Portrush (Irish Port Rois) is a small town with about 6000 inhabitants in the county of Antrim, in the north- east of Ireland. Together with Portstewart and Coleraine, it forms the so-called Triangle, and is the tourist magnet of the three villages. Portrush offers its visitors two large beaches, which are used both in summer for bathing as well as for concerts. In addition, tourists will find a small amusement park and allegedly the largest discotheque in Ireland, Kelly's. The Royal Portrush Golf Club is one of the most elite golf clubs of Britain and was the venue for the 1951 British Open. Portrush is conveniently located for excursions to some of the biggest tourist attractions in Northern Ireland, including the Giant's Causeway, Bushmills whiskey brewery and Dunluce Castle. Outside the tourist season, Portrush is primarily a residential town for students from the nearby university in Coleraine.
