North West Ireland & Northern Ireland Golf Holidays

If golf resorts are your thing then options in the North include Irish Open venue Galgorm which is conveniently handy for Portrush and Portstewart, Lough Erne Resort in the beautiful Fermanagh Lakelands or Rosapenna with 2 and soon to be 3 top-class links courses onsite.

If you prefer to stay in a town then we would recommend Derry/Londonderry or Portrush, both have an excellent choice of bars and restaurants to choose from and not far to travel to experience Open and Irish Open venues aplenty. 

An area blessed with well-known links golf courses such as Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Portstewart and Ballyliffin and hidden gems such as Ardglass, Portsalon, Castlerock and Enniscrone. The area has a few top class golf resorts such as Rosapenna, Lough Erne and Galgorm. 

Cities like Belfast and Londonderry or the seaside town of Portrush are an ideal base when visiting the area, golf during the day and enjoy some local culture in the evenings.

The Open Championship was played in Portrush in 2019 and the Irish Open has been held in Portstewart, Ballyliffin and Galgorm in recent years so plenty of chances to follow in the footsteps of the games best players.

Why choose North West Ireland & Northern Ireland for a golf holiday?

Northern Ireland is so easy to get to from Scotland, England and Wales, whether it be a short flight or a relaxing ferry crossing we think you should make the trip. A friendly welcome wherever you go, stunning scenery, world class golf courses and a lot of history to be told. It is easy to book the trip yourself but let us make it that little bit more special with our knowledge and contacts. 

Getting There:

How long are flights from UK?

Flights into Belfast International, Belfast City or City of Derry airport are available from all round the UK with airlines such as Easyjet, Loganair and Ryanair. Flights are mostly under an hour which is an excellent choice for a quick getaway. 

You can also get to Belfast via the sea with Stena from Cairnryan which is just over a 2 hour sailing or Liverpool which is an 8 hour sailing. 
 

Best Golfing Weather

Weather in NW Ireland & Northern Ireland

Very similar climate to England, Scotland and Wales, the best chance of getting dry weather is May to September but April and October can be mild. The coastal areas of Ireland are always windy which is part of the challenge and the appeal when tackling the links courses. 

April and October are considered shoulder season for a lot of courses and so excellent value months to visit. If you are ok with slightly colder weather then March and November are cheaper again.
 

Top Tips for a golf holiday in North West Ireland & Northern Ireland:

Must visit

The Giants Causeway on the North Coast is well worth a visit, only a 15 minutes’ drive from Portrush. The only world Heritage site in Northern Ireland is well worth a visit. 

Nightlife

Pubs and Restaurants, Belfast and Londonderry are full of fantastic pubs and the choice of restaurants in both cities is plentiful. There is plenty of night time entertainment in Northern Ireland, it’s always a night to remember so why not try several. 

Game of Thrones

Any Game of Thrones fan will love being able to visit some of the iconic locations from the show that was shot in the North for over 10 years. 

Scenic Drive

There are several beautiful drives in the region, the North Coast of Northern Ireland between Larne and Portrush is stunning and over in Donegal part of the Wild Atlantic Way is highly recommended by us.

Bushmills distillery

Visit the world-famous Bushmills distillery in County Antrim, an educational tour followed by a sample or two is hard to beat.
