The sister of arguably the finest golf course in Ireland, visiting golfers find it hard to compare the Ballybunion experience to any other.

The Cashen course, Ballybunion

The second course in Ballybunion Golf club is the Cashen course. It’s going to be hard for any course to measure up to its older sister, but the Cashen course does a fine job of just that. The Cashen course is slightly more exposed to the elements and with higher sand dunes it can be quite unforgiving if you find yourself lured in by its flirtatious design.

Highlights

The 16th – this par 3 runs along the Atlantic Ocean and is a birdie opportunity in calm conditions.

Facilities

The club offers both a driving range and multiple practise greens to allow you to be fully prepared for your round. As an added treat, to help the body unwind after your round, steam room facilities are available.

The modern Ballybunion Clubhouse has an excellent Pro Shop, stocked with your golfing essentials and a wide range of branded gifts.

Food & Drink

For food, you can either visit Spikes Bar next to the putting green where you can grab a bite before teeing off. Or you can visit the fully catered Lounge and Restaurant upstairs for dinner and a pint following your round.

Things to do

Ballybunion beach is a popular spot for strolling among the locals and, at low tide, tidal caves will become accessible to those looking to explore the hidden coastline. These beaches are also popular for horse riding with plenty of trekking options from exhilarating beach rides to stunning woodland treks.

In the town, 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. The town’s theatre holds performances of traditional Irish dance, music and literature. There is an excellent selection of top bars and restaurants to choose from in the town.

For those interested in the history of international relations between America and Ireland, the first statue of Bill Clinton on public display can be located within the town streets.
