One of the best courses in the world

One great day in Ireland. Played one of the best courses in the world with a caddy in 3 hours. The course was in perfect condition and the day was cloudy with 49 - 58 degrees

There's absolutely nothing that my wife and I could fault... The course was in excellent condition and, although the greens were running slow this turned into a benefit once the winds picked up and started to gust at 40mph plus !! We played on a day where we enjoyed fine weather and moderate winds until about the 5th hole. Then... More

Played a 4ball on a slightly windy day, the course is challenging and interesting. The new greens are slow but true and will no doubt be good when they settle in. Pace of play was acceptable and the paths around the course are exceptionally good. We ate in the clubhouse afterwards which also was good. Definitely worth the visit!

Spent 4 days at this amazing property, we stayed in a 4 bedroom cottage just away from the main hotel. The cottage was like its own little hotel, with its own shared lounge a kitchen. It was perfect for us as we were there to attend a family wedding. Staff are amazing and will cater to you in any way.... More

Exactly the kind of lodge you would hope for in the middle of golf country. Cozy common areas, spacious and very comfortable rooms; but above all absolutely fantastic customer service. Over the top with any request you may have. Golf course and views are spectacular.

We were staying at Dromolin Castle and drove to Doonbeg to play golf. We should have stayed there too. It has a beautiful hotel, course, pro shop and restaurant. Our caddies were awesome. The course has so many beautiful views along the ocean. We would love to return to Ireland and stay there while doing day trips to Ballybunion and... More
