We played Narin & Portnoo on July 30. The weather on our trip was less than desirable but our day at N&P was one of the best. It only rained for two holes, and the wind was only 10-15 mph. Although we took a caddie, you could easily follow the course without one. Our caddie, Paul, was a fine young... More

Though it took us a while to get seated, (nobody seemed in charge of directing people to tables), it was worth the wait! Staff very attentive, food great! No problems with allergies at all! The steak is great there. Hidden treasure in Donegal!

A trip to Donegal should always include a visit here. For any level of golfer this course is perfect. Whether you are playing the golf of your life, or stinking it up on the greens, the views that await you further out the course are enough to justify the journey. Excellent staff are always courteous, and will welcome you with... More

We have 4 golfers who had the best time on this unusual course. Being from America we don't typically see this type of terrain. Everyone had a blast.

Not many people have heard of this course in the USA, but it is truly a hidden gem. The course starts out gently for 6 holes but then dashed up into dramatic dunes for the next 11 holes. Spectacular views accompany you for the ride. Quirky holes add to the joy of unwrapping this gem. Nice clubhouse and friendly staff... More

Ah!....Portnoo... Played it 3 times while on holiday this year. Magnificent links course...a real test of golf.....especially when the wind blows ...as it did on the last occasion. 3 par 5's in a row!! Bring lots of balls if the wind blows ...the rough is serious! Absolutely Brilliant!!!!

We went in for a late pint, the entire bar was on the dance floor, mighty crack, had a few pints and enjoyed the great smoking area.No complaints!
