There are over 100 heritage and cultural sites of significance in the region and these sites cover many diverse aspects of Ireland's heritage and culture. Cork is the largest of all of the Irish counties and Cork City, the European Capital of Culture 2005, is Ireland's third city (after Dublin and Belfast) and is alive with the cultural richness of a truly modern city - annually featuring the world-renowned film and jazz festivals.

Ballybunion Golf Club - The Old Course Golf Packages
Par 71, yardage 6,651. The Old Course at Ballybunion is one of the most popular courses in the whole of Ireland. American visitors in particular just love the course and five-time Open Champion Tom Watson is a self-confessed fan of Ballybunion. Established in 1893, the course was extended to 18 holes in 1926. Due to the threat of coastal erosion - it is set in sandhills alongside the Atlantic Ocean - the order of the holes was changed in the early 1970s and you now actually start on the old 14th. Visitors to Ballybunion will undergo a stiff test from start to finish, with the 11th hole, in particular, being a potential card-wrecker. Visitors are welcome on weekdays, while a state-of-the-art clubhouse offers first-class facilities. Maximum handicap: 24 men, 30 women.
Ballybunion Golf Club - Cashen Course Golf Packages
Par 72, yardage 6,306. The 'second' course at Ballybunion was designed by Robert Trent Jones and is every bit as good as its big brother. There are some who go as far to say that the Cashen Course is even more dramatic and challenging than the Old Course. It certainly has higher dunes than the Old and some of the carries from the tee are demanding, to say the least. The Cashen Course finishes with two par-5s, the second of which stretches to a whopping 612 yards. The two courses share the same clubhouse and, as you'd expect at a place which is so well known all over the world, you can expect the warmest of welcomes at Ballybunion. Maximum handicap: 24 men, 30 women.
Tralee Golf Club Golf Packages
Par 71, yardage 6,799. The great Arnold Palmer was involved in designing Tralee Golf Club and, boy, is it a gem! Palmer had always wanted to design a course on the Emerald Isle and that chance came in the early 1980s, the American star working with Ed Seay to create this links masterpiece. There are some great holes on the course, notably the second, which runs along the clifftops, and the third, which has been likened to the famous seventh hole at Pebble Beach. Visitors can play at Tralee without restrictions during the week. On Saturday, they can only start between 11 AM and 1:30 PM while Sunday is out altogether. Maximum handicap: 28 men, 36 women.
Old Head Golf Links Golf Packages
Par 72, yardage 7,121. The incredible Old Head Golf Links, which is situated approx. 25 miles south of Kinsale in Co. Cork, is built on a 220-acre diamond of land which juts out over two miles into the Atlantic. The promontory is almost an island with numerous caves running beneath your feet as you play the course. The links and practice area occupy 180 acres and the remaining 40 acres of unspoiled cliff frame the course and rise in places to over 300 feet. With a minimum of six tees on every hole, the course provides a stern test to the touring pro and high handicapper alike. Nine holes play along the cliff tops, and all 18 holes provide stunning ocean views. Maximum handicap: 24 men, 36 women.
