The Inn on the Coast Hotel has been Pet Friendly since opening its doors in 2012 and the demand for Pet Friendly rooms has over-exceeded any of our expectations. The Inn has 10 elected Pet Friendly rooms (they are normally the first to go, so book early to avoid disappointment). All Pet Friendly Rooms are on the Ground Floor of the Hotel for easy access to go out to the toilet. We have a designated section in our Pub Bistro where you and your pooch can enjoy dinner together, a few drinks or some live entertainment in the summer evenings. There are also special dining arrangements if you wish to bring your dog to breakfast in the morning. In addition, we have alfresco seating arrangements in our Beer Garden, perfect for spending those warm summer days with your best Bud, after a long walk around the Coastline which is right on our doorstep; follow it for ten minutes and you will find Portrush’s West Strand beach. The team here at the Inn are all barking mad and are usually better at remembering Doggy names than their owner. And what makes the pooches experience exceptional is how much all our staff fuss over them and make them feel welcome. This in turn has produced so many regular guests, of varying shapes and sizes; we accept them all from Tea-cup Yorkies to Great Danes. All dogs which visit the Inn receive complimentary treats & water, and those who book in to stay with us receive a pooch pack filled with goodies. When staying overnight at the hotel with your dog(s) we ask that you bring their bedding, crates, bowls, toys etc. to make them feel extra comfortable in what can be a strange environment to them. We allow a maximum for 2 large/medium sized dogs or three small dogs per room. There is a one off charge of £20.00 for one dog, £25.00 for two dogs or £30.00 for three. Pet friendly rooms must be stated at the time of booking and these rooms can only be guaranteed when booked direct with the hotel. Why not check us out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & TripAdvisor to hear about and see some our Pet Friendly guests enjoying their stay. If you would like more information on our Pet friendly facilities or would like to book a pet friendly room please call our Reception team on 028 708 23509, we are here to help.

Irene Deacon, September 2020

Genuinely keen to make stay feel welcome and happy. Well geared up for accidents and incidents. I loved it on our stay.

Lauren Snoddy, September 2020

It is hard to find any sort of dog friendly accommodation but even harder to find dog friendly hotel. It is also wonderful that the hotel provide the facility where you are able to enjoy dinner and drinks with your pet. The hotel has a lovely homely, relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. The hotel is clean and rooms very spacious. I have visited with my family and dogs growing up and now I have my own family and dog I will be returning for many years to come.
