London – December 6, 2022 – Adventurous Journeys (AJ) Capital Partners announced today the acquisition of the Adelphi Portrush Hotel in Portrush, Northern Ireland. The property will join Marine & Lawn Hotels & Resorts, a collection of bespoke hotels located in the world’s most premier golf destinations. The hotel will continue to operate as Adelphi Portrush Hotel in its current condition through the Autumn of 2023, at which time comprehensive guest room and common space renovations will begin. The hotel is expected to relaunch as part of the Marine & Lawn Hotels & Resorts collection in late 2024.
“We’re pleased to welcome Adelphi Portrush Hotel to the Marine & Lawn collection,” said Phillip Allen, President, Marine & Lawn Hotels & Resorts. “The hotel is a fantastic addition to the portfolio, offering travelers premier access to world class golf courses and Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most stunning geological features on earth. The property is a true community gem and will continue to offer both locals and visitors an authentic experience that pays homage to the rich history and rugged beauty of County Antrim and the Causeway Coast. We’re honored to continue to grow our presence in Northern Ireland and thrilled that we’ll have a fully renovated Adelphi Portrush Hotel to showcase when the world of golf once again turns its eyes on Portrush for the 2025 Open Championship.”
Designed by AJ Capital Partners’ in-house design team, the décor throughout the forthcoming reimagined property will embrace the beauty of the region, while paying tribute to the golf prestige and history synonymous with the island of Ireland. Guests can look forward to warm, rich fabrics complemented with textural layering that embodies the spirit of the nearby coast.
Nestled in the heart of Portrush, the hotel is an ideal destination for golfers visiting Royal Portrush Golf Club and is positioned just one hour from Belfast. Royal Portrush previously hosted the 1951 and 2019 Open Championships and was recently announced as host of the 2025 Open. Ranked the eighth best golf course in the world by Golf Digest and the second best on the island of Ireland, Royal Portrush is a classic links course and home to some of the most magnificent ocean views in the game. Portrush is located within a short drive of several other excellent golf courses, as well as key attractions such as the Giant’s Causeway and Bushmills whiskey distillery.
Adelphi Portrush Hotel will be the sixth property in the Marine & Lawn collection, joining Rusacks St Andrews in St Andrews, Scotland; Marine North Berwick in North Berwick, Scotland; Marine Troon in Troon, Scotland; Slieve Donard in Newcastle, County Down in Northern Ireland; and Dornoch Station Hotel in Dornoch, Scotland.
