Detailed Description

The link-style golf courses of Ireland create a fascinating retreat for true enthusiasts and challenges for those that crave excitement during their game. Your 8-day tour offers six days of golf and a fascinating immersion into the landscape and ambience shaped by the Atlantic coastline. Discover treasured courses often unnoticed by visitors but celebrated by locals. Follow the fairways played by champions and bask in the secluded ambience of Northern Headlands, Bay Coast, and Cliff Coast of the Wild Atlantic Way.

The golfing adventure begins with your arrival in Dublin. You transfer north to Donegal and spend the remainder of the day exploring or relaxing at your leisure. The North Atlantic Coast feels untouched with miles of pristine beaches and traditional villages providing a warm welcome. Celebrate life and golf with locals by experiencing courses designed over 100 years ago. Donegal, Rosses Point, Enniscrone, and Carne blend the natural undulations and fauna of Northern Ireland’s dramatic features for inspiring fairways and unforgettable greens.

Spend time outside of the clubs exploring towns, villages, ancient ruins, and isolated beaches. The clubs along the Cliff Coast provide views to the complex limestone precipices, crashing ocean waves, and superb panoramas. Visit the Cliffs of Moher or the Bluffs and enjoy coastal towns providing quiet retreats from city life. Indulge in a pub with a pint of Guinness while listening to local folklore and traditional music. When you finish the last 18, you could always extend your Ireland vacation by returning to Dublin, visiting the Southeast shores, or continuing a golf expedition to Scotland for much-needed comparison of the courses.
