We played the two courses here over 2 days. These are both exceptional courses intertwined between each other. Both courses are very long with strategically placed pot bunkers on most holes. The Glashedy Links will host the Irish Open in 2018 and will be a...More

My husband played the Glashedy course, while on our trip to the Inishowen peninsula. He found it more challenging than 'Dunbeg' golf course (a links course in Co. Clare.) He was delighted with himself to have this opportunity pre 2018! He bought some polo-tops in...More

The Glashedy course is a tough but fair test of links golf. The views are second to none and compliment the championship golf course from start to finish. Unfortunately the rain chucked down from the 3rd hole to the 18th, however it didn't dampen our...More

We visited for the restaurant (not the golf this time) and we loved the venue. The lunch menu is excellent and outstanding value. And the views are amazing. Well worth a visit if you're in the area even if you're not playing golf.
