Fodor's Expert Review Causeway Hotel

40 Causeway Rd., Bushmills, Co. Antrim, BT57 8SU, Northern Ireland

Owned by England's National Trust and flaunting a stunning location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this 1840s hotel is less than a half mile from the celebrated Giant's Causeway. Ten older rooms have been fully refurbished and freshened with a calming shade of duck-egg blue. The main restaurant has bright furnishings and serves food noon–3:30 and 5–8:30. Warming dishes on a cold day may include chowder, sirloin steak, a selection of fish, or goat cheese penne pasta.
