Bushmills is a village near the coast of County Antrim, 60 miles north of Belfast. It's best known for its whiskey distillery - the flavour is distinctive. It's connected by a narrow-gauge steam train to the Giant's Causeway so many visitors combine the two attractions on a day-trip.
This small distillery village is well-served by buses from Coleraine and there is a fun little steam train running in the summer from Bushmills to the Causeway. Portrush, also with train station and bus connections is 6 miles to the west along the A2 road.
