Lee (and Halcyon) were super easy to work with, planned our trip to a tee and, we’re always accessible when we needed them. I highly recommend them if you are planning a golf trip to Scotland.

Visited England for the first time in my life with two of my best friends and had the greatest golf trip ever. We were able to play six rounds of golf spread over a seven day span at arguably six of the best golf courses in England, Royal Birkdale, Royal Lytham, Royal Liverpool, Walton Heath (Old), Sunningdale (Old) and Royal St. George's. Thanks to Halcyon Golf Travel for securing our tee times and awesome hotel accommodations for a ten night stay split between the Malmaison Liverpool and Bloomsbury Hotel in London. The icing on the cake had to be when Jack Sallis joined us for golf on our first round of our trip, played at Royal Birkdale. His golf tips and various golf and non-golf related stories were very helpful and entertaining. If you are considering a golf trip to England, Scotland or Ireland you should definitely contact Halcyon Golf Travel for their expertise in planning the perfect golf trip!

We have taken golfing excursions to Scotland and Ireland, but our week in England playing its top courses was equally if not more memorable than any. Halcyon made it an easy, thoughtless trip for us. It was well-organized and perfectly scheduled, the latter something you do not appreciate until, for a couple of many examples, you are driving contra-flow at a time of day that works out so well or able to get a little more sleep one morning after a long day. We even got restaurant recommendations from Jack! I would highly recommend Halcyon for any of your British Isle trips. We plan to start all over again with Scotland in the near future!

Lee and Jack at Halcyon made for a truly epic golf trip to Scotland (Fife and East Lothians). As someone who has typically planned trips myself I did question the use of a third party initially but by the end of the trip I am already thinking about my next trip with these guys! Some highlights: - Very clear agendas and transport timing - Transport always on time and were able to pivot if we needed to change plans. Drivers very personable and friendly - Lee was available on what’s app and given most trips to St Andrews involve ballot attempts for the old course he was available at an instant to modify tee times and shift the schedule - Provided access to Rusacks Hotel which had limited availability to the public Lee personally came up from his home in England and spent the night with us in St Andrews and walked the course at Kingsbarns. Very personal touch and not expected. He was very vested in us having a great trip and nothing came off transactional. Between not having to book any tee times myself and having seamless transport using Halcyon was worth it alone. The courses can be far apart and having on time transport was a key benefit I overlooked. Add in the local recommendations on dining, which courses to play, and extensive organization (using gsheets) is what created a special experience. The money spent was more than made up for by the world class experience! Best golf trip of all time.

Jack and his team were exceptional! He was there for our entire trip, both in Northern Ireland and in the South. Couldn't have asked for a more memorable golf trip. Thanks Jack and Halcyon Golf Travel!

My recent experience with Halcyon Golf Travel was first rate! From the very beginning of booking the trip, Jack and Lee were both informative and highly responsive. Any question I had was answered within 24 hours, and the materials supplied gave me great confidence long before my trip began. Upon arrival, Lee reached out to insure everything was to our satisfaction and to see if any additional assistance was necessary. The hotel they arranged was clean, comfortable, and very close to the St. Andrews golf courses. It also provided a substantial breakfast--a great way to start the day. They booked early tee times on a variety of courses, which allowed us to also book afternoon tee times. There was no shortage of great golf. The restaurant recommendations were spot on, so we could choose quality experiences from pub food to high-end dining. The arrangement for dinner at 18 in Rusacks Hotel provided an incredible and memorable event. To anyone considering a travel golf holiday in Scotland, Ireland, and/or England, I would strongly recommend using Halcyon Golf Travel services.

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…

Freedom

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.
