Ireland cheap golf and need for GPS?Hello,
In a week I am arriving in Dublin and have rented a car at which point I am jetting down to the south west tip of Ireland. I was told that sign and directions can be bad, so to make sure I get GPS for my rental, but I am reluctant to pay the 16 euros a day. I'd rather go buy one. Does anyone think it is completely necessary to have one? If so, could I get a reccommendation on a good one to get that is useful throughout Europe?
Also, I was hoping to get in a few rounds of golf, but can't really afford the 150-250 Euros a lot of the courses are charging (without club rentals). Has anyone played any great courses along the following itinerary that are cheaper, but were a great links experience?
Dublin - Kilkenny - Cork - Killarney - Ring of Kerry - Gallway - Dublin
This is basically the route I am taking, Essentially a ring. My one major goal was to make it out to Skellig Michael which I have arranged and left myself leeway in case the sea is terrible, do Connor's pass and other sites in the Ring of Kerry and then the Cliffs of Moher near Galway.
If anyone has any other suggestions that are along my route that would be great. I love old castles and heritage sites.
