NEW Travel Updates

Enjoy all the very best Dublin’s fair city and its beautiful surrounds have to offer with our Eight-Night Authentic Tee Time Golf Tour. On this most coveted of Ireland golf tours, you’ll enjoy a round of golf at no less than five of the best golf courses Ireland’s Ancient East has to offer. In addition to Portmarnock, one of Ireland’s most celebrated golf links, you’ll enjoy a round at Royal Dublin Golf Club, County Louth Golf Club, The European Club in Wicklow, and the Arnold Palmer designed Ryder Cup Course at the K-Club in Kildare. With all courses less than an hour’s drive from Dublin, there’s plenty of time to explore all the very best Ireland’s vibrant capital has to offer. From shopping on Grafton Street to whiskey tasting at the Jameson Distillery, this golf trip of a lifetime truly has something for everyone.

From lush landscapes and beautiful scenery to culture and history in abundance, Ireland vacations truly have it all. The same can be said too for Irish golf tours. While Ireland may be small in stature, some of the best golf links in the world are housed on the island, including the Arnold Palmer designed Ryder Cup Course at the K-Club in Kildare. Located a mere thirty minutes from Dublin, the Ryder Cup Course at the K-Club is celebrated as one of the best courses in Europe, and regularly entertains golf’s greatest superstars. The K-Club has played host to a number of prestigious tournaments, including the Ryder Cup which was held at the K-Club in 2006, and the 2016 Irish Open, which was memorably won by Rory McIlroy.

From culture in abundance, great nightlife, and even better shopping, Dublin really is the city that has it all - and that includes golf! Located just a fifteen-minute drive from Dublin Airport, Portmarnock Golf Club is one of the most celebrated golf links in the country, regularly ranking in Golf Digest Magazine’s top three courses in Ireland. Following your round at Portmarnock, pay a visit to one of the oldest golf courses in the country at the 18-hole Royal Dublin Golf Club. Host to the Irish Open no less than six times, the Royal Dublin Golf Club is uniquely located on an island right in the middle of Dublin Bay.

Other highlights of this Dublin trip include a visit to historic Malahide Castle and entrance to EPIC, the Irish emigration museum, which recently beat Buckingham Palace, the Eiffel Tower and the Colosseum to be named leading tourist attraction in Europe at the 2019 World Travel Awards. You’ll also visit the Guinness Connoisseur Experience, where you’ll learn the six steps involved in pouring the perfect pint. Once you’ve had your fill of Guinness, take a leisurely fifteen-minute stroll through the streets of Dublin to the Jameson Distillery for the whiskey tasting experience of a lifetime.

"Wonderful trip in Iceland"

Paula S.

We had a wonderful trip. The hotels were lovely with excellent restaurants and very attentive staff. The location in Reykjavik was perfect. Lots of shops and restaurants and the bus stop within a few blocks. 


We enjoyed all of the tours very much, especially the glacier hike and zodiac boat iceberg tour. 


Everywhere we went was filled with gorgeous scenery. It’s sort of like Scotland and Hawaii combined. 

"Amazing Ireland Vacation"

Christine W.

Colorado

I started planning my trip in May of 2019, planning to budget out and get a good idea of what a 2 week trip to Ireland would cost. Josi was incredible in helping me get a cost outlined early on, and when 2020 hit and things were changing by the week we were able to plan some things out further. Come the month before my vacation we had all the excursions and sightseeing outlined, everything set, and I was able to have an amazing experience in Ireland. I hope to go back again and see more of what I only got a sampling of.

"Anniversary in the Rockies"

Everything was great. The upgrade from a hotel room to a townhouse was excellent. I loved the Yellowstone tour and the Grand Teton tour. Spring Creek Ranch was the best place to stay.  Disappointed that two tours were cancelled.

"Family vacation in Ireland"

Peter D.

Texas

The six of us truly enjoyed our 12-day family vacation, and appreciated the planning effort and support we received from Authenticvacations. Everything went smoothly. Renting cars and driving on the left side of very narrow roads in Ireland may not be for everybody, but we had drivers with prior experience in our group and for us it worked out great. We are looking forward to planning more trips in the future. Thanks Michaela.

"Wedding and Honeymoon in Ireland"

We couldn’t have asked for a better planned adventure! Our wedding was breathtaking on the Cliffs of Moher and we had the best accommodations. I am forever grateful to Authentic Vacations and their wonderful travel agents Maggie and Lizzie!

"Love Ireland!"

Kathren A.

Ireland

Love Ireland I will be going back. Still a lot of places there to explore. Loved doing the little towns and B&B's. All my landladies where exceptional! Helpful. Grand breakfast every morning. Beautiful country. The Cliffs of Moher! Spent three hours there walked 6 miles. Took 75 pictures. The hardest part deciding which picture I want blown up!
