Show your LOVE this Valentine’s weekend, with a glass of prosecco, a romantic 3-course meal and an overnight break

L – LAVISH YOUR LOVE… Treat your loved one to the best gift of all, precious ‘together’ time. Wine and dine your Valentine and enjoy our candlelit dinner for two at Magherabuoy House on the 14th February.

O – ONLY WANT TO BE WITH YOU…  Whisk your beloved off their feet with a proposal they can’t refuse. Where better to ask those four words, than at dusk with Dunluce Castle, Portstewart Strand or Mussenden Temple in the background?

V – VERY, VERY, EXTRAORDINAY (SIGHTS)… The Causeway Coast is a place to make special memories together – whether its a walk along one of the many beaches, a stroll along a promenade or a coastal drive. And relax with a glass of something by the fireside when you get back to the Hotel.

E – EVERYTHING I DO, I DO IT FOR YOU… So treat your loved one by giving them the gift of time together. Good food, comfortable surroundings and some of the most stunning scenery in the country.

We have limited availability for both overnight stays and our candlelit dinner, so don’t delay – book now by calling us on 028 7082 3507.

Wedding planning can, for some couples, seem like a daunting process. It doesn’t have to be – help is at hand!

At Magherabuoy, our management team has decades of experience in the field of wedding and event planning. Your wedding becomes the Hotel’s wedding when you book with us, so straight away we will offer you as much, or indeed as little, guidance and support as you need.

Our Hotel, built around a nineteenth century ‘Gentleman’s Residence’, boasts a range of event rooms that can cater for wedding ceremonies and receptions for 10 to 270 guests. The Sir Dawson Bates suite is licensed for wedding ceremonies and is sytlishly decorated to augment the splendor of Magherabuoy House’s period architecture. If your wedding is larger, consider the Lanyon Room, thoughtfully laid out to cater for wedding ceremonies, receptions and entertainment. Finally our largest event space, the Causeway Suite, will accommodate up to 270 guests for dinner and as many for the night-time entertainment. Plenty of choice, all under one roof. And so many beautiful locations around the Causeway Coast for those magical wedding photographs.

Food is no problem to us either – our kitchen team can cater for your personal preferences if you can’t quite find what you’re looking for on our extensive menus. We have recently cooked Italian-style food for one happy couple who met on holiday there. Many people opt for the traditional soup, turkey and ham, and choice of dessert – and we do that to a very high standard. Or try something totally different – we will pull out all the stops to make your wedding the best day of your life.

So if you’d like to talk to one of our team to discuss your wedding plans, sample our great food or get a look around the venue, get in touch. We’d love to make your wedding, our wedding. Call us on 02870823507, or email events@magherabuoy.co.uk. You can also reach us on our social media channels.

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.

With the half-term Hallowe’en break quickly approaching, we thought we’d let you know what we have lined up to keep you – and the little ones – amused…

As is the same every year, 2019 is fit to burst with events and fun along the Causeway Coast. To inspire and help you organise and plan, we thought we’d collect the best our beautiful north coast has to offer.

See you there!

Enjoy the Halloween Happenings on the Causeway Coast

We are getting into the Halloween ‘spirit’ a the Hotel, where we have some interesting decorations in place to set the scene for a ghoulishly great half-term break!

On Saturday 26th October the Community Rescue Service is hosting a kids Strictly Come Dancing evening in our ballroom. The little ones have been practising hard ahead of the big night in aid of a great cause.

On Sunday 27th October we are hosting a Spooky Sunday Lunch, with diners (and their little guests) welcome to enjoy the laughs and entertainment provided by Parky the Magician. There’s face painting and fancy dress too!

Away from the Hotel and there are four days of spook-tacular Council events and entertainment to look forward to, kicking off in Ballymoney on Monday 28th October before further celebrations in Limavady (October 29th), Coleraine (October 30th) and Ballycastle (October 31st).

Closest to us is Coleraine, and a range of illuminated inflatable decorations bedecking the town centre buildings have been turning heads…

The fireworks display and entertainment on Wednesday 30th at the Rugby Avenue playing fields is always a great evening out, and best of all entry is FREE! There are also amusements and slime workshops, and some events in the town centre during the daytime.

Venture out to Downhill and at Bishops Gate you can embark on a journey of adventure and discovery as you take to the spooky woodland on a Halloween scavenger hunt… 28th October to 2nd November, 10am – 3pm each day.

And if you just want to get away from it all, enjoy a relaxing break in comfortable surroundings with great food and friendly staff, you know who to call…

Autumn is a great time to get out and about around the North Coast’s splendid beaches, hills and forests. The outdoors is truly magnificent as summer green turns to autumnal hues of gold, rust and brown. There is something soothing, calming, about a walk along a deserted promenade. Now is a great time to enjoy a quiet break with us, away “from the madding crowd”.

At Magherabuoy, we love our food and drink. So here’s an early ‘heads up’ – dates have now been confirmed for this year’s beer and food festival. It’s back again to Portrush Town Hall on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th October.

The Portrush Beer & Food Festival is brought to the North Coast by the team behind Lacada Brewery Co-Operative.

The story here is simple. Lacada is a community owned Co-Operative brewery based on the world famous Causeway Coast, Northern Ireland. The Beer and Food Festival enables the Lacada Co-operative to put on show its’ range of artisan beers alongside other local brews, as well as product from the Republic of Ireland and Great Britain. For example, Yellow Belly Beer from Wexford were amongst those who attended the 2017 event. Closer to home, Glens of Antrim Craft Ales and Beers were also in attendance. No doubt details will emerge soon of what we can expect from this year’s event.

The festival attracts a great crowd and is growing in poularity every year. It really is a gentle way to break into the autumn and the long dark evenings. Book your stay with us now.

Lacada Half Hung


The Festival also supports charitable causes. The 2018 charity partner is the Alzheimer’s Society. All money raised at the festival will go towards helping local projects.
