    Ireland is split into four main golf regions, which are home to some of the best links and championship courses in the world.

    North & North-East

    The north-east is home to some of the finest golf links courses in Ireland, including Port Stewart, Royal County Down, and Royal Portrush. The stunning coastlines make the north of Ireland the perfect links terrain, so it is no surprise that over the years many world-class courses and hidden gems have been blended seamlessly into the coastline. In 2019, the British Open was held at Royal Portrush, with Irishman Shane Lowry battling his way to victory. The north is steeped in golfing history, but it has so much more to offer than just golf. From visiting the world-famous Giant’s Causeway, to the Game of Thrones experience, the North is a must-visit on your Irish golf tour. 

    South-East & Dublin

    The famous Irish capital, Dublin, is located on the east coast, where there are so many great golf links within touching distance of the city that you will be spoilt for choice. Many revered links courses including Royal Dublin and Portmarnock straddle the south-east coastline. As well as great links courses, there are some fantastic parkland courses, including the K Club, which famously held the Ryder Cup in 2006. There is a great atmosphere in Dublin and many of the quaint pubs are the perfect retreat after a long day battling the links. From the acclaimed Temple Bar, to the Guinness Storehouse, there is plenty to experience.

    West & North-West

    The west is home to hidden gems and punches well above its weight. The region is famed for its natural beauty and this segment of the West Atlantic Way is truly breath-taking. Carne is one of our favourites, and all 27 holes embody what links golf is about. Perched on the north-western tip of County Mayo, the course is surrounded by sculpted dunes over 500 feet high and is a true test for all golfing abilities. While other courses in the north-west may be less famous, there are some real diamonds in the rough, including Rosapenna and Enniscrone, which combine undulating greens, rugged links land, and views of the Atlantic Ocean.

    South-West Ireland

    Regarded by many as the best golfing region in Ireland, the south-west is home to a cluster of impressive links courses, including Waterville, Ballybunion, and Tralee. In addition to great golf courses, the south-west offers fantastic hotels and hospitality. We highly recommend Ashford Castle, Trump International Golf Links, Adare Manor, and The Europe Hotel. For avid links golf fans, the south-west of Ireland is definitely one for your bucket-list.
