North West 200 Motorcycle Race

Sports in Portstewart

Ireland’s biggest outdoor sporting event is run on a road circuit taking in Portrush, Portstewart and Coleraine; you can see the starting grid painted on the main road at Portstewart's eastern edge. It attracts up to 100,000 spectators; if you’re not one of them, it’s best to avoid the area on the race weekend.
