YOUR GOLF

YOUR GOLF

ADARE MANOR GOLF CLUB

Masterfully designed, magnificently maintained, and perfectly set within the glorious estate of one of Europe’s most spectacular manor house hotels, The Golf Course at Adare Manor is among the best championship courses in the world.

Architect Tom Fazio's recent restoration has transformed Adare Manor into a course worthy of the Ryder Cup, which it is hosting in 2027!

The course has been recreated in harmony with the outstanding natural beauty of its surroundings: lush, softly rolling terrain, mature trees along the fairways and play along the sweeping banks of the River Maigue.

This magnificent course is at once strategic and soulful, playable in all conditions, and future-proofed in preparation for premier amateur and professional events. It is truly an outstanding work of art.

TRALEE GOLF CLUB

18 holes, 72 par, 6,975 yards

Tralee Golf Club is a rugged and exhilarating creation and a must play.

Tralee stimulate the senses every bit as much as the enchanting and breathtaking scenery. According to folklore, Arnold Palmer, the architect, created the front nine and Mother Nature did the rest. The front nine at Tralee Golf Club plays across fairly level links land, but the majority of the holes hug the coastline and the ground is elevated, affording magnificent views from the cliff top across Tralee Bay to the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The back nine plays through mountainous dunes with fearsome carries across ravines to plateau greens.

There are so many great holes here and the 3rd, called “The Castle”, is considered to be the best. Scenically, it is glorious and reminiscent of the 7th at Pebble Beach. Your line is the ruined castle standing sentry to the left and behind the green, anything to the right of this green will be lost in the sea.

WATERVILLE GOLF LINKS

18 holes, 72 par, 7,378/6,810 yards

Waterville plays on a promontory surrounded by the sea. It’s a stunning, remote location with views to the northeast of the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks mountain range and to the southwest across the Ballinskelligs Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The fairways are gently undulating, the front nine plays across relatively flat ground while the back nine weaves its way through avenues of tall dunes.

There are few courses that can boast such a fine collection of unique and great golf holes. Waterville has three outstanding par threes and three excellent par fives, the par fours are pretty good, too. The 11th is a short par five with a rippling fairway protected on both flanks by towering dunes. The 366-yard par four 16th was once called “Round the Bend” because it follows the natural curvature of the Atlantic coastline. .

BALLYBUNION GOLF CLUB OLD COURSE

18 holes, 71 par, 6,802 yards

Originally founded in 1893 as a 12-hole course, Ballybunion was extended to 18 holes in 1926. The Old Ballybunion course remained relatively anonymous until it hosted the Irish Championship in 1937. Little has changed since.

Ballybunion is a thrilling challenge and a supreme test of golf. Tom Watson fell in love with Ballybunion and agreed to write an introduction for the course guide. He writes: "After playing Ballybunion for the first time, a man would think that the game of golf originated here. There is a wild look to the place, the long grass covering the dunes that pitch and roll throughout the course making it very intimidating... in short, it is a course on which many golf architects should live and play before they build golf courses. I consider it a true test of golf."

THINGS TO SEE & DO

THE RING OF KERRY

Ireland's longest circular route covers some staggeringly beautiful scenery, including lakes, beaches, glens, castle ruins, off-shore islands, mountains and, of course, the Atlantic Ocean to the west. A journey around the Ring of Kerry is a must for any first-time visitor to Ireland.

In a car or bus, the Ring of Kerry's 180 km can provide distractions enough to fill a day, but there is no shortage of places to stay overnight and, depending on your interests, you can certainly find plenty of interesting diversions to make it a trip of two or more days.

 

THE BLARNEY CASTLE & STONE

Built nearly six hundred years ago by one of Ireland's greatest chieftains, Cormac MacCarthy, and has been attracting attention ever since. Over the last few hundred years, millions have flocked to Blarney making it a world landmark and one of Ireland's greatest treasures.

Now that might have something to do with the Blarney Stone, the legendary Stone of Eloquence, found at the top of the tower. For over 200 years, world statesmen, literary giants, and legends of the silver screen have joined the millions of pilgrims climbing the steps to kiss the Blarney Stone and gain the gift of eloquence. Its powers are unquestioned but its story still creates debate.

Blarney Castle's gardens are one of the most visited in Ireland and the 60 acres are a joy to explore. Visit the prehistoric Fern Garden, a deadly Poison Garden, and the magical Rock Close with its ancient Yew trees and druidic stones. Stroll by the lake, river side and woodlands or in the dazzlingly beautiful arboretums.

THE CITY OF CORK

Cork is the second largest city in Ireland behind Dublin, with a population of over 200,000. City center is an island positioned between two channels of the River Lee and Cork Harbor, one of the largest natural harbors in the world.

Despite being a city, Cork has a decidedly towny feel to it, it's laidback with plenty of coffee shops, art galleries, museums and seriously good pubs.

Check out The English Market, Blarney Castle & Stone, Cork City Gaol (prison museum), the Crawford Art Gallery, Elizabeth Fort, St Fin Barre's Cathedral, St Anne's Church, Glenview Gardens and much more. It's a city worth exploring and it's compact size makes it easy to do so.

GIANT'S CAUSEWAY

Flanked by the wild North Atlantic Ocean and a landscape of dramatic cliffs, for centuries the Giant’s Causeway has inspired artists, stirred scientific debate and captured the imagination of all who see it.

The location is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was voted one of the Top 5 Greatest Natural Wonders of the UK. It is located in Northern Ireland close to Bushmills and Portrush.

Climb the Shepherd's Steps and hike along the clifftop trail to get a bird's eye view of the beautiful causeway coast. Or enjoy the road less travelled capturing the World Heritage Site on an active five-mile hike along the stunning cliff-top path with the guided Clifftop Experience.

You can also unlock the mystery and stories of the landscape in the exhibition area of the Visitor Center.

THE ENGLISH MARKET, CORK

The English Market has been a part of Cork’s city center since the 1780s. At the time, Ireland was a part of the British Empire and the English corporation which was in power in Cork was responsible for building the market, which officially opened on August 1, 1788.

The English Market has a reputation for showcasing the best in local produce, artisanal bakeries, speciality butchers and the market holds tight to its traditions to provide a fantastic place to meet foodies with tons of events throughout the year. There is also your pick of foods to grab and go or check out the cafe on the second floor. You can also pick up some fantastic boutique items from vintage shoes and clothes to lovely jewellery and much more.

The two-story covered market, officially made up of the Princes Street Market and Grand Parade Market, dishes out fresh produce, hot meals, and gourmet ingredients, Monday through Saturday.

DINGLE & THE DINGLE PENINSULA

The Dingle Peninsula stretches 30 miles into the Atlantic Ocean on the south-west coast on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. The peninsula is dominated by the range of mountains that form its spine, running from the Slieve Mish range to the Conor Pass and  Mount Brandon, Ireland’s second highest peak. The magnificent coastline consists of steep sea-cliffs such as Slea Head , dramatic headlands broken by sandy beaches, with the award-winning beach at Inch in the south and the tombolo of Maharees to the north.

The peninsula has something to offer to everyone... ancient walking trails, cycling delights, links golf, horse riding trails, surfing, kayaking, eco boat tours, windsurfing, diving, rowing, sailing, angling, swimming at Blue Flag beaches, an aquarium, pet farms, climbing wall, educational holidays, immersive sports events, heritage landmarks and shopping.
