Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Quality award winning Mill Rest Youth Hostel is located in the centre of Bushmills, best known for its world famous Irish whiskey, on the North Antrim Coast. This purpose built modern hostel has spacious, comfortable ensuite bedrooms in a range of sizes. The Old Bushmills Distillery is within a 5 minute walk from the hostel and the Giants Causeway World Heritage Site and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge are just 2 miles away.

The mezzanine style layout of our family bedrooms is a distinctive feature and the attached walled garden is an ideal place to relax or to have a summer barbeque.

Regular bus services are available to the Giants Causeway and free coach car parking is located directly opposite the hostel.

Walking tour tickets of the historic Londonderry/Derry City Walls can be purchased at the hostel.

Mill Rest was awarded the HI-Quality award in November 2010 which means we’re committed to offering a high standard of excellence.

A perfect location handy for public transport and access to the causeway coast. Everything was brilliant and well organised. The member's kitchen has a noisy extraction fan system linked in to the gas supply so must always be on. Perhaps too difficult to change but a bit of a pain. Very helpful and friendly atmosphere.

Waren Anfang September da. Hatten ein Zimmer für uns, da nicht so viele andere Leute in der Juhe waren. Das war gut. Die Selbstversorgerküche war nicht so besonders, viel zu klein, wenn die Juhe voll ist, Daneben gibt's eine große, gut ausgestattete Küche, die aber nur für Mitarbeiter zugänglich ist. Beim Einchecken wurde uns nur gesagt, wo unser Zimmer ist. Ein Hinweis, was es sonst an 'facilities' gibt, Küche, dining room, oder Aufenthaltsecke, sind wäre prima gewesen

Me gustó el equipamiento de la cocina y la posibilidad de tener habitación propia sin literas. Hay que invertir en pintura de paredes y renovar mobiliario porque las camas están muy deterioradas. Y la moqueta de los suelos muy avejentadas.
