Day 2
Golf at Lahinch Golf Club (Old Course)


Lahinch founded in 1892 is one of the oldest golf clubs in Ireland and the Old Course is one of the most respected links courses in the world. It sits right on the Atlantic coastline on the South West Coast of Ireland in county Clare. Lahinch Golf Club has two courses the Castle Course and the Old Course. The Old Course is frequently referred to as the 'Saint Andrews of Ireland' as it looks out on the ever-changing Atlantic Ocean. It is a classic links course with rolling dunes and fairways and typical Mackenzie greens. There isn't a mundane shot on the entire golf course, and your jaw will often drop at the views. Undulating fairways, heavily guarded greens and blind shots are among Lahinch's challenges.


Day 3
Golf at Ballybunion Golf Club (Old Course)


Ballybunion Old Course is a links course founded in 1893. It is situated just south of the seaside town of Ballybunion in North Kerry. Ballybunion Old is now a legend, receiving almost as many visitors as St Andrews Golf Club in Scotland. The Old Course, consistently ranked as one of the world's top ten courses, features a graveyard by the first tee, which some say is a warning to golfers who breeze through the first five holes only to come face to face with the ever challenging 6th, the fiendish 8th, the daunting par four, 11th and the devilishly tricky 15th. The attractions of Ballybunion are found entirely on the links, as it is the way the links fit so superbly into what nature has provided. After golf, transfer to the 4* Malton Hotel, Killarney for 5 nights inclusive of daily breakfast.

The Malton Hotel has been a favourite in Killarney for over 150 years. This historic hotel is tucked away on six acres of landscaped gardens, fountains and pathways for rambling and is centrally located. The Malton is unique in combining wide open space with the convenience of the town. Every room offers luxury, whether in the Main House, with its high Victorian ceilings and impossibly tall windows, or the newer Garden Wing, for contemporary comfort and style with all the modern amenities. There are many dining options available in this hotel, the Grand Foyer and Coffee Rooms which is a great meeting place offers a daily menu, The Punchbowl Bar offers wine, cocktails and an extensive range of bar food and the Garden Room serving breakfast and dinner every day.

Day 7
Play Tralee Golf Club


Tralee Golf Club founded in 1980 is located 8 miles Northwest of Tralee town. A sensational, Arnold Palmer designed, links course alongside a beautiful rugged coastline where one can see the ocean from every hole and a seascape. It lies on the Southwest coast of Ireland and is one of the world’s most scenic and spectacular true links golf courses. The magnificent beach and surrounds featured prominently in the epic film Ryan's daughter on the gentler outward nine you will negotiate the 6th, 7th and 8th known locally as Palmer's loop. The back nine is a world of extraordinarily wild and massive dunes. The 12th hole is probably the most examining 2nd shot hole in golf where you are faced with a second shot to an elevated green with a deep ravine protecting the green. From the 14th tee there is a breath-taking view of Banna Strand which is renowned in song and story. The downhill, par three, 16th and the doglegged 17th are two more outstanding holes.
