This family-friendly Ireland Luxury Golf Vacation offers a little bit of everything. Enjoy tee times at some of the best courses in the country alongside unique experiences for the young and old alike. Think: visiting the horses at the National Stud, countryside diversions at iconic castle accommodations, and food and drink tastings from the 16th century. Perfectly balanced, fun for all ages, and exclusive at every turn -- this is your quintessential Irish golf holiday by Ker & Downey.
Begin your Ireland luxury golf vacation in Dublin. From you stylish city center accommodations, set out on a private walking tour of Dublin with a local guide, catered to your interests. You will also receive a private viewing of the Book of Kells before Trinity College opens to the public.
On your third day in Dublin, golfers have a choice of playing one of the following courses in the Dublin area:
- The European, a 20-hole beachside course
- The K-Club, an Arnold Palmer designed course
- Portmarnock, a 203-acre course set on the old Jameson Estate of St. Marnocks
- Royal Dublin, widely accepted as one of the greatest links courses in the world
- The Island Club, featuring the tallest dunes in Ireland
Meanwhile, non-golfers can partake in a private cooking masterclass and sheepdog demonstration in nearby Wicklow. Alternatively, visit Malahide Castle dating back to the 12th century with its beautiful botanic walled garden.
Next on your Irish golf holiday, it's on to Limerick and the majestic Adare Manor. En route, stop at the Irish National Stud & Gardens for an exclusive guided tour and to meet the retired racing champions who live there.
While here, golfers will have a chance to play Lahinch, the Championship Course rated number four in Ireland. Indeed, many of the world’s greatest golfers have played the course, particularly in preparation for the Open Championship.
You will also enjoy a round at Adare Manor itself. The host venue for the 2027 Ryder Cup is masterfully designed, magnificently maintained, and perfectly set within the glorious estate of one of Europe’s most spectacular manor house hotels.
Meanwhile, non-golfers will enjoy a tour, demonstration, and tasting at the famous Burren Smokehouse and Brewery. They will also have the chance to enjoy the many amenities and activities available at Adare Manor, including spa treatments, fishing, archery, gun dog trials, falconry, and clay pigeon shooting.
The highlight of this leg of your Ireland luxury golf vacation, however, is when everyone comes together for a private helicopter flight over the Cliffs of Moher, Galway Bay, and the Aran Islands.
