Detailed Itinerary 2022 Ireland Golf Cruise

AUGUST 20, SATURDAY: DUBLIN, IRELAND (EMBARK BY 4:30 PM / IN PORT)

Welcome Cocktails & Briefing this evening.

Port Explorer Guide – Dublin

Overnight: In Port – Dublin, Ireland

AUGUST 21, SUNDAY: DUBLIN, IRELAND (IN PORT / 10:00 PM)

GOLF: Today play Portmarnock Links designed by Bernhard Langer and opened for play in 1995. As a three-time winner of the Irish Open at nearby Portmarnock Golf Club and The Royal Dublin Golf Club it was fitting that Langer chose this magnificent setting to design his first links course set in the grounds of the old Jameson Estate of St. Marnocks. The course has played host to professional and amateur events including the 2008 and 2009 Ladies Irish Open. Note: Golf cart venue.

SIGHTSEEING: This is one of two overnights in port (Belfast is the other) which you will appreciate because there is a lot to do in Dublin. A good place to begin is The National Museum of Ireland on Kildare Street for a well-designed archaeological collection featuring Bronze Age gold jewelry and Viking swords. The stars of the show are the “bog people” — preserved corpses of men who were killed (presumably sacrificed) and tossed into peat bogs during the Iron Age. The preservative qualities are remarkable. Dublin is home to St Patrick’s Cathedral of course but much of Ireland’s history can be read in Christ Church Cathedral, which dates to circa 1030. The medieval crypt is full of treasures plus the belfry tour (11:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.) provides a beautiful view and an up-close look at the flying buttresses, as well as the chance to try bellringing. Dublin’s booming culinary scene is found along Exchequer Street where The Green Hen has won many admirers with its combination of French atmosphere and Franco-Irish cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients. Try the pan-fried duck breast. Finally, while craft beer is certainly the popular new thing, a pint of “the black stuff” is still required drinking on any trip to Dublin. The Guinness Storehouse museum at the St. James’s Gate brewery explains how the stout is made and how to pull a proper pint at the correct 45-degree angle and waiting 119.5 seconds before topping it off. Take it up to the Gravity Bar, where the 360-degree view of Dublin is worth lingering over.

AUGUST 22, MONDAY: BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND (8:00 AM / IN PORT)

Belfast in the early 20th century had the largest and most productive shipyard in the world, gaining global renown with the launch of the RMS Titanic. Located on the slipways where she was built is a stunning new museum, opened in time for the 100th anniversary of Titanic’s only voyage and tragic demise. Today the city and riverfront are undergoing a 21st-century transformation, but many exuberant Victorian and Edwardian buildings still sport the carved heads of kings and queens. As you explore the city, keep an eye out for “the murals.” These somewhat troubling freelance works appearing on building walls provide insight into the period known simply as “The Troubles.”

AUGUST 23, TUESDAY: BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND (IN PORT / 8:00 PM)

GOLF: Today play Royal County Down, located in the town of Newcastle south of Belfast. Consistently ranked among the top 5 courses in the world, this is a true test of links golf set against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne. Host to the 2007 Walker Cup Match featuring a young local by the name of Rory McIlroy, and an all-star USA line-up.

AUGUST 24, WEDNESDAY: LONDONDERRY, NORTHERN IRELAND (8:00 AM / 8:00 PM)

GOLF: Today play Royal Portrush. It holds the distinction of being the only course in Ireland to have hosted The Open which it did in 1951. Royal Portrush returned to The Open rota in 2019 following a 70-year absence. The Dunluce Course is as fine a links as you will find anywhere, with the 5th being a particularly memorable hole to a green hanging on the edge of a cliff. Consistently ranked in the top 20 of the world’s best courses.

SIGHTSEEING: The city of Derry, or Londonderry, is the second-largest in Northern Ireland behind the capital, Belfast. Said to have been founded in the 6th century by Saint Colmcille (or St Columba), Derry was renamed Londonderry in 1613 upon the award of its Royal Charter by King James I. Through the siege of the walled city in 1689 to its key strategic role in World War II, Derry has been influential in the shaping of the world around it. In 2013, it holds the honor of being the UK’s first City of Culture.

AUGUST 25, THURSDAY: DONEGAL (KILLYBEGS), IRELAND (8:00 AM / 6:00 PM)

Described by National Geographic Traveler as the “Coolest Place on the Planet for 2017,” Donegal is a nature lover’s paradise, located at the mouth of River Elke in NW Ireland. Any visit here must include a self-guided tour at Donegal Castle, which was built in the 15th century and is adjacent to the town square, providing convenient access to shopping and dining options. While you are there, pick up a jacket or cap made of Donegal Tweed, hand-woven and unique due to its pattern and heathered effect. Sitting on the outskirts of town, the ruins of The Abbey of the Four Masters overlook the water where the River Elke flows into Donegal Bay. Glenveagh National Park is a lush, green oasis. A few miles north of town admire the majestic cliffs of Sliabh Liag and take a comfortable walk around the scenic and serene Lough Eske.

