See you at The Open 2019

During the week of the 14th of July 2019, Northern Ireland will once again play host to the most esteemed golf tournament, The Open. Every year, the world’s elite golfers put their skills to the test with the aim of cementing their legacy and achieving the title of Championship Golfer of the Year.

Royal Portrush Golf Club

The Open 19 PortrushIn July of 2019, The 148th Open will take place at the legendary Royal Portrush. It is the only Club in Ireland to have previously hosted The Open, lending itself to be one of the top courses in the world. Founded in 1888, Royal Portrush has two Championship Courses – the renowned Dunluce Course and the smaller but equally enjoyable Valley Course. Both command impressive views across the North Atlantic with breathtaking views of Scotland and Donegal. Located just a short drive away, is the equally legendary and historic Bushmills Inn.

After having spent the day watching championship golf, why not enjoy some exquisite cuisine inspired by fresh, locally sourced ingredients? Our restaurant is one of the most idyllic places to eat in Bushmills. Our menus celebrate the finest Irish produce, combining much-loved signature dishes with a nod to the finest artisan producers and local farmers and fishermen who source the very best ingredients for us. These can be paired with the extensive wine list we have to suit all tastes. Or enjoy the long summer evening on our patio with some al fresco drinks.
