A limited number of tickets remain for the weekend at next week’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, and fans are being advised by tournament organisers to purchase their tickets online to avoid disappointment at the gate.
Ticket sales are nearing full capacity for Saturday and Sunday at Lahinch Golf club, so those planning to attend at the weekend are advised to buy online in advance via www.dubaidutyfreeirishopen.com. Eventbrite is the only official ticketing channel from which fans should purchase tickets.
The second Rolex Series event of the 2019 Race to Dubai will be hosted by Ryder Cup winning captain Paul McGinley, and a host of world-class stars will arrive on Irish shores next week including Tommy Fleetwood, Padraig Harrington, Shane Lowry, Louis Oosthuizen, Graeme McDowell, Ian Poulter, Jon Rahm, Matt Wallace, Lee Westwood and Danny Willett.
Defending champion Russell Knox also returns having claimed a dramatic victory last year, holing a 45-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to clinch a place in a play-off alongside New Zealander Ryan Fox before sinking an almost identical putt on the first play-off hole to seal his maiden Rolex Series title and send the huge Irish crowds into raptures.
“The 2019 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Lahinch Golf Club is shaping up to be one of the best ever,” said Simon Alliss, the tournament’s Championship Director. “Tickets sales have been through the roof and we are now strongly advising fans to ensure they purchase their tickets in advance to avoid missing out on what will be a fantastic week of golf and entertainment.

“We had two sold-out days at Portrush in 2012 and, while that has not yet happened for Lahinch, there is a strong possibility that we will reach full capacity so we want to ensure fans are not left disappointed.”
A festival of golf and entertainment will await the fans who arrive the famous County Clare venue next week, with the Lahinch Live headlined traditional Irish music legend Sharon Shannon, and rock superstars Chasing Abbey and Hermitage Green on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (July 5,6,7) respectively.
The Lifestyle Pavilion has also been added to the Championship Village festivities for the first time, with fitness and nutrition author and social media influencer Dr Hazel Wallace (The Food Medic) headlining on Friday July 5, while also hosting a Q&A with European Tour and Ryder Cup performance nutritionist David Dunne.
On Saturday July 6, BEO Bites – a popular wellbeing and nutrition event hosted by County Clare natives Aoibhín Garrihy and Sharon Connellan – will take centre stage in the Lifestyle Pavilion, where Dr Hazel Wallace will appear for a second day. Author, columnist and actor Stefanie Preissner will also be interviewed by the Lifestyle Pavilion host Lauren Guilfoyle.
