For some golf enthusiasts, there is simply no better place in the world to play golf than Ireland. Her emerald green fields, misty mornings, and rolling moors create challenging and scenic golf courses. Ballybunion, Killareny, Portmarnock: even the names alone are enticing.

Escape to Ireland

There is practically never a bad time to visit Ireland. The temperature rarely falls below 40 degrees or goes above 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Golf courses in Ireland remain open year round. However, to avoid the rainy season and to take advantage of maximal natural light, the best time to visit is from mid-April to mid-October.

A variety of accommodations are available to travelers. From family-run bed and breakfasts to large manor houses, Ireland offers something for every budget. Reserve a rental car and explore the countryside on your own or team up with a professional and let someone else do the driving.

Booking an Irish golf package tour is the easiest way to play Ireland's most famous golf courses. One call can confirm flight arrangements, accommodations, transportation, and golf course tee times. Many tour operators have preferred arrangements with the courses and can often reserve a tee time for you even when the courses are fully booked. Interestingly, a greens fee in Ireland pays for a day's play, not just one round, so savvy golfers will make sure to start early.
