The on-going covid-19 pandemic has caused change and disruption to all our lives. Various short to medium term travel restrictions across the world mean that discerning golfers will not have the opportunity to experience our beautiful golf courses and surrounding sites of the South West of Ireland for the coming months. Despite this setback South West Ireland Golf are working with our many service providers and valued customers each day to come to arrangements that guarantee satisfaction for all concerned. With the help of our member courses we have already been able to move or reschedule tours over the next couple of months to later this year or onto to 2021 while always putting the safety and happiness of our customers first. We are committed to maintaining this same approach which has seen us enjoy 33 distinguished years in business before this pandemic and will hopefully continue to do so long after this testing time has passed.
It may be difficult to look too far forward at this stage, but we are sure there will pent up desires to travel once this episode ends. If you would like the opportunity to take your mind off everything currently taking place and look at planning a trip in 2021 or later while getting immersed in one of the world’s greatest golf destinations, please feel free to contact info@Swinggolfireland.com today and we would be delighted to assist you .
Stay safe and healthy and together we will beat this virus and get back to normality hopefully sooner rather than later.

Reflections on Ireland
We have traveled to many places and had some great times but our recent travels in Ireland far surpass them all! The Irish people- so proud of their country and their heritage; so warm and helpful…. Listening to our story and sharing theirs. So often as we travel and time passes we become weary and tire of being away from home and we are ready to go home- not so with Ireland. Pat said often: “I am not ready for it to be over.”
So many varies sights to see- wonderful small towns such as Macroom, Kenmare, Cobh; stone churches everywhere like the Abby in Adare; castles like the Blarney Castle to visit or just see from a distance; the cliffs of Mohrer and the Burren; the parks of Dublin. Country roads so narrow and yet revealing the Ireland we so wanted to see so much- yes we lost our way and the GPS failed us but in doing so we found ourselves in the Ireland we wanted to see! Trinity College and Kalmahain Gaol, cathedrals from the ages and the many pubs; Guiness, Jamison and the Temple Bar area- all in Dublin. Ross Castle, Killarney National Park, Muckross House, the Ring of Kerry were among the highlights of our stay in Killarney.
Superb accommodations….. Beautiful and tasteful décor, warm gracious staff, great breakfasts added to our daily experience and comfort. Excellent locations near fun things to do and see… The Malton probably the most luxurious hotel we have experienced… Trinity Capital was in the very heart of Dublin and the rainbow on the last day in the Vaughan Lodge in Lahinch capped off a wonderful experience.
Effective scheduling… tee times work well….. Ample drive time from Killarney to the courses- and an American driving on the left side of the highway needed ample time!
Fantastic golf…. Memorable experience…. Breathtaking scenery from each course- either the Irish countryside or the ocean with people having fun in the water. Each hole offered a new challenge and another photo to take! Caddies made the golf experience so much more pleasant- knowledgeable friendly supportive people
Everybody at www.swinggolfireland.com were so kind and patient – answering a myriad of questions about golf, hotels, driving in Ireland, local ground transportation and so many topics. Really a professional group that I would strongly urge anyone travelling to Ireland to seek their assistance- it was like the difference between playing a new course alone stumbling upon the course’s difficulties or having a well experienced caddie to guide you and offer kind assistance that really enhances your game that day- so it is with www.swinggolfireland.com.
While we planned the trip to Ireland with the mindset that this would be a once in a lifetime experience- now having been there I am not sure that will be true.
