It is very noisy and a bit expensive but can be fun for the children (of all ages). Staff can look a bit fed up at times. We always call in when we in Portrush.

Barry's is an institution, and one that you won't regret visiting! The whole family can enjoy the variety of rides and games on offer. The prices are reasonable and there are some rides which continue to get the adrenaline seriously pumping!

Run down and needs to be either shut down for good, or revamped to allow children to take part in new shows.
