Trump International Golf Links offers views of the Atlantic from 16 of 18 holes, the newly redesigned golf course is a stunning sight to behold. The average time taken for a round of golf is four hours and thirty minutes. Designed with the philosophy of ‘least disturbance’, the most natural route was taken in laying the course out through the sand dunes. As a result, the golf course in Ireland has an unusual combination of five par 3s and five par 5s. The speed and direction of the wind cause consistent daily variations in play.

“Alice arranged a memorable trip for our family in July 2015. We went on a personalized hiking tour of the highest mountains in Ireland which included Carrauntoohil, Mangeton Mountain and the stunning Mount Brandon. We also did an artisan food tour, we went to Gaelic Football game (which was a great experience for my Soccer loving son). Our driver was so funny & clicked with our family perfectly which made the holiday even more special. I just really got the feeling that Alice clicked with our specifications from the get go & I will not book with anyone else for Ireland, she really
is the expert”
