There are buses several times a day, going to Portrush, Coleraine or Ballycastle, where one can catch a train or a bus to their next destination - such as Derry or Belfast.

There is also a twice-daily Coastliner bus which passes by the hostel going to Larne/Belfast.
During the Summer Season there is a bus called the 'Causeway Rambler' which runs from the Rope Bridge - Ballintoy - Whitepark Bay -Dunseverick Castle - Giant's Causeway and the Bushmills Distillery. This bus runs throughout the day back and forth, seven days a week. One can obtain a day-pass, which allows the traveller to stretch the legs and use the hop on/hop off option.

Also, when a guest is trying to reach our hostel on arrival, we provide a free pick-up service from Bushmills, Ballycastle or the Giant's Causeway. All you have to do is ring us to arrange the pick up when you receive our contact details after the booking is made.
