Dear Ruairi,

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our golf vacation in Ireland.  The trip was well planned and all of the little things you added like meeting your representative  at the airport and getting the GPS for the trip were spot on. The accommodation were also very nice and the golf (despite some rain) super.  I will certainly recommend you to others, thanks for making this a great experience.

Kind regards,

Hi Ruairi,

Many thanks from the four of us for organizing a wonderful holiday in Ireland.

The hotels were all wonderful, and so were the golf courses. All in all, the trip went without a hitch and we are already looking forward to returning. We will certainly recommend your company to all our friends back in Australia and we wish you all the very best.

Ruairi and Team,

I wanted to send a thank you for everything you did for us during our trip. It was absolutely amazing in every respect, from the programming of the GPS with all of our locations, to knowing exactly which courses to take caddies and which to go at alone. Building in the travel days worked perfectly because we were never rushed and were even able to reschedule the Old Head time, where we played all 18 with no clouds. I think the only way we could have made the trip better was to stay an extra few days. Your country was beyond beautiful, and you have earned a lifelong customer as I hope to be back many more times. Thank you to you and your entire family for their knowledge and hospitality; it made Ireland the best vacation we have ever taken.

The trip was excellent.  Thanks for making all the arrangements.  QC’s and Vaughan were our favorite places to stay.  Would definitely continue to set people up at those places in the future.  The courses were, of course, amazing.

All the best,

I just wanted to say thanks from our whole group!! It was the most incredible trip in a part of the world that is just spectacular!!  The accommodations were excellent, the golf courses breath taking and the weather was perfect! Luck of the Irish on that one!   The bus we had was perfect and Mark our driver went out of his way to make not only the bus rides to the courses and hotels safe and fun, but also managed to show us some incredible landscape sites and some of Irelands long history….Just spectacular!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are already talking about a southern swing in two years!!

Hi Ruairi,

We had a great time and were very fortunate with the weather.  All four days of golf were rain free, in fact we only experienced some light rain in Belfast for a few hours…that was it.   Accommodations were perfect for us, the Merrion and Merchant were easy walking distance to shops, points of interest and restaurants.  Quite frankly the Merchant in Belfast was an extraordinary hotel, far exceeded our expectations and has spoiled us for any future visits, a must now.  The golfing was fantastic, I would have to say Royal Portrush was our favorite, followed by the Island, Port Stewart and European Club.  Next time we will book well in advance to get on Royal County Down, Portmarnock etc…

Thanks again for all your help, we truly enjoyed it and look forward to returning again,

Best regards,

Hi Eamonn,

Just wanted to say Thank You for organizing our group to Ireland! Everything was amazing from accommodations, quality of courses and the bus drivers. It was a trip of life time and the group has already requested a Central & Northern Ireland in the future. The buzz around the club is great considering there was a lot of members sitting on the fence about coming and now wishing they came.

We will be in touch about another trip in the future!!! Have a great winter and holiday season.

We want to thank you for a wonderful golf vacation in SW Ireland.

Your colleague Eileen was very kind to meet us at the airport, review our itinerary, get us to the rental car company, and guide us to Bunratty Castle while we awaited the Andersons arrival. The GPS she loaned us was invaluable. The rental car/van was large but needed as we could not have gotten our clubs and travel cases in anything smaller.

The accommodations were wonderful and the breakfasts superb. The golf courses speak for themselves. We had wonderful weather throughout our stay, so only got to play in “typical Irish golf weather” – mist/rain/wind –  for 9 holes at Lahinch on our last day. The sightseeing recommendations and dinner recommendations were much appreciated.

We appreciate all the help you provided, and couldn’t be happier with the trip.

With appreciation,

We spent 4 wonderful days in Ireland. We enjoyed too much, it was great and thank you so much for your help. Old Course, County Louth and Druids are fantastic golf clubs!!

I will recommend you to any person who wants to come to Ireland.

Best regards!!

I wanted to reach out to tell you about the great time our group had during our golf trip to Ireland this past month.  It couldn’t have been more enjoyable.  The weather, the food, the accommodations and not to mention the golf was fantastic. To top it all off we were lucky enough to have the most hospitable, gracious and outstanding driver Martin Woulfe.  As we toured through the southwest of Ireland, Martin would point out the historical significance of the areas we drove through and stayed at. He would entertain us with jokes and lead us in singing of old Irish songs. All the fellas are still raving about it.  

I would highly recommend Golf Vacations Ireland to all who come to Ireland for golf – especially if you can get “Wolfe” as your driver extraordinaire!!!

Thank You Again – Cheers!
