Our trip was excellent. You all did a great job and I wanted to let you know how impressed we were with all the hotels, courses, etc. that you organized for us. Thanks for all your hard work!

Jeffrey M 20.8.22

On behalf of my friends, we wanted to express our satisfaction with the trip and how well organized everything was. I will surely look to Hidden Links for a future golf adventure.

Jim C 14.6.22

Thank you for the GREAT trip we had in St Andrews. The Hidden Links staff was very friendly and considering the circumstances (Covid delays) it was amazing that everything went as smoothly as it did, but that is even more impressive on Hidden Links' part. Everyone agreed while we were there, that you guys did an outstanding job. We had talked about making this kind of trip a 5-to-10-year kind of thing, so we will definitely be looking into this in the future (possibly Ireland) and would love to have Hidden Links be a part of our next trip.

Sean T 20.6.22
Leslie W at Hidden Links

Love you and Hidden Links! Looking forward to the next trip to the Canadian Rockies. Y’all are the greatest!

Leslie W 12.7.22

Wanted to thank you for a fantastic trip & experience! Was a trip of a lifetime and enjoyed by all (despite the group that did not get off the ballot, in the end they had a great day on Castle).

Freeman Tour 13.5.22

On behalf of our entire group, we want to thank Hidden Links on the trip you put together for us to Scotland. It was everything we imagined plus more. From our driver, to our housing, to the golf and everything in between. It was a dream trip. We look forward to talking again when we are ready to discuss our next trip, looking like Ireland. Thank you again!

Frank Z 23.5.22

I wanted to personally thank you and all of the staff at Hidden Links for a wonderful trip. The itinerary worked out very nicely as the transportation, tee times, lodging etc. was all performed in an efficient and friendly way. The only glitch was in the hotel check out process on Friday, as the timing of the pickup for the non-golfers was a few hours after check out which would have left them with no place to store luggage. We called Michelle, in Ireland, and she took care of it immediately. Wow! what great service. The entire process with COVID cancellations was cumbersome, to say the least, but we can’t thank you enough for delivering the golf trip of a lifetime. I am looking forward to planning the next golf trip with Hidden Links.

Dr. William L 5.8.22

Michelle and Vari,
That trip was amazing! My brothers, Dad and I had an incredible time and the memories will last a lifetime.
Thank you and the team for everything!
Hope to do another one in the future and I'd definitely use your team again.

Anthony M – 8.5.22

We had an amazing time! Thanks so much for organizing such a wonderful trip for us.

Aaron P– 13.5.22

Thank you for a great trip!

Ron R – 30.5.22

Thank you Vari. I’m still in Ireland fly fishing until tomorrow. The other golfers left for home on Sunday. It was unanimous that this was our best golf trip in 35+ years. You, Michele, Willie and the rest of the Hidden Links team made this a memorable outing. We’re already thinking about another trip. Thanks again.

Larry L – 3.5.22

Thanks so much Vari and everyone else that helped us out. Everything was perfect. We couldn’t have been happier or had more fun. Next time we come to Ireland we will reach back out! 

Bill K – 6.5.22

It was a great trip!  Your team was awesome!  Let's work on northern Ireland for late June 2023!  Should I call Michelle on Monday?
The weather, the courses, the driver, the hotels, the people of Ireland were all perfect!
Thank you so much!

David M - 8.5.22

Vari, we had a great time. Rob did a fantastic job 

Jack C – 20.5.22

We did make it home safe and sound.  As before, we were very pleased with our itinerary.  Our one complaint is that we wish you could have ordered a little nicer weather for Tralee (lol). Our favorite place to stay was Heaton’s Guesthouse in Dingle.  Their breakfast with fresh baked scones and croissants was out of this world and our room overlooked the Atlantic. Perryville House in Kinsale was also a favorite place to stay. The room was very nice, breakfast was delicious and Andrew was very welcoming.  Again, the location across the street from the harbor was wonderful. Vaughan Lodge in Lahinch was also very nice with a room that overlooked the golf course and a view of the ocean. The location in Killarney International House was great, but because they also cater to large tour groups, we had to pick a set time for breakfast.  When I am on vacation, I prefer a little more flexibility. Golf courses were a great choice.  Bill’s only really complaint is that some of the other golfers in his groups did not hire their own caddy and relied on his caddy to give them yardage information.  He was not sure of the best way to be politically correct and express his concern over this matter. Patrick, our driver, was wonderful. He was willing to take us to sites he thought we would enjoy, as well as other sites we were interested in seeing.  He was very personable and easy to get along with. We will definitely book with Hidden Links again. You definitely provide top notch, A+ service.

Patty and Bill K – 15.5.22

We had a great trip, despite some horrible weather (especially at Lehinch) and the illness of one of our group which forced him to return to the states for medical attention just 3 days into the trip.

James M – 13.5.22

Thank you Vari. I made it home late last night and now back to reality!  The trip was terrific, and you and your team were all great.  We’ll definitely be in touch for the next one.

Doug V – 14.5.22

I can’t thank Vari and Michelle enough for all their help with our trip. It was unbelievable. We had the time of our lives and are already talking about the next one (which we will definitely need help planning!). 

John O – 14.5.22

Thanks for everything!  It was awesome to do a vacation with my brother in Ireland. You are all brilliant!

Robert D – 16.5.22

The trip was great, we all had a great time. The golf courses were all fantastic as well as the accommodations that you set up for us. The transportation also was excellent. We had two drivers and they were both good but the first one was exceptionally good. When you get a chance send me some other possible golf course packages that could be put together for a future trip. 

Brian M – 22.5.22

Thank you so much for all your assistance on the trip. From the golf to getting our Covid tests, everything was so well organized and first class. Also, I appreciate all the timely communications with the postponements and changes. The trip was awesome. We had such a good time. Exceeded my expectations. We will definitely do it again in a few years. 

John K – 22.5.22

We had a wonderful time and the accommodations and golf at Doonbeg & Adare were exceptional. The Dromoland course is under a 4 million dollar renovation so you may want to be aware for future clients. Thanks for organizing the trip. We were happy it finally happened after 2 years of waiting thanks to COVID. 

