'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling'
6 - 17 July, 2024
IWelcome to Ireland 2024
When Irish eyes are smiling – we are also smiling. And why not?
The PaR nz team have the pleasure of offering you a place on our special tour to the ‘Emerald Isle’ in July 2024. Enjoy the challenge of an extraordinary selection of seven Irish golf courses – Carton House, Old Head, The K Club, Cork, Adare Manor, Lahinch, and Doonbeg. Staying in iconic resorts and hotels including Carton House, Adare Manor, Trump International Doonbeg and Hayfield Manor Hotel. This is 5-star accommodation with 5-star golf all the way!
Our tour package includes 11 nights of luxury accommodation, seven rounds of world-class championship golf and the chance to go on Scotland to the 152nd Open at Royal Troon, with a special Turnberry add-on bonus package. This is a tour not to be missed.
We start our Ireland ’24 tour on the outskirts of Dublin staying at Carton House, managed by the Fairmont Group. The hotel, a historic mansion with two championship golf courses, is set on 1,100 acres of sweeping Kildare parkland.
As you walk through the doors of this magnificent hotel you step back in time to experience the lives of the Irish aristocracy who once resided here. The original details of the manor house merge harmoniously with the contemporary luxury touches one would expect to find from a leading resort.
The list of celebrities and royalty to grace the grounds of Carton House is endless. Queen Victoria holidayed there enjoying time beside the lakes. Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier enjoyed a visit. Peter Sellers and Marianne Faithfull lived there for years. The 1st Duke of Leinster chose it for his country seat in 1739 keeping the mansion in the FitzGerald family until the mid-20th century.
With all this history and luxury perfectly paired with a warm Irish welcome, Carton House will create an unforgettable guest experience.
We begin our golf adventure with golf on site at Carton House playing the O’Meara Course – one of the two courses on offer. Next, we go to the nearby K Club, playing the Palmer North Course, host of the 2006 Ryder Cup and Irish Opens including 2023.
It’s then off to Hayfield Manor a boutique luxury hotel in County Cork. Since its opening in 1996, the Hayfield Manor 5-star hotel has been consistently recognised for providing exceptional service. This is reflected in the various awards with which Hayfield Manor has been honoured. The estate, in the heart of Cork city, was originally owned by the Musgrave family, famous grocery merchants since 1876. The current owners, the Scally family, purchased the estate from the Musgrave family and established Cork’s first 5-star hotel and have continued the hotel’s high standards.
During our stay in Cork, we play one of the world’s most photographed courses – Old Head. We also enjoy a day playing one of Alistair McKenzie’s original courses – Cork GC. We then head north to Limerick to Adare Manor.
Staying at Adare Manor is a lavish experience. The hotel was recently awarded a five-star rating by Forbes Travel Guide 2023, and voted the #1 Resort in the World by Condé Nast Traveller 2022. Its full reward will come to fruition in 2026 as the European host of the Ryder Cup.
Adare Manor was a labour of love from the very start, created to delight, astonish and impress. That legacy is vividly alive in the manor house itself: sumptuously restored, brimming with gothic splendour, and perfectly appointed in every detail. There are 340 hectares of pristine parkland to roam and a Michelin restaurant to dine in along with a world-class spa to refresh and reflect – and yes, we also have golf to play! Adare Manor – a Tom Fazio masterpiece awaits.
Our final nights of luxury and indulgence will be spent at Trump Doonbeg on the wild Atlantic Coast. The investment the Trump family has made in golf worldwide is extensive and every detail at the hotel and on the course is perfectly executed.
Doonbeg is a favourite place of stay for PaR nz who have hosted many past tours there. In 2024 we play both the Greg Norman Doonbeg Course and the nearby, historical Lahinch private members’ course.
Come join us – see the smiling eyes of the Irish – and enjoy the Craic with us.
It will be our pleasure.
