Detailed Description

The charming villages and enchanting cliffs of Ireland border the mythological. The friendly people and inspiring coastal dunes create unforgettable moments. Your 8-day Ireland grand golf vacation through Tralee, Kinsale, and Ballybunion places you at the center of the treasured scenery, traversing beachside tufts of grass and undulating dells on the most celebrated golf courses across the country. Each day you will wake up with another magnificent round of golf to look forward to, taking you from the west coast to the south coast, enjoying the variety of courses along the way.

The fun begins with your arrival in Shannon. Your private transfer escorts you to the seaside town of Lahinch where you settle in with your first round at Lahinch Golf Club. The picturesque views of the beach alongside the course set the scene for the remainder of your time in Ireland. The following day you make your way to the nearby Doonbeg Golf Club, designed by renowned Australian golfer Greg Norman. After breakfast, you are escorted to Ballybunion Golf Club, the most visited club in Ireland due to its famous links style and historical connection.

You have the opportunity to play a full 36 holes across the Old Course and Cashen Course if you desire. Later in the day you continue to the Killarney, located in Killarney National Park. An early morning round takes you across the Ring of Kerry to Waterville Golf Club before returning by the scenic route around the captivating lakes district. You wake up with the energy to play a full two courses away from the links-style, encompassing Killeen and Mahony’s Point courses at Killarney Golf and Fishing Club, located in the pristine scenery of the national park.

Outside of Killarney, en route to Kinsale, you will arrive at Tralee Golf Club on the shores of Barrow Bay. The course was overhauled with designs by Arnold Palmer and has claims to being one of the best courses in all of Ireland. Your final tee time takes you to Old Head of Kinsale, situated atop rocky cliffs at the edge of a peninsula that feels more like an island. Your private transfer meets you at the hotel on your final day and escorts you to Cork for your flight home.
