With over 400 golf courses and a wide range of accommodation and entertainment options, there are endless varieties of golf vacations in Ireland to suit all budgets.  We strongly recommend having a realistic budget at the outset of your vacation planning process and discussing your budget with us.  The team at Fairways and FunDays can design dream golf and Ireland vacations to suit all budgets.


  1. Non Golfers and Families:

What do you do if there are members of your group who don’t play golf?  The answer is – don’t worry, Fairways and FunDays have got this covered.  We are the only Golf Tour Operator who organise customised itineraries for Non Golfers who travel as part of a group.  Regardless of your interests, we can organise a dream vacation to Ireland for all Non Golfers.

PLUS, Golfers and Non Golfers will collectively get to enjoy iconic tourist attractions and exhilarating evening entertainment on our tours.


  1. Vacation Insurance:

It is essential to obtain Vacation Insurance that will fully cover you and your group in the unlikely event of being unable to travel due to medical reasons, OR having an accident while on your vacation.  All clients of Fairways and FunDays have 24/7 access to a Tour Director while on their vacation.  Our Tour Director will offer advice and assistance in the unlikely event of an unfortunate incident happening to a member of your group while in Ireland.


  1. European Health Insurance Cards:

European clients should ensure to bring their European Health Insurance Cards (EHIC) while on vacation.  In the unlikely event that you will require medical assistance while in Ireland, you will be required to present this card.


  1. Currency:

Ireland uses the Euro (€) currency.  It will prove far less expensive to purchase Euro’s at a bank than doing so at a Currency Exchange Bureau.  The vast majority of outlets in Ireland (restaurants, bars, shops, hotels etc.) accept all internationally recognised Credit and Debit cards.  Using your Credit/Debit card while on vacation is an excellent option as opposed to carrying large sums of cash.


  1. What to Bring:

This very much depends on the time of the year that you are travelling.  Due to the temperate climate in Ireland, we are fortunate that our golf courses are open 12 months of the year.  Naturally weather from October to March is a little colder so if you are travelling to Ireland during this period it is essential to bring appropriate clothing.

It is very important to bring a camera to capture all of the magical moments that you will experience on a Fairways and FunDays tour.  We promise magical memories that will last a lifetime.

If the thought of bringing your golf clubs half way around the world does not appeal, fear not – we can organise private rental of top quality modern golf clubs for the duration of your tour.

If you are opting for a “Self Drive” Tour, it is essential that you bring a valid, up to date Driving Licence with you.


  1. Sit back, relax and enjoy your dream Tour!

This is your dream Golf and Ireland vacation so this is your time to enjoy every second of your time in the Emerald Isle.  The team at Fairways and FunDays carefully and passionately plan all aspects of your golf vacation – airport meet and greet, welcome gifts, transport, accommodation, golf reservations, sightseeing and evening entertainment.  This means that all of the members of your group can relax, concentrate on their golf and concentrate on enjoying Ireland!
