The Irish Golf Academy provides Irish golf tours, but it isn’t just a “tour” company. We provide experiences rooted in our heritage. We’re not just taking you to Ireland to play a few rounds of golf, we’re taking you into our family and showing you the Ireland that we know. Learn a little more about our owner and main tour guide, Barry McMahon, and you’ll understand this is not a tour, but a surreal experience.

The Real Ireland

Introducing golfers to our home is not only introducing them to the glorious sites of the rolling links, but also introducing them to serenity and peace of mind. While you walk one of the courses, or listen to your local caddy’s friendly banter, before you know it, you will realize you haven’t checked your cell phone and that pint of stout is tasting quite perfectly…

More Than Golf

We don’t just show you the golf courses of Ireland, we show you the community of Ireland. On a trip with IGA you’ll be a part of a small group experiencing all of the local restaurants and pubs, music, and hospitality that Ireland is known for. We create our tours with the hope that every golfer has the feeling of being a part of the Irish family before they leave.

What People are Saying about Irish Golf Academy

I booked my father and I on Barry’s golf trip and it was one of the best trips I’ve ever had. From landing at the airport and being greeted by smiling Irish faces and a wonderful luxurious bus, to playing the most spectacular courses I have ever played. The accommodations were fantastic… Read More

I spent the the first 3 days of the 2013 Irish golf academy’s trip to Ireland in Killarney. Right from the start it was superbly organised. I played at Dooks, Ballybunion New (being my personal favourite) and Tralee. Its fair to say there wasn’t a bad hole in the 54. There was plenty of time to recover from the golf before our evening meal in the hotel in Killarney. The food was up there with the golf courses TOP CLASS!!! After the meal everyone was free to do there own thing. The majority of us looked to sample Killarney’s nightlife again we were not let down, Brilliant live bands playing each night. Overall 5 Star trip

A sterling trip all around.  Astounding courses, excellent accommodations, a relaxed pace, wonderful company, and great fun!

As a novice golfer, who had never previous played on a links course (or in Ireland for that matter), I was not sure what to expect in terms of course playing difficulty as well as the skill level of the rest of the golfers.  I feared that I would be holding everyone up with all of my extra strokes and testing the patience of the group…Read More

Professionally organized and executed from the minute you stepped onto the luxury bus in Ireland, until you boarded the plane a week later to return to the United States. The quality of the golf courses and the breathtaking scenery is unparalleled anywhere else in the world. The accommodations were superb, the food extraordinary, and the Pub life beyond compare. Briefly stated, this was the trip of a lifetime.
