Donegal golf course (Murvagh) is one of the top links courses in the country. Very long, but very enjoyable to play.

This is a place that makes a golfers heart tick faster. We had a wonderful reception. Truly friendly. This is not an easy course but one you will never forget. If you are near and love golf: go there!

One of the best links courses on the island,the fairways and greens were surprisingly soft and had a lush covering of grass for this time of the year which made the course play even longer (thanks to the awful summer weather).The views are panoramic with a variety of great holes like the par 3 fifth aptly named "valley of tears".We...

The golf course is beautiful with some terrific holes and amazing views. The service in all areas of the club is professional but friendly. The food in the dining area is great and terrific value.

as a day off we played (in the sun) at Donegal and had a grand time. Greens needed some work but this links course offered ocean views and for $130 E for golf , clubs, and carts was pretty reasonable. Guinnes when we finished, Slainte

On a balmy day you could get a more perfect golf course, in excellent condition.I play off 18 & scored 34 pts with a birdie on the infamous 5th.
