Besides Golf - other activities in Ireland

When you come to the Emerald Isle, you could be excused for doing nothing but playing golf. Spending all your time on the fairways, however, would mean that you would miss out on Ireland's diverse range of other activities. Here are just a few of the the activities to take part in while traveling to Ireland:

CYCLE: see the world on two wheels
With its winding streets, friendly locals and temperate climate, Ireland is the perfect country to enjoy by bike. From the fair city of Dublin, where the innovative free bike scheme is the envy of the world and a great way to see the capital, to the scenic routes of Killarney's National PArk and the iconic trails like Sheep's Head - on the wild Atlantic coast - and the Beara Way - from gorgeous Donegal to Bantry - there really is no better way to experience the best that Ireland has to offer.

FISH: world class fishing on river, lake and sea
Ireland is one of the most popular sport fishing destinations in Europe and for good reason, too. The massive variety and quality of fishing, has given the country an enviable reputation. Game and course fishing on Ireland's pristine waterways brings tourists from all over the world, and would make a great addition to any golfing holiday. Likewise, an afternoon spent out at sea might be the icing on the cake of your Irish adventure. The waters are open and free, but sometimes a special permit - easily obtained from the fishing store or local official is required. Conservation lars mean that its always worth checking with someone who has local knowledge.

RIDE: there is nowhere better for it
Known as 'the Land of the Horse' Ireland boasts some of the best riding breaks you could wish for. Whether you are an accomplished rider or are more blessed with enthusiasm than technique, there are mounts and options to suit you. Choose from beach rides where you could gallop down an empty strand, point-to-point treks which will explore the finest local scenery or cross-country routes that will challenge your skills. Whichever you pick, one thing is for sure - you'll end the day on a fresh air high and with a smile on your face.

CRUISE: enjoy the waterways
A relaxing cruise on Ireland's rivers and lakes offers a fresh, often-missed perspecitive on the beautiful Irish landscape. Here, you can enjoy every class of sailing, yachting, cruising, narrow boating and rowing. Especially popular with Irish tourists is river cruising, where on the Shannon, for example, you can enjoy a holkiday like no other. Occasionally, it's even possible to cruise right up to the golf course for your round!

HIKE: experience Ireland on foot
Whether you're on for a quick amble or a long day's hiking, Ireland has the route for you. Choose from short looped walks, multi-day, national way-marked trails or strolls through national parks and forests. There are options to suit all levels of walker. From those who seek everything from a short outing with a guide to those who want to take off for a week-long walking safari. Imagine taking carefree to the hills every day!

TOUR: explorations of Irish culture
From the historic streets of cities like Galway, Cork, Dublin, Kilkenny and Belfast to the lesser-known haunts of Ireland's literary superstars, a walking tour can be a rewarding and revealing experience. With some local knowledge and a gift for talking, an Irish tour guide can explain and expand on Ireland's rich history and cultural heritage like no book can and their stories and fun facts will live long in the memory.

Ireland is a perfect destination for your active vacation! Let Celtic Tours World Vacations plan your next trip to Ireland.

The British Open - An Interview with Noel Murphy

While many golfers will tune in to watch the British Open at Muirfield in Gullane, Scotland, where the first round begins July 18, some may still hesitate at trying their hand at Scottish links golf. Wind, rain and blind holes are, literally, par for the course in the game’s homeland.

Noel Murphy, President of Celtic Tours World Vacations, offers a convincing defense of playing under the country’s sometimes inhospitable skies. “What people lose sight of is that the conditions are part of the game, the history, the culture.
Below are  excerpts from a conversation with Mr. Murphy, on how to plan golf in Scotland or Ireland and play some of the world’s top Link’s courses. 
Q. On a tour of Scotland’s best golf courses, what’s your first stop? 
A  #1 would be The Old Course at St. Andrews is where it all began. Kingsbarns would be another great links golf experience within the city of St. Andrews, right by the North Sea. That’s very much part of the links playing experience, the sea. If the wind is blowing from the east, you’re getting the wind from Russia and Scandinavia.  It can be cold, but not all the time, and if raining the driving rain can really make the golf more challenging. Some days you get no wind or rain , and it’s a totally different game.
Q. Where to next? 
A. Head inland and stop at the Ladybank Golf Club and then continue on to Gleneagles. One can play any of our courses: the P.G.A. course designed by Jack Nicklaus or the King’s and the Queen’s courses.  There’s lots to do besides golf: the spa, the Michelin-starred Andrew Fairlie restaurant, tennis, whisky tours.
Then go southwest to Turnberry on the Atlantic. It has an excellent hotel, and the Ailsa course is fantastic. The ruins of the Scottish king Robert the Bruce’s castle you can see from the ninth hole. Around there are a whole host of hidden gems like the Prestwick and the Royal Troon, and that’s what you really want to get to in Scotland.
Q. And if you were to go north? 
A. The Royal Aberdeen is a good golf course by the sea. Nairn, that’s farther north. Farther still is Royal Dornoch. Tom Watson said that it’s one of his favorite golf courses.
Q. How difficult is it to get on these courses? 
A. A lot of these smaller members courses like Muirfield, where the British Open is being held, Prestwick and Royal Troon, they have been around for hundreds of years. They’re run by the members for the members; consequently it’s not as straightforward as getting your credit card. But you can get on these courses on certain days and times. Check with Tour Operators such as .
They know the local scene, local people, and will do a good job.

Q. What about Golf in Ireland:
A.  Golf packages to Scotland or Ireland can be taken separately or on its own. Ireland is a short Ferry ride from Scotland to Larne, just outside Belfast or one can avail of the several flights from Glasgow or Edinburgh to Dublin, Belfast or Derry.  Once in Ireland one can take advantage of the outstanding world top ranked links courses such as Royal Co. Down, Royal Porthrush, Port Stewart,  Balllyliffin, Donegal,  Sligo & Enniscrone.  You can then venture south to Baltray, Portmarnock, Royal Co. Dublin. On the extreme  Southwest coast you have world famous courses such as Lahinch, Ballybunion, Tralee and Waterville.   On the Southeast side you have the famed Old Head, which juts out from the mainland. Many other links courses are available at reasonable rate such as Carne &  Ballyconneely on the west coast. Scotland and Ireland have over 1400 golf courses between them to choose from. Many of the courses are “Hidden Gems” and green fees cost about half of the bigger named courses. They offer as good if not better golfing on scenic links courses.
Q. During the British Open, Hotels and other services can be more expensive than normal, what is your preferred time of season.
A.  For Scotland or Ireland the best time to travel is at the end of April up to June and after that I prefer September or October. Weather can be different depending on which coast          you select. Ireland’s Northeast coast is similar to Scotland’s West coast and both can be up to 10 degrees warmer than Scotland’s Northeast coast. High temperatures can range from 58 degrees to 78 with lows of 54 to 60 degrees.
Ireland’s South east and South west tend to have better weather most of the year, but usually only by a few degrees, wind may not be as strong as Ireland North or Scotland. The West coast of Ireland is on the Atlantic and one can experience a good deal of sunshine with wind and some small showers. At the same time one can go for weeks without rain or strong winds.
