Dublin & East Ireland Tour

Known for being the birthplace of Guinness, as well as hosting the 2006 Ryder Cup, Dublin has steadily been making its way up the golf tourism ranks. With over 100 golf courses within the County Dublin area, the East Coast of Ireland is definitely a golfing goldmine. Dublin’s nightlife is also the best in Ireland, with busy and popular places such as Temple Bar, and local pubs offering not only Guinness but traditional Irish delicacies such as colcannon and beef stew. Visit the Irish Whiskey Museum or Jameson Distillery for a chance to sample some authentic Irish tipple.

There are many links golf courses on the East Coast of Ireland. Dublin is adjacent to County Kildare, the home of the 5-star K Club, host of the 2006 Ryder Cup, European Open and the Irish Open. The Baltray course in County Louth has also hosted the Irish Open in 2004 and 2009. County Wicklow, a region south of Dublin, is home to the European Golf Club, which boasts a 20-hole course and one of the largest green’s in the world.
