At Faraway Fairways we’ve become increasingly aware that a number of you want to ‘get away from it’, but don’t necessarily want the commitment of a longer ‘tour’. In other words, you want a top golf break over a weekend with a true world class course as the focus but you have so many other things going on around you that you haven’t really got the time to extend much beyond a few nights.
Dublin has long been recognised as one the top-tier weekend break destinations in Europe. The Portmarnock Dublin weekend golf break seeks to tap into this and is frankly ideal. We have three top rated golf courses all within 20 minutes of Dublin airport, with a resort hotel that puts all of them within 10 minutes of where you’re staying. This is one weekend break where you can let the golf come to you. Furthermore, the fabled attractions of the Irish capital are on your doorstep too. It’s only a 40 minutes journey right into the heart of central Dublin for those of you who wish to test the city’s well earned reputation for hospitality
The package is designed for someone who can leave work mid-day Friday, or even early evening, so long as they can arrive in Ireland early on Saturday morning. Anyone taking it from the UK or continental Europe will be back at work by Tuesday morning. But here’s a twist, by virtue of flying back across time zones, so will anyone from North America.
The Portmarnock Dublin weekend golf break isn’t exactly a new concept you might suggest? True, we’ll give you that ‘short putt’! But most of these weekend golf packages tend to be resort first and golf second. Faraway Fairways’ big weekend golf breaks put the golf first. Well to no small extent in Ireland, you have to, Spain we ain’t!
So it might sound a bit ambitious at first, and sure it’s probably not completely unfair to think that this type of weekend golf break is more likely to appeal to those of you who have fast moving lifestyles and a bit of ‘go’ about you, but this needn’t be an exclusive requirement. Ultimately the world is becoming a smaller a place, and it is becoming increasingly possible to do these types of things. When you walk back into work on Tuesday and someone enquires whether you “did anything interesting at the weekend?” it would perhaps be nice to reply “played golf in Ireland. And you?”