Cheryl H – 23.5.22

A quick note of thanks for all the arrangements for our trip.  We are back at the Shannon airport ready to return home and want you to know that the trip was terrific in every way. Even the weather cooperated! We loved each golf course and were very pleased to spend an evening at Old Head.  What an amazing setting. I will certainly provide more feedback if you’d like but I just wanted to say thank you for putting this together for us!!

Stephen G – 24.5.22

Just a quick note to say thanks for helping put together a great  trip. Your team at Hidden Links did a fantastic job planning the trip, helping with all our requests along the way. The golf was amazing and provided a lifetime of memories. The west/northwest of Ireland provides some true hidden gems for the links novice. The staff at all the courses were so welcoming. I cannot recommend using caddies enough. The local knowledge they provided us prior to shots was so valuable and saved us many a golf ball. The caddie's made the rounds so enjoyable and the conversation they provided gave us a lifetime of new golf expressions, which we'll be repeating till the grave.
I would definitely plan our next trip with Hidden Links and hopefully won't have to wait too long to start the process.

Michael P – 24.5.22

Trip was great and am glad to be home. We’ll certainly use Hidden Links in the future. Only hiccup was the caddie issue. John got caddies for 4 of the 6 rounds. We had no problems at Portrush or County Down.  Hotel rooms, for some, at Portrush Atlantic and Donard were on the questionable side, quite run down. If you read the recent Trip Advisor reviews for example you’ll see some pretty poor reviews. That said, we didn’t spend a lot of time on the rooms. Our bus driver Darragh did a real good job. Got the requested booze, had it on ice each day, loaded our clubs from clubhouse to bus each day, was on-time, etc., no issues. Anyways, great trip. Will probably look to book Scotland next and already have a proposed itinerary sent by Hidden Links a couple weeks back. 
Thanks for everything, reaching out to see how things went. 

Sean – 24.5.22

We just returned from our Ireland Trip and wanted to thank you and the entire team for a flawless vacation. Nice work. I will keep Hidden LInks in mind for future golf trips.  A job well done.

Martin L – 25.5.22

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful trip my brother Tommy and I enjoyed last week. The planning was executed flawlessly and the timings were spot on. We even experienced some unseasonably mild weather which of course you get full credit for. I especially appreciate your responsiveness throughout the two year planning and rebooking due to Covid and your quick fix during our tour regarding the hotel in Ennis. I have long thought that the greatest value delivered by Tour agencies particularly in Ireland is the selection of the right professional driver/guide. I have been the leader for a half dozen tours in Ireland and Scotland and I must tell you that on last week's journey Caroline Barrett was the best guide, companion, and driver I have had, perfectly chosen for our small group tour. She is very knowledgeable as to Irish history and things to do away from the golf course. She was fun to be with, alert to our needs, and right on time if not early each and every day. She was flexible and provided us with the best day, away from golf, around the Dingle Peninsula perfectly timed as the weather changed. Further our wives joined us for the last couple of days and they loved her. She created a lovely tour for them while we played Lahinch that they are still raving about. I would highly recommend her for smaller tours both golf oriented or culture tours. Please reiterate our sincere thanks. I look forward to planning another tour with Hidden Links. I am already hoping for  a tour of the Northwest. 

Andy P – 28.5.22

Just wanted to say thank you for help with the trip. We all had a wonderful time in Ireland. I will recommend Hidden Links to friends and hope to be back to Ireland sometime soon

Jay S – 29.5.22

All four of us, I think, agree the trip went very well, both logistically and from the quality of experience.  That only ~20 minutes of rain fell over the 5 rounds of golf was 'icing on the cake'. Vari and Michelle were key in making the success that it was, plus the patience of all over the past 2 1/2 years! Hopefully we'll have a chance to talk again. 

Brian R – 30.5.22

Mary and I were delayed a full day returning to Canada due to a flight delay but we got home safe last night without our luggage. We got a good sleep and now I am happy to let you know about our Hidden Links Tour experience, Your services and organization for our trip were outstanding. It was the best tour experience we have ever had. We will highly recommend your services to anyone interested in going to Ireland for golf. We loved the entire trip and found the driving portion to be well thought out. The highlight accommodation stay was in Kinsdale at "Perryville House" and then "Kilarney Lodge". The golf course selections were prefect. "Old Head" was a course I knew nothing about and we were so glad you included it as it is one not to be missed. The weather was difficult with lots of wind and some rain but that is beyond anyones control. It does not deter us from wanting to return back to golf the northern half of Ireland within the next couple of years. Should I expect a trip to northern Ireland costs be like what we had? We like to plan to return to the wonderful land of Ireland and its wonderful people.

Doug B – 30.5.22

Dear Vari and Michelle, thank you all that you did to make our trip a success. We very much enjoyed every aspect of the trip. I do want to say a word about our driver, Paul Moriarty. He was a terrific tour guide and host. Simply stated, he is a good man and all of us feel like we have made a friend for life. I just wanted to say a special word because we all know how difficult it is to find good people to help with our businesses these days. Paul made the trip all the more special. Thanks again for all your help. We are already talking about a return trip in 2024. We will be in touch.

Paul H – 31.5.22

I'd like to extend my sincerest thanks in the great job your team did in setting up our trip, we enjoyed every second of it. The hotels were great, especially the Killarney Lodge, and the courses were set up very well with regards to travel distance. We had a fantastic time (even though the golf was exceedingly hard), and it was a trip all of us will remember forever. I know you and your team have been through a lot these past couple of years, and under the circumstances we couldn't have had a better time. If I plan on doing another trip, or if someone needs a recommendation, Hidden Links will be the first place that comes to mind. Thanks again for all the hard work.

Nate B – 2.6.22

It was truly memorable! We are very interested in a repeat or a Scottish version of this, understanding the lead time for getting the best courses and hotels. We will be discussing in the coming weeks to see what might work. Just need to coordinate somethings with my wife on the dates in 2023 or 2024. BTW: Love our driver Anthony….need to put in a request for him if we come back to Ireland.  Our course rankings as a weighted average of the group for what it is worth were: Lahinch (25 yrs ago it was number 2 but the changes have elevated it) Royal County Down Waterville Tralee Portrush Old Head Hogs Head Ballybunion (surprisingly)   Be in touch later this spring or summer!

Stephen K – 3.6.22

Thanks for organizing a wonderful trip . Everything from beginning to end was superb. The weather was a little suspect. Seriously, as you know, the weather was spectacular .Dan Joe was excellent as well. 

