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.



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.

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.



For your time in Dublin, you will most likely be based in Portmarnock, less than 15km from Dublin City Centre, or in the City Centre itself. This gives you easy access to the abundance of options available to fill your non-golfing time. From the Guinness Storehouse to Kilmainham Gaol, or Dublin Zoo to the National Aquatic Centre, there is something for everybody.

Dublin Zoo is Ireland’s largest and most popular Zoo where you can enjoy and learn about creatures of all shapes and sizes. Dublin Zoo is home to over 400 animals in a safe environment and strives to educate visitors on protection and conversation of its varied and diverse inhabitants.
