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.
