Golf WAG Caroline ready to tee off on busy summer

The summer is almost here, and for glamorous Caroline 
Harrington that means plenty of passport action.

The summer is here and for glamorous Caroline Harrington that means plenty of passport action.

The mum of two is a firm supporter of her husband, golfer Padraig’s career and loyally follows him from tournament to tournament, especially during the busy summer season.

But the Dubliner is also making sure to get some off-peak time in with her family and is preparing to take the couple’s sons, Patrick and Ciaran, to sunny Spain for a holiday.

“I am going to London for a week because Padraig is playing a tournament there,” Caroline told the Herald.

The 41-year-old jetted out to London today, but won’t spend too long away from her young sons who are busy completing their last few weeks in school.

“I will be home for a week and then we are going to Spain,” she explained.

“My parents are over there for a month so I am going to take the kids for the bank holiday weekend and we are really looking forward to it.

“There has been a lot going on this year so it will be a nice break.”

“The kids are still in school until June, but we will probably go away again later in the summer.”


Next month, Caroline will be packing her bags as she joins hubby Padraig for the Irish Open, kicking off on June 19 in Cork.

“It is taking place in Fota Island in Cork this year so that is one I am quite excited about,” said Caroline.

“It is nice to be able to drive somewhere and we have been to Fota Island many times, it is really beautiful.

“We can make a holiday out of that because sometimes I think it is just as enjoyable to stay in Ireland.”

A fan of exclusive store Harvey Nichols, including designer brand Pinko, Caroline has plenty of varied wardrobe choices on hand if the Irish weather takes a turn for the first.

Childhood sweethearts, Caroline and Padraig married in 1997 and live in Dublin with their children.

Both fitness enthusiasts, Caroline does pilates five times a week, while hubby Padraig works out with his own specialised trainer.

Earlier this year, the Dublin golf star opened up about his brush with skin cancer, revealing that he had surgery to remove a number of skin cancers from his face and he urged the public to be vigilant of any health concerns.

“When you get a symptom don’t ignore it and do something about it,” he said.
