“Well equiped”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

House was very clean. It had all you would need to make it a home from home. Not just the bare minimum as some rentals but had all you needed to put on a full 3 course meal for 6.

If the weather is wet you have books, DVD's and games to suit for all ages and tastes.

Free WIFI pleased the girls who always need to keep their social media up to date.

Close enough to walk to all the attractions in the village of Bushmills.

Recommend the Bushmills Inn for the Sunday Carvery, The Flash in the Pan chippy for a out door traditional tea while watching the salmon jump in the river Bush out back.

Can cycle to the beach, the Giants Causeway, the heritage railway within a few minutes.

“We loved it!!”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We went to Ireland to celebrate my husband's birthday, and we took our 2 young children ( 3yo and 8 month old). We loved it!!
House is very clean, with everything you need for adults and children, including games and dvds and a little garden,
It's in a very quiet area, but just in the heart of everything. Very close to Bushmills Distilery, the Giants Causeway, the Rope Bridge and to the lovely beaches. You have a big folder in the house with lots of information, leaflets, maps...
We couldnt ask for more, and Jayne was just lovely!
We will go back for sure!

“Everything you need and more”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Staying at Bush Lodge was a real home from home. The facilities were great it had everything you needed and more. The house was spotlessly clean. The information folder that was in the house compiled by the owners was fantastic, lots of useful information to explore the surrounding area and further afield.

The owner Jayne couldn't have been more helpful even though you don't meet her as the keys are sent to you she was checking to see how things were going right from first booking contact to leaving day she was fantastic.

All in we had a fantastic stay at Bush Lodge - would definitely recommend it.

Many thanks Polly for your great review. So sorry you did not find the hairdryer. It is kept in the second drawer in the bedside table. Glad you had brought your own.

“Visit to Antrim coast”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This semi-detached house is situated on a quiet modern estate. The interior of the house is very clean and comfortable and well equipped. Bushmills is a lovely little town with some good eating places and individual shops. It is a good base for visiting The Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, Dunluce Castle and lots of other interesting places along the coast and in the glens. The countryside and coastline are stunning! We'll definitely be visiting Northern Island again.

“The perfect holiday”
Reviewed June 16, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

I've travelled Northern Ireland for the first time alone with my kids. Jayne was so very helpful and kind from the first email I've sent. She even arranged for some toys and games for my sons aged 3 and 5 so that I didn't need to bring too much stuff with me.
The kids and I thoroughly enjoyed the house. The kitchen is outfitted with everything you need even baking pans. My oldest loved George Bush, the teddy bear and took him into his bed at night. The washing machine was a gift given the way two boys tend to behave once they're outdoors. I enjoyed the DVDs in the lounge once the kids were in bed and the wifi connection is perfect. We felt very much at home. So much in fact that my sons asked if we could move there. The beds were of excellent quality (not a given thing) and the towels provided lush. If you travel with younger kids a cot and a highchair are available, too. I will definitely recommend Bush Lodge should someone ask me about an excellent house to stay while exploring the Causeway Coast. So many great things to see nearby and the beaches are wonderful.
