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!

*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.

Had one of the best stays here. The dorm, bedroom, kitchen, and common areas were all super tidy and welcoming. The work away staff were the absolute sweetest and so so kind. If I had more time in Ireland, I would've stayed longer- so close to the Causeway, I went out three times over my short two days

The location of this hostel was spectacular, although if you’re hoping to eat out you’ll have to take a bus into town or walk 4km.

This hostel suited the purpose of my travels, although I think it requires a couple of improvements to make it better, particularly in the bathrooms. There are only two showers in the hostel, and it was full basically every night. I would travel here again simply because of the great locat

Worst things first. Shower - really really bad, dirty, old, needs repair, and only one for the whole place. Place bit damp, and window sill not dusted, tired furniture in common areas, for nearly £100 for 4 of us, not sure if I should expect much more. Bonus, there's is FOC toast and cereal for breakfast, instant coffee and tea bags. Best feature is location. 5min walk from Giant Causeway, nice views. Bus stop nearby if you are not travelling by car.
