Lucky you! The golf and atmosphere will be amazing. With Ballyliffin you get stunning links golf as well as incredible views of the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal. And the fun won’t stop as soon as you step away from the spectator rope during July’s Irish Open.

Location wise, you’re at the north western tip of the island on Fanad Head and only a minute away from Pollan Bay, if you fancy a dip, or access to Binion Hill, a designated hill walk! Climb the 76 steps of Fanad Head Lighthouse, which has been safeguarding seafarers since 1817, and hear the stories of shipwrecked parrots and lost gold on the lighthouse tour. Or explore the Doagh Famine Village – Pat Doherty established the exhibition in honour of his family’s survival during the Great Famine.

Want to get the adrenaline pumping? The Wild Atlantic Adventure Centre beckons with pier jumping, coast steering and even quad safaris. They also do heritage trails if you prefer to roam the countryside on foot or horseback. And to treat yourself, you must indulge in some Voya seaweed treatments at the Ballyliffin Lodge & Spa.

Not forgetting food, of course! Dine out in the Lemon Tree Restaurant in Letterkenny for contemporary Irish cooking inspired by classic French roots.

Community members, do you have more suggestions you’d like to share?

Hello,
Don’t be short of things to do once the golf in Ballyliffin has finished.
Come across to Northern Ireland on the Foyle Ferry and explore the delights of the Causeway Coast and Glens of Antrim. The Causeway Coastal Route – one of the world’s great road journeys – takes its name from The Giant’s Causeway – Northern Ireland’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site – with its amazing hexagonal stones and columns. This road runs from the walled city of Derry-Londonderry all the way to Belfast, the birthplace of the Titanic. The road hugs the coast and takes in stunning cliffs, unspoilt beaches, bustling villages, secluded river valleys, not to mention the world class links courses of Portstewart Golf Club which hosted the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in July 2017 and Royal Portrush Golf Club where The Open will be held in July 2019!  Nearby is Bushmills, Ireland’s first licensed whiskey distillery offering tours and samplings, Dunluce Castle on its rocky promontory, and for the brave, there is always the challenge of crossing Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge!
Check out our web-site www.visitcausewaycoastandglens.com for more details.  Contact us at Coleraine Visitor Information Centre if we can be of further help to you.
Come across and visit us!   You will be most welcome!
Mary.
