Went in with our young children during a visit to Portrush. Was a step back in time to my childhood! I don't think Barry's has changed much at all!! Our daughter enjoyed the children's rides.

I went to Barrys today and immediately thought I was back in 1982, the same noise, the same smells and pretty much the same everything, Ghost Train off to the right, Dodgems then the Waltzer and Mini Dodgems behind that. It was near enough identical to when I was a kid, I didn't see any arcade games as such, perhaps... More

It is THE destination for all children visiting Portrush. Its not the biggest Fun Fair we've been to, but it can certainly keep the kids entertained for at least two hours. They have attractions for both really young children and some older ones too. The staff is very helpful and kind.

Barry's is a well-deserved national treasure and no trip to Portrush would be complete without a go on the Big Dipper. Dropped in yesterday and was so impressed by how reasonably priced the rides, refreshments and merchandise were. Well done to the management for focussing on real family value. A great couple of hours craic had as always, thank you!

Took our 3 children here at the weekend, they had so much fun and our eldest enjoyed the bigger rides whilst our younger ones enjoyed the lil dodgems and water ride. We payed £20 for the 50 tokens which our children went through quite quickly 😊.. Nice day out.

Good selection of rides and attractions for a thrill seeker.. Limited for younger children but entertaining enough to spend a few hours if the weather does not lend itself to outdoor locations.

Barrys Amusements is a simple 'fun environment', for those who are looking for serious roller coasters and thrill seeking, this will not make the grade; it is however very good for young (and teenage) children
