The Space

2 Kingsize Bedrooms with lounge sleeping up to 6 as a family style unit or as separate bedrooms; we can provide one room as single beds if requested; shared lounge when booking rooms separately; tea and coffee and also nice patio area.
Single Occupancy will be charged at £55 per room; please ask for offer if you are travelling alone and also for more than one night; Room 2 would be a good choice for you as it has its own private entrance.

The annex is situated in the most beautiful area of Ireland, and is close to many historical sites, beaches, golf courses and bars and restaurants. We are just minutes from The Giants Causeway. The Causeway was created by a volcanic eruption some 50 to 60 million years ago, but local legends claim it was created by giants! The Causeways information centre explains the legend and will capture the imagination of children and adults alike! After visiting the information centre you can take a walk along the beautiful Northern Irish headland, play on the hexagonal lava columns, and then enjoy an ice cream in the sunshine.

Bushmills Whiskey Distillery is also just minutes from the annex. The Old Bushmills' Distillery provides guided tours where you can witness the 400 year old distilling process, and get a little sample at the end!

This area of Northern Ireland is a golfers paradise. There are several courses ranging from pitch and put to professional, and all benefit from beautiful coastal views, and stunning rolling Irish green hills.

After a busy day sight seeing, golfing and walking you can sample some of the finest cuisine Northern ireland has to offer. There are plenty of pubs in Coleraine, Bushmills, Portstewart and Portrush, that serve amazing, locally caught fish, proper Irish potatoes and locally made ice cream. One local treasure is Ramore Head Wine Bar, which not only serves delicious food, but also benefits from stunning views over the harbour and Irish Sea.
Bushmills area itself offers fine dining with many star rated eateries; we will have all this information at the smithy.

Please note that if you are traveling as a family (2 adults, 3 kids) we have a nightly rate of £99 if using just one bedroom and lounge....if you wish to book this please let me know and I will send you a special offer via the website function. I look forward to hearing from you! We can also do the whole annex for £140 sleeping 6

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Very nice location
    Very Nice location, attention for details and friendly host.

    July 2014
  • Very comfortable and private -- we had the whole annexe to ourselves and a separate entrance. Breakfast was fantastic and Denise was very accommodating about our individual preferences! Overall, a really cosy and homely place -- highly recommended!

  • Denise was really good at communicating before we arrived. We were a group of 2 adults, 2 teens and a 21-yr. old, so we had what felt like a whole apartment to ourselves, with two doubles and a bed in the breakfast room that was perfectly comfortable. The Causeway Smithy was lovely, with beautiful decor, plenty of room, and it was very clean. Denise was there to welcome us and made us feel at home. We were offered tea and biscuits when we arrived, and great advice about local spots. We had a nice full cooked breakfast but no brewed coffee, only instant. Linens were plentiful but bring your own toiletries. A very enjoyable stay.

  • We loved Denise's place! It was very cozy and comfortable. Both of the rooms we booked were well prepared and cleaned.
    Denise is a wonderful host! She made a delicious breakfast and she gave us precious suggestions to visit the Giant's Causeway.
    Her house is perfect to reach this place, that is only a few minutes away.
    Strongly recommended!! ;)

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Denise's home, we were in an extension to her house so we had total privacy. There was 3 of us and we had a room each to sleep in, even the sofa bed I slept in was comfortable. The decor is lovely and tasteful, and the breakfast was very nice, we enjoyed the fresh strawberries and the still warm croissants, as well as the porridge bowls which had a few blueberries on top. Denise was very friendly and gave us useful advice about our options to eat out and how to get to the Dark Hedges (an amazing avenue of trees). She also kindly turned the heating on for us as the evening was a bit chilly and the house was very cosy. It's a handy location to visit the Giant's causeway.
    The only minor points were the coffee that was instant and not freshly brewed for breakfast, and the morning traffic bothered us slightly as we are light sleepers. Overall we were quite happy!

  • The Smithy's is a dream! Lovely decorated to every detail, very comfy beds and warm, soft duvets, games to play in free time, coffee/tea facilities with lots to choose from. I have to mention bath robes - amazing!

    Denise is a gracious host, she made sure we have everything we need, gave us some tips for dining and made delicious breakfast in the morning, with my vegetarian diet more than taken care of. I must say it's one of the best places I've ever stayed in and I do travel a lot. My dad, who was visiting with us gave it 4 stars :)

    Also, location is more than convenient, close to Giant's Causeway, Rope Bridge, Dunluce Castle and amazing Whiterock Beach in Portrush.

    I will definitely stay with Denise during my next visit in Northern Ireland.

  • We had a wonderful last minute trip to Denise's B&B. She was incredibly accommodating to our late check in and my vegetarian diet. The room was lovely, very cosy and a really comfy bed! It is a perfect place to stay if you want to visit the Giant's Causeway and Game of Thrones filming locations like Ballintoy and the Dark Hedges. I'll definitely be back for a longer stay next time! :) Thanks Denise!

    January 2014
  • We were made very welcome on our arrival and given a great suggestion for dinner at a nearby restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable. Ideal location if you are exploring the coast by car or bike. Very close to the Giants Causeway and Bushmills itself.

    August 2013
  • Very nice accommodations and hosts. Breakfast was delicious! Denise was very helpful in pointing out local attractions including a great place to hear some fabulous local music.The BNB was very easy to locate.

    July 2013
  • I stayed with Denise for 2 nights during a 4 night visit of the Antrim Coast. Denise was a wonderful host and I wish I had stayed with her for all 4 nights!
    The accommodation is very modern and clean whilst still being homely. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast delicious!
    Denise was the perfect host! Attentive and kind and full of helpful suggestions and at the same time gave all the necessary privacy so I felt completely at home!
    The location is perfect- 5 minutes outside Bushmills- so really close for the great restaurants but you are able to really relax and enjoy your holiday.
    I cannot fault Denise. She was wonderful! Don't bother looking at any other b&b- this is the one you want to stay at!
