An Irish golfing vacation is the ideal way to play some of the most famous courses in the world, plus you will be welcomed by the most accommodating people in the world. You may choose to stay in an Irish hotel, guesthouse or even a grand Irish castle. There are golf tour specialists who offer the benefit of their experience. Being avid golfers themselves, they understand what goes into making a great Irish golfing vacation. Only the renowned warmth of Irish hospitality could top off an unforgettable golf vacation in Ireland.

One of Ireland's newest golf resorts is still under construction in Mohill, County Leitrim. The Lough Rynn Castle Resort is in the process of completing its Nick Faldo designed golf resort, with finalization expected in 2008. Located in the rural part of northwestern Ireland, it is surrounded by three lakes and a beautifully restored manor house and estate, which was once the home of the Earls of Leitrim.

Irish golf courses are renowned the world over. Courses like Ballybunion, Old Head of Kinsale & Portmarnock, The K Club and Druid's Glen are why golfers return time after time. Whether you are staying at a resort, a hotel, or B & B in town, undoubtedly you will want to socialize with your companions in the evenings, perhaps by going to many of the fine restaurants or pubs at or near your location.

Getting around Ireland is relatively easy because the roads have been dramatically improved in recent years and golf courses are well sign-posted. For single golfers, couples or small groups, I would recommend a car rental. For larger groups, I would suggest a minibus or full-size touring coach with driver, which, of course, depends on the size of your group.

Why not take the worry and hassle out of organizing your Irish golfing vacation by contacting Travelocity with your golf requirements. Fore!
