Northern Ireland

Bushmills Hotel, Portrush | Slieve Donard Hotel, Newcastle

Northern Ireland is going through something of a golden period. This small country of just 1.8 million people, has produced three world class golfers who between them since 2010, have won six Major Championships. The quality of the golf courses in the region makes it easy to understand why they have been so successful. Boasting two links courses that are consistently ranked in the Top 100 in the world, Royal Portrush, which will host The Open in 2019 and Royal County Down, Northern Ireland is a mecca for all golfing enthusiasts. Two of the most precious gems in the country include, Royal County Down, host of the 2015 Irish Open and Royal Portrush, confirmed to host The Open Championship in 2019. Off the course there is plenty to keep you occupied from the thriving city of Belfast to traditional villages like Portrush and Newcastle.
