Why Book Ireland for a Golf Holiday

Golf in Ireland is more popular than people recognise. Home to traditional links and Ryder Cup loops, world-class accommodation, and excellent nightlife, Ireland is the bee's knees. Why not check out the craic?

While Ireland's coastal terrains provide us with over a third of the world's links, don't overlook the many outstanding parkland courses waiting for your blinder of a performance.

The Ireland Golf Experience

Ireland's selection of loops is spot-on. Playing somewhere like the K-Club's Ryder Cup course or the Portmarnock Links is a bucket list experience. Not many get to witness the authenticity of Ireland's famous links, with its earthy terrain and natural hazards.

The experience Ireland provides is superb for mixed-ability groups, meaning that even the duffer of the group can have a crack. Similarly, it's famous for some of the best hotels in Europe, so your hospitality will be a godsend after a long day of competitive golf.

Best Places for an Ireland Golf Holiday

Although Dublin and the surrounding area is the most popular choice, heading to the Northwest coast of Ireland still has excellent courses available. Dublin is favoured as it's less secluded and has a lively nightlife. Either way, you'll have inspiring rounds to choose from.

Top Reasons To Book Golf Holidays in Ireland

Courses

Ireland's coastal sandy soils are famous for a reason. Links provide many challenges that you can't find elsewhere. Travelling to Ireland for golf provides a unique experience like no other worldwide. Tick it off your bucket list!

Nightlife

Ireland's famous pubs, particularly those in Dublin, offer live traditional Irish music and the creamiest pints of Guinness. Otherwise, many other cities boast fantastic live music venues and jam-packed nightclubs. It's suitable nightlife for legends like you.

Restaurants

Whether you're in the Irish capital or elsewhere, Ireland is famous for producing hearty classics and authentic delights that visitors from across the globe enjoy. Why not try an Irish breakfast with white pudding before hitting the loop?

Cities

We'll start with the most popular. Dublin is the top choice due to its culturally rich areas, a superb choice of restaurants, the famous Guinness Factory, Jameson Distillery, and live music venues.

Whether you then decide to visit another city, probably an eastern coastal city for links golf, you'll be able to absorb all of Ireland's vast culture, superb nights out and friendly atmospheres.

Tips for Golf Holidays in Ireland

Weather

Ireland's weather, in general, is similar to England's. The summer months are warmer, and the days are far longer. Create memories with friends over a twilight round on the links fairways as the sun sets over the coast.

Off-season golf in Ireland is still popular, even in the much colder months it's enjoyed by locals and visitors. The true links experience is considering the wind as you play. It doesn't get more authentic than that (no pressure though).

Golf Courses

Selecting the best Irish loop is nearly impossible. Either way, you'll end up playing a round on one of the most authentic links of your life.

Around the area of Dublin, The K-Club (hosted the Ryder Cup) and the Portmarnock Golf Club are recognised among the best in Europe. Staying here guarantees world-class experiences. Other countryside locations have some of the country's best-kept secrets.

Best Time of the Year

It's recommended to visit between May and September if you're looking for peak season. All these courses available are some of Europe's best. Most visitors arrive during these months so that you can experience the liveliness of Irish cities in full swing.

The Team's Opinion

We are big fans of Ireland. The nightlife compliments a day of golf with the group perfectly and who would turn down the opportunity of playing on a links? Expect nothing but challenging courses and memories of a lifetime. Portmarnock has a halfway house serving Guinness. You can't beat a bit of the black stuff to loosen up your shoulders for the back nine. Are we right?

"Groupia are amazing! They took the stress out of me doing everything myself."

"Had a great time and the booking process was easy and straightforward!"

"Would definitely recommend using Groupia to arrange similar events."

"I had a fantastic time booking the weekend away. 10/10 all the way through."

FAQ

While the most popular time to play in Ireland is from May to September, April is also a good shout. April will be warmer than the previous months, but at this point, many grounds are having preparations ahead of peak season.

As the peak season is May through to September, the best month to visit out of the two is May. April is still a great time to visit, but the weather may be more unpredictable than the Summer months. You're guaranteed to experience some of the world's best courses, regardless of the exact month you visit.

For those wishing to visit Ireland on a budget, November to February is best because it's low season. During this time, green fees are cheaper, and hotels and other accommodations are less expensive. Many comforting Irish pubs attract visitors to go during these colder winter months, so you won't be short of activities if you visit during the off-season.
