Experience all the beauty that Ireland has to offer in magical Donegal

Donegal is the Northernmost county of Ireland, and unlike some of the more southern regions, has quite a harsh rugged coastline, which lends itself well to some truly excellent links layouts.

This part of Ireland is pretty remote, with unbelieveably raw scenery and the local dialect still very much a part of daily life. From Donegal Town in the south to Ballyliffin in the north, the sense of history and tradition is palpable.

Several outstanding courses line Co. Donegal coastline, which includes Rosapenna, Ballyliffin, Narin & Portnoo, and Donegal Golf Club. All layouts seem no natural and effortlessly woven into the landscape, as if golf was always meant to be here.

Experience all the beauty that Ireland has to offer in magical Donegal

At the turn of the 21st Century, Donegal remained relatively unknown in the world of golf. However, that has since changed and now the Northernmost county of Ireland is finally receiving the recognition it deserves.

Working our way up the coast, the links adventure begins with Donegal Golf Club, which occupies the magnificent Murvagh peninsula in Donegal Bay. Next is the recently restored Narin & Portnoo Links, which is wild and rugged, in a place steeped in ancient history and folklore. As we get up towards the northen tip of Ireland there are two majestic properties in Rosapenna and Ballyliffin that each feature a brace of highly acclaimed courses.

Although remote and tricky to get to, the spectacular County Donegal scenery and incredible coastal golf courses are well worth the effort.

What makes golf in Donegal so special?

Donegal is the perfect destination for an Irish golf trip, and for good reason. The area is quiet, the air is fresh and the beaches are long, perfect for those looking to escape the hustle bustle of everyday life. It may be slightly remote, but the quality of the golf, scenery and hospitality make Donegal an unmissable experience. What’s more, the locals who inhabit this stunning region will always provide you with a warm Irish welcome.

International access is best through Belfast, which is a two hour drive from the town of Donegal. Alternatively a connection to Derry Airport leaves you only 45 minutes from Ballyliffin in the very north. It time permits we highly recommend combining a trip to County Donegal with the north coast or Northern Ireland, where you can play Royal Portrush, Portstewart and Castlerock. That's quite the trip!

When it comes to accommodation, we have some great options. Lough Eske Castle just outside Donegal Town is magnificent and the only five-star establishment in the area. A luxurious retreat dating back to the 17th century, set in 43 acres of woodland in the shaddow of the Blue Stack Mountains.

For a more lively stay we recommend the Station House Hotel in Letterkenny, a boutique style property conveniently located within walking distance of the town's bars, restaurants and nightlife. For equi-distant access to all 3 of the big name courses in this area, Donegal, Rosapenna and Ballyliffin, the Station House Hotel is your best option.

For those that prefer a golf resort and the ability to 'stay & play', then Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort is the complete package with all the trimmings of a four-star resort and two fantastic championship links courses onsite.
