Brandon, nice summery. I did a 5 day shoot just before Christmas and covered most of the courses you played. Some of the best courses ever. I'm surprised that you didn't mention much about Portstewart. In my mind it has probably the most stunning front 9 you could ever wish to play, the back 9 isn't too shabby either. I'm going to post the shots on my site so that others can see what I'm talking about. Also I found the folks from the North some of the best people you could ever meet.
It's a tough call Ireland over Scotland, it might be a few pints of the black stuff that swings it.

Brandon, could you be interested in adding the courses you like to http://www.gptg.org/ ? I'm looking for the best places in each country ;-)

Kevin,

About Portstewart...I didn't play it! I wanted to, and hear great things, but couldn't squeeze it in, hopefully next trip...

Cool article, great descriptions. By the way, Bally is an anglicised term for the Gaelic word 'Baile', which means village or town. Ballycastle would be Baile an Chaisle√°in, or Castletown if translated directly from Gaelic!

"My doctor tells me if I have more than 14 full traditional Irish breakfasts in a row, my arteries will begin to drip sausage fat. So I guess it's finally time to leave Ireland, but not without offering up some "Best Ofs"..."

THEY DID A MOVIE ON THIS...CALLED IT SUPERSIZE ME.

"It also has a motorized raft you take over a river to get to the island green. I felt like Huck Finn for 20 seconds."

20 SECONDS EACH WAY...EACH TIME?

"When I met and passed through is group a few holes later, he in fact only had one arm, and from what I could tell, was keeping pretty good pace with his group. Unbelievable."

EVER HEARD OF JACK NEWTON? LOST A PLAYOFF TO WATSON AT THE BRITISH OPEN IN THE MID-1970S, THEN LOST HIS RIGHT ARM AND EYE TO A PLANE PROP SOON AFTER.

Ron Mon,

You're comparing mass-processed fast food to homemade traditional breakfasts made by tiny B&B's? I wouldn't bring that up next time you're over there.

"Bally" is an English version of the Gaelic word "Baile" - ( (pron.: Boll-yah) or town.

Ballyliffin becomes Liffin Town .

Good article, but you neglected so many other coursees in other regions around our beautiful country. Ac ountry wide "Top Ten" would make different reding.

But you'll always be welcome. ;-))

Maitiu (Gaelic "Matthew" pron. same way

I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the 3rd at Mount Juliet - I think it is one of the hardest par 3's I've played. I'm a 16 handicapper but 2 out of 3 times I'm intimidated by the water and drop my ball in the lake.

I have to say that Portrush is my favorite gold course in Ireland. Not to mention the amusements at Barrys close by!
