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.


Hi there sorry it took a while to get back to you!

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 he 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.”

The golf trip that you organised for us was tremendous and we all considered it to be very good value for money. The choice of hotels was good and arrangements with the golf clubs went without a hitch. The courses were quite magnificent, all in good condition and hospitable & welcoming.  As a party, we consider Ireland very difficult to beat when it comes to a golf trip – hence the reason we came back this year and will probably return next year. Kerry Coaches did a great job with a clean, spacious and comfortable coach, good driving and he kept us well organised in terms of timings and keeping to the schedule. Finally, I’m not sure how much credit you can take for the weather, but that was perfection – dry & blue skies every day in April!!

I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Swing golf to organise your Irish golfing holiday and we will certainly be using Swing golf again for next year’s trip.


For your time in Dublin, you will most likely be based in Portmarnock, less than 15km from Dublin City Centre, or in the City Centre itself. This gives you easy access to the abundance of options available to fill your non-golfing time. From the Guinness Storehouse to Kilmainham Gaol, or Dublin Zoo to the National Aquatic Centre, there is something for everybody.

Dublin Zoo is Ireland’s largest and most popular Zoo where you can enjoy and learn about creatures of all shapes and sizes. Dublin Zoo is home to over 400 animals in a safe environment and strives to educate visitors on protection and conversation of its varied and diverse inhabitants.