Ray L – 3.6.22

Had a great time, and they are ready to do it again next year.

Tad F – 3.6.22

Vari and Michelle....At the airport getting ready to leave your beautiful country...We all had a great time...the golf courses were the best...Hotels were good too...Dominic our driver all week was the best...very good to work with.... and thank you two for putting together the best trip yet...Only the best in the future.

John C – 4.6.22

Thank you, Vari. It was the trip of a lifetime, and we couldn't be more happy to have worked with Hidden Links.

Zach M – 6.6.22

We had a very nice trip. Everything worked out as planned

Kevin C – 9.6.22

I've never drank so much Irish whiskey in my life. Your restaurant recommendations have been great.  The hotels have been excellent so far.  Congratulations to the Hidden Links team. The golf courses have been spectacular.  

Steve C – 11.6.22

Hi!!  Wanted to shoot you a note to say thank you for our trip. We had zero problems!  Everything was great-hotel, meals, golf!! Just spectacular course. So glad we got to play Adare. What a place!!  And Paul was as good a driver as could be expected. Great guy and very helpful just about 24/7! Next trip- Scotland. I’ll be in touch to discuss this at some point. Thinking 2024!!! Awesome trip!! Thanks again!!

Jim K – 13.6.22

Michelle, We had a great trip….very pleased we had the chance to meet you in person….big thank you to your entire team….especially Vari who had to put up with all my emails……and Kelly who gave some good restaurant options ! Also want to point out how much we enjoyed our driver Martin …really good guy. Yes will definitely look to work with you on our next golf trip and happy to recommend you to all of my friends.

Scott B – 14.6.22

We had a wonderful trip. Thank you and all the people at Hidden Links for making it happen. 

Melamed – 15.6.22

Thank you Vari! As you may know we have worked with HL several times over the past 20 years... Everything was great and we look forward to working with toy again! Trip was great! I will reach out to book our next one soon!

Matt – 15.6.22

We wanted to thank you for arranging our amazing Ireland vacation.  Everything was great-the hotels, the golf and traveling around the beautiful country!  We greatly appreciate all of the work that was put into making our vacation memorable. We will definitely use Hidden Links again in the near future and will highly recommend your services to all of our friends.

Lynn & Steve D– 16.6.22

Thank you Vari, Michelle and many others there at Hidden Links.  Please share our thanks to all. The trip was exactly as I had hoped. We were all still smiling and laughing yesterday morning before departure. Once again genuine Irish hospitality was everywhere we visited every day. All accommodations and golf arrangements were perfect. You even managed to give us perfect weather the entire time. 

Maguire – 16.6.22

We had a great time. Thanks for everything including the great weather.

Marion – 17.6.22

Thank you for arranging our trip.  Everyone had an excellent time and were stunned by the quality of the 5 golf courses. The caddies were great except at Waterville, where most of us had to carry our own bags and the two caddies we did have were young and not very good.That was a minor inconvenience. Weather was great all week. Staying in Killarney was a good choice and the hotel was excellent.I was surprised at how hard it was to find a bar that played Irish music! LOL. Most bars would play one song then sing several American Country Western songs, but it was fun.Food was very good, much better than some including me expected. I’d say overall Foley’s was my favorite. We hope to return soon and the only change we would make would be to substitute Lahinch and Ballybunion for Adare and Waterville. And maybe play nine holes on day of arrival. If you have another course(s) in the area of the same quality that we should consider please let us know.

David B – 18.6.22

We had a perfect time. We debated several times what we would change to make the trip better but could not come up with anything. As an added bonus the US cancelled the covid testing requirement while we there so it was even better. Thank again 

David H– 18.6.22

The trip was great. Everything was very smooth! Our driver Caroline was EXCELLENT! Best driver we ever had. Her recommendations for meals were spot on and her recommended departure times were perfect! Thank you again for everything!

Dan C – 18.6.22

Wonderful trip indeed. A memorable trip for my grandson. All are safely home. Thanks for all your help. Use me as a reference if you ever need to. This might be my last golf trip to Ireland, but you could get a future tour from the next generation.

John H – 19.6.22

We wanted to thank you for the most wonderful trip to Ireland!!!. It was our first golf trip to Ireland and we had been planning this with Wayne and Susie since 2019. The pandemic hit and our plans changed but you were there every step of the way to make sure all our golf and accommodations were going to be available and rebooked twice. Your tireless commitment to your customers is unrivaled!  Every question we had, was easily answered on our customer travel portal on your website with links that brought the trip and planning alive for us. When our flight was delayed and we missed our connection to Shannon, you ensured our driver would be there even though he had already driven the other half of our party the two hours to the B&B and  it would be near midnight before we arrived at the Perryville House! You worked tirelessly to track down our lost bags and return them to us. It was extra special to meet Michelle in person at Tralee!! Every golf course was ready for us and the caddies were great! All accommodations were excellent and comfortable. Big breakfasts every morning were delicious and fueled us for the day of golf! Our driver Eugene O'Sullivan was a delight and added the extra local information that made our sightseeing even more insightful. We are telling everyone we know about your great customer service oriented company and your commitment to excellence. No doubt the exceptional customer service you and the organization provided is everyday with you, we definitely recognized the extra effort! Thanks for all you do!  We will be back.

Mary S – 19.6.22

We had a wonderful time.  3 years of planning went off without a hitch.  All of the accommodations were fantastic and Con was a great addition to the group as the Driver. Hope to book more Tours in the future and I know Steve already has Scotland in the works with you.

Marc K – 20.6.22

Thanks for everything. Courses and weather were great. I’m curious if there is nicer accommodations near port rush. People and location were great. I wonder if there was a place with a nicer Room and spa (or don’t even mention the spa since it was a little misleading). The brooks location was amazing. Bar and rooms and staff were great. Breakfast could be better. Eggs were bland. Crepes were nice but not filling. If someone asked I would definitely recommend using Hidden Links.

Mitch L – 20.6.22

We are having an amazing trip so far. Everything has been flawless - and we definitely lucked out with the weather! Thanks for all your incredible planning.

Jeff L – 21.6.22

Fantastic trip. Smooth and highly enjoyable.  Thanks very much. 

