2018 was the year when one of Ireland’s hidden gems was brought to the attention of the golfing world. Ballyliffin Golf Club, nestled amid spectacular scenery, hosted the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. Ballyliffin has long been a favoured course of Nick Faldo and Rory McIlroy, so it came as little surprise when a television commentator remarked during the event “It’s like God built this place with a links course in mind.”

It is, however, not the only top class course in Inishowen; in fact there are four other superb courses. Buncrana has two links courses; the Northwest Golf Club (18 hole) and the Buncrana Golf Club (9 hole). On the east coast, Greencastle Golf Club also has a links course (18 hole) while the Redcastle Hotel has a parkland course (9 hole).

Renowned for quality accommodation, excellent value and warm hospitality, Inishowen is the perfect destination for a golfing break.
