Hotel Location
Day 1:  Take an overnight flight to Ireland.  You will have six nights in Ireland with 5-star accommodations, a private chauffeur, golf and whiskey!
 
Day 2:  Your home base for this vacation will be the 5-star Heritage Golf and Spa Resort in Killenard, County Laois.  This lovely resort is situated about an hour and a half outside of Dublin.  You'll have a chauffeur who will be able to take you wherever you'd like to go.  Maybe an afternoon in Dublin to see Trinity College or Temple Bar!
 
Day 3:  The first whiskey tasting you will indulge in will be at the Tullamore Dew in Bury Quay.  This 19th century distillery offers tasting tours, a restaurant and a bar for visitors.  
 
Day 4:  Play a round of golf on-site at the resort’s course.  Follow it up with a whiskey tasting at the Kilbeggan Distillery in County Westmeath.  This historic property’s license to distil dates all the way back to 1757.  There is a restaurant, The Pantry Restaurant, a 19th century waterwheel in working condition and of course, delicious whiskey to taste!
 
Day 5:  Today, your chauffeur will take you to the European Club in County Wicklow, about two hours north, just outside of Dublin.  After your round of golf on this incredible course, you could spend the afternoon in Dublin!
 
Day 6:  The third and final whiskey tasting included in this vacation will be at the Old Midleton Distillery in Cork.  One of the most famous in Ireland, this distillery produces Jameson, a favorite in Ireland and across the globe.  Visit the Jameson Experience and learn the history of this delicious whiskey.  Finish your tour off with a taste test between Jameson whiskey, Scottish whisky and American whiskey and perhaps you will become a “Qualified Irish Whiskey Taster”.
 
Day 7:  The third round of golf included will be at the K Club in Kildare.  With your chauffeur, you can rest in the back seat the whole way there!  This historic golf club is built on the old grounds of the Straffan estate.  Both courses at the club were designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer.   
 
Day 8:  After six nights filled with the perfect pair, golf and whiskey, your chauffeur will take you to the airport for your return flight.

Testimonials

We wanted to see Ireland but were nervous about driving. Sceptre found our chauffeur, Pat, and he knew everything about the history and geography around us… he did a great job negotiating the hairpin curves on the Ring of Kerry. Can’t imagine a better vacation!
Anna M.

With Sceptre we were able to make a vacation that was really unique. We stayed in two castles, did some serious shopping, and spent a lot of time out in nature. One of the best things about Ireland is its beautiful scenery, and we were always exactly where we wanted to be.
