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.

Das Hostel war einfach aber trotzdem top. Die Mitarbeiter sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Vom Ort Bushmills konnte man viele Attraktionen leicht erreichen und der Ort an sich ist auch sehr schön. Das Familienzimmer war sehr schön.
