With over 450 golf clubs, and 30% of the world's links golf courses, Ireland is a legendary golfing destination. From some of the top championship courses to inland jewels around every corner.
Dublin is a great place to play golf - whether its a short golf break or the start of a longer golf holiday in Ireland - Dublin has over 60 of the finest Irish Golf Courses. They cater for all levels of golf. Across the center you can also play 2 majestic parkland courses - Castle Golf & Country Club and St Anne's Golf Club. A personal favorite would be Castleknock. But lets not forget The Island Golf Club, a classic links course set in a naturally rugged terrain.
One of my favorite golf courses in the region is Arklow Links Golf Course with its great location and welcoming club house. Its comparable to North Berwick, Scotland but a third of the price at 50 Euros. Its a traditional links course at its best. You can also visit Druids Glen IAGTO's 2005 Golf Resort of the Year or try the K Club designed by Arnold Palmer which hosted the Ryder Cuo in 2006.
Ireland enjoys a temperate climate, making golf an ideal past-time for thousands of golfers. Just make sure you pack some waterproofs and be prepared to juggle your layers throughout the day
Getting to Ireland
Ireland is very well connected by air or sea. You can fly to one of the main airports in Cork, Dublin or Shannon from Britain, Europe, and America. Belfast also has great connections. There are also a number of Irish Airlines.
By Sea, there are ferries between Britain and reland - the best of which is perhaps Irish Ferries.
