Discover one of Ireland's best kept secrets with explorenorth, Donegal's day tour & small group travel specialists



The North Coast of Ireland is home to some of the very best golf in the world with stunning links courses, spectacular scenery, and a very warm welcome. This summer, Inishowen and Donegal took great pride in seeing Ballyliffin Golf Club host the 2018 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. The spectacular Glashedy Links, the wonderful coastal views beamed across the world and the huge Céad Míle Fáilte that awaited the many national and international visitors to this part of Ireland, made the event a huge success.

Portstewart, the host of the 2017 Irish Open and Royal Portrush who will enjoy the accolade of hosting the 148th British Open in 2019, are only a ferry trip away from Inishowen and can be accessed in less than an hour meaning many of Ireland's top championship courses are within close proximity to each other on Ireland's north coast. Inishowen is therefore the ideal base to host your next golfing holiday! 

In Donegal itself, a number of courses feature prominently in Ireland's top course guides with Ballyliffin Golf Club's two 18-hole jewels, the Glashedy Links and Old Links both featuring in the top 20. Explorenorth is strategically positioned to offer golfers a premium tour and transfer service between any of the top courses in the north-west of Ireland. Many of these courses are located on the periphery of Lough Foyle and we use the ferry service to take the short drive between courses. We specialise in catering for small groups using comfortable, highly specified vehicles. We can also look after any non-golfers in your party by providing guided tours of the local area.

We are also willing to advise and assist with any other arrangements including tee times and accommodation provision. As a local agent, we can advise on hotels, self-catering and B&B providers and help you devise a schedule to play the courses you want and keep costs to a minimum.

We will arrange a full transportation package including:

  • Pick-up and drop-off from Dublin, Belfast & Shannon Airports
  • Premium specification vehicles with ample accommodation for clubs and luggage.
  • Friendly, courteous, professional drivers
  • Guided tours for any non-golfers
  • Transfers between courses and hotels
