“Loud and Proud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We visited Barrys when minding our 1 year old grandson while Mum & Dad attended a wedding. It was his first visit to a funfair and was dazzled by the noises and flashing lights. :-). There seems to be attractions for very young children all the way up to adults, although the main market appears to be older children and teenagers.
Our Grandson really enjoyed the rides for tots, and we have some great photos of his smiling face.
The park appears to be closed on weekdays when we visited.

“if you dont compare it to Alton Towers its great!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Barrys....what can be said?! nearly all northern irish folk will have childhood memories from here, so its only fair i give my children the same! dont expect disney or alton towers but in terms of a good old fashioned fun fair then barrys is good! the kids loved it, mini rollercoasters, dodgems, ghost train etc. good innocent family fun. we went on may bank holiday, so it was very busy but plenty of staff and good atmosphere!

“Barrys”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Think its time Barrys changed some of their rides getting boring now if you go down a few times a year you want to see something new otherwise you lose interest

“So so”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I went to Barry's and was always scared to go on the freak out but finally done it..now that I have been on all the rides in Barry's I think it's time they got new rides..an perhaps lower their prices as its a very expensive day out for the kids..
