This is our third time staying here and it gets better every time. We love it here. The food is always lovely and the staff bend over backwards to make sure your staff is always great. You room is comfortable and you have WiFi for each room. Bushmills distillery is a must see if you went a Dram or two.

Booked to stay here for one night, the location was easy to find with lovely sea views and awesome Pirate flags. The double room, named 'Ballintrae', was massive, with a double bed and single bed, a table with chair to admire the view, wardrobe, vanity table and amenities, and the water pressure in the bath/shower was so good! Towels and... More

Decided to stay here after visiting the Giant's Causeway and was able to walk in and book a room for the night at the last minute at a reasonable rate. The room we had was very large and also had a large bathroom. We had dinner at their restaurant and must say, the food was very good. The best seafood... More

Stayed for one night with our 2 children as part of our Northwest Ireland road trip. I booked it mainly for its proximity to the Giant's Causeway. It's at least half the price of the Causeway Hotel, and only 5 mins down the road. It was very clean and the room was unbelievably spacious. We had a family room and... More

We visited Bushmill's Distillery and the Giant's Causeway. Both were interesting. The Causeway provided excellent views of the ocean. From one point we were able to see Donegal, Ireland and Scottland. Walking the trails along the cliffs was exciting.

We called in on Saturday evening without pre-booked a table for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We got a table and the ambience seemed good being about 1/2 full. Drinks order was taken and delivered quickly. Food came shortly after and was well presented. I had the barbecue ribs for starters and received a large portion for a starter, however... More

Good food at a reasonable price. We took advantage of the early bird deal which gives you a main meal plus a dessert or starter for the price of the main. Mainly standard pub food but I had the roast duck which made a really welcome alternative to to the burger/steak/pie usual choice.

We spent 4 nights here and found no fault with the room or the service. It's a great location for visiting the Antrim coast. The menu was varied so we ate in each night. Staff were always pleasant and helpful.

Myself and my partner stayed in the Smugglers Inn for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. Our room was off a great size with beautiful views. Everything you could ask for in a room really!
