Golfing in Ireland
Ireland is a golfer’s paradise in which Hidden Ireland plays a very special part. Irish golf courses range from the important championship courses, many of international repute like Ballybunnion, the K-Club and Portmarnock, to little known golf courses and links. Indeed it is almost impossible to find anywhere in the country more than a few miles from a golf course.
While it can be difficult and expensive to arrange to play on the better known courses, even when arranged in advance, many smaller courses welcome guests and have ready availability. When booking your holiday or weekend break in one of Hidden Ireland’s private historic country houses, your hosts will be able to advise you on your options.
All Hidden Ireland houses have golf courses practically on their doorsteps and some have a dazzling choice within easy reach. You can stay for a week in a single historic house and play each day on a different course - without ever having to drive for more than forty minutes, even on today’s busy roads.
One of our houses, Hilton Park, outside Clones in the rolling hills of County Monaghan, has a golf course abutting the superb woodland estate and an arrangement which allows their guests to have a round free of charge. Mount Vernon is conveniently located for the famous links at Lahinch and Doonbeg.
Coolclogher enjoys easy access to the world famous golf courses at Waterville, Tralee and Ballybunion. Ballyvolane House is close to two Championship courses; the stunning Old Head of Kinsale and Fota Island.
So if you would like to golf your way around Ireland, look no further than Hidden Ireland’s luxury private country houses, an ideal way to combine a relaxing Irish holiday in wonderful surroundings and with superb food, with some exciting and challenging golf.
