Bid now on this five-night, four-round package, taking golfers through the finest courses in Northern Ireland, presenting the true links experience on varying terrains with brilliant views.

You and a guest will play a round of golf at Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Portstewart Strand and Ballycastle and enjoy accommodations for five nights at Bushmills Inn.

Royal County Down
Situated in the shadows of the Mourne Mountains. A spectacular location and an outstanding links golf course. It's charm lies in the old fashioned flavour of both the terrain and the layout. A mix of rugged dunes, coloured by a blend of purple heather and yellow flowering gorse combine to a dramatic effect on what is one of the toughest courses in the British Isles. Venue for the Walker Cup in 2007 and consistently ranked in the top 10 courses in the world!

Royal Portrush
An outstanding course in a dramatic setting. It holds the distinction of being the only course to have ever hosted The Open outside of Scotland and England which it did in 1951 and will again in 2019. The Dunluce Course is as fine a links as you will find anywhere, with the 5th being a particularly memorable hole to a green hanging on the edge of a cliff. Consistently ranked in the top 20 of the world's best courses, nearly every legend of golf has taken on the challenge of Royal Portrush.

Portstewart Strand
In 1992, seven new holes opened in the huge sandhills behind the first green, which added a new dimension to playing golf at Portstewart. The natural shape of the land is ideal for classic links golf with elevated tees, rolling valleys, and subtle doglegs providing a magnificent challenge. Now regarded as one of the top courses in Ireland. 

This course is a unique golfing challenge in that it covers both parkland and links holes. The first five holes are parkland in nature, flanked by the Rivers Margy and Carey with various trees and natural hills as the main landscape. The 12th century Bon-a-Margy abbey ruins provides a historical out of bounds. From hole six onwards, you are presented with some outstanding links golf holes running alongside the strand and between gorse and sand dunes encompassing impressive views of the famous North Antrim Coastline, Scotland and the hills of Donegal.

Bushmills Inn
n the village that is home to the world's oldest distillery, between the Giants Causeway and royal Portrush Golf Club, this award-winning hotel and restaurant has been outstandingly successful in re-creating it's origins as an old Coaching and Mill House. Open peat fires, gas lights and striped pine set the tone in this living museum of Ulster Hospitality while the Restaurant has an international reputation in serving the best of new Irish cuisine. In 2009, Bushmills Inn unveiled a new extension consisting of 19 over-sized bedrooms and a new reception, bringing the total rooms to 41 which allowed the hotel to advance to a Four Star property whilst still maintaining the same theme throughout.
