Republic of Ireland

The Republic of Ireland is justifiably famous for a number of things – the people, the scenery and the sights. It’s also one of the world’s leading destinations for golf. A golfing trip to the Emerald Isle will not only convince you of Ireland’s golf pedigree, it will also challenge any perceptions you had about the quality of the great game in Ireland.

East Course

Mooie baan maar erg lang. Zeker met nat weer is de rough meedogenloos. Receptioniste is echt vriendelijk en behulpzaam. 2 x 18 holes gespeeld met een lekkere lunch tussendoor. Helaas was de baan net geprikt en de Greens bemest. Maar dat moet ook gebeuren.

Cashen Course

When people think of golfing in the South of Ireland I bet they never consider playing the Cashen course at Ballybunion, that is a big mistake! The Cashen course is spectacular and if it wasn’t next to its world famous sibling than it would be very famous itself. The par 3’s aren’t long but hitting the right part of the green is key to them, some par 4’s are short meaning…

Palmerstown House

What an absolute joy to play on this classic Irish parkland course. The maintenance on the fairways and Greens is impressive and the long lay-out of the course is impressive. The few local Irish that were there seemed Nice as well I played here with a local member who Showed me around. The fairways are quite wide in general but there is a huge amount of fairway bunkers…

The Island

Great golf course. Long and demanding holes with devilish greens. Stunning location on a peninsula, almost an island, with beautiful views of the sea, the estuary and Malahide village in front. A true Championship links course!

Covid time: no golf cars allowed though very altitude differences; restaurant closed just on our day of playing; well maintained with green keeper visibly active; no idea of atmosphere as very few players in flights and bar closed

Very friendly club. President was at the course and chatted to us before we teed off. Course quite forgiving and in excellent condition. Good Mix of Men and ladies on the course. No Driving range but Grass iron practice area, chipping/bunker area and putting area. Restaurant very nice.
