Bushmills

Belfast

Bushmills is a village in Northern Ireland. The origin of its name comes from the River Bush and a large watermill built there in the 17th century. The place is best known by the Old Bushmills Distillery with a hand crafting small batches for production of smooth tasting Irish whiskey. As the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world, it has been in function for more than 400 years.

3.2 kilometers (2 miles) north of the Bushmills is the Giant's Causeway, a geological wonder that at first glance looks like something that a man could build. It was included on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in Europe in 1986.
