Things To See

Whether you’re a history lover, a keen golfer or a whiskey fan, there are plenty of things to do in Portrush. The town’s location on the coast means it’s historically been a strategic location for defence, and a whole range of castles have been built here over the years. Of these, the remains of Dunluce Castle, originally built in the late Middle Ages, are still here and well worth the trip.

The more contemporary geography fan will be delighted to hear that the nearby Dark Hedges are a spectacular sight and the sight of filming for a number of scenes from the world-famous HBO TV show Game of Thrones. The hills and cliffs of Antrim were integral to the making of the show, and are well worth a trip during your stay with us here at the Portrush Atlantic Hotel.
