, just walk downstairs and get one or take it to your room. This was one of our favorite places to stay. It is walking distance to the Bushmills distillery; the Giant's Causeway, Carrik-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Dunluce Castle, the Royal Portrush Golf Club are just a few miles away.

If you're heading up to Bushmills I would absolutely recommend staying here. The rooms are clean and comfortable, it's just down the road from the Giants Causeway and the distillery and you can walk to several bars/restaurants/stores. But you don't really need to because there's a bar on the first floor! (They also have a great breakfast) And for me the staff really made it a great place to stay as they were really friendly and helpful (got us an extra room when we misbooked and told us about some local non-touristy things to go see). Oh and the parking is plentiful and easy to get in and out of.

"Old World" inn spirit and atmosphere, comfortable bed, nice bar downstairs, but the first of all things - the people who run the inn. With only 5 rooms, they can afford - and do not hesitate - to give part of their souls to the job and entirely avoid that "conveyor system" feeling you may feel in a large hotel. In my case, one of the hosts, Lesley, gave me a lift to Coleraine when I was stuck due to scarce bus service on Saturday and all taxis in the area being engaged. Could you think of something as kind in a large metropolitan hotel?

I loved this place. The staff were welcoming, warm and friendly. The place itself has plenty of character and I slept like a log in my comfortable bed. Located near many of the big touristy sites on the coast especially Bushmills which is a quick stroll up the road. Unfortunately I had bad weather for my stay, but if I get back to NI I will definitely be staying at Finn's again.
