Ireland Activities

 

This is a tough one as there are so many things to do and in such a short amount of time. This list is not definitive by any means but does list some of the most requested and some different activities for people coming to Ireland. If you have an interest and it is not listed here it does not mean it’s not available.  Just give us a call or email and if we don't have the information straight off we will dig it out for you.

Golf:

Venue to the Ryder Cup 2006, and for years renowned as a place of excellence for Golf, Ireland is the place. Ireland has a wide variety of courses and types from links to parkland and from expensive to affordable so something for everybody. There are the championship courses that carry name and reputation like Ballybunion, Waterville, Tralee and Lahinch. The prestigious like the K-Club and Old Head and the good quality courses dotted all over the country that are making a name like Enniscrone, Connemara, Waterford Castle. The list of courses are endless and we can recommend, and book the course to suit your itinerary and budget or book the courses that you have a specific desire to play.

Equestrian:

Terry Flynn ToursFrom equestrian centres to pony trekking there are so many options. For the avid equestrian there are centres all over the country that offer accommodation too, from Guesthouse to Self Catering and listed trails for up to a week long vacation. Then for the more part time rider there is pony trekking or centres that offer guided routes which are suitable for beginners or intermediates.

Fishing:


There is fishing to suit all tastes, from fresh water fishing to sea angling - and it is available in most regions. However some do specialise more than others.  The midlands has a superb reputation for fresh water fishing and fly fishing while the south west has a good reputation for sea angling. There are also some of the great fishing houses of Ireland where you can retreat for a day or more and try some good fishing with a gillie (guide). In some locations a half days fishing with a guide is available where you can also hire the equipment and have the fishing licence included at a reasonable cost.
 

Terry Flynn ToursGardening:


With our mild temperate climate and warm gulf stream Ireland is a gardeners paradise. With the combination of Heritage Homes and gardens, national parks and the wild flowers that bloom all over Ireland there is a huge amount to fit in to an itinerary which spreads into every region.

County Wicklow of course is known as the garden of Ireland on our east coast and then to the south and west the wild rhododendron that bloom in May-June or the fuchsia or multi-coloured hydrangea.

Cooking:

Terry Flynn ToursCooking in Ireland has undergone a renaissance in the past few years, and interest has grown and so have the facilities for the learning of the craft, from simple brown & soda bread demonstrations and traditional dishes to modern and international cuisine with an Irish twist. There are various cooking schools in Ireland that offer 1 day courses non residential or a residential 2 day course or weekend schools.

They range from guesthouse to Manor house accommodations with in house cooking schools with classes from award winning chefs all using the best of local produce. There’s even a chance where your small group can work together under instruction to cook your evening meal and then sit down and enjoy the fruits of labour together.

Crafts & Culture:

From little cottage industries showing the making of their products to locations where you can have a fun lesson in throwing your own pottery or a weekend course for the more serious student.

Testimonials

Hi Terry and company,

One week ago, Michael took most of us to the Dublin airport after an adventurous and exciting two weeks of Irish culture by Terry Flynn Tours.  I believe the naughty fairies below those big winds out way but it did not dampen our spirits nor result in canceling any plans.  It only succeeded in creating marvelous clouds and ocean waves resulting in spectacular photos.

Everyone raved about George and Michael who shepherded us around the Emerald Isle in the new coach.  Their witty jokes, facts and figures gave us valuable insights about Ireland, the culture, the humor and especially history.  Please convey our appreciation to both of them.

The hotels and the B&B were very fine, the meals, delicious and the tours extremely interesting.  Of course, most meaningful for Friendship Force "Ambassadors", was meeting people on a personal level.  We value the time spent with the lovely folks of Carrick on Suir.  It would be marvelous if a Friendship Force chapter might evolve from the seeds of friendship that were sown that evening with the dancers and with Marian Hearn during our excellent cooking lesson.

We appreciate the effort that you and your staff put into making this trip such a huge success.  It was a pleasure to meet everyone.

Prepare to be invaded this August at Milwaukee's Irish Fest when a group of over-sized leprechauns appear at your booth but don't expect us to dance a jig! 

Many thanks!
