Travel Thursdays - Combining Golf and Sightseeing

Volume 122


Ireland Golf

When it comes to planning a golf trip, Ireland is a destination that should be at the top of every golfer's list. The country is renowned for its breathtaking golf courses, stunning landscapes, and warm hospitality. But what if you're not an avid golfer? Don't worry, Ireland has something for everyone, and there are plenty of opportunities to explore the country's attractions beyond the golf courses.

During my own travels in Ireland, I discovered that there is so much more to this beautiful country than just golf. One of the highlights of my trip was visiting the Aran Islands, the last lands to the west before you reach America. These islands have maintained the rich culture and heritage of Irish life and are still Irish speaking to this day. Visiting the majestic Dun Aonghasa Fort on Inis Mor and then taking the ferry back via the Cliffs of Moher makes for a day to remember.

Dublin Ireland

For those who are traveling with golfers but aren't interested in the sport themselves, Ireland has much to offer. One of the great things about golfing in Ireland is the accessibility of the courses to other attractions. Many golf destinations, such as Dublin, are within an hour's drive of remarkable sights and activities. For example, just a short drive from Dublin, you can explore the stunning Wicklow Mountains or visit the ancient monastic settlement of Glendalough. These natural wonders offer a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and provide a chance to connect with Ireland's breathtaking landscapes.

If you're looking to combine golf and sightseeing, Ireland is the perfect destination. Whether you're an avid golfer or a non-golfer accompanying golfing companions, there are endless opportunities to explore the country's cultural, historical, and natural attractions. From the vibrant streets of Dublin to the rugged beauty of the Irish countryside, Ireland has it all.
