Great service. Steve was super accommodating to all guests (& my husband and me - e.g. Preparing us a late dinner on arrival, laundry available, great breakfasts included. Nice atmosphere for groups of international guests. Recommend highly with perfect location by Giant's Causeway.

During a two week whirlwind trip through the UK and the Republic of Ireland, this was our favorite hostel. We loved the peaceful views of rolling fields in all directions and the clean and cozy rooms. It was also really nice that a big hot breakfast was included and prepared to order! We enjoyed being able to walk to the... More

Over the years I've stayed in many hostels, but this one rises above the rest. Besides it's perfect location to the Causeway (and just a bus ride away from Bushmills Distillery), the hostel itself has an amazing homey vibe. The owner pampers you with great meals and a genuinely friendly personality. He just brings everyone together and you find yourself... More

We have stayed 2 nights at the hostel and absolutely loved it! The staff was extra nice and helpful. We wanted to see the carrick-a-rede rope bridge and they recommended us taking the bus there and then walk our way back - some 4-5 hours walking but definitely worth it! The footpath goes along the coast and over a beautiful... More

Both my friend and I stayed at this place while visiting the Giant's Causeway for a night. Upon arrival (which was warm, and welcoming) we did a quick check in before running, and doing the tour; however when we got back the place was alive with energy. There were people enjoying the sun room, talking with other travelers, eating, the... More

This hostel was in a great location, only a 5 min walk from the Giants Causeway. We were in a dorm of 6 people. I was sceptical at first about the beds but I slept really well both nights we were there. Breakfast in the morning was great, and the facilities were all good. Basically, for the price we paid,...

After two average hostels we found here a perfect hostel. Wonderfully cute hosts. Super nice people were there and it made the evening a cozy atmosphere in the common room. It was really wonderful and we miss the time now. I can only recommend to everybody and I think this will be not be topped in the next few days.... More

I absolutely adored Finn McCool's Hostel which sits just outside Bushmills and is literally at the front door of the Giants Causeway. A tad quirky but super cool, the sun-room was my favorite place to hang out. If you don't have a car make sure you bring supplies as it is outside of town, but it is only a 2... More

Spent three nights at Finns on the causeway. It is about a 2 minute walk from the entrance to the causeway in one direction. Hike all day along the coast all the way to the rope bridge. Other direction hike to dunluce castle or Bushmills. About 15 minute stroll to the beach. What a gorgeous spot. It is about 2... More
