What our customers say about Real Irish Golf

Conn put together an amazing golf trip for me and 3 friends. It was a spur of the moment trip and Conn delivered flawlessly. The Island, Baltray, RCD and The European Club were all amazing. Staying in Dublin as our base of operations and having a driver was perfect. Conn and Real Irish Golf were the best - we will return!

What a great trip! We provided Conn with a few suggestions/requests and he and his team took care of all the details; including rescheduling the entire trip which was postponed due to 2020 COVID restrictions. During this great trip we were unfortunately involved in a minor accident, no one was hurt but we were sure that our trip was going to suffer as our van needed to be replaced. Conn and his team had us a new van the next day and rescheduled our day at Waterville so that we never missed a beat. I would highly recommend working with Real Irish Golf when you plan your trip!

Pendleton PartyNovember 2021

I just returned from my golf trip to Dublin, and it was absolutely fantastic, all because of Real Irish Golf. Conn Connolly and the Real Irish Golf Team were incredibly responsive, flexible and knowledgeable throughout my experience with them. Conn and his team set us up in two great hotels, and managed to accommodate our golfing needs with 5 out of this world golf courses. Throughout every step of planning process, if me or my party had a concern, or proposed amendment to the itinerary, the change was made swiftly and effectively. Real Irish Golf was full of options and suggestions on where to stay and where to play. We stayed in the Slieve Donard in Newcaste Northern Ireland while we played Royal County Down.

Remy PartyOctober 2021

What an experience! While in Dublin we stayed at the Hyatt Centric Liberties, which we loved. Playing golf around Dublin, we saw Portmarnock, The Island, The European Club, and County Louth. All the courses were amazing, and I cannot wait to get back to them. I will 100 percent be using Real Irish Golf again for my next trip to Ireland. Thank you Conn and Real Irish Golf for an incredible trip!

We had a fantastic time on our Ireland/Northern Ireland golf trip that Conn planned. Best golf courses I’ve ever played and Conn even joined us on our last day and bought us drinks. The trip was 2 years in the making with multiple Covid postponements and Conn was very helpful keeping us up to date on developments so we could actually make the trip happen. Last but not least, we loved our driver Jimmy who showed us the sights and made us feel welcome all week!

Rome PartySeptember 2021

We have just returned from our trip of a lifetime arranged by Conn at REAL IRISH GOLF. How he navigated the pandemic and put together our world class itinerary was masterful. Portrush, Royal County Down, Port Stewart, K-Club, Euro Club. Really? It doesn't get any better. Everything exceeded expectations: golf, hotels, rental van, and especially the Irish people.

McCabe PartyNovember 2021

Conn's availability and quick responses to our many questions made our trip virtually stress free. We very much enjoyed the Irish history lessons, drinks and parting gifts Conn provided after our final round. He truly loves golf as much as we do. We will definitely return for more rounds with Conn and REAL IRISH GOLF.

McCabe PartyNovember 2021

"Had a fabulous trip thanks to Conn! He arranged everything and made sure all was in place for our entire trip (including having a fully stocked bar in our bus)!! Couldn’t be happier and will definitely book again through Conn!!"

Horvath PartyJune 2019

My group of six just finished a 9 day trip to Northern Ireland, and Real Irish / Conn was our tour provider.
The first thing I noticed when working with Conn was his responsiveness. Initially, I was also planning with another tour operator, and Conn would respond to my inquiries three times as quickly as the other business. We decided to book with him and are glad we did. The Bushmills Hotel and the Slieve Donnard Hotels were excellent. The staff at both places were excellent, and the hotels were centrally located to our courses.
We played Portstewart, Royal Portrush, Castlerock, Ardglass, Royal County Down, and Portmarnock. Conn was familiar with all these courses and arranged tee times, buggies and caddies as required at each course.
We managed to meet up with him for dinner one of our nights and found Conn to be as agreeable in person as he was via emails and phone calls.
I gladly recommend Conn to anyone planning the trip of a lifetime for golf in N. Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.

It was a wonderful trip and nice to be home. Conn at Real Irish Golf was great to work with. He promptly responded to emails and always gave me a call back to go through details of our trip. If we had to do the trip again I'd do it exactly the same.

McMahon PartyMay 2018

So happy you had us play Dooks, I'm not sure how people can skip it. Loved every second of it and might have had the nicest staff. Different kind of course and views were amazing.

McMahon PartyMay 2018

Thank you - everything was perfect.

DeVilliers PartyJuly 2018

I hope all is well. Sorry for the delay in sending this but I wanted you to know we loved the trip. We had a wonderful time. Best trip ever ! Linda must have taken 1000 pictures ! Our driver, JJ was great.

Burke/Christ PartyMay 2018

Our Trip was certainly one to remember. I think I can speak for the others that it was supremely beautiful in so many unexpected ways. First of course were the links courses.

Hamann PartyJune 2018

I would say you did an outstanding job of selecting the courses and I suspect you did it knowing our rough handicaps and ages. I look forward to bring my wife back to take in the beauty of your country.

Hamann PartyJune 2018

The trip was fantastic! We did a lot of sightseeing and really took a lot in. The weather cooperated as well. The guys loved the golf.

Frost PartyJuly 2018

Overall the trip was great, thank you again. Hard to say what my favorite was, probably thought Tralee was most interesting and hardest course. Loved the Waterville experience as well as Old Course at Ballybunion.

Byczek PartyJune 2017

Had a great trip! Weather good as well! Ballybunion ate our lunch though. 25mph winds. Thanks again for everything!
