Stopped in here for some food when on a family outing around the North Coast. Found that the welcoming was friendly and warm and the style and just vibe of the place was even better. Never stayed overnight so I have no idea what the rooms are like but the downstairs facilities have no faults, except one. The only thing... More

Rather pricy. I have not experienced any hospitality (described in the reviews), rather felt like a problem. One has to register via Facebook or give out a personal phone number (as other personal data, to I do not know what company) to have internet access. Internet is only available in the lobby, therefore in the evening there were a lot... More

After a wet and weary day of travel and hiking, the Smugglers Inn was a welcome sight. The food was served fresh and hot. Our waiter was owner who recommended excellent foods for each of us. We'll go back when we're next in Northern Ireland!

The hospitality we was shown by Joe and his staff was first class,Nothing was too much trouble for them. If you find yourself in the giants causeway area seek out this place. And if you stay the night you are... More

We stayed at this attractive N. Ireland Pub / Restaurant for just one night as we needed some "time out" from our hectic schedule and wanted somewhere that was friendly, comfortable and offered good Irish food. The Smugglers Inn did not disappoint. Our room had a great view out to sea and was very spacious with a modern bathroom that... More

No wifi that really works (one in the bar area thats about it) - but its solid quality with friendly service and a bit rough around the edges - but what it does it does well If you want a stop over in...

Lovely place with great views of the sea from our room. Was bitterly cold outside but warm and cosy indoors. Huge room with comfy beds and tea making facilities. Lovely helpful staff.
