DAY 3   

An early morning tee time awaits the group today at gorgeous Tralee Golf Club. Designed by the King himself, Arnold Palmer, this seaside Links has some of the best scenery to be found anywhere in Ireland. After Golf, and a hearty lunch with the mandatory pint of Guinness, the group will depart for Dublin, Ireland’s capital city and our base for the next three days.

DAY 4   

Today is a rest day from the Golf course. There are a number of options available to the group today:

  • A transfer to the city centre to explore some of Dublin’s historical sites including Trinity College and the Guinness Storehouse
  • A trip to the All Ireland Football final at nearby Croke Park. This is one of the biggest sporting events in Ireland, played in front of a sell – out 82,000 spectators therefore the ticket prices are not included in the cost of this Tour. If you wish to attend the game, please let us know and we will revert back with the ticket pricing.

DAY 5   

After breakfast, the group will be transferred the short distance to The Royal Dublin Golf Club at nearby Dollymount. One of the oldest Golf clubs in Ireland, this spectacular Links course on the shores of Dublin Bay, was home to legendary Irish Golfer and ten times Ryder Cup team member, Christy O’Connor Senior.


Today’s challenge is one of our favourites here at GolfWild HQ, the Island Golf Club in north County Dublin. A wonderful Links with some great sea views, The Island is home to retired Irish tour professional Philip Walton, who holed the winning putt for Europe at the 1995 Ryder Cup at Oak Hill. Another course that requires your A game we can assure you!


Today’s Golf is right on our doorstep. Attached to the Links Hotel, Portmarnock Links is a Bernhard Langer design that stretches along a wonderful piece of north County Dublin coastline.

DAY 9, 10 and 11

The Ryder Cup is a wonderful three day event which has grown into one of the world’s most watched sporting events. The European team will be looking to avenge their recent defeat in Hazeltine, therefore there should be a really special atmosphere in Paris, as France host the event for the first time. There are two options with regard to accessing this event.

  • Guests can opt for entrance tickets alone, which includes return hotel transfers each day.
