Attraction details
Reviewed 27 August 2013

The Best place to go before you go and explore the sea shore if you've never been before. The Staff are extremely knowledgable and very friendly and allow you to handle some of their sea creatures e.g sea cucumber,clams and starfish all on different days I may add. A small area for young children to colour in free pictures of sealife and a separate room where there is a large screen and a seated area to watch whatever happens to be screening that day e.g David Attenborough . Entry is free ,what more could you want .

not a lot to see but what was there was interesting. The facts about the rubbish that is thrown on the beach and sea was interesting and should have been bigger to make people more aware. Toilet not great.

Went here after we were blew away at Ramore Head. Lovely rock pool and fish tanks to view. Books for kids to read and info panels to read. Staff chatted away to each other about eco matters but did tell us some interesting facts about sea life. Not alot else to do but good way to pass an hr plus its free!

What else is their to say. Oh! They call it "The Portrush Coastal Zone" now. If you like stuffed birds, whale bones and simple minded, moralistic environmentalism then this is the place for you. As we all know, Portrush is a wet place, this is a good, free place to take the children when it's wet. Not exciting but remember the word "free!".
