Dhu Varren is a railway halt in the townland of Glenmanus at the western edge of Portrush in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is an unstaffed halt on the Coleraine-Portrush railway line, less than a mile from the terminus, with a single platform.

It was opened on 10 February 1969[1] mainly to cater for travel to the station at Coleraine University.[2]

It has a surviving "somersault" type semaphore signal.

Service

From Monday to Saturday, an hourly service operates. In one direction, trains alternate every hour between shuttle services to and from Coleraine, and through services to and from Great Victoria Street. The shuttle services connect with trains to and from Londonderry Waterside at Coleraine. In the other direction, trains operate every hour to Portrush.


On Sunday, there are no through services to Belfast, and only a shuttle service operates between Coleraine and Portrush every two hours. Passengers intending for stations elsewhere on the Belfast-Derry railway line must change trains at Coleraine.
