What must I see in Portrush?

To the outside world, Portrush is most famous for its relationship to the game of golf. Royal Portrush hosted the 2019 Open Championship, and it's one of the most beautiful courses in the world. So if any players want a golfing test in spectacular surroundings, go right ahead. But this isn't really just a destination for golfers. The town of Portrush is a picturesque seaside resort, with three Blue Flag-accredited beaches and stunning coastal walks along the craggy Whiterocks Cliffs. The rollercoasters and water slides at Barry's Amusements are a local institution, while adults can unwind at the Harbour Bar - easily one of the most atmospheric pubs on Northern Ireland's coast. And Portrush also has a thriving gastronomic scene, welcoming tapas chefs and seafood maestros to showcase their talents by the harbourside. The resort is also a great launchpad for wider exploration. Giant's Causeway is just 15 minutes up the coast by car, as is the Bushmills distillery. And the equally captivating resort of Portstewart is right next door. So there's plenty to see, eat, experience, and do.

Where should I stay in Portrush?

Before you book anywhere in Portrush, it's definitely worth becoming acquainted with some of the neighbourhoods in the town and the nearby area, as there are a few different possibilities to think about. If you're all about the beach, the seafront promenade has lots to offer. Hotels near West Strand will be ideal for families who need to be near the sea and amusement arcades, not to mention Barry's Amusements. If nightlife and gourmet food are priorities, and rollercoasters are lower down your priorities, hotel deals near the harbour will be perfect. It's where you'll find the best pubs and brasseries, as well as small galleries and craft shops. To the north, Portrush fades into Rathmore Head, home to some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the region. It's a great place for couples who want to walk arm in arm along cliff paths and find some tranquillity. Then there's the southern part of Portrush, where life revolves around golf. This is the closest neighbourhood to Royal Portrush, so if you intend to pound the fairways all week long, it's the area to check out. Finally, you might want to think about Portstewart. A golfing destination in its own right, it may be more chilled out in peak season than Portrush. And with a car, when you stay in a Portstewart hotel Portrush will be within easy reach, as it's just 1.5 miles up the road.
