Description: one of Ireland's and the UK's most loved hotels which fuses traditional charm and bags of boutique luxury to deliver the best in hospitality in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Northern Ireland. Roaring peat fires, nooks and crannies and a secret library set the tone. In the bar, still lit by gas light, try a glass of malt from the hotel's private cask and make sure to sample some of the finest North Antrim produce in the AA Rosette restaurant.

“The place to live in”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Bushmills Inn is more than a mere restaurant close to one of the most famous attractions in Ireland: it is the very place you don't want to leave once you're in. Excellent food, wonderful and thoughtful staff, cosy fireplaces and log fires, the smell of the peat, wood panels, nice cosy rooms, it is even better in the middle of winter as the weather outside won’t let you forget that you face one of the most dangerous, although beautiful, shores in Ireland. Treat yourself to Bushmills Inn and you won't regret the experience.

“A touch of Class”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Booked dinner again at the Bushmills Inn and they came up trumps once more.The understated but fabulous service together with the quality and presentation of the food would put many a michelin rated establishment to shame.
This along with the ambience and setting made this meal one of the best we have had in a long time - well done to all at the Bushmills Inn and a big thank you!

“First Time”
Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

I have lived in Portstewart for 23 years and had never made the effort to travel the 15 minute journey to Bushmills for dinner before. What a mistake in my part, food and service were about the best you get anywhere, I would usually frequent restaurants in the Portrush / Portstewart area in truth some of these places could learn alot from The Bushmills Inn. Great experience. Many thanks!

“Cosy night fireside on a wintry night in March”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This traditional pub/inn was a delightful place to spend the evening with friends.
Open log fire and welcoming atmosphere.
The issue that spoilt experience concerned the pricing.
The meals which are quite pricey, did not include vegetables. I thought this habit had died out years ago.
The vegetables cost approx £3.00 per portion and the portions were meagre.
A main course listed at £12.00 became £18.00 per person - +50%.
Special occasions only in future I think.

“Perfect Way to spend a wet morning!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Called in here for coffee and scones after a long, wet walk. Great atmosphere sitting by the fire and staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. It is a long time since I have tasted such a perfect scone.....and I've tried quite a few!!! I recently attended a private showing in the 30 seater cinema and again the staff were very accomodating. Will definitely be back to stay!
