I can speak for the group when I say we had a great time. Of course, the fact that we had super weather may have helped. It rained on the back nine at Lahinch Old, and that was it. As we finished Ballybunion on the last day, it started to rain. Of course, it was dry in the bar!
Eddie Gilbertson, Golf Vacations UK, Sept 2004
Trip could not have been better. Thanks for organizing such a great week. The courses were fantastic and we really lucked out on the weather. I never thought that I would be coming home with a sunburn, although the windburn was expected. Each round topped expectations and we all have a new appreciation for straight shots… (the Irish definition of rough is a lot different than ours). Everything went very smoothly and I would much rather be coming up to 16 on Waterville or flirting with disaster on the 12th at the Old Head than sitting at this desk right now. Thanks again for all your help.

Thanks for organising a wonderful trip to the South West last Aug. We look forward to the same again this year. No golf life is complete without a trip to the South West of Ireland. And while the golf is incredible, the pilgrimage to Ireland is about more than just the golf. Much more. It’s the warmth of the people, the music, the sights and sounds, even the smells. Each year I go to Ireland and its like coming home after a long journey. And I don’t even have one drop of Irish blood in me. Thanks again.
Charlie Rymer, ESPN, Jan 2006
What can I say, Our 13th Year with you proved equally as memorable as all the others. Kicking your butts this year in the Ryder Cup is even sweeter. South West Ireland is like our second home.
Doug Nelson, Sept 2007
Hi all at SWING,
Our trip was fantastic!!! The golf was spectacular! The B&B’s that you recommended were simply unbeatable! Also, thanks for your intervention re the issue we had with our car hire company. Your professionalism certainly helped us out of a hole. However, all in all our level of satisfaction was a 10!I will definitely be using you in the future and recommending you as well!

I got home last night from the most beautiful vacation that I have ever been on. Most Americans have no idea just how beautiful Ireland is and how very kind her people are. I especially enjoyed playing Waterville and Killarney Golf & Fishing Club. The hotels and accommodations were very upscale not to mention the delicious food that we experienced everywhere that we went. Again I want to thank you and the members of SWING Golf Ireland for allowing me and my guest to enjoy such a rare opportunity to play golf in absolute paradise.
Don Carter, USA, Aug 2009
We are just back from our trip to Kerry and wanted to thank you and tell you how thrilled we are with our first experience in Ireland. The golf courses were quite spectacular, especially Ballybunion, Dooks and Waterville. We discovered by chance a 9 hole course close to Tralee called Castlegregory. We played it by sunset and truly loved it! The Guesthouse Lodge was very nice and the change for a hotel at Shanon airport for the last night worked out just fine! I don’t know how much you influenced the weather but we had sunshine every day, which is incredibly lucky! Thank you again for your good advice and organisation for this trip!
Pascale Fregonniere, France, Aug 2010
Our vacation was fabulous! Thank you so much for all your help and efforts. It truly was perfect. We had such a wonderful time exploring and golfing. Ireland is a wonderful country full of exceptionally nice people.
The golf was difficult so the 19th hole was always a priority and never a disappointment. We loved all the lodging. Adare, of course, felt so royal. Mary, at the 19th Lodge was so lovable. The Killarney Lodge had a great location. We should have allowed more time there. The Dylan Hotel was fantastic. I loved the modern decor and very chic feeling. The staff there was incredible!
To attend the Solheim Cup in Ireland was an experience of a lifetime. Congratulations Team Europe! To watch the top 24 Ladies playing golf with their heart and soul for the honor of their country was so exhilarating and inspiring. Both teams were winners! It was a grand way to end our visit to Ireland.
We arrived home exhausted and refreshed at the same time, which further confirmed what a wonderful vacation we had. Once again, Thank you,
Lee Group, US, Sept 2011
It was a pleasure meeting you. We had a wonderful time golfing after Tralee’s trying weather. Tralee is also a beautiful course & we wud hv enjoyed it more if the weather was kinder.
We had better weather in Waterville, Old Head & Ballybunion Old & Cashen. All the courses are beautiful & has it’s own character but Old Head is so scenic, like in a fairy tale island! The weather in all 4 courses was beautiful in the morning.
We cherished the experience of playing in the Irish ever changing weather conditions through out the 18 holes. The Irish countryside is breathtaking & the people are kind, warm & friendly.
I would like to hear from you on other good golf courses & promotion in Ireland. Look forward to checking out your magazine & website when you post “The Malaysian Group”. Tq
Sulaiman Group, Malaysia, Sept 2012
would like to thank you for your effective service. We enjoyed our stay in Ireland very much and the golf on Waterville/Dooks and Tralee was absolutely super. What a nice country and lovely people that made our stay such a success. We will be back in the future and I will get in touch with your organization for bookings
Cats Group, Netherlands, June 2013
Everything went very well in Ireland. We had no problems whatsoever, friendly receptions, trolleys and carts etc. as booked. Course conditions were fine as well. So in short: Beginning with your kind service everything was very good. We’ll certainly come back to you next time we are going to play golf in Ireland.
Konig Group, FIN, July 2014
Please know that we had a great holiday, lovely Hotel and the courses were great. We love Ireland and for us compared to any southern Europe country, it’s the perfect place to play golf and live golf, due to the fact that everybody loves golf.
Venhuizen Party, GR, May 2015
The golf courses were spectacular!!! And the caddies were a huge help and really good guys. The hotels you guys picked were outstanding, and check-ins were a breeze. Breakfast everyday was great, every hotel had a great assortment and a well cooked breakfast. Our driver was just THE BEST!!! All of us felt very safe, he was always early with a big smile on his face, he couldn’t do enough for us. As far as our experience with SWING I hope you guys use this!
Every aspect of our trip was perfect! If your looking for a company to handle a golf trip (we had 12 guys) do not use anyone else! We had guys come in early, and guys leave late, SWING handled everything for everyone PERFECTLY!”
I guess the best compliment you can give a company is ‘would I use SWING again? I wouldn’t call anyone else.’
Baker Party, USA, May 2016
I wanted to contact you to say a big thank you from our group!! We had a fantastic time golfing in the Southwest!! All details were taken care of and we had no unexpected issues…we even enjoyed mostly fantastic weather. I hope to return to golf in Ireland…for now I’ll have so many good memories.
Heidebrecht Party, Canada, October 2017
Dear SWING GOLF,
We had a more than good weekend. The courses are very beautiful and weather was wonderful. I’am sure we will return with you again. Thank you for your assistance !
Reuchlin Party, Netherlands, April 2018
Everyone back home… just wanted to thank you and your staff for putting together such a great trip. From the hotels to courses/caddies and our driver Dan, everything was perfect. The personal touch of meeting with us in Killarney separates SWING Golf from any other tour operator, and the knowledge and communications from Tommy Pierce made me look like a hero… he did all the work!.
Already thinking about a return trip…

Thank you so much for your help with getting this trip together for us. We had a great trip. We only had rain a couple of times and only once, at Ardglass, was it really bad. We only played nine holes there but that was okay as we were jet lagged anyway. The caddies at RCD and Royal Portrush we’re excellent for having to deal with four not so great golfers. They told us we were only the third American group they’d had since the pandemic started. Regarding accommodations, all were really great. We didn’t have any problems finding pubs/restaurants and had a lot of good meals. Anyway, we all enjoyed the trip greatly and thank you again for your help.
Blakely x 4, USA, July 2021
Just finished our golf trip and we had a great time. Thank you very much for all your help with the arrangement over the last couple of years! I will definitely recommend you to friends and will contact you again next time we come to play in this beautiful part of Ireland.
All the best
