The Culloden Estate & Spa is the perfect location for a golfing break in Belfast

The Culloden Estate and Spa is the ideal location for the perfect golfer’s getaway. The hotel is adjacent to Royal Belfast Golf Club, which is the oldest golf club in Ireland, founded in 1881.  The present course dates back to 1925 and offers unrivalled views of Belfast Lough and the Antrim plateau. It provides a stern golfing challenge which requires accuracy at each hole rather than length, and the numerous bunkers and subtly sloped greens ensure that posting a low score is a difficult test. 

Alternatively, the home course of Rory McIlroy, Holywood Golf Club is just minutes from the hotel, set high in the Holywood Hills with breath-taking coastal views. At various times during the year, fans can see The Claret Jug, the US Open and USPGA trophies on display – these are Rory’s replica trophies that he keeps after winning each tournament and guests are able to have their photograph taken with them upon request.

After a round on the golf course, guests can enjoy a relaxing meal in the Cultra Inn or Mitre Restaurant, a cocktail in the Crozier Lounge, or a recuperating treatment in the Spa.
