How Much Does A Golf Trip To Ireland Cost?

If you are thinking of taking a golf trip to Ireland sometime soon, one of the big questions you probably have is How Much Does A Golf Trip To Ireland Cost?

The answer depends on so many factors, not least of which is where do you want to play golf on the emerald isle? There are hundreds of good golf courses to choose from. Some are public, some private, some semi-private. But if you want to play the very best golf courses, you will most likely need a member to play with you.

A second question is where do you want to stay? You can choose to stay and play on the same golf course for a week, or get a package deal that allows you to move around and play at a variety of courses. In addition to hotels and resorts, there are plenty of bed and breakfasts to choose from and the people are always friendly.

A third question: Do you want to rent a car and drive yourself? or deal with taxis and buses? In Ireland they drive on the left side of the roads and most intersections are roundabouts which take a bit of getting used to. There are some new motorways but a lot of the roads are small and narrow. It’s easy to get lost.

Golfing in Ireland: Plan your trip well in advance.

There are a lot of moving parts to planning your next golf vacation. Check out these golf travel services for the best golf tour that meets your needs.

  • Don’t forget the airfare to and from Ireland. Some golf packages include airfare, some do not. Aer Lingus fares are constantly changing and traveling in May as we did, is always more expensive.
  • Don’t forget souvenirs, gifts and nitty gritty bits and pieces.

This may seem like a lot to some, but last time I traveled to Ireland with friends, we played at four of the best golf courses in Ireland (see list below this post to read about each course) and got the very best tee times available. Our accommodations were all of the highest quality with every possible need met with great hospitality.
