2020 Irish Links Golf Cruise

12 Nights | 5 Rounds | Dublin - London | August 29 – September 10

PerryGolf is proud to partner with Azamara Club Cruises for an exceptional 12 night, 5 round golf voyage nearly circumnavigating the Emerald Isle onboard the outstanding 690 guest Azamara Quest. We sail from Dublin for nine diverse ports including Belfast, Londonderry, Donegal, Galway, Cork, Waterford, and finally, London. The golf is exceptional with five of Ireland’s highest rated clubs including Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Ballybunion Old and remarkable Old Head.  ... Read More.

Dublin is the ideal location for an extended port visit because it has a multitude of cultural, historical and entertainment options. Be certain to reserve time for a visit to the Church of Christ Cathedral - and later, enjoy a pint of Guinness at one of the many pubs. The charms of London are known and appreciated across the globe, from Buckingham Palace to the streets of Chinatown with myriad dining and evening entertainment options to satisfy any taste. The golf in Ireland is incomparable and Royal Portrush will be fresh from its return to the major championship stage, as host of the 2019 Open Championship. We’ll also play a round at Ballybunion Old, an Irish favorite for five-time Open Champion, Tom Watson.

Azamara Quest is a mid-sized luxury vessel nimble enough to access smaller ports yet large enough to provide every amenity you expect from fine dining and live entertainment to a full-service spa. Forty-four suites are available with English butler style service which routinely book early. Particularly enjoyable about a PerryGolf / Azamara cruise is how the schedule will include many extended stays in port plus the occasional overnight which permits a truly immersive experience. Better still, Azamara Club Cruises are inclusive of a full selection of beer, spirits, soft drinks, bottled water, specialty coffees plus wine with lunch and dinner along with gratuities for housekeeping, dining and bar staff.

Every aspect of the golf program is managed by PerryGolf staff onboard and ashore. Your clubs will be waiting your arrival at the golf course. Tee times and pairings will be posted the night before. Casual competitions will be arranged and prizes awarded. Lunch is included while you play plus there will be an open bar at the clubhouse when you finish. Carts/caddies, transfers, local taxes, service charges and gratuities (excluding caddies) are included.

The guest list will number between 40 and 60, most of whom are golf couples although it’s common to have non-golfers who will enjoy themselves as a luxury cruise guest starting with Quest’s fabulous facilities along with a wide selection of Azamara Shore Excursions®. The “2020 Irish Links Golf Cruise” is a full-featured vacation and a unique opportunity to enjoy a yourself in the company of like-minded new friends!

Detailed Itinerary

2020 Irish Links Golf Cruise
12 Nights | 5 Rounds | Dublin - London | August 29 – September 10

AUGUST 29, SATURDAY: DUBLIN, IRELAND (7:00AM / IN PORT)

Embark Azamara Quest beginning at 1:00PM. All aboard by 4:30PM.

Welcome Cocktails & Briefing this evening. Meet your fellow participants.

Fortunately, this is one of our longest port visits because there is a lot to do in Dublin.  A good place to begin is The National Museum of Ireland on Kildare Street for a well-designed archaeological collection featuring Bronze Age gold jewelry and Viking swords. The stars of the show are the “bog people” — preserved corpses of men who were killed (presumably sacrificed) and tossed into peat bogs during the Iron Age. The preservative qualities are remarkable.  Dublin is home to St Patrick’s Cathedral of course but much of Ireland’s history can be read in Christ Church Cathedral, which dates back to circa 1030. The medieval crypt is full of treasures plus the belfry tour (11:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.) provides a beautiful view and an up-close look at the flying buttresses, as well as the chance to try bell-ringing. Dublin’s booming culinary scene is found along Exchequer Street where The Green Hen has won many admirers with its combination of French atmosphere and Franco-Irish cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients. Try the pan-fried duck breast.  Finally, while craft beer is certainly the popular new thing, a pint of “the black stuff” is still required drinking on any trip to Dublin. The Guinness Storehouse museum at the St. James’s Gate brewery explains how the stout is made and how to pull a proper pint at the correct 45-degree angle and waiting 119.5 seconds before topping it off. Take it up to the Gravity Bar, where the 360-degree view of Dublin is worth lingering over.

