The course was much much better compare to my average game, I have to have play for bogey but anyway I was lucky, both day sunny and no one drop of rain! I enjoyed a lot.!

I really enjoyed the Range Rover Super Sports driving Guests around the Estate... As a Golfer, the premises are close to perfection: great convenience, super Service, a legendary Course. The Gym and Spa area is wonderful. The Maib House oozes Tradition, with great Food. A Treat really.

We were lucky enough to get great weather on the day but unfortunately that didn't do much help to my card! It is an amazingly designed course and is very well looked after. The greens are near perfect and make for a thoroughly enjoyable round of golf. In short its a magnificent course- very challenging and I will definitely be... More

Absolute quality course(s), birdies on the 1st and 8th almost made me feel like a member of Team Europe.....until my badly tempo'd back nine! Will definitely play this course again (Palmer) in May 2016 when we're next back across the Emerald Isle! It stood out more than the other courses we played on our 3 day golfing holiday.

Played a few holes on this course yesterday, sadly the rain nearly washed us away. The club have kindly invited us back. The facilities at the golf club are excellent and the staff were fantastic. Smurfit Course is great for all abilities.
