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.
