Away From The Course
With more golf courses than there are days in a year, Ireland is an exciting golfing destination, but this island also has a lot more to offer the visitor. Links Golf is happy to suggest a whole range of touring and sightseeing possibilities to allow you to discover Ireland.
From the National Gallery, Writers’ Museum and Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, to the Ulster Museum and the Titanic Belfast in Belfast, the Ulster American Folk Park on the outskirts of Omagh, and the National Museum of Ireland County Life in County Mayo, there’s a wealth of cultural attractions available, wherever you choose to visit. Cover the rich treasures of Irish history and contemporary art in the collections housed in the many museums and galleries around the country. Music is an especially important part of Irish life and you might like us to include a visit to a traditional music session in a local pub as part of your itinerary.
