The Portrush Townhouse

A central part of the Portrush community for many years, Portrush Townhouse was acquired as part of The Surf Project in Summer 2020. Portrush Townhouse has a longstanding relationship with the Project; years of surf residentials and school retreats have taken place here. Our Manager even recalls dancing through the hallways in her wedding dress for an excited group of teenagers staying on a residential weekend.

As a registered charity Portrush Townhouse exists to give back, offering a safe space to anchor down through the storms of life. Whether you’re an adventure seeker on a Surf & Stay experience, a family in need of a home from home hideaway or a wayfaring stranger in search of a bed, we have space for you.

Our spaces are created with community in mind with each piece of furniture and décor bought from local creators, handmade by staff and interns or gifted by friendly North Coast Neighbours. Our hope is that you feel welcome, safe and at home in every space here.

We offer tailored package weekends, safe spaces to share and socialise, internet access, private bedrooms as well as self-catering units, discounts at locally owned businesses and eateries and great craic.

Portrush Townhouse - a great place to anchor down!

REVIEWS

The room was perfect, clean and tidy. Position of the hostel was good, next to the coast and to services and shops. Reception was warm and welcoming. Free parking in the streets around the hostel.

SwalleroITALY

The service was extra nice and helpful. I asked for a birthday cake for my friends and it was waiting for us in the fridge! Thank you very much for the wonderful service!

EwelinaLITHUANIA

DuncanUK

The place was perfect and spotlessly clean.

ShaneIRELAND

I have stayed in hostels all over the world and never felt so welcomed. The management couple of Rebekah and Rob were an absolute dream team. Very reasonable pricing for the area. If Jesus stayed in hostels he'd stay here!
