Situated opposite the Portrush Train station and a stone throw away from the west strand beach, it is the perfect gathering place for those wanting to enjoy Portrushs famous events such as the North West 200, The Airshow , Raft Race, Atlantic Sessions or Pipe Band Championships. Having been recently renovated and expanded, it is now one of the busiest bars in the triangle area. Winning accolades such as, Pub of Ulster's 2012 'Best new/improved' bars in Antrim and being a finalist in their 'Best neighbourhood bar' division.

The Quays Bar decor is a blend of a traditional Irish pub theme with a modern twist, offering customers a warm, clean and welcoming atmosphere in which to relax and shelter from the North Coast weather or kick their heels up and start the weekend party.

As it was not yet the "season" many restaurants in town weren't open so we decided on pub food. I expected dry boring food and got a really wonderful surprise instead. Not expecting much I ordered a burger w/Onion rings. The rings were in the burger and the whole thing was fabulous. Someone else had the lasagna and she was totally happy with her meal as was the third diner who ordered the fish. We ate almost everything!!!
The service was great and I would definitely go back.

Called into the Quays whilst staying in Portrush for a week. The food was great especially the curry sauce made by the new chef's special secret recipe. I don't know what patotoes he uses or what he uses to cook the chips in but I had to have them every time I went in, so don't go if your on a diet lol

We had a steak which was cooked to perfection and all the trimmings for £8.95 well worth it.

Good atmosphere!

Visited this little gem of a place as i had been told a new chef with a spruced up menu was on offer so I decided to give it a go as the last visit was ok.I opted for the sirloin special which was tasty and cooked to my liking and seasoned well.service was just as good and I have to say very good value for money considering what you get on your plate.well recommended! Will be back.
