Golf Courses

Ballybunion Golf Club, Kerry

Consistently voted amongst the top Golf courses of the World, Ballybunion is a stunning test of Golf. Legendary multiple major winner Tom Watson was the captain of the club during their centenary year and rates it alongside Pebble Beach as his favourite course. For me, Ballybunion never plays the same two days running. I have played here in all types of weather conditions, from beautiful blue skies to strong winds coming off the Atlantic, and the Links at Ballybunion never disappoints.

Lahinch Golf Club

Situated less than a mile from the main street of this picturesque seaside town, Lahinch is one of the oldest Links venues in the country and annually hosts the South of Ireland amateur championship. My first experience of playing here at Lahinch as a teenager was a chastening one, where I’m happy to admit the course and the elements got the better of me. This is a great test of Golf and one not to be missed.

Waterville Golf Club, Kerry

Waterville Golf Links is situated on the famous Ring of Kerry, one of Ireland’s most picturesque locations. In my opinion the Links at Waterville offers one of the stiffest golfing challenges to be found anywhere in the country. I had the absolute thrill of playing in an Irish PGA Championship here in 1986 in the company of ten times Ryder Cup player, Christy O’Connor Senior, an experience I will never forget.

Tralee Golf Club, Kerry

This Arnold Palmer designed course is situated on a stunning piece of the Kerry coastline, alongside the Atlantic Ocean. The scenery on the back nine makes this one of my favourite places to play Golf and it is a terrific test of every facet of your game. Winding its way through the sand dunes, with the challenge that the unpredictable Irish weather can provide, this is a real joy.

The Links at Doonbeg

Close to the village of Doonbeg, out on the water’s edge, sits one of Europe’s most distinguished 5-star destinations, Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Doonbeg (formally Lodge at Doonbeg).

Named the #2 Resort in Europe by Condé Nast Traveler, Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Doonbeg (formerly the Lodge at Doonbeg) awaits travellers with spacious accommodations, fine amenities and discreet service.

Accommodation

The Europe Hotel is situated just outside the beautiful town of Killarney and on the shores of the famous Lakes of Killarney. This 5 star property is luxury all the way and is a favourite with many of our clients.

The hotel at Trump Doonbeg sits majestically on a headland overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the Greg Norman designed Links. Again, this is 5 star luxury all the way.
