Portrush was our base for two days of exploring the northern Antrim Coast. It's a classic little resort town - with a beach, a small amusement park, and a golf course. We had heard that it was a tired little beach town - not sure we could judge or we cared too much. I liked its spectacular geography, the core of the town is located on a rocky peninsula that sticks out into the sea with beaches on both sides.  I also liked the fact that Portrush was important in the early history of geology.

We didn't spend much time in Portrush. I had a great walk early one morning out through town to Ramore Head and we walked around town in the evening after our long day of Carrick-a-Rede, Giant's Causeway, and Derry. We checked out the amusement arcade, but we didn't play any games or go on any rides. We did have ice cream. Or maybe I had ice cream. M may have shown more restraint.