Jim M - 21.6.22

We had an amazing trip! Arrived home yesterday with no issues, everything worked like clockwork throughout our entire trip. We will never forget the beauty of Ireland, the caliber of the golf courses and the warmth of the people. Thanks so much for your expertise, patience and resilience over the past 3 years in finally making this trip happen. It was a trip of a lifetime for us.


We had an excellent trip. Everything was perfect. Thank you so much for organizing a fantastic trip for us. Our driver Rob was A+ as well. Kept us on time and was great to work with. 

Mike T– 23.6.22

Thank you for another great trip! I know this year was especially challenging. You guys did a great job handling the flight cancellation and the issues it caused. Everyone loved the trip, courses and hotels. Andy and I are already planning our 2024 trip to St. Andrews!

Uel K – 25.6.22

We had a trip of a lifetime. Thank you for setting everything up. Our drivers were excellent. Our main driver Tommy was outstanding. He not only made sure we met our tee times but also went beyond in making sure we experienced Ireland. I am also glad we used caddies and would recommend it to others playing links courses. I definitely will be using Hidden Links for my next golfing trip. Hopefully back to Ireland!! 

Rob G – 27.6.22

We enjoyed our trip, and everything Hidden Links did for us. The weather turned out great, and each course provided its own challenges and rewards. Donal was a very efficient and accommodating driver, along with his two buds that subbed in on the two occasions, and the hotel accommodations were most enjoyable. As far as the future goes, Hidden Links remains our first draft choice for arranging future Tours, although Braveheart 2023 will not be one of them. One of the group has been pleading with the boys to let him host us at his vacation home in Arizona, and surrounding home courses, and we have agreed to take him up on it. We will come back to you for 2024, and hopefully the World’s at peace, and healthy. That said, the best endorsement of any business is the referral’s that follow, and rest assured we will share our recent Irish experience with anyone that can stand listening to our stories again, and again, and make sure they know who put it together, and how to reach you. My thanks again, to you and Michelle for all your work and assistance that began so long ago, and finally became a reality. Until 2024 then…

Randy C – 27.6.22

We had a fantastic time!  Everything was extremely well done, from the courses to the hotels to the bus.  We definitely will plan to connect with you again for future plans.

Whit G – 27.6.22

Trip was great, well planned, and Mike was a real plus. Feel like he’s part of our family(. Please tell him the time we left Atlanta heading home, we pulled it up and were all glad Kerry best much hated Mayo in Sundays Irish Football match).Didn’t realize you were/ are such accomplished golfers!!! As always, will recommend Hidden Links to everyone and already thinking about planning our next trip.

Tat T – 27.6.22

We had a fantastic tour. I will be planning another in the future.

Brian W – 27.6.22

Thanks so much! Great time! Everything was perfect on your end, could not have been better!
You guys did a terrific job! We will definitely use you again. We are already talking about it … probably a Scotland trip! Awesome!!!

John E – 27.6.22

We had a great time with the highlight being the day we played Ardglass in a 50 mph wind. No one kept score as the challenge was to just finish! It was a hoot for us all. The weather was a challenge as the wind was a factor everywhere. However, we enjoyed the journey and we were really happy with our bus driver. He was a great driver but also a great person that made all of us happy he was with us!

Harvey C – 29.6.22

We had a wonderful trip. Many highlights and only a few things that could have gone better but only if I was to be extremely picky. One final issue though. My wife’s and my golf clubs are still in Dublin airport! Working with the airline now to get them back. Using Hidden Links has been great. 

Ken K – 29.6.22

Despite a couple of days of rain, the trip was amazing. We had some absolutely beautiful weather to start the trip and even the rainy days weren’t too bad, well maybe except the golf at Dooks. 1 person aggravated an old injury and went to the bar after 2 holes, my foursome called it quits after 7 holes, one other quit after 8 and two brave souls made it all 18. All 5 courses were incredible…the people, the caddies and even other golfers. Hindsight if I were to do the same trip I probably would add a 6th round of golf and do something like: golf two days, day off, golf two days, day off, golf two day and then head home the next day. Two days off in a row for those golfing was too much, lol. Our driver Mike (Michael) was great…big bus on very narrow roads and he handled them amazingly. Always on time for pickup, actually always early and made sure we got to where we needed to. Thanks again for your help setting this all up.

Keith M – 29.6.22

We had a fantastic time and will definitely  refer you guys out and use your services again in the future.   Martin our driver was great, lodging was great and courses were top notch. Hopefully next time we will get good weather.

Adam J – 2.7.22

Thank you so much! This trip was AMAZING! The accommodations, our driver, the courses all outstanding! Hidden Links could not have arranged a better itinerary! We are looking forward to booking our next trip with you

Lauri W – 5.7.22

The group and myself declared that this recent trip to lovely Ireland was our best one ever. So many reasons for this, but safe to say that the Hidden Links team was definitely on that list! Special note that our driver Joe was superb. Professional, punctual, fun loving, and our group felt like he was a big part of the journey indeed. We look forward to future trips to your wonderful country using Hidden Links once again.

Brian G – 5.7.22

We all enjoyed our trip and appreciate all the planning on your end.

Charles H – 5.7.22

We had a great trip and look forward to working with you in the future.

John C – 5.7.22

Incredible trip. You all do a wonderful job. Not a single hiccup!

Mike E – 10.7.22

The trip was fabulous and we had no issues anywhere we went.  Thank you for putting everything together to make the trip a wonderful experience!

David G – 10.7.22

Thank you for the kind note. We had a tremendous time and are so grateful to everyone at Hidden Links who helped us. Hopefully we can put together another outing in the future!

Dave L – 11.7.22

It was a wonderful trip!!...all worked perfectly to plan...other than Kyle not having clubs for 3 days...but thanks for the help in getting them to the right spot.  You and the whole team did a great job and I will highly recommend Hidden Links to all my friends that are heading to Ireland.

Paul M – 11.7.22

Our trip was great and our Kerry Coach driver Sean Houlihan was absolutely the best!

Rick C 11.7.22

All of us had a great time.  It was very special: the courses, the country, and the people.  Okay, we liked the whiskey and Guinness as well!  All of you did a great job.  I am glad that I got to meet Michelle.  We will most certainly recommend Hidden Links to anyone who asks for a recommendation.

