After our surfing lesson, we continued to have fun in Portrush. The children enjoyed the variety of rides, which cater for different age groups. Only our youngest was upset as she wasn't allowed on some rides with her older cousins! There were also queues but these weren't excessive. We liked the fact that some of the park was under cover...

I along with my youngest Daughter and two Granddaughter's decided on a day out in Portrush before school holiday ends and it's back to school for my Granddaughter's. We spent a few hours in Barry's and Kiddieland amusements albeit that the noise inside Barry's seemed loud, and with quite a lot of young children running around it did seem to... More

No first-time visit to Portrush is complete without a visit to this local institution. Although the place clearly has some very good fun rides for all ages, the indoor area is terribly noisy and leaves your ears ringing for a while. The 2-penny machines are fun but highly addictive...it is easy to spend hours non-stop at those (especially if you... More

Decided to join my extended family for a summer's day out. had no expectations ... and was pleasantly surprised by the fun etc. Staff were pleasant, toilets clean and decent value for money... my only gripe was the mini roller coaster which I found dangerous as there wasn't enough head support and I was genuinely sore for days afterwards

Barry's is an Irish tradition. Relived childhood memories of a quarter of a century ago - Big Dipper now has a loop the loop, Ghost train still scary, dodgems are not dodgems but bumper cars - great craic!

Hadn't been to Barry's in years, we took our 2 grand-daughters with us for some fun, they are aged 8 & 3. Had a go on a lot of the rides and they seemed to enjoy it but not a lot of changes since we were last there. Eldest grand-daughter went on the Waltzer thing outside in the kids zone,... More

We love this traditional amusement park. There's a range of slot machines, 2p machines and games to win tickets on. Collect up your tickets and exchange them for prizes. For a small outlay you can have lots of fun and acquire cuddly toys. Vibrant busy atmosphere inside and a range of rides from a turtle splash mini log flume to... More
