Portstewart is a family seaside resort situated on the North Coast. The town has a picturesque harbour and promenade and to the west is the sweeping two-mile stretch of Portstewart Strand. Portstewart’s Victorian era promenade boasts an upper and lower walk, with spectacular views across the North Coast to the Inishowen Peninsula of Donegal. Stroll along Portstewart’s National Trust protected Strand via the winding cliff path or watch the world go by from one of the famed ice-cream parlours, cafes, coffee shops, pubs or restaurants. Browse in the colourful art galleries, craft and gift shops, or enjoy an afternoon’s golf, tennis or bowls .Enjoy the cliff path walk which stretches along the coast from the Promenade to Portstewart Strand. From here it is a popular walk to the Barmouth, where the Bann flows out into the Atlantic Ocean. The cliff path has panoramic views across the Strand and Downhill with Donegal in the background. The Barmouth is a sanctuary for waders, wildfowl and nesting birds. Beyond the Barmouth lies Castlerock, Mussenden Temple, Benone Strand and the Magilligan Strand.
There is a range of outdoor activities available from our award winning beaches, fantastic cycle and walking routes, famous Golf courses, coastal trails and the River Bann waterway. A claim is often made that Portstewart strand course has the best opening hole in Irish Golf – indeed some say in the world, and has been described as “an absolute stunner” by experts. Portstewart golf club is ranked 95th in the ‘Top 100 golf courses of the British Isles’. Portstewart Golf Club does however live in the shadow of its better-known neighbour, Royal Portrush Golf Club. It has been stated that “if it weren’t for the fact that the highly acclaimed, Royal Portrush Golf Club is only a couple of miles down the road from Portstewart, the latter would be much better known as one of the best courses in all Ireland and would be vying with its neighbour for the accolades that are normally reserved exclusively for Portrush and Royal County Down”.
