We were dropped off here by our driver for what he described as the best pint around (Guinness) and it certainly was. We had more than one! Great bar worth a visit.

When the sun is shining and the weather's balmy, those 'in-the-know' frequent the Harbour Bar in Portmagic❤️ Willie is fiercely proud and protective of his bar - and rightly so! The warmest welcome awaits one and all. Children, dogs, celebrities (I once spotted James Nesbitt!), locals and 'not-so-locals' are all assured of great drinks and great craic in equal measure!...

I am not sure but I wonder if there are two Harbour Bars. The one I walked into was small, dark and dank. Maybe later in the evening it changes. Looked like there may have been a restaurant upstairs but downstairs there were very few places to stand or sit.

Nothing beats a Sunday dinner in Neptune and Prawn followed by a wee visit to The Front Bar for a few drinkies to finish off the night and wash away those Sunday night blues! If you are lucky, Willie and Richard will be on duty where they create a very welcoming and warm atmosphere and the craic is ninety! Top... More

Very busy bar and restaurant. Real family spot for good food - plain but inexpensive. Wide menu to suit all and child friendly

I didn't eat in the Bistro, but it's a great bar. Tiny bar downstairs is good for a laugh, big bar upstairs with good live music and great selection of drinks. Staff are very friendly. I would definitely recommend.

Awful place. Worse than ever but still includes "bingo calling" customers for the overrated Wine Bar. Bar service is poor, expensive and includes awful singers of amplified "pap" who try and discourage any conversation amongst customers with their tinny racket. Won't be back obviously, even though I live in the town!!

It is not surprising that, at the time of writing, this restaurant has been voted Number 1 in Portrush. It is my favourite place to eat on the North Coast by a long way! Great atmosphere, unbelievable value and always great quality food. Great staff who work hard keeping waiting times to a minimum, but, worth the wait!

A small bar on the harbor that is local, friendly and old fashion. We sat there for a little time and met the most friendly and real locals of Northern Ireland.
