Ireland Vacation

Irish Golf Vacations

Separated from the rest of the UK by the Irish Sea, Ireland’s rugged landscape offers spectacular terrains that contribute to the inherent challenging designs of the top golf courses in Ireland.

Over two thirds of world’s links courses can be found here and the difficulty of golf in Ireland is typically augmented by the rocky cliffs, sandy “links” beaches, rolling hills and constantly changing wind patterns that demand accuracy and precision.

No matter what your skill level, we can help with planning golf vacations in Ireland including;

  • Tailored Ireland golf vacations
  • Inclusive packages
  • And self-drive golf trips
