Enjoy A Piece of Golfing Heaven in the South West of Ireland
The South West of Ireland is considered by many as the Number 1 golfing destination on the planet — and for a good reason. Four Links Golf Courses are regularly ranked in the world's top 50. The tour also includes a couple of parkland courses to knock your socks off. Relax in luxury at Adare and spend a few nights in the bustling town of Killarney. The South West has it all, scenery, a good social scene, but most of all, superb golf. Take a look at a sample itinerary below.
EAST OF IRELAND
Dublin is in the middle of Ireland's Ancient East. If you want to sample the "Fair City's" delights while visiting 6 Championship links around the city, this is the trip for you.
Royal County Down is voted The Number 1 Golf Course in the world, and Royal Portrush hosted The Open in 2019. Northern Ireland, simply put, is "Golfing Heaven."
SOUTH WEST IRELAND
This has been the world's favorite links golf destination for 30 years. Little Wonder with four courses is regularly listed in the world's top 50 and offers unrivaled hospitality.
Sample Itinerary of South West Ireland Golf Tour
Arrive at Shannon and transfer to the spectacular Adare Manor and Golf Club at Adare. Recently renovated, it has been receiving rave reviews, with many referring to it as "The Augusta of Europe." In all reality, it is nowhere near as undulating as Augusta, but it's a visual treat and the most beautifully presented course in Ireland. After golf, relax in extravagant luxury at Adare Manor.
Often referred to as the St. Andrews of Ireland, Lahinch is widely acknowledged as a must-play on any Golf Trip to Ireland. Home to the annual South of Ireland Amateur Open Championship and a most worthy venue for the Irish Open in 2019, visitors will be able to recognize the stunning beauty of the natural links when watching the Best in the world take on these phenomenal links.
Ballybunion is another legendary golf course in the South West of Ireland. It has 36 holes, and while the Old Course takes all the plaudits, if the Cashen course was situated anywhere else, it would be considered a superb course in its own right. The Old, however, is the star of the show, and with reseeding completed in 2018, course condition is now back to its spectacular best.
Tralee Golf Club is a little younger than some of its neighbors, but it's a testament to its creator, Arnold Palmer, that it quickly established itself alongside Lahinch, Ballybunion, and Waterville as a must on any South West of Ireland itinerary. Simply spectacular, Tralee has several holes that will take your breath away and, like the aforementioned, regularly features in World Top 50 lists.
The Old Head – ironically enough – is a relatively new edition to Ireland's list of "must play" golf courses. A headland golf course with the most spectacular sea vistas, Old Head, has to be seen to be believed. Many groups choose to commute from Killarney on a day trip; however, the suites at Old Head offer clients the opportunity to stay onsite. The nearby town of Kinsale is widely regarded as "The Culinary Capital of Ireland."
Another long-time favorite for golf pilgrims traveling to the South West of Ireland. A favorite destination of American Tour Pros preparing for The Open Championship. The club had a strong affiliation with the late great Payne Stuart and has a statue in his honor at the first tee. Waterville is located alongside the scenic "Ring of Kerry," which is a must-see on any trip to the South West.
There are other superb courses such as Galway Bay, Doonbeg, Dooks, Hogs Head, and Killarney in this region that can be added or used in an alternative itinerary. Departing both Shannon and Dublin airport is particularly convenient for our North American clients as guests can "pre-clear" customs in both these airports, thereby ensuring ease of passage when you touch down home.
The South West offers a huge variety of accommodations. Courses in the North of this region, such as Galway Bay, Lahinch, Doonbeg, and Adare, are easy to commute from Galway Bay, Lahinch, Doonbeg, and Adare commute from Galway, while there are also options close by to all those courses. Further south, Killarney has a wide variety of hotels and is "the place" to stay while commuting to the rest of the courses in the region.
