Tee time at The Bushmills Inn

After watching the world’s elite golfers battle it out to be crowned Championship Golfer of The Year, we urge you to delight in our fine dining Restaurant. Famed for our use of fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced produce, we really do let our dishes do the talking. Pair your delicious food with a delightful bottle of wine or a whiskey flight and enjoy the summer sunset with some al fresco drinks on our patio. Click here to view our selection of Day, Dinner, Sunday Carvery and Afternoon Tea menus. There is limited availability due to the high demand during The Open Week, so we recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment. 

The 19th hole at The Gas Bar

Watching all the exciting action of The Open is thirsty work. Luckily, at The Bushmills Inn, our historic Gas Bar offers the perfect location to whet your whistle after the final putt. With birdie-worthy cocktails, such as the classic Old Fashioned to our signature Bombay Bramble, we’ll have more than enough to quench your thirst. Furthermore, we offer delicious Bar Bites, to go along with our wide selection of drinks. Browse our Cocktail and Bar Bites menus before calling into The Gas Bar during The Open Championship.
