@Gerbera:  My FI and I are planning a trip to Ireland in April, all revolved around golf.  I will ask him for his advice tonight when I get home, as he’s been doing research for the past couple months.  He’s got a bunch picked out, 2 rounds a day for 14 days…crazy kid.

Okay this is the information I got from the man.

1 hour south of Dublin on the coast is probably the best one south of Dublin called the European Club.

Or if you’re staying a night in Dublin, there’s one called the Royal Dublin or Portmarnock (the best of said 3 courses, but there are 2 courses at Portmarnock and the one that isn’t the Portmarnock Links course is better. The Royal Dublin and Portmarnock are both about 10-15 minutes from the airport.

I told him your budget and those are what he suggested, but he said most in Ireland are under $250 USD/CAN anyway.

This is coming from a guy who is all about golf course architecture, and travels the world to play the best courses, so I trust his knowledge 🙂  He has also been asked by a National Post columnist to write golf course reviews for a website .  Totally irrelevant but I had to add that in, I’m so proud of him haha

My FI said he hasn’t heard of Deer Park, if it were him, he would make the drive back up to Portmarnock, but then again he’ll drive 6-7 hours a day just to play one course. 

He also said he’s pretty sure no matter where you play, it will be a good course
