Hi Tommy

Just want to say that you and  all the team at SWING did a great job on our southwest Ireland golf trip.  

Originally planned in 2019 for 2020, the trip finally culminated in 9 rounds in 7 days in July 2022.  SWING did a great job with course selection, tee times, caddies, accommodations, and transportation.  They even dialled in great weather for the trip.   Following on from our golf trip we also had a 10 day couples trip around the Southwest co-orindated by SWING and this was also a resounding succes . 

I have used the team at SWING for previous trips and will use them again.

Hi Tommy,

Just wanted to let you know that everyone had an awesome trip!!  5 Stars!! 

It was great to meet you during the trip thanks for taking the time to do this.   Also thank Brendan for the round of drinks before dinner while we were in Killarney.

The courses were truly amazing (and much harder than in the US). The hotels were great!  Killarney Hotel was a great location! Our driver was great. Very accommodating and friendly.  

My experience of booking with you was very easy and you were responsive to all my questions.   We would definitely use you again!!




Hi Brendan – we have returned home all a bit jaded after a heavy night in Cork which was great craic.

Just to say thank you to Swing Golf and especially Eileen for doing a brilliant job sorting out our week – everything went like clockwork and the boys said it was the best golf trip they have ever been on. Considering the years of golf tours to Europe and America that is some statement.

Thanks to you all and hopefully we can do business again in the near future.

Cork City

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.


For the culturally curious visitor, a visit to Adare Heritage Centre, located in the village centre or Desmond Castle, located on the outskirts of the village, bordering the golf course, are a must. For those seeking more active pass times after their round why not go for a walk through the manicured gardens in the Village centre or try fly fishing in the River Maigue, Archery or Falconry, all of which can be organised through the Manor Reception.

There are 2 excellent dining options at Adare Manor, for those with a taste for fine dining, there is the award-winning Oakroom Restaurant and Cocktail Bar located within the Manor House. For more casual, yet equally delicious, dining option, there is the Carriaghouse Bar & Restaurant, located in the Golf Clubhouse.

In Adare Village, you have a number of boutique cafes and restaurants to whet your appetite, from the Blue Door Restaurant, located in a traditional thatched cottage to 1826 Adare. For “pub grub” you should visit the likes of Aunty Lena’s or Pat Collins Bar, located on the main street in the village
