Ireland Golf Tour - 10 nights from $5495 per person twin share

IRELAND WITH ANDREW DADDO
07 – 17 July 2019

Ireland is justifiably famous for a number of things – the people, the scenery and the sights. It’s also one of the world’s leading destinations for golf. A golfing trip to the Emerald Isle will not only convince you of Ireland’s golf pedigree, it will also challenge any perceptions you had about the quality of the great game in Ireland. Internationally, Ireland’s commitment to golf was rewarded with the staging of the Ryder Cup 2006, and was also named International Golf Destination of the Year 2004 by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators. With over 400 golf clubs including a third of the world’s natural links courses, and a slew of exceptional championships courses in spectacular locations, it’s no wonder that Ireland attracts over 240,000 golfers from all over the globe each year.

This year, why not join them…
we have put together a fantastic itinerary for the trip to Ireland and have included Ballybunion as well as established favourites such as Druids Glen, Lahinch & Doonbeg – it`s fair to say this is an amazing itinerary which will test your skills and stimulate your senses!.

Day 2 – Monday, 8th July 2019
After breakfast, we will transfer to the famed K Club (The Ryder Cup Course), home of the 2006
Ryder Cup, for Golf (approx. 30 mins drive). It charms, it entices and invariably, brings out the very
best in your game. It is unlikely that you will be asked to tackle the course from the championship
tees, but this should in no way diminish the excitement of pitting your wits against Arnold Palmer,
for, in a sense, this is precisely what you are about to do. Ranked regularly in the top 3 parkland golf
courses in Ireland, this Arnold Palmer designed golf haven is a must play ‘badge of honour’ that has
hosted the top golf players in the world. Apart from the Ryder Cup in 2006, K Club Ryder Cup course
has also hosted the 2016 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open where we saw Rory McIlroy’s European Tour
Shot of the Year and 11 European Opens testify the importance of The Ryder Cup Course to

Depending on the weather, will depend on which direction you will head as you want a fairly clear
day for the Cliffs of Moher (cloudy is ok but not misty). The Burren means ‘the great rock’ and this
moonscape of karst limestone is a World Heritage Site. Between the cracked limestone that
stretches over 250km, you'll find megalithic tombs older than Egypt’s pyramids as well as abundant
flora and fauna. Burren National Park is a place of tranquility and quiet. There are five marked 
walking trails in the Park that take you through many different fascinating and beautiful habitats,

join in the optional tour today that will take the day to drive around the Ring of Kerry. This is some
of the most beautiful scenery you will find in Ireland. There are so many places to stop and see
along the way. From the dramatic cliffs top views at Glenbeigh, down the coast to the car ferry 
across to Valentina Island, take the drive around this stunning island of spectacular views, up to the
Slate Quarry & Grotto, before heading back to the mainland via Ballinskelligs and stop off in
Waterville or Kenmare for a bite to eat before heading on to the stunning Torc Waterfall which is
well worth the 5 minute walk up to see. It is a beautiful drive and even better if you are lucky
enough to get a sunny day. Then head back to Killarney for a pub dinner and lively music.

Day 10 – Tuesday, 16th July 2019
After breakfast, you will be transferred north again to Ballybunion to play your final round on the
Number 1 Golf Course in Ireland the Old Course at Ballybunion Golf Club. Like The Old Course at St.
Andrew’s, Ballybunion Old Course did not require ‘much correction’ when being prepared for its first
major championship event in 1937 and that nature herself could not be surpassed. That’s the
essence of Ballybunion. It is elemental, natural golf amid dunes beside the ocean where all of the
battles are God-made challenges with nature.
Tee times: TBA
(Please Note that there are no carts available on the Old Course and electric trolleys are limited. Caddies are
highly recommended)
After golf, head back to Killarney. The rest of the afternoon is at your leisure before you all get
together in the evening for a Farewell Dinner.
