Time to take a slower pace of life. Step back to a time steeped in charm. From inglenook turf fires to hayloft snugs, there’s something to find behind every door – a secret just waiting to be unlocked. The welcome is warm and the fire always lit. So pull up a chair, there’s always room for a friend. Like a fine malt, the Bushmills Inn Hotel has matured across the years. The original coach house and stables are thought to date back to 1608, the same year that the Bushmills distillery was granted the first ever licence to distil whiskey. Over time the Inn took on many guises, from boarding house to bicycle factory. Careful redevelopment however has reawakened the Inn.The oak-beamed Loft with its fireplace "snug" is the gateway to the Mill House on the banks of the River Bush. Here these spacious and creatively designed guest rooms, discretely accommodating modern technology, all have their own sitting room area, small dressing room and, of course, private bathrooms. Located only 90 minutes from Belfast, 3 hours from Dublin and a short drive to world famous courses like Port Stewart and Portrush.
