Ireland is very popular with golfers, they will tell you that a visit to the ‘The
Emerald Isle’ is like finding a friend for life and the golf is brilliant. The land is
beautiful; the turbulent history stretches back 6000 years and is rich in myths and
legends. The traditions are fascinating, fairs, festivals, music including some odd
instruments, fiercely competitive dancing and joke telling, particularly one-liners.
The Irish also love a good excuse for a party and the pubs are at the heart of Irish
cultural, social and musical life. They are not places just to drink, but to talk,
listen to poetry, traditional music, eat delicious food and of course not forgetting
the Guinness. There is something for everyone, a spectacular coastline with great
beaches, horse racing, fishing, water sports, gastronomic dining opportunities,
historic sites, social history, and traditional crafts such as the world famous
Waterford Crystal. The cities are vibrant and cosmopolitan, not too big but plenty to
see and do.
