South West Ireland Golf Tours

The beach-lined shores that overlook the Atlantic Ocean entice you to experience the coastline golf courses that South West Ireland has to offer. As part of your South West Ireland Tour head to County Kerry and take a scenic drive around the Ring of Kerry, which is adorned with sparkling water, postcard-worthy landscapes, and grazing livestock.

A golf tour around South West Ireland offers an opportunity to tee off on some of Ireland’s best golf courses – including Lahinch, County Kerry’s Tralee Links, Ballybunion, Waterville, and the iconic Old Head. Dromoland Castle hosted the Women’s Irish Open in 2022, and the 2027 Ryder Cup will be held at the famed 5-star Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Club in Limerick.

South West Ireland represents the very best of the Irish countryside and the metropolitan hub of Southern Ireland. Ireland’s second-largest city Cork has been labeled as the ‘culinary capital’ of Ireland and is home to the 18th-century English Market, as well as numerous places to eat and drink. Premier Golf’s office located in Killarney ensures our team is on the ground and able to assist on your tour.

Allan’s Tip

While Killarney has many, many great pubs, The Speakeasy is a gem, tiny and full of locals you are as likely to get a good tip for a horse as a pint in there and with a bookies across the street you can (legally) act on this, if you are brave enough!
