By Helicopter

Traveling by helicopter adds another interesting and exciting dimension to your golf tour. This particularly applies to Ireland where the road system limits the number of areas that can be visited on a typical 7 or 8 day trip. Traveling by helicopter is a luxury that turns an unlikely journey into a reasonable choice leaving more time to enjoy the golf and local entertainment. The helicopter can be used every day or for just part of your tour opening up remote areas such as the coast of Donegal with its fabulous courses or combing a visit to Dublin with day trips to world ranked courses such as Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland or Ballybunion on the South West Coast.

 

By Ferry

For golfers combining tours of Ireland and Scotland, England or Wales the shortest sea routes and normal times are:
  • Troon Scotland to Larne Northern Ireland – 2 hours 15 minutes.
  • Cairnryan Scotland to Larne Northern Ireland -2 hours or Belfast 2 hours 22 minutes.
  • Holyhead in Wales to Dun Laoghaire (Dublin) – 2hours 15 minutes.
In Scotland golfers can charter an exciting Kintyre Express boat for golf trips that are fast, convenient and scenic crossings from Troon at the heart of the fabulous West Coast to Machrihanish golf courses on the Mull of Kintyre, Isle of Islay for golf at Machrie and distillery visit, Portstewart and Royal Portrush golf courses in Northern Ireland. Kintyre Express boats are Redbay Stormforce 11 metre (35 feet) rigid inflatable boats (RIB’s), with centrally heated fully enclosed cabins.
