North West Ireland Regional Overview
This region is home to a plethora of outstanding links courses. Kevin Markham, golf author and photographer, has played them all and tells us why they are all so special...
North West Ireland will take your breath away - everywhere you look, the scenery is stunning, with the landscape an avalanche of spectacular colors. As the sun shines on the mountains they take on a purple hue and you wouldn't be at all surprised to spy a mischievous leprechaun ambling down the road.
Throughout the area are a host of beautiful towns and villages, each occupied by locals who give all visitors a warm welcome. Pop into a pub just about any evening of the week and you are likely to find yourself listening to a group of locals making music together, with everybody else encouraged to join in. Who knows? You may even find yourself dancing to the traditional Irish music. And you are highly likely to make friends for life.
