Feedback is all positive… Great golf courses, great lodging, great bus driver, great aprés golf and most importantly a great bunch of guys to hang out with. An awesome experience!!
Top notch all around…good hotels, good golf. Nothing from a coordinating standpoint that was missed.
I thought all the courses were magnificent and in great shape. The tees times seemed very organized. By this I mean we were expected, welcomed, tee times ran on time and fitted into busy member play. Caddies were overall good. The one I remember most was Jackie – a 13-year-old boy at Dooks. Accommodations were within walking distance of town centre. The quality of the tour bus exceeded expectations. It was very nice. Our guide made it even better and did a terrific job.
We all had an incredible time in Ireland. SWING has been and will continue to be our go-to agency for any golf tour to Ireland.
This group included Colonel David Hunt, author and Fox News Military Analyst and former Maine Governor John Baldacci.
Et everyone enjoyed the trip to SW Ireland.
This group photo was taken on the last day at Tralee, which our group voted as the #1 course we played. Old Head and Ballybunion were very close at #2 and #3. It would have been fine to play any one of those links courses more than once!! I personally REALLY liked Tralee…the course is spectacular and extremely interesting.
You put together a great trip for us. The bus and driver, Eddie Horgan, were excellent. The hotel was very good, everyone liked Killarney, and the courses were great.
Lahinch is a very popular location for our clients, with all of its excellent bars and restaurants located on one street. Top choices for a bite would be VL Restaurant, at Vaughan Lodge, Kettlers and the Corner Stone with Flanagan’s, O’Looney’s and Cooley’s close by for an after dinner pint.
For those looking for activities and sightseeing trips to fit around their golfing schedule, Lahinch is the perfect base of operations for exploring a range of different options. For those interested in continuing their adventures in the great outdoors, Lahinch is home to some of the best surfing schools in the region and is one of the most popular surfing locations in Ireland.
There is an excellent pub scene in Tralee, albeit mainly at the weekends. If you are looking for a traditional night out, with some good music and craic, during the week your best option would be Sean Ógs Pub, at the weekends your options multiply, with the likes of An Teach Beag, The Brogue Inn, Paddy Macs and Bailey’s Corner all providing top live entertainment. If you would like to get your picture taken close to golfing history, a trip to the Castle Bar is a must, there you will see the wedge Tom Watson used to win The Open.
There are some fantastic options for food available, all a short distance from the town centre. Highlights from the list would be D’arcy’s Restaurant, Finnegans Restaurant, The Pikeman Bar and The Stonehouse Restaurant. If you are willing to travel slightly further out of town Spa Seafood, the Westend Restaurant, the Oyster Tavern or Brooks Restaurant are well worth the trip.
Tralee has a multitude of historical statues and monuments to visit, some of which are listed below. The focal point of the town is the beautiful Town Park, 75 acres of green in the middle of bustling streets. The park is basically a monument to the “Rose of Tralee” festival, which takes place annually in August since 1959, housing rose gardens, walkways and fountains to honour those who inspired the festival. Also in the region are the Ashe Memorial Hall, with its medieval experience, Siamsa Tire Theatre, Blennerville Windmill, a restored 18th-century mill & St. Johns Church built in 1854.
