Visited July 21, 2013 Stopped here for drinks after dinner in Portrush. To be honest we stopped because my girlfriends favorite pro golfer lists this bar as his world wide favorite. Had a Guinness and a cider and had to sit outside because it was very very busy inside. A great view (like all of Portrush) and we made a... More

The experience of having a few pints of Guinness in this bar is one I will take with me everywhere I go. I recall often the memories of this bar, the very amusing owner, his stories, great Guinness and whiskey. If I get a chance to visit Ireland again, I know that Portrush and the Harbour Bar will be on... More

Great restaurant. Great set up. A different system of dining. No reservations, wait in a holding area till number called. Order and pay before you eat. Food was divine, reasonably priced. Side dishes were scrumptious. Incredibly busy and well organised. Hats off to the owners. Ye have it sussed!!

Hubby and I were recommended to go here by a niece, she did explain they don't take bookings and you will have to wait. Hubby said Guinness was very good, we didn't have to wait too long for a table, once I got over having to order and pay before you get anything I was ok. The food was good... More

A cute little bar, full of cheerful locals drinking and singing. We had a ball! Everyone is friendly, and welcoming.

arrived and told we would have to wait about an hour but we were seated within 30 mins, you order and pay for your food at the bar and then the food is brought to your table, we ordered the fondue to start - plenty of bread and cheese for 4. Ordered the steak which was not cooked quite enough... More

Large dog sitting on a seat & licking the table. Barman petting and kissing him and then filling drinks without washing his hands. Overcharged £10 on our first and only round which was refunded without quibble when queried. Were we taken advantage of because we werent Northern. No wonder tourism is down in the North.
