Me and Mrs Jones is the North Coast’s only authentic boutique, luxury, lifestyle hotel. The most unique and attractive in its area, the quirky-modern hotel decor has been carefully chosen and boasts a sense of space and opulence throughout.All rooms are over-sized with king beds, flat screen TVs, tables, expansive window walls, plus free-standing bath-tubs and individual shower-rooms for that extra mile of luxury. Within walking distance is the recent host of the Irish Open – Portstewart Golf Club and in the sister town of Portrush you can find the world-famous Royal Portrush.
Portstewart G.C. This course originally known mainly for the spectacular first hole has had a major reshaping which led to a rapid rise up the rankings. It is situated on the Causeway coast between Portrush and Coleraine. 18 holes, 6784 yards, par 72.
Dunluce Castle is one of Northern Ireland’s most iconic historic monuments, perched on the north Antrim coastline on a dramatic rocky promontory. The dramatic history of Dunluce is matched by tales of banshees, mermaids and the story of how the castle kitchens fell into the sea one stormy night in 1639. Dunluce is also regarded as the possible inspiration for Cair Paravel in C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia.
Royal Portrush G.C. Founded in 1888, this is the only club in Ireland to have staged a British Open Championship. It is a difficult driving course, the greens are large, the bunkers deep and the views exceptional. Royal Portrush is certainly beautiful and it has one of the most dramatic entrances to any golf course. As you wind your way towards the course along the coastal road, the crumpled, undulating links land suddenly appears in front of you, flags fluttering in the breeze. 18 holes, 6818 yards, par 72.
One of Irelands outstanding sights of natural beauty. It is a strange natural phenomenon, a mass of 37,000 mainly hexagonal pillars of volcanic basalt. The pillars extend for about 3 miles along the coast. The top of the pillars form stepping stones from the bottom of the cliff until they disappear into the sea.
Glashedy Links G.C. This course provides a roller coaster tour of this remarkable lunar like landscape. At many 36 hole complexes, the newer golf course is often perceived as inferior. Nothing could be further from the truth at Ballyliffin as Glashedy Links is recognized as the championship course and probably the better of the two though this is purely a matter of personal choice. 18 holes, 7135 yard par 72.
Sightseeing Suggestion: Mussenden Temple
Mussenden Temple is located in the beautiful surroundings of Downhill Demesne near Castlerock in County Londonderry. It perches dramatically on a 120 ft cliff top, high above the Atlantic Ocean on the north-western coast of Northern Ireland, offering spectacular views westwards over Downhill Strand towards Magilligan Point and County Donegal and to the east Castlerock beach towards Portstewart, Portrush and Fair Head. Both the Temple and the surrounding views are among the most photographed scenes in Ireland.
Royal County Down G.C. A natural links course, often ranked #1 in The British Isles, it is a tough course to play in the wind with narrow fairways, many small slick greens and dunes and gorse providing many hazards. Royal County Down is located in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful links settings in the Murlough Nature Reserve. Against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne, the links stretches along the shores of Dundrum Bay, zigzagging back and forth to provide a different vista from virtually every hole. As of 2020, all groups playing the Championship course must have a forecaddie with each game as a minimum caddie requirement.18 holes, 6692 yards, par 71.
The Grand Hotel. This offers a full four star service with extensive accommodation, leisure, conference, banquet facilities; complimented by the Colonnade Restaurant, Palm Court Carvery & Ryan's Bar. The Grand Hotel is still just 15 minutes from Dublin International airport and 5 minutes from the M50 motorway. There is also the DART rail and regular bus services to Dublin City, about 25 minutes away. Malahide, This award winning town bustles with life. Situated by Malahide Estuary, the Grand Hotel is the anchor around which much of the town was built. The main visitor attraction is Malahide Castle with its extensive demesne and art collection from the National Portrait Galley. The town has a beautiful Marina and boasts a wide variety of restaurants, pubs and shops. There is much to see and do in the area including golf on the Championship course at Portmarnock or any of the other seven nearby courses.
The Mournes stand true to the words of songwriter Percy French as the place ‘where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea’. They are not only one of Ireland’s most scenic areas and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), they are quite simply an adventurer’s paradise. One man felt the magic of the Mournes more than most. For Belfast-born Clive Staples Lewis, or CS Lewis as we know him better, the Mournes were a pleasure ground. The author was reared on the clean Mourne air, while his mind was inspired by these surroundings to create the world of Narnia from his masterpiece The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
The Island G.C. Until the mid 1970s, this course could only be reached by rowing a boat from the village of Malahide with the fare included in the green fee. It is an old-fashioned type of course not too long but deceptively tough with a number of semi-blind holes. Throughout its history The Island has valued and protected its natural heritage. Confirmation of this is a skylark on the club crest. A round of golf on The Island links is not just an exciting and exhilarating golfing experience, but an opportunity to renew and refresh associations with the wonderful world of nature. 18 holes, 6646 yards, par 71.
There is something for everybody in Dublin, heritage sights, theatres, fashionable shops, singing pubs, fine restaurants. Some of the top heritage sights are Trinity College, National Museum, Dublin Castle, St Patrick's Cathedral. It is easy to walk to most of the attractions and entertainment as the centre is quite compact.
Portmarnock G.C. This course is located to the north of Dublin on a peninsula with water on three sides. The Old course can be as tough as any in the world. On a fine day, there are spectacular views all around. A wonderful place for a round of golf. All groups of 3 players or more are requested to have a fore caddy or individual caddies with their group.18 holes, 7182 yards, par 72.
