Played the course on a recent trip and it is a must play for golfers visiting South west Ireland. A challenging course set amongst the dunes along the Atlantic coast. A great variety of holes with different challenges.

Amazing!! This course was absolutely beautiful. It was very challenging for me but I loved every minute of it. Would definitely play again. We did not have a Caddy but think it would be fun to do that someday.

Yes, there is a driving range and multiple practice greens. As a group, we rarely hit balls before playing, focusing mostly on the short game and speed of the greens which fluctuated greatly on our trip.

I wouldn't miss Ballybunion, Tralee, Lahinch, or Waterville. All of them are absolutely top notch golf experiences.
