Tour Introduction

Drive your ball down some of the most prestigious fairways in Ireland. Explore historic castles and ancient villages, and stay at the most luxurious destinations on the Emerald Isle. Sign on for the Ireland Golf Tour with Teed Up and be swept up in a golf experience unlike any other.

Come and enjoy the perfect mix of playing top-ranked golf courses and being embraced by your Irish hosts with the warmest hospitality at premier accommodation over 11 nights. Whether you are travelling solo, have a group of friends, or want to share a special trip with your partner, this enchanted golf tour will guide you to some of the most scenic locations in Ireland.

You’ll play at seven of Ireland’s top-ranked courses along the way, from Ballybunion’s (ranked No. 7 in Ireland) carpet-like fairways that meander between massive dunes on shores of the Atlantic Ocean, to Lahinch (ranked No. 4 in Ireland) further up the West Coast and often referred to as the St. Andrews of Ireland, and finally the famous Royal County Down in the north-east. Ranked No. 3 in the world and No. 1 in Ireland, many consider this grand Old Tom Morris course at the base of the majestic Mountains of Mourne to be the pinnacle of links golf.

You don’t have to swing a golf stick to have the most memorable tour of Ireland either. Whether it is visiting the medieval Bunratty Castle, getting close to the seals of Kinsale Harbour on a boat tour, or walking along the top of the 200-metre-plus Cliffs of Moher, a full itinerary that takes in many of the Ireland’s best attractions is included for non-golfers.

While you will earn every Guinness on tour, you can rest easy at some of the best accommodation the Emerald Isle has to offer at the end of each fun-filled day. From being pampered at the spa treatments at Fota Island Resort, to Killarney’s elegant Great Southern Hotel with the town’s outstanding restaurants and bars nearby, to Belfast’s luxurious Grand Central Hotel, you will love each stop.
