Bushmills Holiday Homes Antrim

Bushmills is a village on the north coast of County Antrim. The village’s name is derived from the River Bush, one of Northern Ireland’s main salmon rivers. The village itself has a unique North Antrim quality and has over 90 listed buildings.

A walk along the Main Street in Bushmills will reveal the odd shop or bar that can only be described as living heritage.

The village is best known as the location of the Old Bushmills Distillery, founded in 1608, which is the oldest licensed distillery in the world. The distillery is the only Irish distillery using 100% malted barley in its whiskies, in a range which includes Bushmills Original, Black Bush and a range of malts, including the Bushmills 12 year old malt.

The world famous Giant’s Causeway is located 2 miles (3 km) north of the village.
