Marathon Golf Ireland…

Certainly, playing 36 holes a day for four days is tough going on your body! May I ask you, do you think you could manage to play 18 golf courses in 9 days straight? Well, recently I arranged the following Irish Golf Vacation for a father and son! Please, take a look at the following Marathon golf itinerary. What is truly amazing, besides that the guys played a lot of really nice golf courses. Is that, they played golf at the most northern point at Ballyliffin and one of the most southern points to play golf in Ireland at Old Head or Waterville Golf Links.  Consequently, they passed by both the starting and finishing points along the Wild Atlantic Way, located in Donegal and by Kinsale in Cork.

The Golf Courses:

Day 1 Portmarnock Golf Club The Island Golf Club
Day 2 Ardgalss Golf Club Royal County Down Golf Club
Day 3 Portstewart Golf Club Ballyliffin Golf Club
Day 4 Lahinch Golf Club Trump Doonbeg Golf Resort
Day 5 Killarney Golf & Fishing, Killeen Course Dooks Golf Club
Day 6 Waterville Golf Links Tralee Golf Club
Day 7 Cork Golf Club Old Head Golf Links
Day 8 Mount Juliet Golf Resort The K-Club
Day 9 The European Club Druids Glen Golf Resort

The Accommodation

Hotels Standards
Night 1 Co. Down | Slieve Donard Hotel Hotel 4*
Night 2 Portrush | Bushmills Inn Hotel 4*
Night 3 & 4 Doonbeg | Trump Doonbeg (one bedroom suite) Hotel 5*
Night 5 Killarney | The Europe Hotel Hotel 5*
Night 6 Cork | The Radisson Blu Hotel Hotel 4*
Night 7 Kilkenny | Mount Juliet Hotel Hotel 5*
Night 8 Kildare | K-Club Hotel Hotel 5*
Night 9 Dublin | The Gibson Hotel Hotel 4*

Additionally, by using google maps, I am guessing the guys spend approximately, 31 hours driving and covered over 2,002 kilometres behind the wheel.  Notwithstanding all the great Irish Links Golf courses played. A number of highlights are certainly worth mentioning. The beds at Trump Doonbeg topped the hotel comfortability list and the hardest question to answer. What was their favourite course played? Without a doubt, the best course that they played and enjoyed the most was Lahinch Golf Club.

Final Dooley Noted

Notably, the guys packed-in as much golf as possible. Unfortunately, there was not enough room to enjoy more cultural activities. Although, they found their choice of restaurants by asking Irish people about what was their favourite local restaurants. Also, they managed to kiss the Blarney Stone and saw the Giants Causeway along with viewing the Cliffs of Moher.

Moreover, this Irish golf vacation was simply two golfers playing golf from dawn until dusk. From talking with the guys, certainly, they enjoyed what they experienced and how they discovered Ireland. Marathon Golf is golf packed that may not be for everyone, however, why not…
