My name is Stella Bolton, my husband Roy and I created The French Rooms Bushmills in 2013. We are located in the centre of Bushmills Village on the North Antrim Coast, a ‘stone’s throw’ from the world’s famous UNESCO heritage site, The Giants Causeway. Bushmills is steeped in history, culture and hospitality not to mention home to the world’s oldest licensed distillery.
The French Rooms is a French inspired experience and one of the lesser known connections is the French Huguenot ancestory which exists to this day in the village.
What we love most about the French way of life is how as a culture, the daily dining experience is special. Regionally the proudly champion local produce, preparing it for friends and family and enjoying it together at a relaxed pace, in ambient surrounding. We are a small team who continually strive to re-create this experience for our guests.
Our blog offers readers the opportunity to gain some insight into our story and contribute to where we are heading as we complete six luxury suites and launch a new experience. Covid19 lockdown is upon us and we take the time to enjoy some of our favourite recipes which we will share with you.
