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.

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.

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.
