(Charter Only)

Our Golf Cruise Itinerary includes 3 of Europe’s best golf courses and one local course. Adare Manor Golf Course is part of the beautiful Adare Manor Estate in Adare Village, Co. Limerick and will host the Ryder Cup. We have also included the world famous Lahinch Golf Course, this will test any golfer and will probably rank as the most memorable golf course a guest will play on in Ireland. On the shores of the wild Atlantic Ocean we play Trump Doonbeg. Included in the Golf Cruise is one local course, Glasson Golf Course, located right next to our moorings in Glasson. Golfers describe Glasson as simply breath taking. We don’t leave non-golfing spouses/partners hanging about, a “tantalising” Cruise Itinerary awaits them.
