Along the Wild Atlantic Way you can walk in the footsteps of St Patrick and visit the 5000 year old ringfort of the pagan god Dagda. On a trip to Glenveagh National Park, recount the evictions at Derryveagh and catch a glimpse of majestic Mount Errigal. Traditional Irish villages, nestled along the coast have ensured that old traditions and the Irish language have been preserved. With music and dance the language and soul of Ireland, expect those feet stomping rhythms and haunting ballads in some of Ireland’s best and least known pubs.

Testimonials – Be Assured
Traveled with Chieftain Golf Tours in August 2021 as part of a golfing party of 28. Spent the best part of a week searching for vacation golf providers in Ireland on the web and at the last minute discovered the Chieftain site. From our initial enquiry to leaving Ireland they really were awesome. Very efficient in organizing everything from our schedule, equipment, transfers, accommodation, and even planning our evenings entertainment! Seven of our guys also wanted to fish the Atlantic ocean and they even arranged this on the last day. Absolutely no hesitation writing this testimonial or recommending these guys.
Just a word of recommendation for Chieftain Golfing Co in Ireland on behalf of the Johnson and Nelson golf group. Having been to Ireland a few times before in years gone by, we thought we had seen it all. This time to be different we chose Chieftain Golf and having discussed what we’d done in previous years, they put an itinerary together which took us to another part of the Irish island. What an experience. Totally different and we were all just blown away. At the start or end of the day we also stopped en route to see the sights around the Wild Way of the Atlantic route. The history of this place is truly fascinating and we didn’t expect this to be part of our experience. A big thank you to Joe and Brian (our drivers and guides) for a truly amazing experience. Also a big thank you for arranging and looking after the ones who weren’t golfing!
Went to Ireland in fall 2021 on an all inclusive package tailored for our golf academy group. We had a truly marvelous vacation. Brian’s attention to detail was meticulous and we knew from the start the timeline would run smoothly. We are already provisionally scheduled for a return using Chieftain Golf for fall 2023. Thank you all.
Due to Covid restrictions we decided to go golfing in Ireland. To be honest we had limited knowledge on Irish courses or golfing trip providers there. Having contacted and arranged with Chieftain we flew Stansted to Belfast. The flight is only 35mins. The bus we had on our transfers was a new, very modern type and had free wifi. We stayed at two different hotels which were outstanding and organised by the Chieftain company. The golf courses there are really stunning but what stood out for us was how laid back it is. Absolutely no rush. After such an amazing time there I have only two simple recommendations. If you’re there to play golf, play those links courses along the North and West Coast and without a doubt in the world – book your trip with Chieftain Golf Tours.
I can’t recommend this company enough, from my first email to Bryan nothing was a problem. He organized absolutely everything for us, weeks before we departed. All we had to do was get to Dublin Airport. Bryan then picked us up there late on Thursday evening and brought us to our accommodation. We spent the next 3 days playing golf, eating out and drinking in some beautiful pubs in the north and west of Ireland. Nothing was too much for Bryan and he really made our trip. The bus was unreal, very sleek, had all mod cons including free wifi and of course the fridge, which was never empty. We were dropped back to Dublin Airport on Sunday evening for our late flights back to Leeds Bradford. I will never try to plan a golfing holiday again when these guys are happy to do it for ya!!”
Just a word of appreciation from The Country Club group. Our vacation to Ireland was truly wonderful and all our transitions ran so smooth. We also enjoyed visiting some sights in Dublin on the last day. Many thanks to Chieftain for making it happen.
I decided to use Chieftain Golf for our 8 day Golfing trip to Ireland which has been talked about for nearly 3 years. We chose this company on the recommendation of my father in law who had used them before. I hate to admit it but his advice on this occasion was right on the money. Joe, our driver, picked us up from the airport and for 8 days drove us the length and breadth of the country. Not only did he move us between courses but at night he always seemed to know where to find the best pubs for traditional music where he would sometimes even join in on the session himself. Highlights for us were obviously Ballybunion, The K-club and Royal Portrush, but also worth a mention was Rosapenna and the best 9 hole i have ever played at Cruit Island. We are already planning our return visit next year, so thank you Brian for organising the tour but a special mention has to go out to Joe who made our trip a lifelong memory.
