I enjoy this place to eat when visiting the north coast. Reasonably priced,good service and tasty food. My husband always gets the Guinness pie. Such beautiful views when driving from Portrush to Smugglers. Will look forward to our next visit.

Drove past this place a lot of times and never been in till today. Thought we'd try it on the off chance. Walking in was greeted by very pleasent and friendly staff. Was taken to a table straight away. Looked lovely in side. Loved how it was old fashion looking inside. Don't get that now days. The service was very... More

On the upside this is an ideal hotel for a visit to the causeway, it is spotlessly clean, apart from the Causeway Hotel it must be the closest, and the people are very friendly and very helpful. On the downside it is getting a bit dated in parts and the food was at best average to good. The wi fi... More

Very nice hotel but a bit on the expensive side.Very nice bedroom and nicely tiled bathroom. A list of TV channels would have been useful. Guinness was over priced compared to other places. Restaurant portions are enormous! Very handy for the Giant's Causeway and Bushmills Distillery.

Booked 2 rooms through the Tourist Information on the night we stayed. We arrived late afternoon to a full, chaotic reception area that is disguised as a restaurant entrance with a sign that orders you to wait to be seated. The reception desk is hidden behind a support wall. We joined the end of a long queue only to be... More

I stayed here after walking the Ulster Coast Way from Portrush. Though the hotel is clean, the reception was not that friendly. I did not feel very welcomed. Perhaps it was because I came by foot and looked a bit ragged, but still was not happy with the dinner service either. The service seemed a bit hectic and unhelpful compared... More

We dined there because our first choices in Bushmill were fully booked. Fortunately it's a good adress and we enjoyed our meal. Quality ingredients and honest cuisine. Service was a bit slow but if you are not in a rush, it's fine.

Enjoyed our recent stay at Smugglers Inn. We only had two days to see the highlights of the area and this location was great. The accommodations were clean, cozy and well appointed. Very comfortable. The pub was inviting and food was very good. We found it a great place to relax after a full day of sightseeing. The breakfast looked... More

The food was amazing,we all enjoyed our meals, the kids really liked it and had a great atmosphere. Reasonable prices, would recommend it to others as a nice place to stop. Ideal location for the giants causeway and much less chaotic than the cafe on site!

We visited Smugglers Inn in late July, for 2 nights over the weekend for a wedding being held at the nearby Causeway Hotel. The hotel was perfect for us in terms of its location as it was less than a 5 minute drive to the Giants Causeway and was well priced for the area in which the hotel is situated.... More
