Now that Northern Ireland is hosting the 148th British Open in 2019 we have had a rise in interest from golfing groups around the globe! This was most evident last month when we welcomed our VIP golf group from Singapore who enjoyed a wonderful week playing on many of our finest courses including Castlerock, Royal Portrush and Royal Belfast.
For many of these clients it was their first time in the island of Ireland so we put together an itinerary to show the best of what we can offer for both the golfers and their equally important travelling partners! Destinations included Donegal and the Inishowen area, Derry/Londonderry, the charming Bushmills Inn and of course the VIP treatment at Bushmills Whiskey Distillery before heading to the famous Giant’s Causeway!
We then headed to beautiful Co Down and visited Mount Stewart, and Strangford - and of course no visit to Northern Ireland is complete without visiting the ‘Best Visitor Attraction in Europe’ 2015, the Titanic Visitor Experience, Belfast!
Our clients were based in the Hastings Hotels group and over 6 days were given the VIP treatment of private check-ins, private dining in the sophisticated Oak Restaurant of the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa, complete with bespoke menu, which was tailored to fit their cultural tastes. These small touches show we’re willing to go that ‘extra mile’ for you and your clients, and the whole Hastings staff really did an outstanding job in making our clients feel welcome!
Producing a dual itinerary for our golfing group and their partners really encapsulates those ‘little touches’ that Bespoke Northern Ireland can offer your clients. We understand how important it is to keep those non golfers happy too!
If you are looking for a golfing experience like no other, we would be delighted to work with your group. Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org where we can discuss your specific requirements. Maybe you would like to play the ‘Home of the 2019 Open’ and its neighbouring courses too?
