Concierge Golf’s 40 dos and don’ts on a golf trip to Ireland
Planning the trip
Do allow more time to go on a little tour of the land
marks that will be in the towns and surrounding areas.
Save yourself a lot of grief and hassle; arrange a group
captain and give that person the job of communicating the plan to the group.
For first timers, do buy a book on Ireland’s history
before you travel.
Do insist to bring your wife or partner; there are plenty
of things to do in Ireland if your wife or parent is not a golfer.
Do investigate the Irish tourist traps. Example: the
Don’t ask people to come that you don’t know that well;
that can be interesting after day four!
Unpack your golf bag and repack your golf bag with the
bare essentials. You don’t need to bring along the kitchen sink! It’s a heavy
bag if you had to carry it.
Don’t forget a sat nav!
Don’t forget to change your voice mail on your phone,
your vacation reminder, make a visit to your local cell phone store and ensure
you have the correct international phone data package before your step on the
Don’t forget to let your boss know that you are working
on some new customers.

Buy a swisarmy knife and pack it in your golf bag – there
are a million things you can use it for.
The Irish Culture
Do say hello to people and enjoy the craig!
Do try to speak Irish to other Irish people; you should
get a fun response.
Do ask shop vendors for their best price; you might find
an unexpected deal!
If you can; DO attend a GAA Hurling or Gaelic Football
Do wait two minutes or more to drink a pint of Guinness
after it been served.
Do save yourself the embarrassment of mimicking the Irish
Don’t be offended by the Irish people making gentle
making fun comments about not so funny situations… This can is quite normal
practice amongst Irish people and this is called “slagging”.
Don’t ever feel left out of your own group; go to the
local pub and after a while, you will meet another group of buddies by the end
of the night!
Don’t drive on the right hand side of the road; we drive
on the left!
Don’t bother asking anyone “have you even seen a
leprechaun recently?”Trust me we all know and you should know that they never
I heard this recently and I am confused what this means
“Don’t be a spanner but enjoy the tools in a tool box”
Do buy rain gloves and a pack of playing cards.
Do have fun and just play the yardage! And do play 5 yards less that to the flag (as
the ball tends to bounce on an extra few yards)
Do obtain golf instruction if your swing is not good
after day 1!
Do practice your chipping and putting before you travel.
I do believe in miracles – anyone can make a hole in one!
Please do observe the course rules at each golf course.
The rules are very different at every golf course and take a moment at each
course to find out what to do and not to do.
Don’t believe everything you hear from Caddies; if fact,
the truth can be a very rare commodity.
You don’t want to spin the ball in the wind. To control
your spin, use golf balls that suit you. If you don’t know what ball suits you,
get fitted for your correct ball to play.
Don’t be short! On the green; a putt that is uphill and
into the wind – that putt will be slow, very slow.
Don’t believe the
starter at any golf course; they will tell you what you want to hear to get off
the first tee as soon as possible.
Don’t forget to buy your round at the 19th!!!
