The whole experience of going over on the ferry adds to the charm of this course. Great welcome in the pro shop and bar area where we had lunch. Lovely course with very good greens but be aware, it is a busy course.

The fifteen minute Ferry is just the beginning of this island adventure. There are really two segments to this trip. The Castle is a high end classic hotel and restaurant....where you can spend 55 Euro for high tea...and the Golf Club and Club house where you can have a reasonable lunch and play a round of golf.

One reaches this castle via car ferry over what was the castle moat. The castle was sold in 2015 and it would appear the new owner is making some needed changes. The interior of the castle is breathtaking and filled with great historical beauty. Gorgeous dining room and tea room. Bathrooms are lovely!

This was our fourth visit to the lodges and have never seen them looking so well cared for. Someone must have been very busy during the Winter painting and decorating. We just love the spaciousness and comfort of the lodges. So clean and welcoming. They still manage to look so fresh and contemporary and offer superb value for money, especially... More
