If you are ever in the Monaghan area, have your golf clubs in the boot, and a few hours to kill, you will be doing yourself a favour by paying a visit to the Nuremore Golf and Country Club.
Or better still if you’re looking for a nice relaxing weekend you can enjoy the four-star accommodation located just outside the town on beautiful mature grounds.
Up to recently, the hotel was owned by the Gilhooly family who over the years developed the hotel to its current standard. In 1991 they decided to replace the old nine-hole course with the now splendid 18-hole parkland championship layout which surrounds the hotel.
It has been the chosen venue for regional PGA events in the past and is still home to the PGA Irish Assistance Championship and Pro-Am.
If your golf is a little rusty after the lockdown, lessons are available from the course manager and resident professional Bobby Fallon.
The hotel also has a heated swimming pool, gym, and spa area for those who enjoy leisure, exercise and relaxation.
When you’re done with the golf and leisure it’s a must to sample the excellent foods and wine presented by recently appointed and well-known chef Karl Breen.
The Nuremore Golf and Country Club is only 97km from Dublin and Belfast and is well worth a visit.
