Stayed with 9 friends on a golf trip and were very pleased with hotel. Very comfortable with friendly staff and good breakfast. A little out of town but only a short cab ride from the Harbour where the Portrush night life is to be found. Would recommend this as a good base for anyone wanting to visit Portrush.

Dear Doug, Glad to hear you were pleased with your stay at Magherabuoy House Hotel. Whilst we are located on the outskirts of Portrush we are only a short distance from town and benefit from having extensive free on-site parking. I hope you enjoyed the golf. Thank you for the review. Regards, Trevor More
