GOLF GUIDE TO IRELAND: NORTHERN REGION
The northern area of Ireland is politically separated between Northern Ireland and the northwest of the Republic of Ireland. Along the north coast are 10 superb links courses, from the famous Royal Portrush in the east to the hidden gems in County Donegal at Ballyliffin, Rosapenna and Portsalon.
Bushmills is the most popular base in County Antrim, just minutes from the triumvirate of famous courses. Bushmills is home to the famous whiskey distillery and also very close to the magnificent Giants Causeway. See Art's North Antrim Guide
Letterkenny is one of Ireland's fastest growing towns and is an ideal base for exploring the links both north and south.

Donegal Town is an old and historic town.
Sligo is one of Ireland's smaller cities and provides a good selection of accommodations, retaurants and bars. Just north is the spectacular Ben Bulben mountain and Yeats country.
Treavelling time between the links at Portstewart/Portrush/Castlerock and the two great links at Ballyliffin has been dramtically reduced by the introduction of a 20 minute ferry croosing across Lough Foyle. The journey between Ballyliffin and the peninsulas north of Letterkenny has been similarly reduced by the introduction of the Lough Swilly Ferry.
