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.

    A great place to stay. Excellent location, a stone throw away from the bus stop, train tram, Giant Causeway and Coastal route. Comfortable bed, small lockers for storage of valuables, generous breakfast ( cheap white bread, cereals, squash, tea or coffee, milk, jams and margarine) and wifi, comfortable communal areas.

    Although the facility is a little dated, it was clean and welcoming. My wife and I brought our 4 children. They had never stayed in a hostel before. The stay in this hostel was one of their highlights of our holiday and they loved the experience. The location is excellent.

    The hospital is in a great location, with a brilliant view of the coast, and with a great atmosphere. My only criticism is that it could be a bit cleaner - especially in relation to the bathrooms.

    Very Good

    Arrived no one there. There was a bell but no one came. There was a phone number so I sent a txt. I got a reply with a code for the lock box to collect my key. I found my room and the toilet but no idea where the showers were! I got a call from the owner who gave me good directions to the town and the name of a bar to get dinner. Next morning I met a girl who was working there. She told me where the showers were!!! The location for the causeway fantastic. Would say again because of location.

    Comfortable social space. Adequate facilities. Not suitable if dependent on public transport. Bus service ends at 1800 ish. Nearest shop is Bushmills. Nothing at Causeway.

    By road but quiet in morning and evening. Normal house so just one cooker and sink in the kitchen so could get busy. Kitch reasonably equipped but no tin opener . Noise travels easily through building. Floor level bunks are a nuisance but mattresses comfy enough. Some dorms quite crowded and a bit basic . Nice lounge , conservatory.Maintenance lacking - toilet seats falling off and vinyl floor covering litfting and becoming a trip hazard in my dorm.Low quality bread,cheese and ham at breakfast

    Sadly on arrival, we felt this was not a place we would like to stay. The general condition of the property and bathroom is poor. This was their response to my concerns raised: Thank you for your email and opinion. We respectfully totally disagree with your opinion but it is a free country and any one can have their own opinion........But our floors are not made of marble and the shower is not made of gold, that would be a bit difficult to afford for £41.17.

    Doorhandles were coming off, large holes in walls, dirty sinks etc. Really poor standard of hostel, although for £14 with parking and (a very poor) breakfast included, walking distance from Giant’s Causeway, you can’t complain too much. I didn’t feel hugely safe or clean here. Luckily there was nobody else in my room, although aside from staggered breakfast slots (where people still overlap) there are no COVID precautions in place. I didn’t see any hand sanitiser the whole time and no distancing
