Everything that’s great about golf in Ireland.

Tiger Woods did it many times. Bill Clinton did it too. Twitter thinks George Clooney did it.

Rory McIlroy grew up doing it, and in the past, thousands of people have done it with us.

We know you want to do it.

The question is not, will you? The question is, when?

(Or, if you’re lucky, when will you do it again?)

To play golf in Ireland is not just a bucket-list item. It’s a complete bucket-list all on its own.

Even the sounds of the names can set a slow pulse to racing.


Old Head of Kinsale.




Royal County Down.

And that’s only a handful of dozens of world-famous courses situated around Ireland’s 300-mile- high, 150-mile-wide heaven, a small island of saints, scholars, sand-dunes and slaking thirsts with sláintes, where the next course of a lifetime is always just a short drive away.

Welcome to Irish Golf Tours.

We’ve been bringing golfers to Ireland for 30 years. We know what it takes to create the golf experience of a lifetime, every time, for everyone who joins us.

We know what golf tourists want and what they need, and how to give them both.

For everyone, every time.

We’ve been doing this for a long time. And now we’re taking it to a new level.

If you’re planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip with friends for a major celebration and need expert assistance with transport and the best hotels, we’ve got just the thing.

If you’d prefer the freedom to get behind the wheel yourself and make your golf trip part road trip, we’ve got all that for you too.

Since 1993 Irish Golf Tours has been the partner of choice for thousands of golfers, who’ve come from all over the world to taste the unique experience of Ireland’s classic courses.

Over those three decades, technology has transformed the way everyone does everything.

Nothing escapes change. Certainly not golf. From Rangefinders to TrackMan to balls that roll and roll, golfers everywhere know how the game is different now.

And everything has changed.

Except for one thing.

The courses.

The world’s great golf courses were built by people with a vision and the energy to make it happen.

They were built by weather that shaped it as only a God could do.

They were built by time, the slow, steady beat of years, decades, centuries.

Golf’s long past is part of what makes it so special.

Today let’s embrace the future.

In that future, one day you might find yourself standing in a moment of contemplation, facing the light of the sea, offering a quiet word of thanks to someone you’ve never met and never will, but whose legacy is with you nonetheless, those long years of care and cultivation that crafted the course beneath your feet.

This isn’t for all golfers, though.

It’s only for some.

It’s only for those who know that breathing in the quiet echoes of golf’s past in one perfect present moment is a healthy portion of what a good life is all about.

With Irish Golf Tours, you’ll get to experience what this game, and this place, really has to offer.

Golf at its finest, in the terrain where it all started, in a country where every shot is about more, much more, than just the swing of a club or the ink on a card.

Salivate in the south-west swing, from Old Head to Lahinch. Experience the east-coast allure from Portmarnock to Royal County Down. Take in the rugged north of Royal Portrush or Ballyliffin or (some say) the world’s greatest nine-hole course on Cruit Island.

All while knowing that you have the perfect travel partner behind you every step of the way.

Because you’re the one who’ll make it happen.

We’ll just be here to help.

At Irish Golf Tours, you get everything that’s great about Irish golf. Everything.
