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 and exceptional staff to make your stay unforgettable!

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.

The location of the hostel is pretty great but there were only limited bathrooms for multiple dorms which weren't as clean and hygienic as it should be. The staff was warm and helping but facilities could have been better.

The hostel was in an ideal location for exploring Giant’s Causeway and other attractions along the coast. It was right at a bus stop but about a mile outside of town. The staff were super helpful and friendly but the structure and facilities were quite old and in need of repair. The walls are thin and floors are creaky so bring ear plugs! Overall I did enjoy my stay there; there was a beautiful sitting area with a fantastic view!

Location was great for Giants Causeway but far to Bushmills. Although if you don’t mind a long walk it was beautiful walking along the bike path next to the water. The shower accommodations had room for improvement due to the water pressure be very low and the warmest water being luke warm. The breakfast was okay. We made some sandwiches from the bread that was out and only ate half so we could eat the rest for lunch. Then the next morning we were accused of stealing the bread. Overall OK.
