Golf Among the Giants Along the Shores of Ulster


Northern Ireland




April- October


From $2,400/ golfer*

Home to just 2 million people, Northern Ireland punches above its weight in the world of golf. With major champions and championship links venues alike, golf has become an integral part of the county’s identity. Juggernauts Royal County Down and Royal Portrush share the limelight, but next to each are a few other coastal gems that shouldn’t be missed.

Pick Your Trip Duration

Based on our own experiences and those of our past clients, we’ve built 2 bucket list golf trips which we think you will love:

Royal Portrush


Royal County Down


5 Nights, 4 Rounds


What You Can Expect:

The best golf in Northern Ireland is concentrated in pockets on both the northern and southern coastlines and this itinerary makes a stop in each. A few days in County Antrim in the north will allow you to play championship golf, drink local whiskey, and see the stunning Giant’s Causeway. Then you will head south though Belfast to Newcastle, where the Mourne Mountains rise high above the mighty links of Royal County Down.


From $2,400*

Royal Portrush


Royal County Down




7 Nights, 6 Rounds


What You Can Expect:

Adding a few rounds to extend a Northern Ireland-focused is a no-brainer for a lot of clients. Castlerock shares the same stretch of County Antrim coastline with Royal Portrush and Portstewart and Portmarnock is just 20 minutes from the Dublin Airport for a great final round. If time permits, you can even see a bit of the Dublin city-center and perhaps grab at pint at the top of the Guinness Storehouse.

Mid-April through Mid-October is peak travel season when the golf clubs are open and the weather is appropriate for golf (although perfect weather can’t be guaranteed!). July and August can be quite busy with tourists and September is a busy month at the golf clubs, so we recommend May and June if possible.
Our vehicles fit group’s of all sizes so there is no perfect group size. The larger the group, though, the earlier you will need to book your trip to ensure availability.
Absolutely. Your group’s driver will be available to the non-golfers while the golfers are at the course, meaning a fairly full sightseeing itinerary is feasible in conjunction with any golfing itinerary.
The easy answer is: the earlier the better. Let’s be a bit more specific though. Hotels and golf course tee sheets begin to fill up for the busy peak season 6-9 months in advance. To ensure optimal tee time availability, we recommend booking in the fall in the year prior to travel.
