Ann Liguori on Ireland & Northern Ireland Golf Destinations

I’m just back from another amazing golf trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. I’ve traveled around the Emerald Isle for the past 20 some years, playing some of their top courses, and many of their hidden gems.
It’s absolutely my favorite golf destination, not only for the scenic and inspiring courses, wide variety of accommodations from castles and estates to manors and B&Bs, but also for the hospitality of the Irish and the wonderful craic (Gaelic for enjoyable social activity).
Because Ireland has one-third of the links courses in the world, and each is as good or better than the other, my recommendation when planning a trip to Ireland is to choose a region and stay and play the top links and parkland courses in that region.
