Aer Lingus’ Gathering on the Green – luxury golfing vacations in Ireland
Five rounds of golf, a chauffeur, luxury boutique accommodations, full Irish breakfasts and more
Aer Lingus Vacation Store (ALVS) has introduced The Gathering on the Greens Collection, an assortment of above par golf vacations that include opportunities to play all of the beautiful and challenging courses for which Irish golf is legendary.
The Gathering on the Greens Collection has been developed to align with “The Gathering,” a year-long celebration during which Ireland and its people will welcome friends and family from around the world to visit and celebrate all things Irish.
Ciaran Barry, ALVS’ Director of Marketing, said “I’ve yet to meet a golfer who didn’t either rave about Irish golf or dream about someday playing its legendary courses.
“As Ireland extends its invitation to visit and celebrate all things Irish, Aer Lingus Vacation Store makes it easy to celebrate and experience the best of Irish golf with its Gathering on The Greens collection.”
The Gathering on the Greens Collection includes The Gathering on the Northern Greens, The Gathering on the Southern Greens, and the ultimate – a blend of both. These boutique tours provide a unique opportunity for groups of two, four or more to join other golf enthusiasts on some of the same championship courses that have challenged the game’s greatest players.
Barry added “The Gathering on the Greens escorted tours are ideal for golf buddies, couples, fathers and sons, your old college friends, colleagues, etc. And regardless of whether someone chooses the Southern tour, the Northern tour or a combination of the two, they’re certain to return home with cherished memories and stories to share for a lifetime; even if, like most good golf stories, there’s a wee bit of exaggeration involved.”
Each of the tours includes round-trip economy class air from New York City on Aer Lingus (additional gateways available), golf, accommodations, transportation via luxury coach with the services of an experienced professional chauffeur, all local taxes, hotel service charges & porterage for one suitcase and one golf bag per person. Caddies, carts, clubs & gratuities are not included.
