A tough course for professionals and novices alike. Despite this, the Ring of Kerry golf course is playable, and enjoyable, to players of all handicaps.

Ring of Kerry Golf Club is nestled between the Caha Mountains on the Beara Peninsula and MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland. Designed by Eddie Hackett, this sand-based, 18-hole championship course is a unique mix of parkland and links that were carved into the moors that used to occupy the land.

Although the golf course is hilly in places, the views you will have of Kerry and Kenmare Bay are worth every effort. The glorious mountain peaks form an ever-present backdrop that is best taken in from the 6th ‘Ladies View’ and 13th ‘An Neldin’ holes.

Things to do

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 Michael Rocks. Rising from the Atlantic Ocean to an impressive 700 feet high, the rocks are home to vast colonies of seabirds. One of Ireland’s most westerly points, Valentia Island is an area of outstanding beauty, offering unparalleled views of the Kerry coastline.

Other areas of interest include the nearby town of Waterville’s Craft Market, Derrynane House, the stunning Rossbeigh Beach, the popular tourist trail Iveragh Peninsula, and the Ring of Kerry itself.