Enjoy Dublin on your own or via Azamara Shore Excursions®

Overnight: In Port – Dublin, Ireland

AUGUST 30, SUNDAY: DUBLIN, IRELAND (IN PORT / 6:00PM)

Today play Portmarnock Links designed by Bernhard Langer and opened for play in 1995.  As a three-time winner of the Irish Open at nearby Portmarnock Golf Club and The Royal Dublin Golf Club it was fitting that Langer chose this magnificent setting to design his first links course set in the grounds of the old Jameson Estate of St. Marnocks.  The course has played host to professional and amateur events including 2008 and 2009 Ladies Irish Open. Note: Golf cart venue.

Overnight: At Sea

AUGUST 31, MONDAY: BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND (8:00AM / 11:00PM)

GOLF: Today play Royal County Down. Located in the town of Newcastle to the south of Belfast. Consistently ranked in the top 10 courses in the world, this is a true test of links golf set against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne. Host to the 2007 Walker Cup Match featuring a young local by the name of Rory McIlroy, and an all-star USA lineup.

SIGHTSEEING: Belfast in the early 20th century had the largest and most productive shipyard in the world, gaining global renown with the launch of the RMS Titanic. Located on the slipways where she was built is a stunning new museum, opened in time for the 100th anniversary of Titanic’s only voyage and tragic demise. Today the city and riverfront are undergoing a 21st century transformation, but many exuberant Victorian and Edwardian buildings still sport the carved heads of kings and queens. As you explore the city, keep an eye out for “the murals.” These somewhat troubling freelance works appearing on building walls provide insight into the period known simply as “The Troubles.”

Enjoy Belfast on your own or via Azamara Shore Excursions®.

Overnight: At Sea

SEPTEMBER 1, TUESDAY: LONDONDERRY, NORTHERN IRELAND (8:00AM / 8:00PM)

GOLF: Today play Royal Portrush. It holds the distinction of being the only course in Ireland to have hosted The Open. Royal Portrush returned to The Open rota in 2019 following a 70-year absence. The Dunluce Course is as fine a links as you will find anywhere, with the 5th being a particularly memorable hole to a green hanging on the edge of a cliff. Consistently ranked in the top 20 of the world's best courses. 

SIGHTSEEING: The city of Derry, or Londonderry, is the second largest in Northern Ireland behind the capital, Belfast. Said to have been founded in the 6th century by Saint Colmcille (or St Columba), Derry was renamed Londonderry in 1613 upon the award of its Royal Charter by King James I. Through the siege of the walled city in 1689 to its key strategic role in World War II, Derry has been influential in the shaping of the world around it. In 2013, it holds the honour of being the UK's first City of Culture. Enjoy Londonderry

SEPTEMBER 2, WEDNESDAY: DONEGAL, IRELAND (8:00AM / 6:00PM)

Described by National Geographic Traveler as the “Coolest Place on the Planet for 2017,” Donegal is a nature lover’s paradise, located at the mouth of River Elke in NW Ireland. Any visit here must include a self-guided tour at Donegal Castle, which was built in the 15th century and is adjacent to the town square, providing convenient access to shopping and dining options. While you’re there, pick up a jacket or cap made of Donegal Tweed, handwoven and unique due to its pattern and heathered effect. Sitting on the outskirts of town, the ruins of The Abbey of the Four Masters overlook the water where the River Elke flows into Donegal Bay.

Glenveagh National Park is a lush, green oasis. A few miles north of town, admire the majestic cliffs of Sliabh Liag and take a comfortable walk around the scenic and serene Lough Eske.

Overnight: At Sea

SEPTEMBER 3, THURSDAY: GALWAY, IRELAND (8:00AM / 10:00PM)

Galway sits on the west coast of Ireland where the River Corrib meets the Atlantic Ocean. Start your day in the town hub of Eyre Square, a public park adjacent to a collection of shops and pubs where traditional Irish folk music provides the soundtrack during the afternoons and evenings. The Galway Cathedral is one of the largest and most impressive buildings in the city. This Roman Catholic church features a mosaic of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. The Spanish Arch, located on the River Corrib, was built in 1584. Those seeking something a little spookier might be interested in the Lynch Memorial Window, where in 1493 legend has it the town mayor hung his son for murdering a visitor.

OvernightAt Sea

SEPTEMBER 4, FRIDAY: FOYNES, IRELAND (7:00AM / 6:00PM)

GOLF: Ballybunion Old is carved from the earth, amid the dunes beside the ocean and features dramatic changes in elevation. It’s the most famous links in Ireland, in part because American professional Tom Watson, the five-time Open Champion, professed his love for the layout when he hoisted the Claret Jug in 1982. A natural, elemental design it is cut from the same cloth as Pebble Beach or St. Andrews, courses that needed only slight refinement by the hand of men.