Richard E – 17.7.22

Our trip was wonderful from itinerary, to driver (John FitzGerald), to lodging, and especially the golf and weather! It exceeded our expectations, and our expectations were high. I have already recommended Hidden Links to several others. Thank you for a very professional job, especially with all of the issues in 2021. Vari and Michelle both represented the best of Hidden Links and I am very appreciative. I plan on returning to Ireland (a beautiful and friendly country) to play more golf and enjoy more of the country. When I do, my first call will be Hidden Links.

Dwayne B – 17.7.22

Thanks guys - it was wonderful. Just a side note for golf crazy folks definitely recommend playing the short course at RCD. It was wonderful and I’m almost same condition. Walking 36 in a day was tough but so worth it. Share with some of your crazy golf folks. Thanks again it was great. 

Billy H 22.7.22

I would like to thank you all as we had a great time. Caroline was a pleasure and the accommodations were really nice. I'll be in touch to talk about maybe a trip to Scotland or someplace else!

Buzz J – 22.7.22

We’re back from Ireland and for the 3d time with Hidden Links,  everything was perfect --  even the weather!!    The Driver (Willy) was excellent. I think the group may be interested in a trip to  Scotland (west side courses (Turnberry, etc. plus Old Course and Muirfield) next year.  What could you arrange for our foursome there?  Same basic time of year (about 3d week in July).

Dick W 24.7.22

Overall we had a great time, even without luggage! It eventually caught up with us on Friday night. We thank you for making all the accommodation and golf arrangements. I thought I would give you some feedback. CAR - excellent Volvo although we could not get the GPS to work properly - it did not recognise towns like Connemara. When we returned car to Hertz at Shannon the man said we should get a partial refund. Could you enquire on our behalf? Even when we picked it up in Dublin the Hertz man did not know how to make it work. HOTELS - both excellent, although in Killarney having to use a park and display public car park was a bit inconvenient, particularly in the morning when I had to pay for a new ticket. Staff at both hotels were first rate, very helpful and good fun. Would particularly like to commend a lady called Jane at reception at Killarney International. GOLF - we thoroughly enjoyed Dooks, great fun and the staff in the pro shop could not have been more helpful. Connemara is obviously a good course but, on reflection, the long drive to and from was not such a good idea. As I say, all in all, we had a great visit to Ireland and would have no hesitation in recommending Hidden Links.

Brian L – 24.7.22

We had a great time.  Sadly the weather didn’t cooperate at Old Head. My only change to the trip would be to start in the Killarney area and then proceed north and finish at Lahinch/Doonbeg--which would have put us closer to the airport. Thanks again.  If we do another trip, I’ll reach out to you.

Jeff D – 25.7.22

Incredible trip.  Thank you all so much!

Don S – 25.7.22

Great trip!  Thanks for making it so easy for us.  Enjoyed working with Hidden Links again and look forward to another one.

Mike Wilson – 25.7.22

What a pleasure it was with your help, of course. Everything went without a hitch except for the weather in Saturday’s round!

Clarence S – 25.7.22

It's been a little over a month since we get back from our trip and we still can't get over what a great time we had. The entire Hidden Golf team made the trip stress free. Michelle was outstanding in dealing with all of our changes, including American Airlines cancelling our flight to Shannon. Mike our driver was tremendous from making we arrived at the courses on time to making our dinner reservation every night. He was the best. Thanks again for all of your efforts and we can't wait to book our next trip.

Pat M – 26.7

We enjoyed the trip immensely. Country is beautiful. The golf courses spectacular. The accommodations excellent. The people welcoming. This is the 4th trip I have been on that was planned by hidden links. Each well managed in detail and recommendations. Thank you for all you do. I will see you again.

Randy S – 26.7.22

Our trip was the best! Everything about it was delightful, including the weather, which can never be planned. Everything happened without any snags, including our plane schedules and luggage arrival! Thanks for all your hard work in making this happen and all your attention to the details. We really appreciate your service. Now to plan the next trip!

Martha – 28.7.22

Thank you to the Hidden Links team.  We had a wonderful trip.  Logistics were flawless.  Golf venues and hotels were first class.  The tour was perfect amount of golf and non-golf so it worked well for the guys (golfers) and gals (non-golfers).  I’d say we ended up doing everything we wanted.  Weather, except for one day, was pretty much ideal, but it wouldn’t be an appropriate trip to Ireland without having to put on rain gear at least once! (It rained at Ardglass). It’s worth emphasizing what an outstanding job our driver Charlie did.  He was especially great about looking after the ladies and they all loved him.  I understand that all the ladies have shared photos with Charlie and vice versa.  I think he’s part of the family and probably on the Christmas card list too! Royal County Down was the favorite for all of us – even though the wind was blowing hard (2-3 clubs all day).  Miraculously, even though wind normally eats me up, I had my best round in a long time:  78 and was even on back nine. Thanks again for organizing a great trip and helping us survive the Covid go/no-go challenges.  Maybe we’ll try again when we celebrate turning 70 in 2031.

Dennis S – 30.7.22

This is our 3rd time working w HL and was our best trip yet! Thank you for working through this trip over the past 2-3 years….well worth it from where I sit!

Matt B – 31.7.22

Thank you very much. We all had a wonderful time and will gladly recommend Hidden Links to all our friends. It took a long time from start to finish due to Covid but everything went extremely well. I would also like to say that our driver from Kerry Coaches, William O’Neill (Willie) made our trip! He was extremely knowledgeable about Ireland and punctual in every exchange. If and when I return it would almost be a necessity, god willing, to have Willie as our driver.

Wesley H – 31.7.22

The trip was amazing and met every expectation for us! We are looking forward to our Scotland trip with you next year. Also, our driver Brenton was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and super helpful! Thank you. 

Drew D – 21.8.22

First of all I would like to thank you and Michelle for working with us for 3 years to make our 2022 trip to Ireland such a great success. Though there were issues relating to Covid the trip was well worth the wait. I would like to compliment Willie O'Neil on his professionalism and his great concern to ensure that our trip was a success. He also was able to give us a bit of Irish history as we drove to various places in Ireland. So overall our trip was an 11 out of 10. Congratulations to you and the Hidden Links team that made this trip possible.

