Limerick, Culture Capital & Golf Vacation Ireland base

Golf Vacation Destinations

It’s no secret that when it comes to the world’s most renowned Golf Vacation destinations Ireland is right up there.  This is due to its undoubtedly rich golf heritage in both links and parkland all over the island, as well as an existing tourism infrastructure and culture that makes having your golf vacation here easy and very enjoyable.  Once you’re in Ireland or committed to booking an Irish golf vacation package, some of the world’s finest courses won’t be a secret either as household golf course names like Lahinch, Old Head, Ballybunion, Portrush, Portmarnock, Adare and Doonbeg roll off the tongue, and suggest those iconic images of Atlantic ravaged fairways, and blustered pin flags of the weather elements that add an extra dimension to your golf game and ability.  What is lesser known are the ingredients that lay the foundation for the ideal Irish golf vacation package, and that’s what we are looking at today.

Our clients have long been emphasizing to us that they want to tour and play golf on the traditional links courses in the West of Ireland where they can also absorb the ‘real’ Ireland in terms of her people and the fabled fun and craic. The good news is that this is all possible in the West of Ireland with where Shannon International Airport sits on the Western Corridor Highway, is a stone’s throw from luxurious Castle accommodation at Dromoland and Adare, and is just a drive and a pitch to Doonbeg, Lahinch, Ballybunion and more.  But what is really interesting right now is that Limerick, home to Executive Tours Ireland has just been designated Irish Cultural Capital.  This is an honour for our City and comes off the back of us being European City of Sport in 2012. So if you choose to stay in one of our recommended Limerick Hotels, namely the Savoy Hotel in Limerick City Centre, Dromoland Castle, or Adare Manor, either just a few minutes drive on the Freeway, you will be very close to giving yourself extra special and unique experiences.

Limerick is famous for its dance, sports culture, music and of course its embattled history since its foundation as City in 1197 which is evident at landmarks all around the City, perhaps most so at King Johns Castle.  This 13th Century structure is also home to a Viking settlement excavated in recent times and open to the public.  Just across the river Shannon is the Treaty Stone which is an important landmark in Irish history as it represents the ending of the Williamite war and the Siege of Limerick in 1691. Today, Limerick celebrates its history and culture by boasting a range of museums, Cathedrals and Churches open to the public, outstanding Georgian Architecture and it is of course a walk friendly river side space where you can pass away many leisurely hours sampling local culinary delights, high street retail, independent shops full of handmade crafts and souvenirs.  Home to Irish-American teacher and Pulitzer-Prize winning author of Angela’s Ashes, Frank McCourt, Limerick honours one of its most famous sons with a walk which can easily be arranged for you.  If you need some refreshment after all that, there is a buzzing night time scene here and there are many pubs that have Irish music on 7 nights a week. The extensive Freeway network around the City makes navigation to your golf or site seeing attractions really easy.  This is important because one of the things that separates outstanding Irish Golf Vacation packages from ordinary ones is the amount of time actually spent doing the things you want to do rather than spending unnecessary time in transit.
