The Bushmills Inn Restaurant:
After exploring the Causeway Coastline, why not pull up a chair and exercise your taste buds instead?
Each dish is crafted from traditional roots, but with a Bushmills twist. We endeavour to source local produce where possible, bringing you a true taste of Antrim. Our fish are all caught in local waters while our pheasant once roosted in the MacNaghten Estate.
Sample our mature prime Ulster sirloin of beef, which has featured on the menu since the day we opened. Alternatively try our signature Dalriada cullen skink (above) – before indulging in something a little sweeter.
Then why not steal yourself away to one of the hidden nooks for a nightcap or be part of the craic and live music in the Gas bar – whilst putting the world to right over a Bushmills from our cellars private cask.
On the Map: Bushmills Village located just off the spectacular coast of Northern Ireland in County Antrim. The town is accessed via the A2 road, that connects the cities of Portrush (to the west) and Ballycastle (to the east).
Bushmills is the gateway to the Giant’s Causeway, a unique rock formation formed 55 million years ago by cooling lava flows, although according to local legend the symmetrical columns were part of a bridge to Scotland built and then destroyed by the famous Irish giant, Finn McCool. Similar rock formations can be found on the Scottish coast. The Causeway visible today is all that remains of the bridge. If visiting the Causeway be sure to take the cliff walk route so that you descend to the water’s edge and approach the Causeway itself from the east. The views across to Scotland and west along the coast to the mountains of Donegal are magnificient. Bushmills is also famous as the home of the world’s oldest whiskey distillery. The license to produce the famous malt whiskey was granted by King James I in 1608. Visitors can take a one hour guided tour which includes a tasting. Just west of Bushmills, the ruins of Dunluce Castle dramatically straddle sheer cliffs that plunge hundreds of feet into the sea. And of course you cannot leave County Antrim without testing your nerves on the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge which can be found just 6 miles east of Bushmills near the village of Ballintoy.