Paul K

Just wanted to send an email and thank you and the team at Hidden Links for our recent trip to Scotland. Everything went smoothly and we could not have asked for it to be any better, tee times were exactly as scheduled, courses played were great, even the transportation arranged could not have been better. The drivers were on time or early and got us to our destination ahead of schedule. I will be checking with Hidden Links on any future golf trips and would have no hesitation recommending Hidden Links to anyone.

Thank you Vari, Michelle and many others there at Hidden Links. Please share our thanks to all. The trip was exactly as I had hoped. We were all still smiling and laughing yesterday morning before departure. Once again genuine Irish hospitality was everywhere we visited every day. All accommodations and golf arrangements were perfect. You even managed to give us perfect weather the entire time.

Maguire, 6-16-2022

Just a quick note to say thanks for helping put together a great trip. Your team at Hidden Links did a fantastic job planning the trip, helping with all our requests along the way. The golf was amazing and provided a lifetime of memories. The west/northwest of Ireland provides some true hidden gems for the links novice. The staff at all the courses were so welcoming. I cannot recommend using caddies enough. The local knowledge they provided us prior to shots was so valuable and saved us many a golf ball. The caddie's made the rounds so enjoyable and the conversation they provided gave us a lifetime of new golf expressions, which we'll be repeating till the grave. I would definitely plan our next trip with Hidden Links and hopefully won't have to wait too long to start the process.

Michael P, 5-24-2022

The trip was great, we all had a great time. The golf courses were all fantastic as well as the accommodations that you set up for us. The transportation also was excellent. We had two drivers and they were both good but the first one was exceptionally good. When you get a chance send me some other possible golf course packages that could be put together for a future trip. Thanks again for all your help with this trip.

Brian M, 5-22-2022

Thanks so much Vari and everyone else that helped us out. Everything was perfect. We couldn’t have been happier or had more fun. Next time we come to Ireland we will reach back out!

Bill K, 6-5-2022

Vari and Michelle, thank you for all your help with this trip over the past couple of years. We had a great time. All of the guys commented on how much they liked the hotel and motor coach accommodations. The golf was amazing. Just a great trip all around. Maybe Scotland in 3 or 4 years. Thanks again. Have a great rest of the summer.

Peter S – 31.7.22

We enjoyed our trip so much. The Perrville House in Kinsale was worth another trip just to stay there again!  What an absolutely lovely place.  Thanks so much for scheduling us there. And the Brooks hotel in Dublin was right in the middle of things.  Everything we wanted to do was within a few minutes’ walk.  So centrally located.  The only fly in the ointment was that all the foodie restaurants in Kinsale were closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. What a laugh. We went to Kinsale for the food and were shut out. Lol!  Might remember that for future reference.  But we had a fabulous time there.  The town was so interesting and the people were so nice.  Oh, and I can’t forget Breffni – he was fabulous.  Plus, with him living in Kinsale, he was able to give us some great inside info on the town – and he managed to get us into Old Head for lunch on our arrival afternoon.  Jennifer is ready to sign up to go play!  Such a beautiful property.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know what a great job you did with our extension trip.  The golf trip was fabulous as always, but this was different and wonderful.

Brent C – 1.8.22

We had a great trip! Courses, accommodations, service, transportation and food were all great! Thank you so much!

Brent D – 1.8.22

We had an awesome trip! Everything was excellent. Many thanks!

Sachin S – 1.8.22

It was amazing! We even got very lucky with the weather!  Thank you so much for planning such a great trip for us. The hotels were fabulous and pat did a great job driving us everywhere.

Tara B – 1.8.22

We had an absolute blast on our trip. Was amazing. Thank you and the team for all your work on our excursion. Each guy said that it was the best golf trip they had ever been on. A ton of that was due to the schedule that you put together for us. Thank you! Cant wait to come back.  Ill be in touch to build the next adventure!

Al D – 2.8.22

The weather was interesting but I loved it. Great trip as always and thanks for everything. 

Robert T – 3.8.22

Thank you again for a wonderful trip to Ireland. Everything was perfect. The Hotels were great and reservations were in order. All planned activities went off without a hitch. I can’t say enough about our driver Neil  He could not have been better. He went out of his way on several occasions to make our trip better. Once again it was nice working with everyone in Hidden Links and I hope to contact you soon for a Northern Ireland golf trip.

Hugh D – 3.8.22

We had a wonderful time, and all went smoothly, including flights (except for one broken driver, which was repaired rapidly by Royal County Down).  Accommodations were great.  The golf courses were as good as advertised. We had caddies as requested. Our driver, Paddy, was a highlight of the trip and gets our highest recommendation.  He was always thinking ahead and adjusting restaurant times, tee times, etc. He added a guided tour in Belfast for us to understand the Troubles, very informative.  We especially liked Aldo’s (Castlerock), Fade Street Social and Rustic Stone (switched from something in Portmarnock).  The one spot we would not recommend was The Quays, although it was quintessential Irish fare, just not our favorite. Thanks for all your efforts for us and please share our comments with other HL staff. Hope to work with you another time!

Bahns S – 6.8.22

All in, our group had a wonderful trip. Our driver Derry was great. Golf was great. Although we may want look at other courses for our next trip and more free time for touring. We also appreciated you always answering the phone when we needed assistance! The only negative comments I received from the group we’re about the The Grand Hotel related to the rooms not having air conditioning and no view of the water. We will definitely reach out to you and Hidden Links for assistance with our future trips. 

Mike D – 7.8.22

Trip was outstanding…we had a great time, hotels and courses were awesome and there were no issues whatsoever…..just trying to figure out how to justify our next trip (as it is a challenge leaving my wife and daughter out….they’ll start to complain). We also enjoyed the company of the two couples from North Carolina – who mentioned that they have worked with you folks a few times. Will definitely recommend your company to anyone that asks.

Gary C – 8.8.22

Our trip was fantastic. Thank you so much!!

Kyle S – 8.8.22

We had a great time. All accommodations were good. Our driver, Tommy, was fantastic. Thanks for everything.

