Played here today after being let down by a couple of courses due to very bad weather. Being a links course, the drainage is excellent. What I didn't bargain for was the views, which are some of the best you'll find anywhere, and the course...More

Called on spec for lunch. we were offered a table and welcomed in to the bar. We had a good lunch. Great prices and huge portions of typical golf-club food. Very tasty, well presented and good value.

We love this place. Alas have not been here for years. The course is truly magnificent as is the scenery. The beach has to be seen to be believed. Lovely friendly people and great food in club house. What more could you want?!

Wonderful old course but redone recently so even more beautiful and challenging. We met the Captain (his son was my caddie), and his mother. So very family feel. He shared with us the oldest (since 1899) golfing trophy awarded in Ireland
