The island of Ireland is lovingly known as “The Emerald Isle” due to its seemingly endless rolling green landscape, making it one of the most visited countries to play golf in the world.

There is a golf trip in Ireland for every golfer, whether you are a regular Joe or a PGA Professional, there is something to whet all appetites.

South West Ireland

Home to some of the best and world-famous links courses in the world such as Tralee, Waterville, Lahinch, and Old Head the South West of Ireland probably isn’t as well known as the Parkland courses in the east or the links of the North coast, but we promise you’ll be happy with your choice if you visit this area. The region is full of hidden gem links courses and warm Irish hospitality.

Best Golfing Weather

Golfing in Ireland - Weather Guide

Much like Scotland, the best golfing weather in Ireland is between May and September. Pleasant temperatures and long light days in the summer, will ensure that hundreds of golfers will be seen playing right up until the sun sets on the horizon. The sun is never guaranteed of course, but there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing.

Ireland Golf Holidays - Top Tips:

The Luck of the Irish:

As all golfers know, bad shots are never our fault; there is always the unfair bounce, the wind switching direction or some other weird and wonderful excuse, for why your ball ended up nowhere near we were aiming. Very rarely though, sometimes the bounce will work in your favour (ricocheting off a four-leaf clover perhaps?). Golfers search the world for such luck and you might just find that be that incentive that everyone is looking for and a reason to choose Ireland for your next golf holiday (it might be your best chance at a hole-in-one!).

St. Patrick's Day

A day celebrated all over the world, but nobody does it like the Irish. Towns and cities like Killarney, Drogheda, Tralee, Cork and Dublin are well worth a visit on the big day and combined with the low season green fees makes it a great time to visit. 

The Irish Open:

Always one of the most anticipated and well-attended events on the European Tour. The Irish Open tour many courses over the whole island, to showcase the endless championship golf courses that Ireland has to offer. Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell and Paul McGinley are a few of the big names that have hosted the tournament over the years.

Some of the venue courses include…
•    Galgorm
•    Ballyliffin
•    Adare Manor
•    County Louth
•    Lahinch
•    Mount Juliet
