Golf in Ireland – Here’s What’s Happening in 2024

There is so much great golf happening in Ireland this year. We’re delighted to share some exciting events to look forward to, and new ways to get there.

2024 Championship Calendar. Prestigious events at illustrious courses

Travel updates: New routes now available from the US


Stiff Competition and Stunning Courses

Few golfing experiences – apart from a hole-in-one – can match the tension and excitement of following a championship round from the gallery or fairway’s edge. This year, three top tournaments will be taking place on the island of Ireland that are worthy of any bucket list.

Royal County Down

Amgen Irish Open

Royal County Down
11-15 September

The Irish Open consistently attracts one of the largest galleries on the DP World Tour and with a return to Royal County Down for the first time since 2015, this should be a vintage year. The Irish Open always picks the finest venues in Ireland: Portstewart in 2017, Ballyliffin in 2018 and Lahinch in 2019. This will be the fifth time the tournament has been hosted by Royal County Down, a magnificent venue that dates back to 1889. Golf Digest ranks the course as #1 in its Top 100, but who will finish on top in 2024?

Seapoint Golf Links

Irish Legends

Seapoint Golf Links
19-22 June

Most of the over 50s players on the Legends Tour were in their pomp when Seapoint Golf Links opened in 1995. Seapoint’s finest hour has yet to come, however, and the reputation of this east coast par-72 at Termonfeckin Co. Louth is on the steady rise. The Irish Legends is your chance to catch former Ryder Cup, Open Championship and Major winners (as well as sporting personalities and celebrities) enjoying some serious fun.

KPMG Women’s Irish Open

The O’Meara Course at Carton House
29 August – 1 September

The Women’s Irish Open is one of the most highly anticipated events in the Ladies European Tour and the event drew 31,000 spectators in 2023. The ‘back nine’ of summer is the perfect time of year to catch the action on this beautiful course designed by Open and US Masters Champion Mark O’Meara, with the blue cedars, copper beeches, sycamores and pines providing a stunning parkland backdrop.

It’s now even easier to head east

New direct routes added from the US are great news for any golfer hoping to return to the Old Country (or visit for the first time).

Jet Blue will be adding direct flights from Boston and JFK to Dublin from March, while a direct flight from JFK to Edinburgh from May puts you within driving distance (car, that is) from the famous Old Course at St. Andrews or the breezy coastal fairways of Ayrshire.

For those who want the craic to start from the departure lounge, Aer Lingus will be flying from Minneapolis-St Paul to Dublin from April and Denver to Dublin from May, bringing Ireland even closer to golfers throughout the States.
