I have played the "Old" course a number of times over the past 13 years...and each round in equally impressive and enjoyable. I can't wait to return another year, Don't leave without a round on the Cashen course.. not as legandary, but totally challenging...
Also...s stay at the 19th Lodge is a must if you want to enjoy the best.

Had a lovely meal here on Mothers Day. Beef was fantastic and the few from the dining room was great.

One of the most famous courses in Ireland, and deservedly so. Spectacular setting, challenging layout, terrific seaside views. Don't miss it if you're golfing in this part of Ireland. The clubhouse sits high on a hill and provides an outstanding view of the last hole - an ideal 19th hole.

This is one of the finest.
Quirky old style links. First few holes are fair to good. Last four are some of the best in Ireland. In between are dome good to great tests of golf. Several tee shots over adjacent greens. Get a caddie!

We played the old course on Friday and the Cashen course on Saturday as part of our society outing, and what an experience. The old course lived up to its reputation as one of the best links courses in the world. Not for the high handicapper, as some of your shots have to be pin point accurate in order to stay in play and the greens are not easy to read.Some of the scenery around the course is spectacular and really adds to your enjoyment of this beautiful golf course. After completing your round of golf, your score card will reflect how good a golfer you really are, a true test of golf on a proper golf course. Play this as soon as you can.
The Cashen course is equally as tough and enjoyable as the old course, but I found the fairways a bit more generous in width and the greens were bigger and slightly easier to read. Again the views of the Atlantic ocean and the surrounding countryside is truly amazing. Giant sand dunes are one of the features on this course and again accuracy is very important with every drive and fairway shot, going offline and into the rough is not an option as you will more than likely not find your ball. A great course to play and would probably get more plaudits if it were not in such close proximity to its famous sister course. For a great weekends golf you will not find two more beautiful and challenging courses anywhere else. Clubhouse is great for food and staff are helpful and friendly.
