If you arrive in Belfast, our recommendation is definitely not to miss the experience of playing the best course in the world, Royal County Down. You’ll have to drive barely an hour from the airport but it will be well worth it. “The more you play here, the more you realise how special this place is,” says Rory McIllroy, a magical, jaw-dropping place.
After that, the ideal thing to do would be to drive to Portrush and sleep in one of the houses that Lowgolf can provide. Not only is Portrush a wonderful place, but there is also Royal Portrush, home of the 148th edition of The Open in 2019 where Shane Lowrie achieved the feat of being the first local to win on Irish soil, full of excitement and with over 30,000 people cheering him on until the end.
Nearby is Portstewart, a beautiful course where Jon Rahm won the Irish Open in 2017, one of the greatest victories of our Spanish player. After the round, it is a must to have a pint in the clubhouse and take a look at the history on the walls of the corridors, it will surprise you.
