Situated in the town of Bushmills, close to the Giant’s Causeway and only a few minutes walk from Bushmills Distillery, this Inn was once a Coach House dating back to the 1700’s and is the oldest tavern in the village.
The existing property was renovated by the current owners around 2013 to provide 5 guest rooms to the first floor above the public house accommodation. These have proved extremely popular and the annual occupancy rate has risen to 70% in the short period of time.
The property is set on an extensive site.
Furthermore, full planning permission is available for a major extension to the rear in a 2 and 3 storey building to provide additional restaurant, bedrooms and self-contained apartments. This could readily be reconfigured to provide a generous boutique hotel in a location which is a tourist destination and with the Open Championship coming to Royal Portrush in 2019 and new attractions opening soon within Portrush itself, the future looks bright for such a development.
Gross internal floor area of approx. 2,400 sq.ft.

Planning permission was obtained in May 2010 (Ref: E/2009/0376/F) for “Extension and internal renovations to existing public bar to form a range of “Guest Inn” rooms (comprising of family suites
or bedrooms), restaurant, associated ancillary works and a separate garage & self-catering unit to the rear of the site, along with appropriate site works”.
We are advised that by implementation of the renovation of the works to the existing first floor bedrooms, the development had thereby commenced and as such the approval for the remainder of the works remains valid.
Prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries.
