Golf Holidays in Ireland

The island of Ireland is divided into two countries; the southern and northwestern regions constitute the Republic of Ireland, an independent, democratic country. The northeast is Northern Ireland and presently is a part of the United Kingdom. 

Golfing in Ireland is the largest single sporting holiday attraction. It has developed an international reputation making it the most sought after golf destination in Europe. Several new courses have been developed over the past decade.
 Old Head - Kinsale  
There are over 400 golf courses in Ireland, including 50 true Links out of the 151 worldwide. The uniqueness of Ireland’s golf courses encompasses design, challenge, location, and scenery. On a year round basis, golfers can test their skills on the spectacular windswept dunes of championship links, or play on the parkland or tree-lined fairways.

The Atlantic Gulf Stream arrives in April with spring, making fairer weather and better golf. From June to the end of July, daylight extends until 11pm. May, August, and September, daylight is usually from 7am until 8pm. December and January are usually the coldest months. In October and November dusk occurs around 4pm to 5pm. It can rain any time of year. However, it is the rain that keeps the courses lush and beautiful all year round.

The universal language of music is performed in local pubs, large concert halls and on the street with buskers. Anywhere and everywhere there is music, from traditional to contemporary, and rock.

The hospitality of the Irish is unsurpassed. This custom goes back to ancient times the Brehon Laws declared you must share hospitality with the bard or stranger who knocks on your door. The custom is still prevalent in Irish society today. 

 Kilbeggan Whiskey   Drink
In the earliest of times, the Irish enjoyed home brewed beverages. The favorite was Mead, a honey wine that was both potent and delicious.

Whiskey in Ireland dates back to the 12th Century and has been an Irish drink for centuries. It is thought that the Monks brought the distilling techniques from Europe. Kilbeggan Distillery was founded in 1757. Although some whiskeys are stilled made in Ireland, many of the companies are no longer Irish owned.
    Beer is still a favorite beverage for the mass population with the ost popular being Guinness, brewed at St. James Gate, Dublin. It is often said 'the closer you get to Dublin the better the Guinness' and there is probably some truth this.

So, no matter what your preference may be, there is something for almost everyone from a nice cup of tea to a wonderful pint, with some great Irish craic!

So, whether its a Dublin golf weekend, a tour of the South West including all the big name links courses, a relaxing golfing holiday in Donegal, or indeed and luxury golf resort vacation in one of the many award winning Resorts, Ireland has it all.
