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

    The staff is so nice! I highly suggest trying the home made lasagna and pasta that offer, it was great deal for the price and delicious. The bed was comfy and property was clean. We ended up staying a second night!

    Cosy clean friendly hostel with great views and only a very short walk from the Causeway itself. The hostel staff do a great job keeping the hostel clean and homely. And had some helpful tips about the local area to help us get the most out of our short stay.

    We checked-in at 6:30pm and our room wasn't ready: staff forgot to clean it in the morning. We had to wait 30 min. + in order to be ready. Internet did not work during our stay. Walls and floors are paper thin, so you hear people talking and walking at night. eGreat location, 2 min walking distance from Giant Causeway visitor center. Clean place, but have stayed in better hosteels in Ireland.

    This hostel is ok. If you are only looking for a bed to sleep in so you can be close to the Gaint’s Causeway, then this will work. However, you don’t know who are staff and who are guests which made it weird. There is nothing to do in the hostel. They have “homemade pasta” claimed to be the best in Northern Ireland…. It was a frozen pre-made meal in a box you heat up in a microwave. Honestly, I’d pay the money and stay at the Causeway Hotel at the end of the street.

    Average stay. Main complaint is with the staff- be prepared to feel like you’re intruding in a Spanish home! Staff members were cuddling, kissing on couch in check-in room… stayed up drinking all hours of the night, rude at check in/out- management ought to do something about this- I’m sure it’s cheap to keep them there but they’re wholly dampening guests’ experiences. Booked the double room which was great, although right beside the door that staff used to smoke (had to close window). Some necking going on
