Barry’s amusements in Portrush will not open throughout the 2020 season.
In a statement a spokesperson for the company said :
Following the latest Government advice in relation to the easing of Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions and after consultation with our health and safety and legal advisors, we have taken the decision not to open Barry’s during the 2020 season.
Our priority has always been the safety and well-being of our staff and customers. However, given the size and nature of our premises and given the multiple surfaces and touch-points, we as a family do not believe we can guarantee a safe environment for the large numbers of customers who normally visit us.
We understand that this will be disappointing for a lot of people but we hope you can appreciate the reasons why we have had to come to this difficult decision.
We thank you all for your continued support.
