July 2019 - The 148th Open, Armoy Road Races and #summer

The world’s greatest golfers arrive on our shores for The 148th Open (14th - 21st July) held at Royal Portrush Golf Course. This is a fabulous event and great to see it return to Northern Ireland. Home grown golfers including Rory Mcilroy will be hoping to claim one of golf’s greatest prizes,

Royal Portrush is just 25 minutes from the Dark Hedges, making it an easily visited attraction before, after and during the golf. The Dark Hedges Experience team look forward to welcoming guests that are attending The Open.

July and August are often warmer and drier, with the nights being longer our Experience Centre is open until 5pm. We are fully stocked with Dark Hedges T Shirts, Key rings, Hoodies, Beanies and Sharon Millar Artwork. Grab your Dark Hedges memorabilia.

Another local event kicks off in July will please motorsport fans with the annual Armoy Road Races. These supercharged motorbikes race around the area at incredible speeds. Armoy is just 5 minutes drive from the Dark Hedges.

Please remember you cannot park on the Dark Hedges Road, please park your car inside the Hedges Hotel car park, this is the safest and best place to park your car and walk down the Fairy Trail to the Dark Hedges.

Balinea Road, is a busy highway, look both ways and ensure that you only cross the road when it is safe to do so.

Enjoy your summer vacation.
