Anchor Bar Complex


Situated within easy access to Portstewart's picturesque promenade and all of the town's amenities, the Anchor Bar Complex, incorporating the Anchorage Inn, Anchorage Bistro and Aura Nightclub, is known throughout Ireland for its convivial atmosphere, friendliness and of course great Guinness.

Some of the North Coast's spectacular and most popular attractions are all within easy reach. The Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle , Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the world famous Old Bushmills Distillery are located close by.

The Anchorage Bistro and style bar is a feature of the Anchorage Inn in Portstewart's lively Anchor Complex. The location is hard to beat, smack bang on the Promenade and the food here is very good. With a menu featuring dishes like Bushmills whiskey sausages and fresh local catch of the day land and sea is well represented on the menu. There is nightly entertainment, always free to guests and diners. A perfect way to burn off those extra calories.

Everybody on the North Coast knows the Anchor Bar. It’s been part of the towns furniture since 1898. That makes it the oldest traditional bar in the area. The Anchor is renowned for its friendly staff and great nightly entertainment. Well worth a visit! Traditional music session every Thursday.

Club Aura is one of Northern Ireland's hottest nightclubs. This sumptuously decorated venue offers something for all age groups. Open three nights a week to 01:00, the club offers something for everyone and we promise that you will never get bored.
