Golfing in Ireland
Ireland offers golfers the complete package with top championship courses, stunning scenery, fascinating history, and some of the best “craic” (good fun) around.
From ancient Neolithic monuments to 20th century troubles, Ireland enjoys a rich heritage and an exceptionally compelling history.
Only in Ireland!
The sand dunes at Castlerock Golf Club in County Londonderry were inhibited during the Neolithic and early Bronze Ages, and the links is protected under the Historic Monuments Act. How’s that for a slice of history while you play your round? No matter where you go in this fascinating land, you’ll come face to face with some aspect of Ireland’s history and heritage, which dates back to around 7000 BC.
Ireland is one of the world’s leading destinations for golf. A golfing trip to the Emerald Isle will not only convince you of Ireland’s golf pedigree, it will also challenge any perceptions you had about the quality of the great game in Ireland. With over 400 golf clubs including a third of the world’s natural links courses and a slew of exceptional championships courses in spectacular locations, it’s no wonder that Ireland attracts over 240,000 golfers from all over the globe each year. This year, why not join them?
After you’ve worked up an appetite on the course, treat your taste buds to some exceptional Irish cuisine, from seaside pub food to fine-dining delights.
The Emerald Isle has become one of Europe’s top places to enjoy spectacular food. Many of Ireland’s top golf resorts are also home to some of the country’s top fine-dining spots, so make sure to sample some of the top cuisine that makes the country a favorite amongst the food cognoscenti. With wonderfully fresh seafood, excellent local ingredients, Michelin-starred restaurants, and the internationally acclaimed gourmet county of Cork, Ireland is a top destination for food lovers.
The Irish 19th
From traditional old pubs in secluded villages to the golfer’s clubhouse perched on high mountains, the Irish know how to enjoy themselves.
Walk into any pub and you won’t hear the sounds of slot machines or overbearing music, you’re more likely to be greeted with a busy hum of chat, the crackling of real fires, and the clinking of pints. Part of the pleasure of golfing in Ireland is being able to enjoy a warm welcome and the legendary “craic” (good fun).
