Golf Travel Guide to Southwest Ireland

Golf Guide -> Southwest (Southwest Golf Course Directory)

Ireland's famous southwest golf region is home not only to some of the best links courses in the world, but also to magnificent scenery and a variety of welcoming towns and villages. Golf is centred around the famous links courses of Waterville, Tralee and Ballybunion, all in County Kerry. There are also great links courses at Dooks and Dingle.

Neighbouring County Cork is to the east and it is here Old Head golf links is to be found. Not a true links it is nonetheless a very popular golf course and lives up to its billing (on a fine day!) of 'the most spectacular golf course on Earth'.

Waterville Golf'The Kingdom', as County Kerry is known, draws over one million visitors annually to savour its beauty. The town of Killarney is the most popular touring base, adjacent to the magnificent Lakes of Killarney and is the start/end of the famous Ring of Kerry tourist trail. The Dingle peninsula has its own unique scenery and in the far west, in the area home to Ceann Sibeal Golf CLub, the native Irish language is still spoken.

The towns of Kenmare, Dingle and Tralee are also popular visitor resorts.

Further East is the lovely city of Cork. Cork is Ireland's second largest city and famous for the Bells of Shandon and Murphys stout. Blarney Castle and its famous stone are 6 miles from Cork city.

Just south of Cork City is the historic harbour town of Kinsale. Today Kinsale is noted for fine cuisine, delightful ambience and its many arts & crafts centres.

Luxurious accommodation to match the fine golf course is available at Adare, County Limerick. As a base for an entire golf vacation, or as a final night treat, Adare is an experience to savour. Shannon Airport is just 30 minutes drive.

In County Clare, the principal destinations are the seaside resort of Lahinch and the county town of Ennis. (See also the guide to the western golf region). Travel between Lahinch/Doonbeg and County Kerry is shortened by the Shannon Estuary Ferry than runs between Killimer (Clare) and Tarbert (Kerry).
