My first visit to play Doonbeg ensured that it will not be my last. The course is fabulous and manicured to the nth degree. The greens were all consistant and fairways a joy. The crazy wind we had on the day just made us concentrate...More

Simply one of the best courses I've ever played .Superb friendly staff. Definitely be back. A true test for golfers of all levels. This course with its facilities must be in contention to host an Irish Open.

The day we played we started out in the pouring rain which quickly subsided but we faced 25-35 mph winds the entire 18. It is a beautiful and challenging course but when the wind blows that hard it is difficult to enjoy the course. I...More

Yes, you could! As you may or may not know, golf carts are not permitted. ...Only for the handicapped. The caddies are wonderful! The restaurant is very good! A must!

Walking course. Easy to walk. Caddies are reasonable price but not required. Rental clubs were top of the line. Balls not included. Need plenty. Rough are rough!
