Played here today after being let down by a couple of courses due to very bad weather. Being a links course, the drainage is excellent. What I didn't bargain for was the views, which are some of the best you'll find anywhere, and the course...More

We love this place. Alas have not been here for years. The course is truly magnificent as is the scenery. The beach has to be seen to be believed. Lovely friendly people and great food in club house. What more could you want?!

This is the best golf course I have played. The first is a nice little opener before taking on one of the most beautiful holes ever made. And it just never let's you down.

Wonderful old course but redone recently so even more beautiful and challenging. We met the Captain (his son was my caddie), and his mother. So very family feel. He shared with us the oldest (since 1899) golfing trophy awarded in Ireland
