The Slieve Donard Resort & Spa is celebrating after The Telegraph placed it in the top 10 of Britain’s Best Golf Hotels, as the only hotel in Northern Ireland to be included in this prestigious list.

The resort, which was the Official Host Hotel for the 2015 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hosted by The Rory Foundation, joined renowned names throughout Britain including Gleneagles and Turnberry in Scotland and the Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.

Set against the stunning backdrop of the Mourne Mountains, the hotel welcomed world renowned golfers including Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell, Darren Clarke, Ernie Els, Rickie Fowler, Padraig Harrington and Sergio Garcia during May’s Irish Open and is located next door to Royal County Down, which is widely regarded as one of the best golf courses in the world.

Stephen Meldrum, general manager of the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa, said: “We are thrilled to have been named by The Telegraph as one of the top 10 golf hotels in Britain. Not only that, but we are the only hotel in Northern Ireland to have been included in this prestigious list. This accolade follows a busy period for us after our role as the Official Hotel for the 2015 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hosted by The Rory Foundation.

“The Slieve Donard Resort is the perfect hotel of choice for golfers playing in Royal County Down as there is nothing better after a day on the greens than to come to relax, unwind and enjoy some delicious food and a great night sleep. We also have a range of tailored spa treatments including the Golfers Tonic.”