SIGHTSEEING: Foynes is a tiny village but a major port in County Limerick in midwest Ireland. While there are less than 1,000 residents, Foynes is home to the Flying Boat & Maritime Museum which features historical archives and interactive exhibits. Tour the only replica B314 Flying Boat in the world, enjoy a panoramic view in the reinstated control tower and learn about the movie stars and celebrities who spent time here in the 1930s and 1940s. Also discover the village’s connection to the U.S. Civil War and discover the story behind the origin of Irish Coffee - enjoying a taste for yourself, of course.

OvernightAt Sea

SEPTEMBER 5, SATURDAY: CORK (COBH), IRELAND (8:00AM / 10:00PM)

GOLF: Perched atop a cliff in a dramatic portion of Ireland, the links at Old Head is one of the world’s most discussed courses as golfers appreciate not only its magnificent beauty but also the diverse strategic options in ever-changing winds. The par-5 No. 17, ‘Lighthouse’ requires golfers to challenge the rugged coastline - or play conservatively and deal with a blind approach. The home hole is a daunting dogleg left par-4 with trouble awaiting on both sides of the fairway.

SIGHTSEEING: Located on Ireland’s southeast coast in County Cork, the quaint seaside town of Cobh (old Irish for cove) is known for its great maritime heritage and seafaring history.  As Ireland’s only dedicated cruise terminal, Cobh was the departure point for 2.5 million of the six million Irish people that immigrated to North America between 1848 and 1950. It remains a popular port of call today for cruise liners from all over the world in part due to the fact that Cobh was the last port of call for RMS Titanic.  Cobh has remained largely unchanged since that fateful day in 1912 with brightly colored houses along streets that climb to the top of the hill which is crowned by the imposing Cobh Cathedral, St. Coleman's Cathedral with its carillon of 47 bells. On the waterfront there is a statue of Annie Moore who was the first person admitted to the United States through the new immigration center at Ellis Island on January 1, 1892.

Enjoy Cobh on your own or via Azamara Shore Excursions®

SEPTEMBER 6, SUNDAY: WATERFORD, IRELAND (8:00AM / 8:00PM)

The Viking traders who founded Waterford in 914 were not the first to settle in this vicinity; Neolithic standing stones and megalithic tombs testify to much older cultures. A veritable march through the centuries continues with Norman forts, medieval abbeys, and numerous manor houses of 17th and 18th century vintage surrounded by primeval forests, and delightful gardens perfect for strolling.

SEPTEMBER 8, TUESDAY: DARTMOUTH, ENGLAND (8:00AM / 3:00PM)

Dartmouth is a town of 5,000 residents located on the western bank estuary of the River Dart. It features a beautiful harbor that’s dotted with terrific eateries and a steady stream of boats, docking and sailing. St. Saviour’s Church is known for its beautiful stained-glass windows and keeping sailors safe for centuries. The small gardens at Coleton Fishacre make for an easy, walking tour and the Tea Room there is a must visit afterward.

Overnight: At Sea

SEPTEMBER 9, WEDNESDAY: LONDON (GREENWICH), UK (2:00PM / IN PORT)

Conclude the journey with two days in London, a city that needs no introduction and offers myriad attractions, whatever your interest. The obvious starting places are Buckingham Palace enjoying the Changing of the Guard, or the House of Parliament. Take a cruise down the River Thames, or go for a ride in the London Eye, high above the skyline enabling you to absorb the city from a different point of view. The London Planetarium is world class as well. Traveling the city on the Underground is quite simple and safe, creating the best transportation to all your destinations. Those interested in high fashion and upscale shopping will be certain to hit Carnaby Street or Soho, while The Tower of London and Chinatown offer their own appeal. Excellent dining options catering to every interest about throughout the city - 40 Maltby Street and Spring at Somerset House are two of the dozens preferred by diners with discerning palates.

PORTMARNOCK GOLF LINKSPORTMARNOCK GOLF LINKS

Consistently ranked as one of the top five courses in Ireland, Portmarnock Links stands out from other links because most of the trouble along the fairways and greens is visible from the tee. The greens are relatively flat, however, stiff, chilly winds whip off the Irish Sea and across Dublin Bay to wreak havoc on club selection and challenge a golfer's acumen. The course has played host to Irish Opens and Walker Cups and legends such as Snead and Ballesteros.

Venue for the Walker Cup in 2007 and consistently ranked in the top 10 courses in the world.

ROYAL PORTRUSH – DUNLUCEROYAL PORTRUSH – DUNLUCE

An outstanding course in a dramatic setting.
