Family Fun at Coleraine

Family Fun

When it comes to family fun, the Lower Bann is guaranteed to keep everyone happy from adventure-seeking teenagers to enthusiastic toddlers!

With great walking routes that bring you into the heart of nature; clean, calm waters that are ideal for paddle boarding and kayaking; and fun play centres that serve up hours of giddy entertainment, the Lower Bann is the perfect place for a family holiday with a difference. 

Watersports

See the Lower Bann from a different perspective by taking to the water! There are some great family-friendly watersports available all along the river, from a fast-paced day out on a river or lough cruise with Abhainn Cruises to quiet kayaking trips that allow you to get close to nature. During the summer, don't miss the big on-the-water attraction just outside Coleraine – The Edge Watersports at The Crannagh Activity Centre. A huge inflatable waterpark springs up here every summer from May to September and is a brilliant family day out, no matter what the weather.

Walks

Fabulous forests, fun canal-side strolls and wonderfully wild woods – when it comes to enjoyable walks, the Lower Bann delivers with a great selection of short routes that suit all the family. Younger kids will love frolicking along the lovely trails that wind through Portglenone Forest, while scampering over the Anglo-Norman fort in Mountsandel Wood serves up a big dose of fun along with great views. And with walks in Kilrea Forest, Toome Canal and Somerset Riverside Park in Coleraine, there are countless opportunities to enjoy the natural wonders of this part of the world.

Jet Centre, Coleraine

The ultimate entertainment destination, the Jet Centre in Coleraine is perfect for rainy days or even just some high-octane time out. There's a cinema, a bowling alley, arcade games, mini-golf, a great Chinese restaurant called Yoko and one of Northern Ireland's largest soft play centres, which caters for children up to 12 years old. Rainy days sorted... 

Mullins Ice Cream, Kilrea

Founded in 1954, Mullins Ice Cream is a family favourite and there's a good reason why – drop into their ice-cream shop in the heart of the picturesque village of Kilrea and you'll be treated to an abundance of great traditional flavours from raspberry ripple to chocolate. Definitely one not to be missed.

Surfing, Portrush

Voted as one of the top three surfing schools in the UK and Ireland, Troggs in Portrush is perfect for everyone from complete beginners to more experienced surfers. The two-hour private family lesson offers a great chance for learning to surf with your kids in one of the most beautiful coastal locations in the world.

Drumaheglis Marina

Perfect for a relaxed family day out, the Drumaheglis Marina is heaven on a sunny day when the barbecues are fired up and the picnic areas buzz with activity. There are table tennis areas, a grass volleyball court, a woodland nature walk and a safe children's area.
