Ireland offers the best golf resorts in Europe!

09 May 2018

At we love reviews, rankings and statistics. And we love them even more when they are transparent, honest and based on information provided by actual golfers. Last February we published our “Best Golf Resorts 2018” rankings. We used our own review data and the reviews of our hotel partner to provide a comprehensive list of the best golf resorts throughout Europe. In those rankings the overall number 1 is Finca Cortesin Hotel Golf & Spa. But we didn’t stop there…

We dug a little deeper into the statistics. We asked ourselves, which country offers the most overall quality? Where should you go if you want to drown yourself in luxury and play some of the most phenomenal golf courses in Europe? Portugal? Spain? Turkey? Think again. Our recent study shows that it’s Ireland that offers the best overall golf resort quality when looking at the sum of all the ratings!

See the article for the full list

The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland score so exceptionally high because the average golf club rating (8.4) is the highest of all the countries that were taken into account. Next to this, the average resort rating (9.0) is also the highest together with Turkey. A nice detail, in our “The most Bang for your Buck” study, Northern Ireland ended 2nd with an average green fee price of € 34,-. The Republic of Ireland ended up 4th out of the eighteen countries that were taken into consideration.
