When the time comes to plan a pilgrimage to one of the world’s great golfing Meccas, award-winning Golfbreaks.com and its local experts save you time and money
(CHARLESTON, SC) — The South West of Ireland became a golfing Mecca decades ago, partly because the Old Course at Ballybunion started being hailed, by Tom Watson among others, as “the finest seaside course in the world;” partly because Waterville and Tralee emerged on the scene, and partly because Ballybunion itself built a second 18 holes in the dunes and now offered what some called: ”The best 36 holes of links golf in the world.”
Not to mention, the Irish may be the world’s most naturally gracious people, full of fun and entertainment — “craic” as they call it — and South West Ireland’s easy atmosphere can have a tonic effect on one’s game. Wherever you go, whether to a highly regarded private golf course, a family-run hotel, or an auto service station, visitors are made to feel welcome. And staying in central locales such as Cork or Killarney, with a driver and easy access to all top courses, simply cannot be topped.
Imagine enjoying an itinerary that included legendary, highly ranked links like Ballybunion, Tralee, Lahinch, Waterville, Dingle and Dooks, with spectacular views, giant dunes and some of the world’s most incredible holes. With plenty of direct flights from the United States to Shannon — and all the courses within a couple of hours of there — it’s easy to see why this corner of the Emerald Isle is so popular.
