Portrush Harbour Bar is Northern Ireland's Pub of the Year


The Harbour Bar has been named Northern Ireland's Pub of the Year.

The Portrush watering hole won the Pubs of Ulster award at the La Mon House Hotel gala ceremony last night.

The historic quayside pub, part of the popular Ramore group of eateries, claims to have the largest stock of malt whiskeys available, as well as Guinness stored just below the counter to ensure the perfect pint.

The pub, which was up against finalists The Dirty Duck Alehouse in Holywood, and Belfast's Horatio Todd's, Kelly's Cellars and The Garrick, also won an award for the best charity initiative.

Forty premises went head-to-head hoping to be named the toast of the trade at the top industry awards.

This year the event was hosted by Apprentice star Jim Eastwood.

Pubs of Ulster chairman, Mark Stewart, said: "It has been a tough year for our industry, but we are now here to celebrate our great pubs."
