Your guide to Portrush
All About Portrush
On Northern Ireland’s stunning Atlantic coastline, Portrush is a pretty seaside town situated on a mile-long peninsula, surrounded by gorgeous beaches and dramatic clifftops. This charming resort enjoys panoramic views of the sea, the incredible Causeway Coastal Route to the south, and the soft hills of Donegal to the north. Seaside towns in this area are famous for their amusement houses, ones with arcades and roller coasters that have been putting smiles on people’s faces for nearly a century. Portrush is no different. After taking a thrill ride, check out the Causeway Coast Way Walk from Portrush Harbour, extending out to Saint Patrick’s Well in Portstewart for even more views of beautiful beaches, the Skerries Islands, Ballyreagh Castle, and the windswept Inishowen peninsula.
How do I get around Portrush?

When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Portrush?
The summer months of June, July and August see Portrush in its element, with sunny skies and everyone enjoying the beaches and classic British seaside amusements. At the start of September the Air Waves festival provides both ground and aerial entertainment.

What are the top things to do in Portrush?
Portrush has three glorious beaches, but the most stunning is Whiterocks. A sweep of white sand backed by picturesque cliffs, Whiterocks is a beautiful place for fresh air, beach fun, and walks. With soft sand between your toes, enjoy the views of the jagged limestone rocks that stretch from Curran Strand to Dunluce.
A ruined castle in a spectacular clifftop location, Dunluce is said to have inspired the fantasy capital city of a popular English childrens’ series. It is an essential stop on the Causeway Coastal Route and only a 10-minute drive from Portrush. Take a self-guided tour and discover the fascinating history of this 15th-century fortification and enjoy the views from its walls out to sea, as well as over the remains of long-abandoned Dunluce town.
Boat trips from Portrush Harbour
There are some great options for boat trips from Portrush Harbour. Take a short tour up the coast to see Dunluce Castle from the sea, or further down the coast to the spectacular Giants’ Causeway. Explore the Skerries Islands, a rocky archipelago just off the coast from Portrush and an important protected habitat for birds such as the black guillemot and eider duck. You can also visit Rockabill Lighthouse and the ruined church founded by Saint Patrick, Ireland’s national saint. You could even venture as far as Rathlin Island, the northernmost point of Northern Ireland with its jagged cliffs and vast seabird colonies.
