Property Description


Voted the best hostel (#1 as per ratings on in Northern Ireland 2011 at the Hoscar Awards.

Finn McCools is a small, very personal hostel in a great location. It's located less than 200m from Giant's Causeway and the ocean, with fabulous panoramic views along the coastline across to Portrush and the North Atlantic Ocean.

The hostel is located just below Giant's Causeway, 2 miles outside Bushmills.

It's a simple house conversion and our vision for Finn McCools is simple: to provide you with a clean and comfortable bed, good food and exceptional staff to make your stay unforgettable!

*Please note* If you have a minor under the age of 18 years old in your party, please book the entire room as we cannot lodge other guests in the same room with a minor.

    Absolutely perfect! If you’re accustomed to staying in backpacker styled accommodation and comfortable with sharing space with others then you will enjoy Finns. It has everything you need and inspiring views of the area. It’s is located 2 minutes from Giants Causeway and you can use the regular coach which is 1minutes walk, to get around County Antrim. Its also perfectly located and easy to catch local transport and the daily 221 bus to Belfast and/or other areas in Northern Ireland.

    Absolutely fantastic location, at a stones throw away from the causeway. I did a walk from Balintoy and it was perfect to find the hostel two minutes away from the end of my walk. They sell frozen pizza and cans of beer which is handy. Price is reasonable given a four mile round trip to Bushmills, the nearest village. Staff were OK, as was the room. A very conveniently located hostel.

    Friendly and helpful staff, the hostel is clean. We had a two bed shared room; no hooks or shelves, only one light. Shared bathroom could do with renovation. The kitchen was clean and reasonably well organised.

    It's main selling point is its proximity to the causeway which is literally 100 metres up the road. It also has great views of the coast. However, it is worth bearing in mind that without a car the nearest town, and thus shops, is about an hours walk return. They do sell food and drink (of all kinds) at the hostel, but the latter is frozen food so not the best.

    Perfect location! Within walking distance from the Giant's Causeway and the bus stop. The staff were wonderful! The bathrooms could be better though. One of the showers was slow draining. I like that they sell some frozen food you can cook since it is far from any supermarket. I was unlucky to have the worst roommates that night I stayed there but then it's not the hostel's fault. They probably could be stricter with security so that unwanted non-guests were not able to get into the room.
