It is also the golf capital of Ireland with the Royal Portrush Golf Club being the home club of Darren Clark & Graham McDowell.

It is a peaceful fishing village on the sea, with sandy beaches, shops, bars, restaurants, golf, the Giant's Causeway and the Bushmills Distillery all within walking distance.

"Really nice upmarket "cottage""
We had a very short visit but were very impress with the quality o f the finish and fittings (Eden Pottery crockery for example). Very centrally situated in quiet cul-de-sac off main Port Ballintrae road. Ideal for Causeway Coast. It would have been convenient to have had a Micro-wave but that would be the only ctiticism. Would most certainly stay there again and would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely property to anyone else.
