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.
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.
As Irelands “second city” there is a vast array of restaurants in Cork to suit all tastes. Anything from casual bar food to fine dining options. Top choices in the city centre would be Market Lane, a popular bistro, The Cornstore, an upscale bar/restaurant, Coqbull, a Steak House and Milano’s Italian Restaurant.
Oliver Plunkett Street has recently been voted the No.1 Street in Ireland and this is where you will find some of the cities top pubs, such as The Oliver Plunkett, The Bróg, The Old Oak and Clancy’s Bar. Other excellent options are found along Washington Street, which houses The Bailey, The Courthouse, Reardens and Preachers, to name a few.
And for those wishing to absorb the culture of County Cork, make sure to take a trip to the Blarney Castle where you can gain the gift of the gab with a simple kiss upon the Blarney Stone! Animal lovers can also get their fill at the huge Fota Wildlife Park, while history enthusiasts can get lost in the wonder of Cobh Heritage Centre.
One of the most popular attractions in Cork city is Cork City Gaol (Jail), now a unique visitors attraction, this magnificent castle-like building once housed 19th-century prisoners. Visitors get a fascinating insight into day-to-day prison life at a time when the high walls ensured no escape and denied law-abiding citizens the opportunity to see one of the finest examples of Ireland’s architectural heritage.
There are 4 different dining options in Dromoland following your round.
