Royal County Down is in the world's most naturally beautiful link settings in the Murlough Nature Reserve. Against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne, the links stretch along the shores of Dundrum Bay, zigzagging back and forth to provide a different vista from virtually every hole.

Portrush Golf Club (Dunlunce Links) Proud host to the 148th and 153rd Open Championships, the Dunluce Links is recognized as one of the top 10 golf courses in the world and known for its challenging greens. The Dunluce Links is rated as one of the world's most challenging and spectacular links courses. The Links is named after the nearby ruins of the medieval Dunluce Castle, located on the edge of a basalt outcropping overlooking the sea between Portrush and Portballintrae.

Portstewart Golf Club (The Strand Course) - What can be said of the mighty Strand Course? Dubbed as 'the sleeping giant', do you dare to tackle it? It is, without a doubt, one of the very top true links golf courses in Ireland. It easily stands alongside the two Ulster Royals, Portrush and County Down. The brainchild of Willie Park Jr and Des Giffin, ably assisted by undulating dunes, the runoff bunkers, rolling fairways, and tricky manicured greens. A 'true test of golf' is a much-overused phrase, but in this case, it reflects the variety and ingenuity of the shots required to get around this masterpiece of a golf course.
Situated on the shoreline of a rugged peninsula, The Links Portmarnock was the first golf course that the International Management Group (IMG) developed in Ireland and opened for play in 1995. The recent investment programme by new owners Kennedy Wilson has included upgrading machinery, and extensive course upgrades, including creating a short game area, riveting traditional links pot bunkers, grass pathways, and all enhancements that entirely use the dunes and natural terrain.
Old Head, par 72, comprises five Par 5s, five Par 3s, and eight Par 4s - stretches from the ladies' tees at 5,413 yards to over 7,100 yards from the tips, with a minimum of six tees per hole, making it suitable for golfers of all handicap abilities. Nine holes play along the cliff tops, with all eighteen holes providing unsurpassed ocean views. With the ever-changing sea breezes, the course offers a stern but fair test to the touring pro and the high handicapper alike.

Ireland - Weather Guide:
The best time to visit Ireland is between March and May and September to November when it’s not as crowded as it is in summer or as cold as it is in winter. That said, Ireland has a mild, temperate climate, and although it’s sometimes rainy, you can visit all year round. The weather changes are generally not extreme.
Summer (June, July, and August) is the warmest time of year when Ireland’s landscapes are at their most vibrant and the days are at their longest. However, it’s also crowded, and prices are at a premium.
In June, golf courses are in peak condition, meaning the greens and fairways should be in great shape. However, July and August are equally excellent months to play golf in Ireland, with temperatures ranging from the high 50s to mid-70s Fahrenheit.
