Every athlete has the perfect fantasy experience. Racing fans dream of tearing up the track at Laguna Seca. Tomorrow's baseball heroes practice day and night in anticipation of they day they'll knock one over the vines at Wrigley Field. Golfer's dream of hitting the links in beautiful Ireland. If there is indeed heaven on earth for golfers, it's found on the Emerald Isle.

Ireland is the home of some of the finest world-renowned golf courses. This beautiful country offers fabulous golf courses that are sure to suit every athlete's dream.

This country offers both gorgeous parkland golf courses, and challenging link courses, providing a complete and totally unique golf experience. If you like to golf, you'll absolutely love an Ireland golf vacation.

Nature has created many of Ireland's link golf courses. They have been carved from the sand dunes along the Irish coastline. Sea inlets dot the coast of Ireland, providing challenging and satisfying games for even the most advanced golfers. Ireland's parkland golf courses, on the other hand, are pristine inland areas set among hundred year-old oak trees. These, combined with Ireland's naturally hilly terrain, create the perfect golf course.

The natural beauty and challenging golf courses earned Ireland the honor of hosting the 2006 Ryder Cup, adding incredible value to those enjoying an Ireland golf vacation. The event was open to all guests of the K Club, located in County Kildare.

Those who really know and appreciate the timeless sport of golf will not think twice before packing up for an Ireland golf vacation. If you choose to embark on this unforgettable adventure, be sure to make the most of it. Don't limit your explorations to only the golf courses. Be willing to venture out and experience everything that the Irish people and the country have to offer.

There are sightseeing spots every bit as fabulous as the golf courses. You won't be able to fit every adventure into a single vacation, so take the time to plan ahead and make the most of your time spent in Ireland.

Most of your time will likely be spent on those exquisite golf courses, but try to fit some additional excursions around your tee times. It will take a bit of planning and schedule juggling, but the results are well worth the effort.

Try to fill in your breaks with sightseeing throughout the countryside, so that you don't' feel as though you've missed something when the end of your Ireland golf vacation rolls around. You'll experience the best of both worlds in one fantastic getaway.

You have many accommodation options to consider when planning your golf vacation in Ireland. There are quaint, family-run restaurants and inns and large, internationally-owed hotels. Historic castles are available to satisfy those who have a true taste for adventure and a little extra money to spend. There is also a chain of guesthouses in Ireland that are linked to small hotels. Guests at these charming hotels often enjoy a true taste of Ireland with wonderful localized home-cooked meals.

Many Irish chefs prepare top quality cuisine using their own recipes. Like the links and the golf courses of Ireland, every one is a little bit different.
