Anyone recommend an independent (ie not a chain) hotel for me and my sister who are planning on visiting the Antrim coast in September? Will have a vehicle, but would be out walking etc. Looking for separate rooms, at least B&B.

Bushmills Inn
Londonderry Hotel
Ballygally Hotel
Galgorm if you have the money

Thanks. On a budget, but prepared to fork out for a decent nights sleep! Would rather put money into locals' pockets than some international chain.

I stayed here last year - it is the other side of the Foyle but in a beautiful place - I used the ferry to get over to Magilligan but it seems it's not running yet this year and is in doubt.

Check out The Smugglers near Bushmills. It's actually within walking distance of The Giant's Causeway. Family owned. Live traditional music most weekends, but check with hotel. Basic but clean. Decent breakfast.

Bushmills Inn nearby is beautiful but expensive.

Royal Court near Portrush is good and has great views. Food good.

Note... Balygalley Castle Hotel is part of a chain.

The Bayview Hotel Portballintrae, beside Bushmills and Giants Causeway.
