If you love golf, Ballybunion is a must on your list. So many fantastic courses in Ireland, so little time and money. Many great courses not too far away. Could fit Tralee and Waterville all from this area.

Great golfcourse , nice spacious clubhouse and shop. Great outline and hilly course on the cliffs. Super fairways and greens , the wind is a big factor here. At Some holes the greens and tees are very close to each other but otherwise super.

In a nutshell , underwhelmed. This club is supposedly one of the ( if not THE) gem of Irish golf. It is plainly obvious by the number of tourists around the course , paying serious money, that the club generates considerable income. This money is...More

Yes, there is a driving range and multiple practice greens. As a group, we rarely hit balls before playing, focusing mostly on the short game and speed of the greens which fluctuated greatly on our trip.

I wouldn't miss Ballybunion, Tralee, Lahinch, or Waterville. All of them are absolutely top notch golf experiences.
