Golfing In Ireland on a Budget


Golf in Ireland

Golfing In Ireland on a Budget Tips from CarHire.ie, Ireland People love to come to Ireland on a golfing holiday and enjoy some of the finest and most challenging golf courses in the world. Our golf courses offer some of the best scenery and tranquillity to be found on our island.

In Ireland we like to offer our visitors choice. For those working to a budget, you will find homely Bed & Breakfast accommodation and an economical rental car good value. Whereas for those who want to experience a five star holiday, Ireland offers a number of luxurious hotels, championship golf courses and we can offer executive cars for rental.

Bargains can be found if you shop around. Firstly, you will want to organise your accommodation. Bed and Breakfast accommodation, perhaps in a rural setting tends to be cheaper than hotels. If you are on a budget, search thoroughly on Google rather than picking the first B&B you see. Compare prices and try to pick one that is near a good golf course. However, not all B&Bs are of the same quality, so it would be advisable to seek a recommendation, or another assurance of quality. One tip is to look out for a "Bord Failte approved" tag on the accommodation's website — which means it has been approved by the Irish Tourist Board.

Which comes to the next tip - Ireland offers many championship golf courses but is also awash with hundreds of lesser-known courses that are just as good as the more famous courses, where green fees may offer more value.

Again, use the internet to research the golf clubs and the green fees before booking your holiday. Alternatively, email a B&B before booking, and ask them to recommend golf courses in the area. With just an hour or two of research, you will find the golf courses that will meet your budget, without sacrificing the quality or challenge of the golf to be played.

The last tip is that you should rent a car for the week. Low cost car rental from CarHire.ie will allow you to stay in rural accommodation and enjoy the infamous green fields of Ireland, while also providing access to one or more nearby golf clubs and also allowing you to travel to the urban centres at night. For a golfing trip in Ireland prices will vary depending on your particular needs of golf course, accommodation and rental car. But remember with a little research and the help of the internet, an Irish golf trip needn't be beyond your budget.
