The Open is at Royal Portrush Golf Club in the small seaside town of Portrush, Northern Ireland. As a perspective on size, NI is very small, so if you can’t find accommodation in the Portrush area itself (much has gone) most of NI is accessible within 1.5hrs of Portrush! Within 30 mins – 1 hour’s drive you could stay in the Glens, The Sperrin mountains, Londonderry, next to vast empty sandy surf beaches or anywhere on our beautiful rugged coast made famous by the Game of Thrones and of course the Giants Causeway. So don’t panic if the term ‘Portrush’ gives you zero returns. In this section we’ll give you local knowledge for some amazing alternatives not too far away that will help you see the golf and also have an incredible taste of NI whilst you’re here!
