Ireland's Top 30 Links in 5 Years
Bucket lists and rankings - I hate them! The number of enquiries we have received over the years with the golf courses selected being Royal Portrush (in the far north of Ireland), Royal County Down, Portmarnock, Lahinch, Ballybunion and Old Head (as far south as one can go) for good measure! I'll post an itinerary later but suffice to say this requires 6 accommodations, 900 miles (18 hours) on the road and is not my idea of a golf holiday!
