Description

Sunny scenes at the seaside resort in this Northern Ireland Tourist Board footage, as families and holidaymakers are shown enjoying all the attractions of the popular location.

With its natural charms - not least its three sandy beaches - and numerous crowd-pleasing diversions, Portrush, in County Antrim, is a beloved tourist destination. In this footage we see visitors enjoying many of the entertainments it has to offer, be it the miniature train and Moon Rocket at Barry's Amusements, a frolic in the paddling pool, or donkey ride on one of the pristine beaches.

This film was digitised as part of the BFI's Unlocking Film Heritage project.
