Advantages: lots to do , nice beaches
Disadvantages: very busy during the summer - therefore not suit for those after a quite break
Portrush is one of Northern Irelands best loved seaside holiday resorts.
Located on the north coast, just beside the Giants Causeway. Portrsuh looks out into the Altantic Ocean /North Sea direction.
As with most seaside resort there a few things you know you will find in Portrush - namely amusements (a lots of them ) , sand beaches, nightclubs, lots of touirst shops and lots of families and children every where.
The biggest and best amusement place is BARRY'S - located in the centre of the town - you will have no trouble filling in time no a wet day - rides include THE GHOST TRAIN, BUMPING CARS ( CHILDRENS AND ADULTS) THE BIG DIPPER ( although its not really much to scream about), LOTS OF MACHINES , SLOT MACHINES, SMALL CHILDRENS RIDES AND SOME MORE SPINNING RIDES. This is a really good amusement centre and will provide something for all the family.
Portrush has some really nice beaches - with golden sand - lovely for a nice long walk on - also take a look at the WHITE ROCKS - they are something similar to the WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER really nice.
There are two of NOrthern Irelands best nightclubs based here in Portrush - namely TRACKS AND THE AWARD WINNING LUSH. If your young and love clubbing then certainly give them a shout. TRAKS , Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. LUSH - Wednesday and Saturday nights ( some really big name DJ's play here watch the bill boards and flyers)
As well as the nightclubs there are some super wee bars and pubs - I personally like the Harbour Inn - great atmosphere !!
Portrush is holiday resort that has something to offer people of every age - its one of my favourite holiday destinations
