Arrive Shannon Airport where you driver will be waiting or collect your rental car. Drive to Kinsale where you will base for 2 nights. The town is known as the gourmet capital of Ireland so be sure to enjoy some of their excellent seafood.
Play Old Head of Kinsale Golf Links - Perhaps the most unique golf course in the world with 300 foot cliffs surrounding the majority of the course.
Morning drive north west to Tralee in the county of Kerry. Arnold Palmer's only "links" design and what a design it is! Stunning vistas abound at every turn with almost every hole on the course being memorable for years to come. The course is set before some of Ireland’s most spectacular beaches. The back-nine at Tralee is especially brilliant and this course is rightfully one of the must-play options in south west Ireland. After golf, drive south to hot-spot of Killarney for your next 2 nights. Great pubs and restaurants in a scenic lakeside location.
Waterville is located on the southern tip of the Ring of Kerry surrounded by lakes, beaches and mountains sweeping down towards the ocean. The course is a very fair and pure test of links golf. A life sized Payne Stewart is featured at the clubhouse - dedicated to one of the clubs favourite patrons.
If you decide to take a day off golfing today the Ring of Kerry is a popular option for sightseeing. Killarney has so much to offer and without having to drive you can take an amazing boat trip on the lakes and horse & cart ride through the Gap of Dunloe.
Morning drive to Ballybunion to play one of the most famous of all the courses in Ireland. An Irish Open (European Tour) host and a favourite of Tom Watson (he was their Millennial Captain in 2000). Ranked 9th in Golf World's Top 100. After golf, drive northwest to either Adare in Limerick or Newmarket-on-fergus in Clare.
Old Tom Morris (of St. Andrews fame) believed Lahinch would be on a par with the five great Links courses of the United Kingdom. He believed Lahinch was the finest natural course he had seen. Lahinch, because of the Old Tom Morris connection, coupled with the great love for the game in the village, has often been referred to as the "St. Andrews of Ireland“.
Purchased in 2014 by Donald Trump and re-branded as Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland. The course is a very unique golf experience with excellent variety of holes and challenging terrain to test all golfers. The resort is Ireland’s number one links golf resort. Originally this was a Greg Norman design but Mr. Trump appointed Martin Hawtree to make some great improvements when the course changed ownership.
Sightseeing in County Clare and Limerick is plentiful in options. The majestic Cliffs of Moher and The Burren National Park offer excellent walks, light hikes and excellent photo opportunities.
Following an extensive renovation this resort has reopened to a roaring success. Local businessman JP McManus is the new owner whose investment spared no expense and was finished to the finest attention to detail. The golf course which hosted several Irish Opens was redesigned by Tom Fazio with Ireland's first 'SubAir' technology providing excellent putting surfaces year round. The course is rumoured to be the host to the 2026 Ryder Cup.
All good things must come to an end...unfortunately!
