It may not have changed much in the 20+ Years I've visited but if you're at the north coast you MUST visit Barrys! Friendly staff and a bit of nostalgia! Make sure and bring plenty of 2p's!!

Barry's is the best amusement park in Northern Ireland with an amusement ride to suite every member of the family. It is the place to be for a great family or friends day out in Portrush!

I visited Barry's Amusements with some friends in August 2015. It was nice enough with plenty to do for all the family. Barry's Big Dipper is the signature ride, it's good fun, although it is quite rough! The park operates a pay-per-ride system although you can purchase a wristband. Well worth a visit.

Everyone knows Barry's and to review it would be like describing the colour of a blue sky or the temperature of ice cubes. However, if I could offer any advice it is to go at the end of season if you can. There are no queues and you get longer on the rides!!

Tired looking with the same decor from when I was 5. (I'm 39 now). I kid you not, Barry's will excite the kids no end.... but honestly, a revamp is required. With little competition, I guess investing in paint and decor isn't a must... Very handy location with street parking close at hand...

A day at the amusements with the family, they have every kind of ride, from the ones for the young and nervous to the older and more adventurous and if you get peckish there is a cafe and snack bar. Highly recommended

We live about five miles from Portrush. Would take my Grandson there once or twice per year as a treat, quite expensive if you were to take a family, great variety of rides, to many slot machines. My son and daughter-in-law got married on 1 August 2015 and went there for some photographs prior to going to the reception, manager... More

Visited here with the in-laws. Apparently it's a bit of an institution and I can see why. It brought back childhood memories of visits to the shows during Gala weeks at home. My nephews went on a number of rides and really enjoyed themselves. According to my wife and her brother it's not changed very much from when they were... More
