Often overlooked by the most discerning golfers the East coast of Ireland offers some of the finest and underrated courses in the country. The Solheim Cup was famously competed at Killeen Castle in 2011. A stunning championship parkland less than an hours’ drive from Dublin, this Jack Nicklaus design is a must play for any golfer visiting Ireland. It does not stop there. The K club, host of the 2006 Ryder Cup is another hour down the road. It now boasts 2 championship tracks and is a must.
Tiger famously trained for the Open Championship with Mark O’Meara at the European Club on the Wicklow Coast. Arguably the most challenging links in the country. Over the mountains to Kilkenny you will find the famous Mount Juliet parkland. This is all before even a mention of the sublime Druids Glen.
Outside of golf the city of Dublin offers some great nightlife and other attractions such as the Guinness brewery. Kildare offers the countries finest racetracks on the Curragh, Punchestown and Fairyhouse where the Irish Grand national is run annually. Wicklow is known as the garden of Ireland and is one of the most picturesque parts of Ireland.
