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.

Whilst this is a fully functioning golf club it also has an impressive restaurant with great views over the golf course and beach. Lovely Sunday roast

Ballyliffin Golf Club in Co. Donegal, Ireland is truly outstanding ! Two fantastic championship golf courses in superb condition set on the rugged coastline of County Donegal is a must see, play and experience.

Both courses are really good but for me Glashedy was by far the stronger, more demanding and superior golf course with many memorable holes. I would without doubt include this destination as part of any golfing trip to this part of Ireland. Thanks to the staff who were superb, nothing was too much trouble. What really impressed me was the... More

I played the 'Old Course' then 'Glashedy' the following day during Open Week. Two great courses, Old is slightly easier. They are trying to get the Irish Open- it deserves it! The staff are friendly, extremely attentive & helpful. Food in the restaurant was fantastic too, ate there both nights- the 25euro meal was great value & the chicken/steak stack... More

Don't be mislead by the title, my golf was anything but glorious. The courses however were magnificent. Not a lot to choose between the two courses though the old links is slightly shorter and probably a little easier. You get right down to the coast and the scenery is fantastic too. The locals described the weather as exceptional, which I'd... More

This is really top class! I played the Glashedy links on a clear cold day..with enough breeze to keep you honest . The course was in great condition...greens were fast but fair..AND...the scenery is simply magnificent ..on the high tees you can see for miles out to the Atlantic. The Glashedy links was designed by Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock... More
