Stretching into a peninsula just to the east of Portstewart is the town of Portrush, famous for its harbour, restaurants, amusement park Barry's, surfing and the Royal Portrush Golf Course, which will host the British open in July 2019.
The West is bordered by a promenade, with green playing fields behind it, sweeping into the town until you reach Barry's - famous for anyone living in Northern Ireland for the past 60 years.
It has a roller coaster, dodgems, ghost train, and all the trappings of a good day out with the children - big or small. The town centre has plenty of shops, with the main restaurant hub being the Ramore complex right on the harbour itself.
The west strand extends along the back of the Royal Portrush Golf Course all the way down to what are known locally as the “White Rocks” - large outcrops of vertical white columns the sea has yet to claim. The town also has a train station - currently being renovated - receiving trains directly from Coleraine and also some direct from Belfast.
Really helpful and nice people! Wouldn't go anywhere else to rent a student house!
