This place has been here forever and is a "must visit" if you take your kids to Portrush for the day! I think everyone must have a random "Barry's Token" in a drawer somewhere in their house that they intend (or intended) to go back and use at some point!! As a previous reviewer said, for about £20 your kids... More

This is an excellent fairground for families; many of the rides are undercover making it a good day out whatever the weather. We visited twice (with a 12 year old and a 9 year old) on our trip to Northern Ireland and had fun both days. The attractions all looked well looked after, the place was clean and although we...

The place to visit with kids while in Portrush. For about 20 pounds they can ride enough to get their fill. It has been there forever and is always fun.

I have been going to Barry's every year since I was a boy. We haven't missed a year and I have continued the tradition with my own family. This is a great day out whether rain or shine, although wet days can be extremely busy as most amusements are indoors and very popular. A good clean family day out. Enjoy!

Ahhh, Barrys! Still so much fun - even 30 years later :) Great afternoon for families... but set yourself a budget - just in case you get carried away on the 2p machines :D

We all had a great time at Barrys even the big kids in the bumper cars. The little kids all had a very good time and loved the speedy mouse. one visit wasnt enough so they must have had 3 or 4 visits during our stay.

We had a great fun day with little kids and not so little kids. Brings back child hood memories. The ghost train has not changed at all to think it used to scare the life out of me. We spent a lovely afternoon in it. Not bad value for money co,pared to some amusements.

Like all other amusement centres you can easily spend a fortune here. My four year old loves it especially the traditional horse carousel. To be honest I love it too, brings back childhood memories of when my parents brought me to Barry's. Lots of rides were you can buy a souvenir photo. Lots of snacks available. Close to beach and...
