No trip to Portrush is complete without a visit to Barry's. It hasn't changed much so no matter how long it's been since your last visit the nostalgia is sure to one rushing back in a matter of minutes when you step foot into it.

I visited today with my 6 year old son. We had a fantastic time and he noticed the tidy up and new paintwork that had gone on over the winter. The staff could not have been more pleasant. Thank you for a great day
