Feedback is all positive… Great golf courses, great lodging, great bus driver, great aprés golf and most importantly a great bunch of guys to hang out with. An awesome experience!!
Top notch all around…good hotels, good golf. Nothing from a coordinating standpoint that was missed.
I thought all the courses were magnificent and in great shape. The tees times seemed very organized. By this I mean we were expected, welcomed, tee times ran on time and fitted into busy member play. Caddies were overall good. The one I remember most was Jackie – a 13-year-old boy at Dooks. Accommodations were within walking distance of town centre. The quality of the tour bus exceeded expectations. It was very nice. Our guide made it even better and did a terrific job.
Et everyone enjoyed the trip to SW Ireland.
This group photo was taken on the last day at Tralee, which our group voted as the #1 course we played. Old Head and Ballybunion were very close at #2 and #3. It would have been fine to play any one of those links courses more than once!! I personally REALLY liked Tralee…the course is spectacular and extremely interesting.
You put together a great trip for us. The bus and driver, Eddie Horgan, were excellent. The hotel was very good, everyone liked Killarney, and the courses were great.
Ballybunion offers an excellent selection of top bars and restaurants to choose from in the town. Top options would include McMunn’s Bar & Restaurant, Strollers Bistros, Kilcooly’s Bar & Restaurant and Daroka. The options vary from traditional “pub grub” to fine dining.
For those looking to dip their toes in the great Atlantic Ocean, the nearby beaches have grown in popularity as surf sites in recent years. Ballybunion beach itself is a popular spot for strolling amongst the locals and, at low tide, tidal caves will become accessible to those looking to explore the hidden coastline
These beaches are also popular amongst equestrian enthusiasts. Indeed, horse riding is a popular option amongst locals and tourists alike. There are plenty of trekking options available, and if you’d rather not experience the exhilaration of a beach ride, there are plenty of stunning woodland treks to choose from.
In the town itself, the traditional music scene is thriving and the town’s pubs are worth a visit for those looking to explore the best of Irish culture. As host to the 2006 World Fleadh, the town has a lot to offer. Alternatively, the town’s theatre holds performances of traditional Irish dance, music and literature.
The Ring of Kerry
Waterville, Dooks and Ring of Kerry are all located along the wonderfully scenic Ring of Kerry drive.
The Ring of Kerry is famed for its unique mix of both natural beauty and rich historical charm. Any trips in the county will prove rewarding for any nature and history buff, and there is an almost limitless diversity of places to go to and things to do.
Off the coast of Kerry lie the forbiddingly impressive Skellig Rocks. Rising from the Atlantic Ocean to an impressive 700 feet high, the rocks are home to vast colonies of seabirds, (the gannet colonies number around sixty thousand in total). Below, at the base of the cliffs, families of seals huddle which, if you take a boat trip from the coast, you will see on your way to the landing strip at Skellig Michael. From here you will scale 600 6th century steps en route to one of the oldest monasteries in Europe. These impressive geological features have featured in both the 2015 and 2017 Star Wars prequel movies.
One of Ireland’s most westerly points, Valentia Island is an area of outstanding beauty, offering unparalleled views of the Kerry coastline. The western part of the island is largely occupied by the karst landscape of the Burren. The contrast drawn between the two halves of the island is one that mimics the entire West of Ireland, although on a smaller scale.
Other sites of interest in the region include the nearby town of Waterville’s Craft Market, Derrynane House, the stunning conservation zone of Rossbeigh Beach, the popular tourist trail Iveragh Peninsula, and the Ring of Kerry itself.
