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!

The 30 (or more) best Irish links can be played on 5 separate trips - here is how.

Year 1 - Southwest

Ballybunion Old - Ballybunion Cashen - Tralee - Waterville -Dooks - Old Head

Year 2 - North

Royal County Down - Royal Portrush - Portstewart - Castelrock - Ballyliffin Old - Ballyliffin Glashedy

Year 3 - East

Portmarnock - The Island - The European - County Louth - Portmarnock Links - Royal Dublin

Year 4 - West

Lahinch - Doonbeg - Carne (twice) - Enniscrone - Connemara

Year 5 - Northwest

Sandy Hills - Old Tom Morris - Portsalon - Narin & Portnoo - Donegal - County Sligo

Your assistance was greatly appreciated and we will never forget the experience and meeting your was an added bonus. The stay on property at Old Head was exceptional and worth every penny. Please ensure you continue to use Teach de Broc as the hotel of choice for those playing at Ballybunion! The owners there were wonderful people, and the accommodations were great! Anyone wanting to leave the planning details to someone else or don't …
