Hello Elaine,


Thank you for your email.

We all have arrived back safely and really enjoyed our golfing experience & time in Scotland.

Thank you again for all the lovely arrangements and assistance provided by you from the beginning to the end, especially during our time in Scotland.

Hi Sarah,

Golf Vacations Scotland is the absolute best tour operator to work with!  I was given the task of arranging a last minute trip to Scotland and Sarah was an absolute godsend in helping pull everything together.  She coordinated the entire package from hotels, tee times, restaurants, transportation, etc.  This was all done with a high degree of professionalism and responsiveness.  When the crew decided to go to southwest Ireland next year, we immediately reached out to Sarah who delivered another top notch performance to set up a great itinerary with Golf Vacations Ireland for 2024.  I highly recommend GVI!!!

Hi Cara,
Great job, Cara!!!!  Eight courses in eight days, four hotels, eight restaurants, hundreds of miles of coach travel expertly coordinated and without a hitch. Have Pat drive for every trip you book if possible. Not only is he very personable, he is thinks of everything and acts upon it without prompting. Hands down the best person we have had handling us on the road. Always on time, always willing to help, always smiling, always accommodating. The guys were enamored with his tales of Irish history and local knowledge. Truly a positive for your company to have him representing you.

All the best,

Dear Eamonn,

A note to thank you for your efforts in setting up a truly memorable golfing experience – all went like clockwork as did the previous 4 trips you organised for us – much appreciated  and a pleasure to deal with someone on the top of his game. We were blessed with sunshine, no rain or wind and some really enjoyable courses – I am sure the Irish had a hand in this too!!!

All the courses we played were special – a privilege to be able to play them.

Till next time, Best wishes and kind regards

Thank you again for your great planning on our trip.  Everything went perfect: rooms were fantastic, our driver Con did a great job, pubs were fun, the Gaelic hurling match was a highlight and, contrary to everyone’s opinion, the food was really good.  Ireland and Golf Vacations Ireland get ٭٭٭٭٭

Thank You So Much,

I’ve been planning & coordinating our “buddies golf trip” for the past 27 years with groups ranging from 8-24 guys.  I wanted to pass along our HIGHEST compliments to you & your firm for the OUTSTANDING service, coordination and professionalism in helping us create and execute our 7-day golf trip for 16 guys across southern Ireland earlier this month.  ALL of details were perfectly orchestrated and believe me, we are a bunch with HIGH expectations.  The hotels and dinner venues you suggested worked out perfectly and Chris – our AWESOME bus driver – showed us every courtesy.  He was knowledgeable, professional, helpful and above all patient with us – no matter what we needed – he provided it with a smile – going the extra mile every time.

27 years and too many great trip experiences to count, but… I must say – you helped make THIS TRIP our BEST TRIP YET!!

Many thanks and Cheers!

Hi Eamonn,
Just wanted to send along a note of thanks for organizing our trip. We had a great time, the weather behaved, and Paddy was just awesome. Not only was he helpful in every way his knowledge of Ireland and its history made the trip just that much more enjoyable. We look forward already to another trip next year.
Have a great summer.


Edward (MA, USA) 2016

Thanks for your help in planning our golf trip to Southwest Ireland. It was fabulous! We enjoyed the great people, good weather and challenging golf. It was very nice to meet Eileen at Shannon, Paddy Casey (P.C.) at Killarney Park Hotel, who was very kind and helpful to us in many ways and Brian the golf pro at Trump Doonbeg, who was a blast to hang out with. In addition to the great people we met, the weather couldn’t have been any better – sunny and in the 60’s almost every day.
I would recommend this trip to others who want to laugh, enjoy great food, stay at first class hotels and play some of the most challenging golf in the world – at world class courses.
Thanks again and my very best,


Jeffrey E Cunningham (MA, USA) 2016

Thanks again for taking care of every last detail for our trip to Ireland. Since this was our sixth booking with you over 14 years, I guess you know we are well-pleased with the service and attention we always receive. The lodging was just right, and the golf courses were all ready for us even if our games might not have been ready for them. Coach service was flawless as always – Stephen handled our group with patience and utmost courtesy.
When it’s time to book golf in Ireland (or perhaps Scotland next trip!) I would never consider anyone else. No need — you handle it all so we can relax and enjoy ourselves without worry. You are the best at what you do. Congratulations on your years of success!



