Jack was an amazing guy to talk to about our trip - his thoughts and knowledge were excellent. Whilst we have organised our trip ourselves, if you wanted someone knowledgeable and interested to look after you I would start with Jack!

Jack was really helpful in planning our trip to Scotland. Helped to demystify how things work. He is incredibly responsive on email, text, phone,zoom. Would recommend in a heartbeat.
Perfectly organized trip to East Lothian and St Andrews. Jack and the staff at Halcyon are first class. Many operators promote “personal service”. Plan your trip with Halcyon and find out what personal service actually entails. Simply the best. A++

This 2 week England Golf trip with my 2 sons was a trip of a lifetime thanks to Jack & his company Halcyon golf travel. His attention to details is superb! His arrangement of tee times, accommodations, car hire were spot on. I had an initial call with Jack to give him my vision of what I was looking for in this golf trip. Within a few days, he took my vision and made it a reality! Jack is top shelf and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a fantastic hassle free golf trip to some of the most magnificent golf courses in the World! In fact, I have Jack already working on my next golf trip to Scotland & Ireland for 2025.

Halcyon travel is world class. They did an incredible job planning our trip to Scotland a few weeks ago from the courses, hotel accommodations, restaurants, to the transportation. 10/10! If you are looking to book a golf trip to Scotland, Ireland, or England look no further.

Jack planned an unforgettable Scotland golf trip for our group of 8 buddies. Being first-time golfers in Scotland, we relied heavily on Jack's invaluable advice as our objective was to make the most of our time in the country. Our goal was to play as many of the Open courses as possible within our groups budget. His recommendations enabled us to indulge in certain aspects while being mindful of our expenses. An example was playing Trump Turnberry. Jack suggested staying in the cost-effective cottages at Dundonald Links, which then allowed us to allocate more funds towards a stay at the Rusacks Hotel in St. Andrews. This simple piece of advice allowed us to stay within our budget while still enjoying the courses we had set out to play. I think the best way to utilize Jack’s service is to set a budget, a wish list of courses, and a few dates. From there, Jack will take over and set you up with the perfect itinerary. I highly recommend Jack and his service. Michael from Arizona.

11 tips for planning the best Ireland golf vacation

You never know who you could meet in Ireland, leave some time to be spontaneous or just explore the local area. Playing 7 or more days in a row can also be tiring, having a rest day in the middle can improve the final days of your Ireland golf trip.

The best golf trips in Ireland must include at least one day of bad weather for an authentic experience. Just be prepared!

For guaranteed “Craic” and insight into local life, taking a caddy is a great idea. Links courses often require good local knowledge to conquer, so if you’re playing for money a caddy might be a good investment as well as good fun!

“The Republic of Ireland” or just “Ireland” is part of the European union and uses Euros (€). “Northern Ireland” is part of the United Kingdom and uses Pounds (£GBP). 95% of places will take card anyway, but you need cash to pay caddies.

The best golf trips to Ireland start and finish with a trip to the pub. It’s true the Guinness tastes different in Ireland- so pencil in some time to visit some local pubs, chances are you’ll catch some live music as well!

As you enter more rural areas of Ireland, in places the roads become quite primitive. If you’re driving yourself, make sure to plan for extra travel time

The usual time for checking in hotels is 3pm and you cant always rely on an early check in. You can always leave your bags in the hotel and explore, but if budget isn’t an issue booking that extra night can give your trip a more relaxing start

Apps like “Revolut” are cheaper than using your credit card abroad . You’ll only need cash (GBP£/EUR€) for caddies. Avoid using airport currency exchanges.

In the unfortunate event your luggage gets lost by your airline or you have to cancel your trip at the last minute, make you you have adequate insurance in place to ensure a full refund

Mastering the Chip & Run and Texas wedge before your Ireland golf trip will certainly pay its dividends. When the wind blows, controlled punch shots from the fairways and low spinning drives will give you a great advantage over your travel buddies

Ask all your travel buddies to submit some of their favourite tunes and make a playlist to listen to as you drive through Ireland

Hire a "driver guide" for the best Ireland golf trip

A driver guide for your Ireland golf trip is worth every penny, especially if you’re splitting the cost between 4 or more of you. Here’s why…


With a driver guide you can allocate free time in your itinerary to be spontaneous. Leave a day or a few half days to re-visit somewhere you loved, or to explore with the help of a local. Especially if you’ve never been to Ireland before, the chances are you’ll drive past somewhere or see something that intrigues you. Your driver guide can make a detour for you, or take you back when you have some free time.

Extra time

Your driver guide will help you save precious time by knowing the most efficient way to safely navigate the sometimes primitive roads in Ireland.

Locals insight

Learn as you drive about the places you pass and visit, the chances are your driver guide will have a story or two to tell. You’ll also have the benefit of knowing the best pubs to visit, what local food to try (or miss) and other useful information.

Have a care free drink

The last thing you want to do in Ireland is drive drunk. Having the luxury of a driver allows you to enjoy a few pints after a round of golf and then maybe a few more merry ones in the pub afterwards.

Ireland golf course map

To help you visualise a realistic itinerary for your Ireland golf trip, we’ve conveniently flagged all the best courses in Ireland on an interactive google map (Ireland in green). You’ll also see where the airports are and some of our favourite hotels and Irish activities. When you’re on vacation you don’t want to fall into the trap of being “time poor” due to spending too much time travelling (plus the roads can be slow in rural areas). For example, playing Lahinch, Old Head, Royal Portrush and Portmarnock would be a bit if a stretch for a 1 week trip. Depending what courses are at the top of your bucket list, picking your 2 or 3 favourite courses and then looking for other golf courses nearby is a great way to build a time and cost efficient itinerary. Please don’t hesitate to contact us today and a golf travel advisor will be happy to answer any of your questions and help you plan your dream Ireland golf trip itinerary.
