Northwest Ireland Adventure

Priced from: $2,650 per golfer, double occupancy.

If you are looking for a true golf adventure, the Northwest of Ireland just might be the golf trip you are looking for. With its rugged and unspoiled lands, this region of Ireland offers something a bit different compared to some of the more traditional locales on the Emerald Isle.

The Northwest of Ireland offers true hidden golf gems, destination worthy courses and incredible properties. While remote in many locations (at times you just might feel like the only travelers around) the travel in this part of the country is certainly worth it as you will get to experience old world Ireland at its best. During our suggested trip you will visit Counties Galway, Mayo, Sligo and Donegal and stay in wonderful accommodations, including Ballynahinch Castle Hotel and Ballyliffin Lodge. The links you will play are Connemara, Westport, Carne, Enniscrone, Rosses Point and Ballyliffin Glashedy (the northernmost course in all of Ireland). This is a great way to experience a different side of Ireland!
