Suggested arrival airport: Shannon Airport

1. Lahinch Golf Club

Getting there

Lahinch Golf Club, in the town of Lahinch, is just an hour’s drive from the airport on the northwest coast of County Clare. Trains also run every half an hour and take just over an hour.

The golf course

The stunning Championship Course of Lahinch was first designed by the legendary Old Tom Morris in 1894 and has since seen stellar names such as Alister MacKenzie – the man who co-designed Augusta National – leave their mark. Often called the ‘St Andrews of Ireland’, it’s world class course and hosted the Irish Open in July this year. This 6,355-yard, par-72 course is a truly authentic Irish golf experience with rolling green fairways and picturesque views over the beach of Liscannor Bay. Visitors can also play the slightly easier but no less enjoyable Castle Course.

Suggested accommodation

Atlantic Hotel: Just a five minute drive from the golf course, in a perfect seaside location, the family-run Atlantic Hotel offers comfortable, charming accommodation. Room prices are approximately €65 per night. 

2. Ballybunion Golf Club

Getting there

Just a two hour drive from Lahinch is the seaside resort town of Ballybunion in County Kerry. The quickest way to get from Lahinch to Ballybunion is to drive and then a car ferry which costs €15-€35 and takes 1h 33m. 

The golf course

Located on the north west coast of County Kerry, on a beautiful stretch of sand dunes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, are two challenging and unique world class links golf courses – the Old Course and the Trent Jones Cashen Course. You will find some of the most dramatic holes in Ireland, with echoes of Pebble Beach in California. Five-time Open champion Tom Watson said: “After playing Ballybunion for the first time, a man would think that the game of golf originated here”.

Suggested accommodation

Wilde Ballybunion: Situated in Ballybunion, Wilde Ballybunion has a restaurant, bar, shared lounge, and free WiFi. The hotel features family rooms. Room prices are approximately €100 per night. 

Teach de Broc: This charming 4-star guesthouse with a restaurant is situated very close to Ballybunion Golf Club. Room prices are approximately €100 per night.

3. Adare Manor

Getting there

Adare Manor is a manor house located on the banks of the River Maigue in the village of Adare in County Limerick. From Ballybunion you can get a bus and train for around €60 or you can drive. Both take just over an hour.

The golf course 

Adare Manor will host the 2026 Ryder Cup. The 7,509-yard, par 72 course, set among 840 acres of pristine parkland, with cedar and oakwood trees and the natural water hazard of the River Maigue, has been called the most beautiful parkland course outside of Augusta National, home to the Masters. Each hole could be crowned the feature hole.

Suggested accommodation

Adare Manor Hotel: The manor itself is a stunning, huge 19th century manor house and is now a five-star luxury hotel. Prices are expensive, ranging from €700-€4,000 a night.

Fitzgeralds Woodlands House Hotel: Set on the edge of Adare, Fitzgeralds offers an award-winning restaurant, a leisure club and a pool and spa. Room prices are approximately €140 per night. 

4. Tralee Golf Club

Getting there

Just an hour’s drive away from Adare Manor is the town of Tralee in County Kerry. You can also get the bus which takes around the same amount of time and costs between €5-€15.

The golf course

The Barrow Course is the work of Arnold Palmer in 1984. Upon beholding the site, Palmer declared: “I have never come across a piece of land so ideally suited for the building of a golf course.” The scenery is absolutely stupendous here: there are bays, spits of land jutting into the sea, nature preserves and historic sites in every direction, including the remains of a castle from the 1300s next to the green on the third hole.

Suggested accommodation

Ballyroe Height Hotel: Handily just a 10 minute drive from Tralee Golf Club. Set in over six acres of gardens and woodland, Ballyroe Heights Hotel offers modern en suite rooms and impressive views across Tralee Bay. Prices range from around €80 per night.
