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.
The city itself is a vibrant urban space offering visitors everything they could need. Make sure to visit the elaborate English Market and marvel at the wide selection of unusual food, followed by a tour of the nearby high streets, including the recently redeveloped Saint Patrick’s Street.
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.
The town lies adjacent to the boundary of the National Park on its north-eastern edge. Its name comes from “Chill Airne”, meaning “church of the sloe”, the original site of which is thought to be the location of the present-day St. Mary’s Church of Ireland. The spectacular scenery of the area, particularly the lakes has been the basis of a tourism industry that has been operating in Killarney for at least 200 years.
The most impressive building in the town is the Cathedral, which was designed by Pugin and finally completed in the 1920’s after some eighty years of construction work.
Other popular attractions in the area would be Muckross House is a magnificent Victorian mansion completed in 1843 located close to the eastern shore of Muckross Lake and set beneath the impressive backdrop of Torc and Mangerton Mountains. The Garden’s surrounding the House are famed for their beauty and can be visited at any time.
Close to the House is the Muckross Traditional Farm, a working farm project that has recreated the Irish rural life of the 1930’s, prior to electrification. Another top attraction in the town would be Ross Castle, a restored 15th Century Castle, located on the banks of the Lower Lake. From here you can take a boat tour of the lakes which gives you a unique view of lakeshore and the islands.
The prime attraction for sightseeing in the region is the world renowned Ring of Kerry, with Killarney regarded as the ideal starting point. The Ring is a 79-km-long circular tourist route that you are best to travel clockwise from Killarney. It follows the N71 to Kenmare, then the N70 around the Iveragh Peninsula to Killorglin – passing through Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen, and Glenbeigh – before returning to Killarney via the N72.