AUGUST 26, FRIDAY: GALWAY, IRELAND (8:00AM / 8:00PM)

Galway sits on the west coast of Ireland where the River Corrib meets the Atlantic Ocean. Start your day in the town hub of Eyre Square, a public park adjacent to a collection of shops and pubs where traditional Irish folk music provides the soundtrack during the afternoons and evenings. The Galway Cathedral is one of the largest and most impressive buildings in the city. This Roman Catholic church features a mosaic of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. The Spanish Arch, located on the River Corrib, was built in 1584. Those seeking something a little spookier might be interested in the Lynch Memorial Window, wherein 1493 legend has it the town mayor hung his son for murdering a visitor.

AUGUST 27, SATURDAY: FOYNES, IRELAND (7:00 AM / 6:00 PM)

GOLF: Today play The Golf Course at Adare Manor, a Robert Trent Jones Sr original that was renovated by Tom Fazio in 2018. The club will host the Ryder Cup 2026. Each hole could be crowned the feature hole: all have been entirely redesigned and reconstructed with the very latest technology and course innovations, creating a challenging, characterful, and profoundly satisfying playing experience for golfers of every level.

Cared for by an experienced, passionate team of devoted greenkeepers, the condition of this course and its velvet-smooth Pure Distinction bent grass greens is unrivaled.

SIGHTSEEING: Foynes is a tiny village but a major port in County Limerick in Midwest Ireland. While there are less than 1,000 residents, Foynes is home to the Flying Boat & Maritime Museum which features historical archives and interactive exhibits. Tour the only replica B-314 Flying Boat in the world, enjoy a panoramic view in the reinstated control tower and learn about the movie stars and celebrities who spent time here in the 1930s and 1940s.

AUGUST 28, SUNDAY: CORK (COBH), IRELAND (9:00AM / 10:00PM)

GOLF: Today play Fota Island Deerpark Course, located on a 780-acre island in Cork Harbour. Routed through mature woodlands and highlighted by pot bunkers and double greens with undulating slopes. The course was the host venue to the PGA European Tour Irish Open in 2001 and 2002.

SIGHTSEEING: Located on Ireland’s southeast coast in County Cork, the quaint seaside town of Cobh (old Irish for cove) is known for its great maritime heritage and seafaring history. As Ireland’s only dedicated cruise terminal, Cobh was the departure point for 2.5 million of the six million Irish people that immigrated to North America between 1848 and 1950. It remains a popular port of call today for cruise liners from all over the world in part since Cobh was the last port of call for the RMS Titanic. Cobh has remained largely unchanged since that fateful day in 1912 with brightly colored houses along streets that climb to the top of the hill, which is crowned by the imposing Cobh Cathedral, St. Coleman’s Cathedral with its carillon of 47 bells. On the waterfront, there is a statue of Annie Moore who was the first person admitted to the United States through the new immigration center at Ellis Island on January 1, 1892.

The course has played host to professional and amateur events including the 2008 and 2009 Ladies Irish Open. Note: Golf cart venue.

ROYAL COUNTY DOWN GOLF CLUB: NEWCASTLE, NORTHERN IRELAND

Situated in the shadows of the Mourne mountains. A spectacular location and an outstanding links golf course. Royal County Down’s charm lies in the old-fashioned flavor of both the terrain and the layout. A mix of rugged dunes colored by a blend of purple heather and yellow flowering gorse combine to a dramatic effect on what is one of the toughest courses in the British Isles. Venue for the Walker Cup in 2007 and consistently ranked in the top 5 courses in the world.

ROYAL PORTRUSH – DUNLUCE COURSE: PORTRUSH, NORTHERN IRELAND

An outstanding course in a dramatic setting. Royal Portrush holds the distinction of being the only course in Ireland to have hosted The Open, first doing so in 1951, then again when the championship returned in 2019. The Dunluce Course is as fine a links as you will find anywhere, with the 5th being a particularly memorable hole to a green hanging on the edge of a cliff. Consistently ranked in the top 20 of the world’s best courses, nearly every legend of golf has accepted the challenge of Royal Portrush.

ADARE MANOR: ADARE, IRELAND

The Golf Course at Adare Manor, a Robert Trent Jones Sr original that was renovated by Tom Fazio in 2018. The club will host the Ryder Cup 2026.

Cared for by an experienced, passionate team of devoted greenkeepers, the condition of this course and its velvet-smooth Pure Distinction bent grass greens is unrivaled.

FOTA ISLAND: CORK, IRELAND

A past host of the Irish Open and Irish Masters, the Deerpark course is part of 27 holes on this 780-acre estate in Cork County. Wide fairways and light rough are pleasing to the powerful player and the receptive greens provide ample scoring opportunities. Still, water hazards are abundant. The diabolical par-5 No. 10 features a tee shot through a narrow tree-lined opening and a green defended by a lake. The home hole is unforgettable as well, due to a water hazard and multi-tiered green.
