There’s nothing quite like a winter break on Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast

Enjoy great offers this November

If you’re not from Portrush, winter here is often misunderstood. Many people think the town is best avoided because everywhere shuts down at the end of the summer, and anyway, what would you do in a seaside town in winter weather?
Well, very few places actually do close for the winter. Smaller guesthouses, amusements, yes. But all the main hotels, including Magherabuoy, remain open all year. As do restaurants and pubs, and the major shops. And this is a great time to bag a bargain – because there are so many dining options in the area, competition can be pretty fierce which inevitably leads to the November price wars. Many restaurants are falling over themselves to cram their tables, to the point they are offering discounts of up to 50% on food. Sounds good – but always read the small print! There are also great deals on accommodation, and look no further on that front. We are offering fantastic prices for Bed and Breakfast between now and Christmas. And the other point we mentioned earlier, concerning the winter weather: dry days DO happen in the winter, and when they come along you just can’t beat a walk along the promenade, followed by a coffee – or a hot toddy – to warm you up again.

Getting Married?

Visit our Wedding Fair, 15th January 2017

From the excitement of your engagement, to the detail of planning everything just the way you want it, through the huge sense of anticipation and the ‘big day’ itself, weddings are the most magical of times.
However, like a good marriage, a good wedding takes effort. Choosing where to have your reception is probably the biggest decision you’ll have to make when planning your wedding. You will need to think about the style of the event you want to create, as well as practical issues such as budget, scale, location and overnight accommodation guests.

Once you have selected your venue, you will have to think about the wedding ceremony, the dress, flowers, cake, entertainment, suit hire, photographer, video, cars, room decoration…

If this sounds daunting – don’t worry, help is at hand. Magherabuoy House Hotel, on the outskirts of Portrush, has been a wedding venue for thirty years and hosts its’ annual Wedding Fair this Sunday, 15th January 2017 from 2-5pm.
Visitors to the Fair will be able to see the Magherabuoy’s wonderful wedding set-up, and talk to expert Hotel staff as well as a wide variety of other wedding service providers. This wealth of experience gained in hosting and helping to arrange thousands of weddings can’t be bought. Our bridal Fashion Show at 3pm will showcase some of the future trends in wedding wear.

At Magherabuoy, we can help you devise a dinner menu to suit your own taste. Of increasing popularity is the Hotel’s superb carvery should you want something a bit less formal with greater choice.
