TRANSPORT - This tour involves crossing between Ireland and England. There are two ways of doing this (although you could mix them up). A night ferry from Belfast to Liverpool, followed by another night ferry from Liverpool to Dublin. This arrangement permits us to take our vehicle out of Ireland and avoids processing new pick-ups each time we land. An Irish Sea ferry isn't a 'cruise', although we can achieve some degree of comfort by using private two-berth cabins. Spending two nights at sea does reduce the hotel prices slightly. The crossing takes eight hours, but can leave you 'kicking your heels' a little bit on arrival as they get in fairly early. It's why we've scheduled Lytham (the furthest drive) on your Wednesday
Alternatively we could fly between Belfast and Liverpool or Manchester, and back from Liverpool or Manchester to Dublin. Despite us having modelled and indicatively priced the ferry, on balance, Faraway Fairways would probably recommend flying. We haven't included the price of any flights in the cost. You will need to make this arrangement yourselves once we have been able to confirm tee-times. Flying is more expensive and will of course incur two extra nights hotel accommodation that the ferry would otherwise absorb. There is probably less that can go wrong flying however, and it's likely to be less fatiguing too
NON GOLF ACTIVITY - Non-golfers get more time for non-golf activity than golfers. An asterisk (*) is used on the ‘Non-Golf’ button in the itineraries to indicate where a golfer could reasonably expect to be able to undertake an activity. Anything left unmarked is only practical for non-golfers to undertake. Check the button called ‘What’s Included’ that appears on the final named day ‘tab’ to see if it’s included in a price.
DISCLAIMER - The content of all tours are sold subject to availability and final confirmation of price. We do not speculatively book hotels in advance. Late bookings might be subject to a market led price increment. The prices displayed are strong indicators of what you would expect to pay but can also fluctuate in line with choices people wish to add or omit. Please check what's included. Prices are per person based on two sharing
