Day 1
Arrive Ireland
Begin your trip with a 2 night stay in the Cork area

Day 2
Play Old Head Course
Old Head incorporates a total of eighteen holes, nine of which play alongside the cliff tops, providing an exhilarating test of golf and concentration for players of all standards and categories. The vagaries of the Atlantic winds will ensure that the course provides a fresh challenge each day.

Blarney Castle:
Visit one of Ireland’s oldest and most historic castles, Blarney Castle, an ancient stronghold of the McCarthy’s, Lords of Muskerry, and one of the strongest fortresses in Munster. Most visitors to Ireland want to kiss the famous Blarney Stone which is traditionally believed to have the power to bestow the gift of eloquence on all those who kiss it.

Day 3
Play Fota Island Course
It would appear that golf was first played at Fota Island as far back as the 1800′s. In 1993, a new course was developed at Fota Island, designed by Irish Ryder Cup star Christy O’Connor Jr. and twice English Amateur Champion Peter McEvoy. The woodlands are cleverly woven into a challenging 72 par course, which is a natural compliment to Old Head. Fota Island has hosted a number of tournaments, including the Irish Club Professional Championship, the Irish PGA Championship, the Irish Open in 2014, and no fewer than three Irish Amateur Opens.

Then you are off for a 2 night stay in historic Waterford, home of Waterford Crystal.

Day 4
Play Waterford Castle Course
A perfect setting for a championship course could not be imagined, even in a country that seems to have been designed by nature for the game of golf. The natural lie of the land has been used to fashion this, Ireland’s first island golf course – every existing hillock, slope and tree plays its part. Each hole offers a different challenge, a change of direction and a captivating view of the surrounding countryside.

Waterford Crystal:
The new House of Waterford Crystal comprises an actual living and breathing crystal factory tour and an opulent retail store housing the largest collection of Waterford Crystal in the world. We suggest taking a guided factory tour, giving you first hand access to all areas of traditional crystal production.

Day 5
Finally, conclude your tour with a 3 night stay in the Dublin area.

Play Portmarnock Championship Course
Host to some of the greatest tournaments in golf, including the Walker Cup , Canada Cup (World Cup), Portmarnock Championship has hosted the Irish Open on 19 occasions, beginning in 1927 when the tournament was first held. This course displays what many consider to be the finest use of bunkering on any course in any country. The 14th and 15th are Portmarnock’s most famous with the former being described as “the best hole in the world” by Sir Henry Cotton.

Day 6
Play The Island Course
The Island Golf Club was among the first twelve Golf Clubs to be founded in Ireland. Enveloped on three sides by the sea, this is a naturally true links course. The 1st, 3rd and 7th are probably the best holes on the outward nine but the most spectacular are to be found on the inward half. The 12th needs an excellent drive while the 13th is a superb par 3 of 220 yards, requiring a long iron or wood shot to reach a naturally well protected green. The par 4 18th offers an excellent challenge with imposing sand hills on both sides.

Guinness Storehouse:
Situated in the heart of old Dublin the Guinness Storehouse is your introduction to the world’s most famous creamy stout.  Established in 1876, the ‘hop store’ has been converted into one of Dublin’s finest venues for historical and cultural exhibitions and events.

Day 7
Play European Club
This links designed by Pat Ruddy offers a rare combination of golf challenges and fantastic scenery as the holes plunge into deep valleys in the sand dunes, run on a sand spit through age old marshlands and along and up into the rugged cliffs of Mizen Head. The 18 hole round is an impressive 7,355 yards long, with two additional par-3 holes playable on most days to round out a great golfing day. The Irish Sea can be seen from every hole on the links and the Wicklow Hills complete the view.
