The two links golf courses are famously challenging and a must-do for golfers. The views are tremendous north towards Liscannor and the cliffs of moher, south along the Atlantic coast. It is a treat to eat at the clubhouse too. Easily found right in Lahinch village and near the surfers beach. Great photo ops!

One of the best courses I have ever played. I have traveled throughout the world playing golf and Lahinch is in my top 3 courses. Well worth the trip for any golfer or traveler.

this place is just fab. the view, the greens and the bunkers. get a caddy as most tee off's are blind and you will need him to tell you the best shots to take. bring a good few balls too.

This was our first course of the five we played while in Ireland. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The course was challenging and very unique. I loved the two holes where you hit completely blind shots and they placed stones on the hill to indicate the direction to hit. Edna was my caddie and he was excellent!

We played today in about 30mph plus winds but temperature was 50F and no rain. We played from the green tees because of the wind. This is a beautiful course but it's tough. The wind made it really tough. 300 yard drives followed by 150 yard drives against the wind. Greens had been aerated so they were very bumpy. Would... More

Had lunch and then played a round of golf with my wife. The food was excellent and so was the service. The course was in great condition with breath taking views. Our caddie Damone was very engaging and helpful. I would definitely recommend this experience.

The staff was wonderful, the course had just punched 6 of the greens, they adjusted the green fee with a credit on my round. The course is a gem.

This is amongst my favourite courses in Ireland. It's hard, beautiful and well conditioned. Most of the shots are clear enough. Only a few places where the caddy was needed to point the way. I would have given it full marks if not for dressing on many of the greens. I guess it's gotta be done sometime. I'll ask next... More

The golf course was unplayable, even by Irish links standards ... 60 mph winds and driving, puddling rain, with bunkers turned into ponds. Our caddy said no sane person would play, but the club refused to offer refunds or rainchecks. Since we'd paid our €200 each and couldn't even delay until later that day, we carried on. NO ONE in...
