Golf courses

Ballybunion Old

Located on the northwest coast of County Kerry on a beautiful stretch of sand dunes overlooking the Atlantic. The Old Course exudes a majestic feel that simply cannot be compared to any other course on Earth. With beautifully contoured fairways that tumble down through a blanket of grassy dunes, it's no wonder these challenging holes have been consistently rated among the top courses in the world.

Ballybunion Cashen

If the Cashen Course at Ballybunion Golf Club were situated anywhere else, rather than adjacent to the world-famous Old Course, it would attract far more attention and plaudits than it does. In many ways ‘the Cashen’ is more spectacular, more brutal, and more unforgiving - its dunes are higher, its valleys are deeper, its greens more undulating.


Golf at Waterville is a mystical experience - the beauty of classic links land surrounded by the sea yet forever challenged and shaped by the elements. More than 100 years old, Waterville is rated among the top five courses in Ireland and the top 20 links courses in the world. The course was a noted training venue for the British Open by four past champions and combines sand dunes, gorse, native grasses, firm fairways, sod-faced bunkers, and subtle putting surfaces all intertwined by the ever-changing weather.


Spanning 1.5 miles of crescent shaped beach and sand dunes, the Dr Martin Hawtree newly re-designed course at Trump International Golf Links Doonbeg is a stunning sight to behold and offers views of the Atlantic from 16 of 18 holes. In line with Norman’s philosophy of ‘least disturbance’, the most natural route was taken in laying the course out through the sand dunes.

Old Head Golf Links

Old Head Golf Links is built on a 220-acre diamond of land, jutting out over two miles into the Atlantic Ocean. The promontory is almost an island with numerous caves running beneath your feet as you play the course. Old Head, par 72, comprises five Par 5s, five Par 3s, and eight Par 4s - stretching to over 7,200 yards from the tips, with a minimum of six tees per hole. Nine holes play along the cliff tops, and all eighteen holes provide stunning ocean views. With the ever-changing sea-breezes, the course provides a stern test to the touring pro and the high handicapper alike.


Lahinch has had outstanding designers from its inception through to modern times; Old Tom Morris, Alister MacKenzie, and Martin Hawtree. In 1894, Old Tom Morris was commissioned to make full use of the natural terrain, especially the giant sand dunes at Lahinch. Old Tom Morris's creations were the famous Klondyke (4th) & Dell (5th) holes; these still remain today.


Enhanced by Martin Hawtree in 2002, Dooks presents an enticing offer to the golfer seeking a beautiful and tranquil environment to enjoy great golf. Less exposed than some Irish courses, Dooks features an amazing variety of gorse, heather and wild flowers. The “gentle” wind is never far away and the narrow genuine sandy fairways and well contoured greens offer you a real taste of traditional links golf at its very best.


Situated on the rugged Atlantic coast of Ireland's southwest, the links features towering dunes, undulating fairways, punishing rough and cliff top tees, and greens. Designed and built by Arnold Palmer, this stunning setting represents a true paradise for those willing to challenge what is widely acclaimed as one of the finest links courses in the world.
