After your round make sure to visit the bar, lounge and the gallery in the oldest building in the world to be used as a genuine clubhouse. Parts of the fabric of the building are no later than 1405AD. That’s a time when Henry IV was the King of England and almost half a century before Columbus was born.
In our bar you’ll find a complete range of beers, including our locally brewed beer from the micro-brewery in the village, along with one of the finest pints of Guinness available anywhere in Ireland. If spirits are your tipple, try out something from our Irish malt whiskey (with an “e”) selection or one of the currently fashionable designer gins.
Ardglass is a working fishing village, and while the snack, lunch and dinner menus are varied and cater for all tastes, you would be foolish to pass up on the opportunity to partake of the fresh fish and seafood that’s always available.
Ireland teems with history and culture and has unique experiences that are available to the golfer with a little free time. Locally, the grave of our patron saint, St. Patrick, can be found in Downpatrick. At the National Trust property of Castle Ward you will find “Winterfell”, the location of the Stark home in the HBO series “Game of Thrones”.
Slightly further afield you can experience the Titanic Museum in Belfast, the inspiring Mourne Mountains, the aspiring “Ring of Gullion” in Co. Armagh and the stunning UNESCO site that is the “Giant’s Causeway” on the north coast of our island.
Travel still further, and Dublin, Galway, Waterford, Cork, Blarney Castle and the “Ring of Kerry” all await exploration and enjoyment. The “Book of Kells”, the Guinness Brewery, Newgrange, the Cliffs of Moher and the Marble Arch Caves are just some of the unique places to visit and relish in Ireland.
Golf may be your reason for visiting Ireland, but with just a little effort, you will find so much more to experience.
The links below just give a sample of what’s available to the traveller who wants to step out of the golf world.
