Day 1: Welcome to Ireland! Arriving into Shannon airport on the west coast, you will be met in arrivals by your charming and always entertaining driver-guide. He will take you south though stunning countryside and past lush green farms to your luxury small guesthouse in the fun town of Kinsale. Recover from your jet-lag with a wander around the fun shops, galleries, pubs and fantastic restaurants in the "Gourmet Capital of Ireland"!
Day 2: Enjoy the famous breakfast at your hotel before perhaps walking out to Charles Fort or taking on the lovely Scilly Walk around the town of Kinsale. After lunch, head out of town 20 minutes to the Old Head peninsula and the iconic Old Head Golf Links. This is a truly breathtaking course in a unique setting surrounded on all sides by 300 foot cliffs.
Day 3: Checking out of Kinsale this morning, we would recommend touring west through the region simply known as West Cork. This is an area famous for picturesque villages, small coves and organic farming and fresh produce. Continue via Bantry (perhaps stopping at the House & Gardens there) and Kenmare before arriving to your family-owned 5-star hotel in the heart of the fun town of Killarney. Check in and do some light sightseeing by foot in the town.
Day 4: Head west from Killarney to the coast outside of the town of Tralee. Tralee has the potential to
be a trip favourite; the back-nine in particular is amazing, but recent upgrades have meant that the front nine (featuring castles and a pretty estuary) is also incredible. Any non-golfers could go with the driver to the eclectic town of Dingle and experience the history, galleries and great food!
Day 5: Today you'll play the best known and most highly revered course in the southwest of Ireland, Ballybunion Golf Club's Old Course. It's a 75 min drive, so non-golfers may like to make the most of their time in Killarney by exploring the towns or taking a "jaunting car" into the nearby National Park.
Day 6: Checking out of Killarney, you'll travel north to the pretty little village of Adare in county Limerick. You'll stop to play the incredible Golf Club at Adare Manor (due to host the 2027 Ryder Cup). Any non-golfers could enjoy some fantastic food in the manor house hotel: how about some Afternoon Tea?! After golf, you'll go a little further north to the wonderful Dromoland Castle Hotel surrounded by ancient oaks, lakes and a lush parkland golf course.
Day 7: Head west to the coast of county Clare today. Play the ancient Lahinch Golf Club, full of weird and wonderful eccentricities that modern course designers would simply laugh at. It's a must-play for any golfer! Nearby of course is the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher. Enjoy an included visit and a fantastic photo-op! Return to your deluxe property this evening and perhaps enjoy a fine dining experience as a fitting trip finale!
Take a scheduled private transfer from your hotel the short journey of 15 mins to Shannon Airport for your return flight/s home. Adjustments can be made to this itinerary should you need to fly in or out of Dublin airport as
opposed to Shannon