Ben H – 9.8.22

Wanted to thank you for all your help and flexibility while on the trip.  We had such a wonderful time and the Hidden Links service was top notch - so thank you! One small gripe and not on Hidden Links but more on Royal Portrush.  We didn’t get to finish that round, we teed off late and were trending for a 6 hour round and the group in front of us was very slow, so we made the unfortunate decision to get off the course after 13 so we could get dinner.  It happens but wanted to let you know. Also, one more item in helping groups plan is that in Northern Ireland- Belfast in particular we could not get any food post 9pm, nearly all restaurants stop food at 9, no problem getting pints but ran into the food issue on a few occasions since we had later tee times.  Just something to remind groups of. Other than that, you guys were awesome and already thinking about 2027, Scotland or England is on the mind, make a note and let’s start planning in 2025!

Gregg G – 11.8.22

Trip was fabulous!!   The accommodations, the golf…the weather…just Brilliant!

Tom H – 13.8.22

OMG .. it was the BEST trip I ever had!! Ye all were amazing (you see how I used Ye in that sentence – not sure if it was used correctly.. but I tried). Besides the amazing golf, I have to say that Sean Houlihan was the absolute best driver for the week.. Sooo much fun and knowledgeable about the Irish culture. I don’t think the trip would have been nearly as enjoyable if he wasn’t our driver. He was incredibly accommodating to anything we wanted whether it was food , or drinks for the bus or just telling us about the scenery we were seeing and the importance to the culture. Whatever you do, make sure you hang on to that connection with Kerry coaches and Sean in particular. He also took us to the puck fair which was a very cool part of the culture.. a bit crazy, but then again we left early before all the real craziness began! While it was two years in the making, it was worth it.. and I really appreciate the fact that that you all dialed up the weather to be 85 and sunny all week!! Who says it rains in Ireland? The homes were also super comfortable and walking distance to Killarney which was a gem of a town! We really immersed ourselves in the culture every night. I am recommending your team to anyone that is looking for Ireland trips! I will also be coming back in 2024 or 2025.. looking for a different experience in Northern Ireland.

Tony P – 16.8.22

Thanks for the message and the outstanding trip!  Everything was really well organized and the golf was off the charts fantastic.  We really appreciate the responsiveness of Hidden Links...well done!

Stephen N 16.8.22

We couldn’t have asked for better weather and the courses and caddies were great.

Dave S – 17.8.22

Thank you for your help creating a great golf adventure. 

Trish and Larry H – 17.8.22

We couldn't have been happier with the arrangements that your team made!  We of course wish we had the second night in Kinsale, but appreciate that you were able to rearrange the tee time so that we got to play Old Head - even sleep deprived, it was amazing.  We particularly liked the every-other-day golf and wanted you to know that we recommend it to anyone who might ask.  We felt like we had the perfect amount of time between rounds to explore.  We didn't do all of the typical tourist things - so wanted to recommend Falconry Kerry if anyone should ask.  It was an hour experience and aside from the golf was one of the highlights- we didn't know what we were getting ourselves into completely before arriving, but it was amazing and different. Accommodations were great - the locations couldn't have been better. So our next question is - do you also organize trips to Northern Ireland and the northern part of Ireland? Thank you again for everything, particularly amending our Old Head time and the communication throughout.  It was an amazing experience!

Laura and Kevin Q 19.8.22

Thank you for all you did to organize our Ireland golf trip. The golf was outstanding as were the accommodations. Jim Morris, our driver, was very prompt and attentive. In case you don't know it, you live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The entire trip came off without a hitch, and all eight of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  I am already looking forward to our next trip.  Thank you.

Steve B 20.8.22

We all had a wonderful time. Thank you for everything and helping us through the past couple years to make it happen. Flawless trip for everyone the whole time. Mike our driver was awesome. Please let him know how much we appreciated him for all he did to make us feel at home. Look forward to our next trip and you all will be the first we call. 

Michael H – 21.8.22

Thank you and everyone at Hidden links that helped us book the trip and to all of the drivers that we had.  Everyone was so outstanding and so nice and made our trip a tremendous one. We already look forward to booking another trip in the future with you all.  

Brian – 22.8.22

We had nothing short of a magical experience and so glad it was finally pulled off and without any real issues. I don’t remember ordering perfect weather, but somehow we managed to get that too. I will be doing another one.

Chris C – 22.8.22

It was another fantastic trip with Hidden Links. Not one issue or problem the entire trip, everything went as smooth as I could have asked for. Tee times, caddies, accommodations were without any issues.  Our driver, Ian Moriarty, from Kerry Coaches, was the best driver we have had in our 7 trips with Hidden Links.   Great job getting us to our first tee time (which was tight thanks to the boys at the Dublin baggage handling – our flight arrived an hour early and we did not get our bags for 1:15 which made things tight for Ardglass) and the long drive and stop from PortStewart to Doonbeg.   Just an excellent driver, fun person and very attentive to our trip.   Please tell your friends at Kerry Coaches to retire the coach that we were in, it is definitely showing its age.We are looking forward to our next trip, hopefully next summer with our sons.   We will be in touch soon as I know the bookings are very strong for 2023 in Ireland.  Again, cannot say enough about Hidden Links and the Ireland team and I will keep recommending you to my friends for their trips to Ireland and Scotland.

John S – 22.8.22

We had a great time! Thanks for organizing the trip!

Bryan O – 22.8.22

Great trip, the trip was highlighted by Ron first hole in one. Ron made the “Ace” on the third hole at Tralee. Our caddy, John, was more excited than Ron. Great job to all at Hidden Links!!!

Mike P – 22.8.22

I / we wanted to thank you for the OUTSTANDING job you all did with our trip, we couldn't be happier. Each of the 11 days we were in and traveled through Ireland worked like a fine-tuned Swiss watch. Transportation  - Our bus driver / transportation overlord "Donal" was the absolute best. (Even better the Gary from our Scotland trip which is saying a lot!) He was friendly, personable, professional and punctual! Always willing to assist with whatever we needed including getting our beverage refills and snacks, you couldn't have had a better person representing Hidden Links out on the road! Golf - All the courses were great and a treat to play, although a couple, (Lahinch / Portmarnock) wouldn't be on a return trip itinerary  for me personally. We'll probably take a far less ambitious travel schedule our next trip and try to enjoy more the of country. For me and my "game" I'd  rank them as follows: Ballybunion, Old Head, Doonbeg, Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Tralee, Portstewart, Waterville, Portmarnock, and Lahinch. Lodging was what we needed but we were especially fond of Slieve Donard and Killarn House were by far our favorites! The made to order breakfasts and service at the Killarn House was top shelf! The restaurants you selected were awesome! The meals in Portrush and Killarney were just fantastic! Great variation and selections, and always fish and chips available as a fall back, we couldn't have been more pleased. One comment (not a complaint) was Kitty O'se's doesn't serve cocktails  (just beer and wine), luckily, we were able to "Guinness" through it just fine!
Thanks again for all your efforts on our behalf and we hope to see you in 2024!

