I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for a wonderful trip this week. Hotels were great, courses amazing )and we all had a super time. Adare is a new jewel of Ireland and Ballybunion back to its best. Tralee was stunning also.
I will certainly recommend you to anyone who asks me about golfing in Ireland!
Thanks again for the gift also.
Trip was outstanding. Much better than we even expected. Weather, of course, was a major factor
but the golf courses were all in great shape and had spectacular views and scenery especially Old
Head. That one was really unbelievable. Hotels were top notch particularly The Great Southern.
Rooms were beautiful and staff was very accommodating. All the boys are looking for a return
trip, just not sure when the budget and wives will allow. Thanks very much for all your work in
putting this together.
Hi Eileen – first, my apologies for not sending this to you earlier. I had intended to do it immediately upon our return but time sometimes just gets away from us!
On behalf of our entire group, I want to thank you for making this an unforgettable golf adventure / experience. Everything went off exactly as planned. The 4 golf courses we played were fabulous. You and your team did a great job putting this together for us!
Both hotels we stayed at were very nice, and a special shout out to the Manager on duty at the hotel in Lahinch on Friday April 26. That evening the city had a power outage due to Storm Hannah and yet the Manager still managed to have tea, coffee, pastries, etc ready for us at 5;00 AM! His efforts were greatly appreciated by all.
Also, it was very nice getting to meet and spend some time with Brendan after our round at Tralee.
We will make sure to contact SwingGolfIreland if we ever plan another trip, and will be sure to pass your information on to anyone we hear of that is planning a golf trip to Ireland.
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
