What Makes Golfing in Ireland Special?

Ireland is as welcoming as it is breathtaking. It’s shrouded in history and its myths and legends cast a magical air over the land that offers a unique experience quite like nowhere else.

Not only can you look forward to incredible landscapes and amazing hospitality, you can enjoy a whole host of golf courses, each offering something different. There are options for all abilities, with most of the clubs being open all year round. What’s more, Ireland is steeped in rich golfing history, having previously hosted the Solheim Cup, The Open and the prestigious Ryder Cup in 2006 – there’s plenty to see, do and experience on a golf tour around Ireland.

Ireland’s golfing past is something to be proud of but its tournament hosting is not confined to history, with the Open Championship 2025 and the Ryder Cup 2027 both being hosted there in the coming years. Ireland’s clubs are also critically acclaimed and have the titles to prove it, with Adare Manor having won Golf Resort of the Year for Europe, Middle East & Africa in the International Association of Golf Tour Operators Awards 2022, and Ireland itself having previously won Golf Destination of the Year in the prestigious awards.

Many of Ireland’s golf courses are positioned close together, so we’re able to fit multiple courses into a single day of our Ireland golf package holidays. Booking in the summer months also means that the nights draw in a lot later, and you can enjoy time on the course up to 9pm most days.

The Best Golf in Ireland

There are incredible golf clubs and courses around the entirety of Ireland, alongside plenty of other things to see and do. Each individual region has a selection of beautiful courses just a stone’s throw from one another.

Recommended Golf Courses on the East Coast of Ireland

Near Dublin, golf courses like Portmarnock, K Club, Druids Glen and European Golf Club are top-notch options for your play list.

Recommended Golf Courses in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is home to Royal Portrush (a historic club founded in 1888), Portstewart, Castlerock, and Ardglass courses. Alongside these, there’s the Royal County Down Golf Club, nestled at the foot of the majestic Mourne Mountains, which is not only ranked the top golf course in Ireland, but the top golf course in the world outside of the USA.

Recommended Golf Courses on the North West Coast of Ireland

Among the best golf courses on the north west coast of Ireland are County Sligo, Carne, Enniscrone and Ballyliffin, each with their own unique and beautiful courses. There’s also the magnificent golf resort at Rosapenna, which now boasts three stunning links courses. The newest, St Patrick’s Links, just debuted at No.55 in the latest Golf Digest World Ranking.

Recommended Golf Courses in South West Ireland

South west Ireland has a variety of brilliant courses including Ballybunion, which is considered one of the finest links courses in the world. There’s also Lahinch, Tralee, Waterville and The Old Head, all of which could all be played on the same trip.

With over 400 courses spanning the length and breadth of Ireland, you’re likely to find something new to try around every turn. Ireland is one of a kind and we have no doubt you will want to return time and time again after sampling the golfing delights it has to offer.

Other Reasons to Visit Ireland

There are plenty of other exciting things to see and do that you can fit in around teeing off. Ireland has some of the most beautiful and exciting natural beauty spots, and exploring the Cliffs of Moher and the Ring of Kerry is a must do on any trip.

You can’t visit the Emerald Isle without drinking a pint of Guinness or a glass of Irish Whiskey. Famous for their drinks, you’ll never get a better Irish stout than when you are there yourself, sitting in a quaint pub listening to traditional Irish music and eating local delicacies.

Whatever you do and wherever you stay in Ireland, you’ll make friends and memories that will last a lifetime.
