I really enjoyed the feel of this place. Loved the decor and just had a very homely sense to it. My mum and I just popped in for lunch on a day out to the causeway. Very handy location when visiting the giants causeway. Staff were lovely and had a good range of food on their menu. Will be back... More

My friend managed to secure a last minute cancellation for the Smugglers Inn for Saturday 17th December. We were attending an event in Bushmills so were glad of the opportunity to stay. This is a very well appointed guesthouse, close to Bushmills and the Causeway. The rooms are very clean and overall we had a good impression of the guesthouse... More

I did like this hotel. it has a welcoming feel and the staff are friendly, it's also only a mile walk to the causeway, which is a beautiful stroll. The rooms are not luxurious, the bed was harder than I like and the pillows were flat. We were given a huge room, 2 of us in a 5 person suite,... More

Very nice atmosphere and very pleasant staff who all appeared to be Irish. Despite only being about 15 years old , the Inn has plenty of character without being tacky. Ate in the very cosy bar tho only limited choice of beer. Food was average tho not dear. Nice lounge areas to watch the sunset. Got up at 7 and... More

We visited the restaurant, for lunch, and were warmly greeted in the reception area, and shown to our table. The menu wasn't extensive, however there were still plenty of options for us to choose from. I had the Creamy Chilli Chicken Pasta, and my wife had Chicken in a Mushroom and Tarragon Sauce, on a bed of savoury rice. Both... More

Comfortable room at the top of the hotel. We were there on a busy "airshow weekend" and we were lucky to get a room. Ours was at the top of the stairs and there were sloping ceilings to deal with, but the room was large and well appointed. We could see up and down the coast from there. The staff... More

I don't get up to the North Coast as often as I would like but when I do I like to stop off at the Smugglers Inn, just a short distance from the Giants Causeway, We called in for tea and were not disappointed. All three of us had different things from the menu and each one was great. The... More
