Portrush is a small seaside resort town on the Causeway Coastal Route in Northern Ireland. The name Portrush from Irish: Port Rois, meaning “promontory port”, however, has also had several variations including Portross and Port Ruis throughout the years.
The town is on the Antrim side of the border between County Antrim and County (London)Derry. The central part of Portrush town centre is built on a mile long peninsula, called Ramore Head, pointing out northwards into the Atlantic Ocean. This is where most of the hotels, restaurants and bars are situated.
