First time playing this course and have already booked to stay in the hotel. I read reviews the course is too short but I think it's a thinkers course and requires accuracy. Greens were perfect while being very difficult but true if you putt well. Definitely one of me favourites

Wonderful course,in an excellent condition.The Avoca stream is nicely interacting on some holes.The only drawback is the start,since the first tee is too far back and in danger of hitting people on the second tee.On the other side the view from the upper and outer bar is splendid.

If you're looking for a warm welcome and a fantastic round of golf you must play here. Visited here for the third time with 18 other golfers who are part of a society. The challenge is real but the rewards are great. The river meanders through the property setting up many challenges, and opportunities to lose a ball to three.... More

Lovely golf course, well worth playing. Good practice area. Nice club house and good food served. They can supply golf clubs and buggy's. They have reduced green fees on open days. Looking forward to a revisit soon.

I played 18 holes the day after I arrived in Ireland. It is a nice course with great views. Greens are in good condition and fairways are wide open.

View from balcony amazing. Staff very friendly and accommodating, bar food was surprisingly good, the breaded goats cheese and brie a must. No elevator but currently being installed, staff helped with luggage upon arrival.

stunning views that is my big take from here. The course is quite short and not the most difficult but the setting is hard to beat. Its reasonable and if you get a nice day its lovely. I enjoyed my visit here because of the weather views and company. Found some of the holes especially early in the round a... More

What a gem. We had a great 18 holes despite the weather being fairly chilly. The course has a beautiful setting and is a very good challenge. I will definitely return

Set in a valley with a river running through it, this is a beautiful course, well maintained and suited to all handicaps. I hired clubs for 25 euros and was delighted to get a set of TaylorMades which looked brand new. Nice clubhouse serving good food.
