“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

This place is a little hidden gem and is well worth the stay. Evertything about this place is excellent, it is clean, comfortable and has everything youu need, tea and coffee making facilities, extra blankets and towels, bathrobes, hot water bottles and you even have your own key so you can come and go as you please.
The hospitality was excellent, Denise is an excellent host so warm and welcoming.Areal home away from home. Denise made us a lovely breakfast in the morning made to order-nothing seems like to much for herto make your stay here brilliant.
Definitly would reccommend and will be back to stay again.

We stayed in the smithy earlier this week for 2 nights and the experience was fantastic. We were welcomed warmly and then shown the accommodation. It was a real surprise. So clean, comfortable and stylish. Everything was well thought out - extra towels, towelling dressing gowns and a hairdryer too. The lounge was such a lovely surprise as the whole place was so spacious. It is so private, yet you want for nothing. Tea facilities were left for us and when we arrived back after a night out, the heating and fire was put on, as were the lamps and the pot of biscuits added to the welcome! The breakfast is gorg -an ulster fry with tea and toast. The hostess definitely has the mostest and it truly was a home from home. Getting into bush mills town is only a taxi ride away so you can relax with a night cap or two. We only ever do hotels and were bought our stay as a gift, but would thoroughly recommend and would certainly stay again! The smithy is well deserving of its already 10/10 review rating!!

We have just returned from our stay at The Causeway Smithy, and feel we need to spread the word .Excellent accommodation , excellent food , excellent hosts ,good location , we could walk to The Giants Causeway,Our children 11 & 5 , did not want to leave , Denise had toys , games and colouring in waiting for them, and was so welcoming and friendly with the children, it was like home from home.With our own separate annex , it meant we could dine on our own at our own table , not disturbing anyone , and could easily come and go as we pleased as we had our own entarance .We will be booking in again soon and can't wait to do so !

This is one of the nicest B&B's I've stayed at in Ireland! And, the rate was so reasonable. Our room was clean and bright and had a comfortable king size bed, a beautiful bay window from which you could see the sea and the sunset, 2 soft white robes, and a bathroom en suite. In addition, there was a private entrance and a lounge for afternoon tea and morning breakfast. The lounge converts to a second bedroom which would be perfect for a family travelling together.

The Smithy is right on A2, so it was really easy to find. 6 miles west of Carrick-a-Rede, 2 miles south-east of Giant's Causeway, and 2.5 miles from the Bushmills Distillery. A taxi ride into town was just 4 gbp, which we took advantage of to have a night of dinner and drinks out.

In the morning, Denise served an elegant, yet traditional Irish breakfast. She was just a wonderful hostess. Our visit was just perfect.

Had a great stay at the Causeway Smithy which we discovered via a Groupon deal. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to find not just a lovely clean cosy bedroom with en-suite but an additional lounge area too. The accommodation was clean, bright and cosy and there were nice touches everywhere including toiletries, bath robes, tea & coffee facilities and plenty of useful info about local amenities. Denise was so welcoming and friendly, not to mention helpful, recommending things to do, places to go and gave us a great suggestion for where to go for an evening meal which we really enjoyed, she really went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. The bedroom was lovely and the bed was so comfy! In the morning Denise cooked us a full breakfast which was really really tasty and set us up for the day, and knowing we had been out for a few drinks the night before she brought us some iced water too :) we will definitely be back to Causeway Smithy!
