Good Hotel Guide Review
Travellers have been making their way to this coaching inn along the Causeway Coastal Route since the 17th century, drawn by its peat fires, cosy nooks and convivial, wonky-timbered bar. Today, the up-to-date bedrooms, each with a sitting area, have all the modern amenities (tea and coffee, bathrobes and slippers); many have a partial view of the River Bush. ‘Our room was excellent, and very quiet.’ In the public rooms, choose an ambience to suit. Eat modern dishes in the garden-facing restaurant or alfresco on the patio; hunker down in the Gas bar, still lit by Victorian gas light, for a Guinness-and-oyster pairing and a Saturday-night live music session – ‘a real plus’. The world’s oldest distillery is a short stroll away.
