Just back from a family break of 2 nights in a family room for 2 adults 3 children. Room excellent, very spacious, two rooms one shared bathroom. Could have fit 5 children 👍. Spotless with great facilities. Staff excellent went above and beyond. Food was "fantastic" quality quantity and value. Breakfast sets you up not to bother with lunch 👍.... More

Took the scenic route along the stunning Antrim coast and after all that walking the Smugglers Inn was a welcome retreat. The staff were friendly and efficient even though it was very busy and the food was delicious. Looking forward to visiting again soon

Large, clean rooms with a great view towards the Giants Causeway. We stayed there for 3 nights whilst touring the Causeway coast and the food was so good, we ended up eating there every evening. Breakfast was delicious too - full Irish breakfast or whatever combination you choose.

Will start with the positives! Good location for Giant's Causeway, evening meal was fine, most of the staff very helpful. We only stayed on night and having been shown to our rooms on first appearance all was well.

The worst meal I've had in a while. Steak was cooked nicely but not seasoned. Chips seemed to be made from lunchtimes roast potatoes, pepper sauce watery and bland. Food all over the floor. Manager had a fairly aggressive manner. Would not recommend.

Stopped off on the way home for a bite to eat about 7pm in the evening. Although we did not book managed to get a table and were served quickly. Kids ate all of their food which is a good sign and I had the cod which was lovely. My wife had a stir fry which was very filling and... More

Me my Mrs and 2 daughters stopped here for food after visiting the giants causeway. I don't think any of us finished our meals. Not that they were awful but they weren't great either. I wouldn't go back and didn't find the menu very interesting

Enjoyed the layout of the venue i enjoyed the clam chowder starter and then the steak perfectly cooked although it never came with a sauce . It was a wee bit pricey but perfect portion size kids loved the food. With so many other venues around i doibt il go a third time unless theres a menu change.
