A West Chester, Pennsylvania couple turns to Golfbreaks.com to schedule a family golf getaway to Ireland they will never forget
(CHARLESTON, SC) — Colin Hanna of West Chester, Penn., enjoys regular golf trips with his wife and son. In the past, they have visited storied domestic destinations such as Bandon Dunes, Kiawah Island, Hilton Head Island, TPC Sawgrass and Myrtle Beach.
But this year, to celebrate their son and his girlfriend both earning their graduate school degrees, the Hanna’s decided to arrange a particularly special trip to Ireland. Hanna and his wife, both consultants, had previously visited the Emerald Isle. This time, Hanna wanted to schedule an Irish trip of a lifetime.
For that, he turned to the international golf travel experts at Golfbreaks.com. Working with one of the company’s numerous, expert travel representatives, Chris Bowles, Hanna booked an expansive tour of Ireland’s wonderful west coast: Venues such as Ballybunion, Killarney, Tralee, Lahinch, Donegal and Old Head and top-shelf accommodations every step of the way.
“The set-up process with Golfbreaks.com was great,” Hanna said. “It was highly personalized, yet totally simple and straightforward. Chris listened attentively to our requirements and delivered just what we wanted, with grace, charm and professionalism.”
Not surprising considering the group’s impressive itinerary, Hanna said there were numerous highlights.
“The truly great links courses, Lahinch and Ballybunion, the overall course beauty of Old Head and Tralee,” Hanna said. “Old Head is in a class by itself. I had seen many, many pictures and a few videos, including an aerial helicopter video of the entire course, but I still wasn’t prepared for the real thing. When I crested the hill on the inward drive and looked down at Old Head for the first time, I had to stop the car and just drink in the view. I was overwhelmed, almost speechless.
Hanna said the factors that made the experience with Golfbreaks.com so pleasurable involved the company’s high degree of customization.
“We had an ambitious agenda and high expectations for both golf and accommodations,” he said. “In all cases, our expectations were not merely met, they were exceeded. We requested all four- and five-star accommodations, which I’m sure was a challenge on its own, and the very best golf courses, with a premium on being scenic. With stays at places like Knockranny, Lough Eske and Killarney Park, the accommodations were genuinely five stars. But the accommodations at Old Head were beyond amazing. The rooms were first rate, and the views beyond compare.”
Hanna added that “without question” he would use Golfbreaks.com again, as well as recommend the company to others.
“This was quite possibly the most perfect golfing vacation we’ve ever enjoyed and yet it was surprisingly reasonable in cost, considering the quality of service, hotel accommodations, and golf arrangements,” Hanna said. “Even the paperwork documentation exceeded anything we’ve ever experienced before. If anyone is considering a truly first-class golf trip, Golfbreaks.com should be the first and probably only tour broker to consider.”
