Country music, comedy and good craic comes to the Causeway Coast this summer!

Magherabuoy House Hotel is pleased to be hosting Lowry Promotions’ first Portrush Country Cabaret on Thursday 19th July. The show will feature some of the best and brightest talent on the country music scene, a little bit of comedy from one of the country’s most sought after comedians and plenty of room to dance the night away.

Hugo Duncan

Everyone loves ‘your uncle Hugo’! So who better to host your show for the evening than BBC Radio Ulster’s own Hugo Duncan. He will be keeping the show moving with some of your best-loved songs, and might even squeeze in a joke or two as well.

Shauna McStavrock

Shauna hails from Co. Tyrone and has recently had success on our screens with her country music show “Shauna’s Country”. She will have everyone jiving when she gets on the stage so don’t forget your dancing shoes.

Gene Fitzpatrick

Gene Fitzpatrick is a first class act mixing one-liners with a wealth of hilarious gags and yarns. An act that is always, clean, funny and inoffensive. He has a natural charm and warmth, along with an enviable ability to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere in any room.

Ritchie Remo

Singer/songwriter and international sensation Ritchie Remo has been putting his heart & soul into entertainment & music as a performer onstage for over 22 years.  You really can tell when he comes on stage with enthusiasm and crowd interaction like no other. Don’t miss Ritchie in action in Portrush!

Johnny Brady

Johnny has one of the most distinctive voices in modern country music.  Known for his powerful vocals, energetic performances and charismatic personality, Johnny has a unique sound and is continually pushing the boundaries in a new generation of Irish country music artists. Johnny has been touring extensively throughout Ireland & the UK over the past five years and has built a reputation for having one of the finest dance bands on the Irish country music scene.  Johnny is also famous for ‘turning it up a notch’ and believe us, he really does!

Portrush really has it all – good food, quality accommodation, lots to see and do…

One of the most popular things to do is something we hardly even think about – walking. There really is nothing more invigorating than a walking tour around the peninsula town of Portrush. We recommend you start at West Bay, parking up in the spacious free car park.

Walking tour Portrush

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make your way along the Promenade north in the direction of the Harbour.

Here you can stop for a coffee or a meal in one of the many eateries in the area. Next, move on towards Ramore Head where you can enjoy magnificent views out across the Atlantic ocean. Mind though, it can be blowy up here, and take care on the cliff paths.

When you come off Ramore Head, walk towards Landsdowne and past the old Lifeboat Shelter and onto the Area of Special Scientific Interest. The rocks between the Shelter and the Countryside Centre are protected because of their unique geology. Check out the rock pools for marine life.

After the Countryside Centre you will go down a small hill to the Salmon Fishery.

Take the promenade past the Salmon Fishery and on your left you will see the old ‘Ladies Bathing Place’, a small beach tucked in beside the Arcadia.

Continue south past the Arcadia and you will arrive at what used to be called Curran Strand, now known as East Strand. You can extend your walk by a couple of miles by continuing east along the beach to the Whiterocks. Alternatively, exit East Strand car park onto Causeway Street. Follow south to the mini roundabout and turn right onto Croc-na-mac Road. Follow this road past the Primary School, and when you pass the second roundabout turn right into West Bay car park. You are back where you started.

Weather-wise it’s been a poor Easter break right across Northern Ireland. But with many people off work, and the schools on holiday until next week, there’s still time to find something to see or do. A short break at Magherabuoy on the Cuaseway Coast, close to Coleraine, puts you at the centre of an area where there is so much to see and do.
