Very disappointed. Portrush is a typical seaside town, it relies on good weather and although I would not call the second weekend in September out of season everything appeared to be closed or closing. Very different from other seaside towns in the north of Ireland.

I went to portrush as a family day out, and a afternoon in Barrys Amusement centre, is always on the cards, its just pure family fun, it meets all ages and types of people. Great access for buggys and wheelchairs. Prices meet all budgets.

Barry's is a tradition. I went here as a child and my children now love to go. It smells of candy floss the minute you walk through the door and is noisy with loud music and slot machines but there is enough of a selection of rides to suit most family groups. The cost of the rides has increased over... More

We went to watch the Barry's Big Thank You firework display on airshow Saturday - it was the best show i've seen in NI for years - fair play to Barry's for supporting it. (Did you see them Daph?)

No visit to Portrush is complete without a visit to Barry's!! The kids love the cyclone and the outdoor rides!! I just enjoy the 2p machines!! Tokens are used for the rides just try and work out how many you will need.

When I found out that this was the biggest amusements in Ireland I was excited to visit and enjoy some of the rides, however the rides were good but you just need to take your whole bank account with you. You had to keep buying tokens and they didn't offer a wrist band (you pay £14 and can go on... More

How can anyone not like Barry's or give it a miss when visiting Portrush. The sheer excitement, the buzz, the noise, the thrills, the looks of pleasure on the faces of young and old alike. What an experience. If you haven't been to Barrys you haven't lived!

Had a decent enough day at the weekend with the kids. It is a tacky place but the kids absolutely loved it. Spent a fortune in 2ps and 10ps but we spent a good few hours there. The sun was shining so a quick trip out the back to the big dipper and the caterpillar for the we one left... More
