Suggested Itinerary:
Day 1: Arrival to Shannon. Meet your driver (we hate to use the word driver, because the gents we use are much more than that) for the 2 hr 15 min transfer to the quaint seaside town of Kinsale. Afternoon, warm-up round of golf at spectacular Old Head Golf Links. Dinner at Jim Edwards, a fine traditional gastro pub, would be an excellent choice for your first night in Ireland. Accommodations: The Trident Hotel, a wonderful four-star property on the waterfront, just minutes from all the great pubs, restaurants and shops of Kinsale.

Day 2: Golf reprised at Old Head Golf Links, perched atop the Old Head Peninsula and most popular with well-traveled course collectors. Afternoon transfer 1 hr 40 min to Killarney. In the evening, perhaps you will wish to enjoy a pub dinner at The Laurels and catch some pints and a traditional Irish music session at Buckley’s Bar in the Arbutus Hotel, Murphys or The Danny Mann. Accommodations: Killarney Park Hotel, an elegant country house style property in a town setting and the only five-star hotel in Killarney
Day 3: Transfer 1 hr 25 min for golf at Waterville Golf Links. Situated just off the Ring of Kerry, Waterville has been an Irish golf mainstay since its founding in 1889; however, a rework has transformed it into a modern masterpiece. In the early evening, relish a private, Irish Whiskey Tasting Experience with Padruig O’Sullivan, to be held at his family-run Beaufort Restaurant and Bar, where you will sample a range of premium whiskeys and learn about the history and methods of Irish Whiskey making. Accommodations: Killarney Park Hotel
Day 4: Transfer 50 min to Tralee Golf Club for morning golf. Tralee is the first European design by Arnold Palmer, and is arguably his finest. Optional afternoon replay (at no charge), depending upon availability and your energy level! Return 50 min to Killarney for the evening. Accommodations: Killarney Park Hotel
Day 5: Depart Killarney. Transfer 1 hr 25 min for 36 holes of golf at Ballybunion on the Old Course, a “must play” for the course collector and the one course that Tom Watson considers the finest in the world, and on the Cashen Course, a fabulous test that is often unfairly overlooked in the shadow of its sibling. After golf, continue 1hr 20min (including the Tarbert Ferry) to Doonbeg. Accommodations: The Lodge at Doonbeg, Doonbeg Resort, the incredible and relatively new seaside resort that is well deserving of rave reviews. Clients lavish praise on this five-star golf resort, which is owned by the folks at Kiawah Island
Day 6: Transfer 30 min for golf at Lahinch/Old Course, another “must play” for the Irish course collector that is so old that it was actually renovated by Alister Mackenzie. In the afternoon, your driver, who hails from West Clare, will show you around. You’ll see the spectacular Cliffs of Kilkee, a scenic wonder on the west coast of Clare, and the grandeur of the Loop Head Drive. We suggest dinner at Darby’s, the on property pub at The Lodge at Doonbeg. Accommodations: The Lodge at Doonbeg
Day 7: Golf at Doonbeg Golf Club, the modern classic designed by Greg Norman. You may wish to take in some afternoon fishing on property or another adventure/cultural group activity on the stunning Clare coastline. In the evening, we suggest dinner at Naughton’s in the quaint Victorian seaside resort town of Kilkee. Accommodations: The Lodge at Doonbeg
Day 8: Farewell to the Emerald Isle. Private transfer 1 hr to Shannon Airport for departure.
