Portrush, East Strand, County Antrim
In Northern Ireland, a spell of good weather often brings people flocking to the north coast. Portrush and nearby Portstewart are favourites since both have excellent beaches, as well as good shops and eating places, etc. People tend to have the attitude, ‘good weather may not last, so let’s make the most of it.’ There’s plenty of choice and places of interest on this northern stretch of coastline including Ballycastle, Kinbane Castle, Carrick-a-Rede with its famous rope bridge, Ballintoy, Dunseverick, The Giant’s Causeway, Portballintrae, White Park Bay, and then the popular towns of Portrush and Portstewart.
With the Covid travel restrictions, the word ‘staycation’ has become a buzzword as we’ve had to face the uncertainty of being able to travel abroad without quite a bit of hassle. Instead, many have made the most of holiday destinations closer to home – places like the north coast. Fortunately, in Northern Ireland we have plenty of suitable places to enjoy a break. It’s even better when we get those temperatures that we’ve been enjoying this year.
