If you are among the thousands of golf fans descending on the north coast for this week’s Irish Open, the advice from organisers is to plan your journey in advance.

There are a variety of ways to get to Royal Portrush Golf Club and organisers are hoping to make it as smooth as possible.

Translink, in addition to its normal scheduled services, is putting on dedicated coach and train services for the duration of the event, plus park and ride facilities within a five-mile radius of the resort.

The PSNI is advising motorists to adhere to the scheme. Signs regarding this are in place along the route into Royal Portrush.

Online train ticket sales for dedicated Irish Open services tomorrow and Friday are now closed, however some tickets will be available from stations on each day.

Golf train tickets for Saturday and Sunday are available both online and from stations on the day.

Translink is also running dedicated golf coach services subject to demand and are available to book online only.

Golf coach service online ticket bookings will close at 5pm on the day prior to travel.

The coaches will collect spectators from Armagh; Banbridge; Bangor; Belfast; Cookstown; Dungannon; Holywood; Larne; Limavady; Lisburn; Derry; Lurgan; Maghera; Magherafelt; Moira; Newcastle; Newry; Newtownards; Omagh, Portadown and Strabane.

Coach and train day return tickets are £15 per adult and £7.50 per child.

For further information, including ticket bookings, go to or call Translink on 028 9066 6630.
