The outstanding scenery is as much of a talking point as the quality golf on offer, both are some of the best on the globe, leaving visitors with no choice but to return year after year. Both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland offer a diverse range of courses, from traditional links courses such a Royal County Down and Portmarnock to resort courses like Lough Erne and Fota Island. Chaka Travel can help you design a golf tour to include some of the must-play renowned courses and some excellent hidden gems to create a golf holiday deserving of Ireland’s excellent golfing reputation.

Although Ireland is infamous for its challenging weather there are many days, both in the summer and winter that are perfect for golf. The summer months can see temperatures reach mid to high twenties in many areas.
