Irish Golf Tours 2018

East of Ireland Golf Trips

Everything starts with a search and the following list of courses has been the most requested golf tour locations. The main reasons are that the golfers are starting and fishing in Dublin. Also, there are simply more flights scheduled to and from Dublin airport to various destinations. Other factors are that golfers identify clearly what courses to play and the fun towns in Ireland. Such as Galway, Dublin, Cork and so on. Finally, Concierge Golf works on the 40 hours and more creating the best Popular Irish Golf Tours 2018.

Where to Stay

I would suggest that the group would use a possible three hotels. Starting in Dublin, moving to Belfast and back to Dublin.

Location  ***  Hotel
Dublin  5* The Merrion | Fitzwilliam Hotels
Belfast  5* The Merchant Hotel
Dublin  4* The Gibson | Portmarnock Links Hotel

Where to Dine in Belfast?

Notably, there great restaurants all over town to choose from to suit your tastes and group size. Such as Jame Street South or Michael Deans Meet Le Fish in Belfast. Whereas Dublin Pichet Restaurant, Chapter One, Patrick Guilbaud, Shanahan’s on the Green Restaurant & etc…

Travelling around & What to See?

Certainly, you can self-drive a car rental which helps with sightseeing and driving to see specific places. However, the favourite mode of transport is travelling in a luxury chauffeured bus.  We ensure that each group bus sizes are available to suit all numbers of golfers. However, Concierge Golf recommends that you go for always a larger bus as extra space means extra comfort.


Enjoy a Game of Thrones tours, the Titanic museum experience, Belfast’s Botanic Gardens. Perhaps Head up to Bushmills and enjoy a whiskey tasting. But before the whiskey tasting, why not visit the Giant Causeway, along with Dunluce Castle and more, more!

Visit Dublin:

I am a big fan of Walking tours and yes the feedback that I received from CGI clients is that a walking tour is a great way to get to know a city. The notables are visiting the Guinness Store House, Dublin Castle Tour, Jameson Factory, View the book of Kells at Trinity.

However, there is much more to do and see just outside of Dublin. Circa 40 minutes from Dublin City centre, there is Glendalough the ancient east Monastic settlement that once was. Also, you could consider visiting Newgrange, Trim Castle, Hill of Slane, Bective Abbey all located around the Boyne Valley in neighbouring county Meath.

Where to play the South of Ireland?

Certainly, Hogs Head is one of the new Irish courses to play. A lot of work has been completed to the course previously known as Skellig Bay, located next to Waterville House, Waterville Co. Kerry. It’s more or less a brand new course layout with more holes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and boy they keep that course in good shape. Notably, for the coming golfing season 2018, Hogs Head have two tee times a day available for non-members. Is Hogs Head worth playing? Yes, I say!

Finally, a whole host of restored Irish Heritage buildings to enjoy at the Irish Heritage Centre in Bunratty. Furthermore, not unlike Killarney, there are ancestry centres dotted around Co.

Dooley Noted

Good golf experiences become great golfing expeditions by the method of detailed planning with good customer services. Almost everything that you wish for will go according to plan. However, the weather tends to be the biggest factor that upsets all great plans. Therefore, ensure that part of your services purchases contains a responsive tour operator that can problem-solve effectively. Also, for one night or two, add Galway to the itinerary. Galway is a great town, young, vibrant nightlife and just good fun! Consider the following best Irish Golf Courses, click here to read on.
