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. Failing to do so will result in an extra charge for any unused/unsold beds in your room. Thank you for your consideration and understanding of this policy.

In case of non-refundable bookings you will be charged the full 100% anytime after the booking has been made. View House Rules

    Great location by the causeway, assuming you like walks or have a car. Nice variety of free breakfast. Make use of the £8 daily bus pass for the area, if you have a full day there.

    It was like stepping out of the world made of steel and concrete into a old book. Waking up every morning to the sun shining in a tiny house in the farmlands of Bushmills. Only moments away from one of the best hiking paths I've experienced; The Giants Causeway. I thought I'd stay the night and stayed the entire week. Took my time and hung out with the hostel staff and enjoyed the absolute peaceful area this place sits in. Safe, clean, generous breakfast and hot showers. My favorite place in NI.

    One quick night at Finn McCool’s was all we needed to truly appreciate the Giant’s Causeway. Walking distance from the visitor experience made a sunset picnic easily attainable and then the included breakfast in the sunroom was the top of the morning. Great staff and good craic, would definitely stay again if I ever return!

    A lovely hostel next to the Giants Causeway. Friendly staff, excellent value for money, clean and comfortable room. Staff was very friendly, the common area features a kitchen, a panorama dinning area and a hidden "cave". The bathroom is what I expected to find in a hostel a decade ago, but in the mean time hostels in general have improved a lot, and so the bathroom is clearly below nowadays (2022) hostel average, but still acceptable

    Staff were friendly, room was resonably clean and location was brilliant. I wasn’t in the hostel long enough to sample the atmosphere or try the food.

    Great hostel if you want to see the sunrise or sunset at the Giant's Causeway, but don't expect much else.

    Really liked this place! There was a cool and very homely vibe, mainly thanks to the welcoming staff, with a really cosy dorm. Perfect for the Giant's Causeway and the Causeway Coast bus, a little less for eating out/bars if you don't have a car, but you can buy some dinner from the hostel, and one restaurant nearby is open late. The sidewalk ends before the hostel but you don't have to walk too much on the road. The place is generally clean, except for the bathrooms that were not that clean.
