Well it's been a while since I've been on here and hope everyone is doing well. It was good to catch up on some of the posts.
Just wanted to share my experience on a trip to Ireland back in May. We booked this 2 years ago, rebooked 4 times and was finally able to go and it didn't disappoint at all. Ireland is truly one of the best countries I've ever visited. The golf courses I got to play were unreal but it's the people and the surrounding that really caught my eyes. Absolutely LOVE everything about Ireland and would go back again in a heart beat.
We flew in Dublin, stayed a night, 4 nights in Tralee and 3 nights in Lahinch. We played Dingle Links, Ballybunion Old course, Tralee, Dooks, Doonbeg and Lahinch. One day we had solid weather, sunny, 60 something degrees with light winds. My buddy actually got a sun burn, who knew of all places you can get burnt in Ireland. And that was it. Rest of the week was cloudy, showers here and there and sustained winds of 25-35 mph. And LOVED IT ALL. We had caddies 4 of the 6 rounds and every caddy we had was unique and just so much fun to be around. Each course was different, each course kicked my butt, each course put a gigantic smile on my face. I LOVED IT! I embraced the challenge and enjoyed every minute of it. It's definitely a different game out there and definitely makes you appreciate the game a heck of a lot more. There is NOTHING in the U.S. that comes close to being a "links" course. NADA.
Here are some pics, I have a ton but some of my favorite ones. HIGHLY recommend going not just for the golf but the people, the culture, the pubs, the live music and I could go on. Just an amazing country...

Wife and I both have Irish fore-bearers. Mixed in golf and Geneology. Was on the west coast for 2 Fridays. Only thing better than golf was the bar hopping on those evenings in small towns. “Everyone” is Irish ️ then. Would love to go back.
