Having been redeveloped and reshaped in modern times, Irvine is known as a new town. Yet its history goes back much further than the 20th century: it was even one of the nation’s first capitals in medieval times. Today, you can find its rich heritage in a range of attractions within easy reach of the hotel, from sites like Dundonald Castle and Culzean Castle to museums exploring the region’s maritime, industrial and agricultural past. Ayrshire is perhaps most famous for Robert Burns, whose legacy is alive and well in Irvine, where the poet once lived, as well as in the nearby museum at his birthplace.
The region is home to some of the country’s finest golf courses, including past and future open hosts, while the hotel even has its own 9-hole junior course, placing it among the best hotels for golf breaks in Ayrshire. So before you head out to the likes of Turnberry or Royal Troon, you can use the hotel’s course for a quick practice round.
Whether you spend the day exploring the coast, discovering the culture or playing a round of golf, the hotel offers a comfortable setting where you can truly relax. From enjoying dinner in the brasserie-style restaurant, to having a drink in the casual lounge bar or simply kicking back in one of the comfortable guest rooms, you can truly unwind in style in the four-star Menzies hotel in Irvine.
