Tralee was an absolute treasure, I was actually born in Tralee and until last year never knew they have such a fantastic course! Killeen at Killarney was fantastic as usual and the weather was beautiful; a wet one at Dooks on our final day but it didn’t dampen the spirits, again the golf course was brilliant. Many thanks for the various options, expediency in response and then the nailing down of the various tee times – it was seamless when we arrived at the courses. Thoroughly excellent experience and will certainly be back!
This is a belated “thank you” for SWING creating a once-in-a-lifetime golf trip to Ireland! As I told you in person at Ballybunion, I wanted to recognise all you did. From providing background information and travel times, to giving solid recommendations about hotels, restaurants, music, and golf, SWING was always there to answer questions or handle “issues.” Working with you was a real pleasure, and it made my job as trip leader much easier.
I’d also like to commend our driver, who added a wonderful dimension to our group. His personality was perfect for my eight golfers. He was informative, completely reliable, and had a great sense of humour. Our trip wouldn’t have been the same without him.
Thanks again for all your assistance with the trip.
Dear SWING Golf Ireland
We are just about to return to Switzerland and I would like to let you know what a fantastic week we spent in Ireland. Your arrangements worked out perfectly and of course the nice weather helped to make it an unforgettable stay.
Than you, Benedikt
As Irelands “second city” there is a vast array of restaurants in Cork to suit all tastes. Anything from casual bar food to fine dining options. Top choices in the city centre would be Market Lane, a popular bistro, The Cornstore, an upscale bar/restaurant, Coqbull, a Steak House and Milano’s Italian Restaurant.
Oliver Plunkett Street has recently been voted the No.1 Street in Ireland and this is where you will find some of the cities top pubs, such as The Oliver Plunkett, The Bróg, The Old Oak and Clancy’s Bar. Other excellent options are found along Washington Street, which houses The Bailey, The Courthouse, Reardens and Preachers, to name a few.
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.
There are 4 different dining options in Dromoland following your round. In the resort, there is a casual bar in the Clubhouse, the slightly more formal Fig Tree Restaurant and the award-winning fine dining option of the Earl of Thomond Restaurant. Close by, at the Inn at Dromoland, there is the amazing new gastropub, Shannigans. For a drink, you also have the option of the atmospheric Cocktail Bar on the Castle grounds.
