carne LOGOThe Course

Carne is a links course on one of the most westerly points in Ireland. Its location is on Belmullet Peninsula, one and a half miles west of Belmullet town with breathtaking views over the wild Atlantic Ocean.

The layout of the course offers a variety of interesting holes with each having a unique character.  They require some creative shot-making and skilful course management.  The ubiquitous Atlantic wind makes the second nine a real challenge on the 11th, 14th and 17th in particular – a gem of a links well worthy of a visit.

What to See and Do

Iniskea Islands

Situated on the west coast of the Mullet Peninsula the islands are rich in amazing scenery and rare wildlife, making them both archaeologically and ecologically sensitive areas. Half of the Irish wintering population of Barnacle geese make the islands their home. The low-lying coasts of the islands are also home to a large number of the grey seal while occasionally dolphins and whales can be seen out at sea.

Céide Fields Visitor Centre

The Céide Fields are the oldest known field systems in the world, over five and a half millennia old. The unique Neolithic landscape of world importance has changed our perception of our Stone Age ancestors. The remains of stone field walls, houses and megalithic tombs are preserved beneath a blanket of peat over several square miles. This visitor’s centre allows you to experience the prehistoric landscape, a natural wild ecology of blanket bog, dramatic cliffs and a much-acclaimed building which has received Ireland’s most prestigious architectural award.
