Welcome to Bushmills, a unique conservation village on the Causeway Coastal Route and the closest commercial village to the Unseco World Heritage site of the Giant's Causeway and home to the Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery. For our main website please follow the link at the bottom of the page.
The settlement grew into a commercial focal point with the development of water powered industries. At its peak seven mills where operating along the river producing flax, corn, wood, iron and later in the 1800s, to generate power for the world's first public hydro electric tramway. Today it provides a natural service destination and stopping point for visitors to the Unesco World Heritage site located on the Causeway Coastal Route. Each June the village hosts the Salmon & Whiskey Festival.
