Ireland (including Northern Island) has around 500 golf courses to choose to play.  However, the key is to sensibly pick the courses you wish to play and then efficiently play from your various hotel bases.  Choosing golf courses is further complicated by whether you wish to play links or parkland courses and whether you require a motorised cart given many of the leading links courses are strictly walking only.  Also driving around Ireland can be challenging with travel times much longer than expected with frequent hold ups on the country roads.

Our recommended strategy is to stay in the best hotels and look to minimise the number of hotel changes on any golf tour of Ireland.  Given you can only play a fraction of the available golf courses, we recommend a two week golfing holiday around Ireland should be based around the following:

– Fly into Dublin and stay a minimum of 4 nights around Dublin – either base yourselves in Dublin City or at K Club or Carton House. K Club and Carton each have two very good golf courses but none of the courses are links.  While there are over 50 golf courses in and around Dublin, the famous links courses are Portmarnock, Island Club, Royal Dublin and European Club.

– Stay a minimum of 4 nights in Killarney and look to play a selection of the leading local courses including Ballybunion, Tralee, Waterville etc

– Move north to County Sligo, stay 3 or 4 nights and play 3 of the great, but lesser known, links courses in Enniscrone, Carne and Roses Point (Rosses Point).

– Continue north and base yourselves for 3 or 4 nights in Londonderry and look to play a selection from Royal Portrush, Portstewart, Ballyliffin and Castlerock.

– Complete your tour in Belfast and look to schedule a golf game at the incomparable Royal County Down.

We can put together a great tour of Ireland reflective of your timing constraints, budget and course preferences.