Rusty T – 22.8.22

Thanks it was an incredible trip and you guys did great job with everything!

Tom W– 24.8.22

Everything turned out great and the golf and hotels were excellent. We got to meet Michelle which was really nice as well. We will definitely use Hidden Links a 3rd time if we do another overseas golf trip in the future.

Jim D – 28.8.22

The trip was FANTASTIC in so many ways.  All of the arrangements thru Hidden Links worked to a tee; from the car rental, to hotels to the courses themselves and the arrangements of carts and caddies. There was no hassle with any of it.  For future Northern Ireland trips, Hidden Links may want to consider a substitute for Castle Rock Golf Course and The Grand Hotel in Malahide. Castle Rock did not meet the very high standards of the other courses and The Grand Hotel rooms were very small and the bathrooms tiny, although the food and service was very good. All else, as I said, was FANTASTIC!!  If Hidden Links has a post-survey, please be sure to forward it. I would highly recommend your services to anyone. Thank you again for the superb handling of our needs.

Mark and Bob W 28.8.22

We had a terrific time, and you and the team did a wonderful job organizing it for us.  It was an unforgettable trip. Our driver, Jim Morris, was absolutely fantastic. I can't say enough good things about him. Please thank Kerry Coaches and Jim for helping make this a great family trip! We'll be working with all of you again. 

Jon M – 29.8.22

We had a wonderful time!! It couldn’t have been better! Thank you for putting all it together for us.

Jeff S – 29.8.22

Thank you for a great experience and coordination.  I speak for the group....you were outstanding.  Thank you.

Tracy F – 30.8.22

A big thank you to you guys!!!  The trip went off without a hitch.  The weather was perfect, had mist for a short time the 1st day and a 10 minute downpour the 2nd and that was it for rain.

It was very enjoyable to check in the rental car, hotels and golf courses not having to worry about payment.  Not 1 issue anywhere. Only hiccup we had was the 1st day the caddy put Carla’s putter in the wrong bag at the end of the round.  Luckily we were able to track him down and pick it up on our return to Ireland. Andy, I got away with wearing 1 pair of shoes the whole trip! We will definitely pass your name and contact information on to anyone we knowing going to Ireland or England.

Chip and Carla F – 31.8.22

We had an absolutely wonderful trip. Thank Michelle and the Hidden Links team for doing a great job. The golf, accommodations and hospitality were amazing. And special thanks to John, our driver and tour guide, who was a delight and made our trip even more enjoyable. We have already recommended you guys to other people. Thanks again.

Bobby W 31.8.22

Wanted to let you know that the group had a wonderful time touring Ireland!   Wonderful country... Wonderful people. Driver Sean, was great.  He did a super job!  Everyone enjoyed him. Will definitely return to Ireland, probably a golf trip.  We will make sure to contact you when the time comes.

Troy O – 1.9.22

We had a great time and appreciate all the effort you and your team put into making our trip special.

Walter K – 3.9.22

Our trip was amazing! We were not the easiest to work with I’m sorry to say, but you did cover all our bases beautifully and we had a fabulous trip! The different style of golf courses was especially enjoyed. Adare Manor…. Well it’s the nicest place we have ever stayed. We have stayed at some nice places we thought! The service was impeccable. Last but not least we Loved Breff! We wanted to take him away with us. Worth every dime and more. He was the icing on our Ireland trip. Thanks again.

Mary B – 3.9.22

On behalf of our entire group, please accept our heartfelt thanks to Michelle, Vari and your team for an excellent golf experience.  We recognize the staffing issues being felt in the hospitality industry worldwide and the corresponding effort on your behalf to ensure a successful experience. You delivered. The courses also delivered as did the restaurants. We had quite the variety of drivers but they all got us to our destination safely and on time.

Jeff H – 3.9.22

I had a great time. The golf courses and hotels were fantastic. Thank you for your help making this possible. Will definitely call on you for future trips.

Ed M – 3.9.22

Thank you Vari, we had a wonderful trip. Hidden Links again did a fantastic job.

Randy P – 4.9.22

The trip was a huge success.  Thank you for the support you provided.

Fred S – 4.9.22

We had a great time!  We have been going on annual golf buddy trips for thirteen years and this was likely the best ever. This was the third time using Hidden Links as our agent and hope to do so again in a couple of years when we go to England.

Steve H – 4.9.22

We had a wonderful trip! Beyond the golf, the weather was warm and sunny, our driver, Mick, was delightful and you and the Hidden links team extremely accommodating. 

Barbara R 4.9.22

Our golf trip was awesome!  The weather couldn't have been better.  It was a lot of driving but we did get to play some of the best courses in Ireland.  Might have done a few things differently if we had a chance but overall very satisfied.  By the way, our driver "Archie" was outstanding.  (I know you guys go through another company but it is worth acknowledging how great he did.)

Jimmy J 18.7.22

We had a great trip- thank you for organizing a perfect week and a perfect week of weather. We will be booking again with you.

Ryan S 19.7.22

Recently, I enjoyed a golf trip in Ireland with 15 other friends The trip was set up by my son through Hidden Links. Our arrangements included transportation with Kerry Coaches. The bus was wonderful, and, the courses were grand. Led by a gentleman who goes by the handle, “Seanny Mac”, the trip went off without a hitch. He knew everything about every venue, we were always on time, his driving skills over some challenging roads were quite impressive, and, he happened to be an extremely nice person, who went out of his way to help us all with whatever little problem we might have had - be it lost bags at the airport, a sprained ankle, or, in my case, lighting a candle for my recently deceased father, who loved Irish golf. This was my first experience in Ireland, and, it won’t be my last. With ambassadors like “Seanny Mac”, the future of Irish tourism seems unstoppable! Please, let this gentleman know of our gratitude.