Douglas Emblidge (NY, USA) 2016

What a grand time we had, though Lahinch and Ballybunion did kick a few tails. Everyone was in agreement that Old Head is as spectacular a course as we’ve ever played and Waterville was great fun. Our driver Mark was stupendous, catering to our every whim. We could not have done better than Mark and when we come back he will be a lot of the reason why we do. And lastly, thank you for arranging everything. It all went off without a hitch



Chris (GA, USA) 2016

Hi Darragh and Eamonn,
well we are on our way home and we just wanted to thank both of you for all of your help and planning. We had a most lovely trip, saw much of the Irish countryside, had beautiful weather for our golf on wonderful courses and we are officially certified to pour Guinness. We found driving exciting and scary at times, especially on one lane roads with two way traffic and sheep. Much fun, and we brought the car back intact. So thanks again, and should anyone ask, we will recommend your company.

Hi Eamonn,

I just wanted to send you a short note to say how incredibly impressed our group was with the job you and your team did in organizing our trip to Scotland. You were extremely responsive and supportive before and during the trip. I organize several golf trips myself, usually without a travel planner, and can be critical of how trips are run. I can’t think of a single thing you could have done better….from arranging the golf, providing a detailed itinerary, suggestions on food and other misc items, to inputting destinations into the rental van’s GPS.

I’ve never seen a trip run so smoothly. So thank you very much for all you did in making this an amazing trip that the 4 of us will never forget.

We’ll be back to Scotland, and of course, Ireland as well….and will certainly be giving you a call when we do. I’ll also be passing your name onto others who are looking into trips to Scotland and Ireland.

Thanks again,

Hi Ruairi

I know this is a little late but I wanted to thank you.  The trip went perfectly.  The accommodations were excellent. The golf courses were ready for us and the weather was superb. Our car rental went smoothly.

My sons and I had a tremendous time.  After planning this for so long I couldn’t have asked that it go better.  We have lots of good memories.

You did a tremendous job – thank you.  I have passed your name and company on to several of my friends who have asked me about the trip.   I can’t say enough good things about your preparations.

Hopefully if we do this in 5 years again as we planned, we will be in touch.

Thank you again.

Hi Eamonn,

Well, we are back home from our trip. I wanted to drop you a note thanking you for the wonderful bookings and planning that you did for us.

All the B&B’s were lovely.  Our tour with Betty was amazing – we adored her and appreciated all her insight and intelligence.

We also thought Alwynn did an excellent job of taking us around Wales and highlighting the major attractions.

Thank you again.  I would be happy to recommend you and when we plan our next trip to Ireland and Scotland I will look forward to having you plan it for us.

Thank you again.

Hi Eamonn,

Just arrived home from a wonderful week of touring Scotland and the golf courses. Things went extremely well and we are very pleased with the trip.

We appreciate all you did to arrange this vacation and look forward to maybe looking at another trip in the future.

All the best and thanks again.

Hi Ruairi,

Just got back and had an incredible trip! We could not have asked for better weather the days we golfed and the entire group was very happy we decided to go with the caddies. They greatly added to the experience.  Thank you again for all your help with the trip planning and services. I will gladly be reference for you and your company if you ever need one.

Best regards,

Ron Colonna, CT, USA 2015

Hi Ruairi,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for setting up our trip. Our expectations were exceeded in every way and it truly was the vacation of a lifetime for us both. We’ll keep you in mind for when we come back.

Kevin Quinn, PA, USA, 2015

It was a amazing trip! Courses were great; weather held; accommodations with a can-do (caring) staff and a driver that went above and beyond; friendly Scots’ wherever we went. What was not to like? Perhaps better golf scores. ha. Please pass on to our driver Kenneth’s boss our highest praise for him. Our adventure in Scotland is over, filled with memories and reflections that will last our entire life. Sincere thanks from all of us for your efforts, attention to details and communication. So glad we used your services again! Should we plan a trip that way again, you will be our choice.

Take care, God Bless.

John Patterson, Idaho, USA, 2014

Nice to hear from you. The trip was beyond words. Scotland was fabulous from the scenery, the people, golf, to the accommodation recommended by you. Joe was truly a Scottish gentlemen and great guide from the beginning to the end. The only regret was not enough time to see the remainder of the country – Next time!

We will definitely recommend your service to anyone.

Happy Holidays.
