Northern Ireland's coastline

Golf holidays in Portrush & Portstewart

The north of Ireland has many great golf holiday venues, one of the finest is the coast directly north of Belfast, around Portrush and Portstewart.  Here, in addition to some wonderful seascapes there are half-a-dozen excellent golf courses.  The most famous of these is Royal Portrush (set to be an Open venue again in 2019), but the Strand course at Portstewart gives it a good run for its money!

The golf courses of Portrush and Portstewart are set closely together making it easy to get from one to another: ideal for your golf break.

The town of Portrush is the ideal place to stay for golf holidays in Northern Ireland.  It is a small town, with a pleasant, slightly jaded feel that is predominantly a holiday resort, so there are some good hotels in Portrush and plenty of places to wine and dine too!


Portstewart is the next stop along the coast and a larger town than Portrush, but again one that makes most of its living from tourism although there are some more commercial activities too, such as fishing.

Generally speaking, the best holiday hotels are to be found in Portrush so we concentrate our golf holidays here rather than Portstewart.  However, if you would like to stay in Portstewart please let us know as there are one or two good places to stay here too.

Getting to Portrush & Portstewart
