Portrush Coastal Zone is a perfect place to wait out the rain. In addition to a rock pool touch tank stocked with native sea creatures, this seafront visitor center boasts marine and coastal exhibits, a library and children's activity area. Time and Tides, the current exhibit, talks to Northern Ireland's marine environment and tells of the sea's importance to the region.
