 Really just wanted to say THANK YOU for all your help organizing this trip.  My group had an absolute BLAST and there is already talk of returning in 5 years.     I will 100% recommend Swing Golf to anyone who is planning a golf trip to Ireland… Thank you again!!!!!


Good afternoon Eileen,

Just a brief but nonetheless sincere note to say, “Thank You” for your efforts in arranging what was a memorable tour for our SOBBOT Group. That is: Stoke Old Boys ‘n Birds On Tour.

We had a truly super time despite the high winds, which in fairness showed what links golf is all about. Some rain at Ballybunion on Monday proved to be much less than forecasts had led us to expect and although overcast, the weather conditions overall were ideal for golf.

Your restaurant recommendations were excellent and all stood up to expectations. In many ways, it’s a bit like Christmas in that the only clothes that I now have that still fit are my socks!!!!

The Randles Hotel was first class and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff in reception who were so kind and thoughtful in their efforts to help us in our dealings following the loss of my wife’s suitcase en route from Heathrow. 

No doubt we will be once again seeking your services.

Finally and once again, in conclusion, Eileen, many, many thanks for your help and support.


Kind regards,



Good morning Eileen,

we all made it back home in one piece although a little tired. I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your help in making this trip an unbelievable experience. Everything from our hotels and course selections was superb. Our driver was so very helpful with dinner reservations for the group each day and many stories as we drove through little towns.

Everyone in our group had high praise for how well-organized this trip was thanks to you!

I would recommend Swinggolf to anyone in the future.

Thanks again for all your help.

Daniel Plante



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 also an excellent selection of top bars and restaurants to choose from in the town. Top options would include McMunn’s Bar & Restaurant, Strollers Bistros, Kilcooly’s Bar & Restaurant and Daroka. The options vary from traditional “pub grub” to fine dining.

For those looking to dip their toes in the great Atlantic Ocean, the nearby beaches have grown in popularity as surf sites in recent years. Ballybunion beach itself is a popular spot for strolling amongst the locals and, at low tide, tidal caves will become accessible to those looking to explore the hidden coastline. These beaches are also popular amongst equestrian enthusiasts. Indeed, horse riding is a popular option among locals and tourists alike. There are plenty of trekking options available, and if you’d rather not experience the exhilaration of a beach ride, there are plenty of stunning woodland treks to choose from.

In the town itself, the traditional music scene is thriving and the town’s pubs are worth a visit for those looking to explore the best of Irish culture.  As host to the 2006 World Fleadh, the town has a lot to offer. Alternatively, the town’s theater holds performances of traditional Irish dance, music and literature.


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.
