Rick's Causeway Coastal Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

This is a small cosy hostel in the pleasant sea-side town of Portstewart, and since the hostel is only 50 metres from the ocean many of the rooms have a sea view.

there is a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, relaxed dining area and an extremely comfortable common room featuring an open fire and lots of books.

The hostel is centrally heated throughout and has a variety of rooms, some 6 or 8 bed dorms, some family rooms and some double or twin rooms. A number of these are en-suite and for the other rooms there are showers with hot water available all day.

Check in can be up to 22.00 at night but if you expect to arrive after 20.00 you should contact the hostel to let us know.

The hostel has good bus connections with Belfast, Derry and all the sights of the Causeway Coast, so it is an excellant base for exploring The Giants Causeway, Dunluce Castle, The Old Bushmills Whisky Distillery, Carrick-a-rede rope bridge and The Mussenden Temple. For those with cars there is free on street parking immediatly in front of the hostel.

Portstewart itself has a pleasant sea front witrh a variety of restraunts and cafes or fast food outlets and some great pubs, including 'The Anchor', voted the best pub in Co Londonderry 2007. There is a beatifull 3.5 kilometre sandy beach, owned by the National Trust, boat hire and fishing trips from the harbour, golf courses and nearby horseriding facilities. For the surfers there are a couple of surf shops to meet their needs and to provide local advice about surf conditions.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Had a double en-suite room which was small but comfortable, the shower was fantastic, there's free wifi in the kitchen. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was great - next to the sea and a short walk from Portstewart main street.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

On a wet and windy day in November the welcome was made all the warmer by an open fire, much appreciated.
Bathroom facilities were clean and Rick was friendly and helpful although quiet.
