        From Cork to Galway & everything inbetween

        It’s no surprise that the South West is one of the top destinations for golf in Ireland. It’s not just the championship golf courses on offer that make it so popular, but the wide variety of course layouts in awe-inspiring locations. It is a region filled with lakes, glens, mountains, castle ruins, quaint small villages, and old-fashioned courtesies. Getaway from the hustle and bustle of overcrowded cities and experience life at a slower pace, with world-class golf never too far away.

        What’s more, the hotels are both comfortable and affordable. The area is also rich in prehistoric and early Christian remains, with some of the world’s most spectacular coastal scenery and the country’s best traditional music. Another added bonus throughout the region is the high quality of its natural, locally sourced produce, which is used in restaurants, giving the area a high reputation among foodies.

        Our experts say...

        There’s good reason why SW Ireland is deemed the Emerald Isles’ number one golf destination, with Ballybunion, Waterville, Tralee and Old Head being the big 4 you must play.
