55 Degree North (Portrush)
The white building on the right surrounded by the grass – great food with a lovely view over East Strand with Royal Portrush Golf Club where The Open is above the dunes on the right.

Royal Court (overlooks The Open)
Perched on the hill over White Rocks beach this is a spectacular location that overlooks Royal Portrush Golf Club where The Open is, so you can have a look whilst you have a beer/wine. Thomas McVea at has kindly provided us with a free virtual tour of the view of the Portrush Open from the Royal Court Hotel below. Thanks Thomas! Please head to his site for more great 360 tours of NI and Ireland.


Bayview (Portballintrae)
Portballintrae is a gorgeous little harbour with a great beach. The Bayview has a lovely menu and is an idyllic setting for a meal.

Koko (Portrush)
The favourite cafe of the founders of this site, Koko is a lovely discovery. It’s a bit hidden and doesn’t look much from the street … and then you walk through to the view. Lovely people who run it.

Babushka (Portrush harbour)
Probably the quaintest setting on the Causeway Coast. Small place with a big heart! Unique, a lovely experience.

Tides (Great views)
An incredible view and outstanding food. Extremely popular so book early. Located on the Par 3 Ballyreagh Golf Course so you can watch golfers and the view whilst you eat.

Ramore (Portrush Harbour)
One of the most popular restaurants on the Causeway Coast, 4 restaurants in one – Harbour Bar, Harbour Bistro, Neptune & Prawn, The Mermaid and a Wine Bar. Great setting in the middle of this quaint harbour.

Sea Shed Coffee & Surf
Very cool, ‘surfer dude’ vibe as run by the surf guys down there. Brilliant hang out place.
