Lahinch Golf Club
Lahinch Golf Club is a world-renowned links golf course in the village of Lahinch on the northwest coast of County Clare, Ireland. Lahinch’s Old Course has benefited both from the natural characteristics of the terrain and from the genius of distinguished course architects. Founded in 1892 by officials of Limerick Golf Club Alexander W. Shaw and Richard J. Plummer, they laid out an 18-hole course, which has often been described as the “St. Andrew’s” of Ireland.
Ballybunion Golf Club
Ballybunion Golf Club has a secluded location on the southwest coast of Ireland. The course is situated right along the shoreline, providing sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and you will be awoken by the fresh breeze that blows off the ocean. The natural terrain has been well preserved which allows the long grass to grow across the dunes.
In 2015, Golfing Magazine voted The Old Course at Ballybunion the number 1 links course in Ireland and just recently it was rated number 20 in the top 100 Golf Courses of the world.

“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”
