The Best in Parkland Golf that the South West has to offer
Killarney Golf & Fishing Club (O’Mahony’s Point Course)
Course Type: Parkland
Length: 6,780 yards
Killarney Mahony’s is recognised as the second of the two parkland courses, along with Killeen, located at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club. The course has spectacular views of the famous Killarney lakes overlooked by the McGillicuddy Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland. The final three holes are breathtaking as you play towards the lake with the 18th described as “one of the most memorable holes in Golf”, a par three of nearly 200 yards that requires a huge carry across the corner of the lake. Discover for yourself why the 18th is the most photographed in the world.
While Mahony’s Point is the most scenic and friendly of the three courses, it presents an enjoyable challenge to golfers of all standards, the combination of undulating greens, well positioned bunkers and water hazards ensure that there is enough danger to spoil a good round.
Ring of Kerry Golf & Country Club
Course Type: Parkland
Length: 6,663 yards
Ring of Kerry Golf Club is located on the N70 main Ring of Kerry route, about 4 miles west of Kenmare, overlooking beautiful Kenmare Bay. Famed for its spectacular scenery and the intoxicating hospitality of the Kerry people, the Ring of Kerry Golf Club provides an experience not to be missed by any discerning golfer visiting Ireland’s South West. As you make your way around this par 72 championship course the demands of the golf are equally matched by the breathtaking scenery. Over-looking Kenmare Bay and nestling between the Caha Mountains and the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, the panoramic view at Ring of Kerry Golf Club has to be seen to be believed. You will experience some of the most scenic holes in Ireland, ranging from the dramatic tee shot on the 6th hole ‘Ladies View’ to the stunning backdrop of the par 3 13th ‘An Neidin’.
Beaufort Golf Club
Course Type: Parkland
Length: 6,255 yards
Beaufort is a parkland course located just 7 miles from Killarney Town. It is situated among Ireland’s highest mountains, the McGillycuddy Reeks, which provide the backdrop for this tranquil and friendly place. Carved from natural terrain, every hole offers the golfer fair but demanding shots with a lake, mature trees and deep bunkers penalising the wayward. The first nine holes are located to the west of the avenue while the back nine are nearer the mountains on the southern aspect.
Killarney Golf & Fishing Club ( Killeen Course)
Course Type: Parkland
Length: 7,252 yards
Killarney Killeen is one of two parkland courses at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, located 3 miles west of Killarney Town. It is nestled amidst the splendour of the famous Killarney lakes with the spectacular backdrop of the Macgillycuddy Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland. The Killeen Course is the jewel in the crown, offering spectacular lakeside scenery but is the most challenging of the three. It is consistently rated amongst the world’s top courses. At 7252 yards it will challenge long hitters with accuracy being vital as there is water on virtually every hole. Killeen was the host venue of the 2010 and 2011 Irish Open with England’s Ross Fisher and Simon Dyson emerging the respective winners.

I just wanted to say a belated thank you for your help in organising our trip to Clare recently.
Everything went very smoothly.
The Lahinch golf hotel was very comfortable.
The Vaughan Lodge was very good too. Lovely meal.
Lahinch golf course was too much for us really, but it was good to play it!
You made it all very effortless.
Hi there sorry it took a while to get back to you!
The golf courses were spectacular!!! And the caddies were a huge help and really good guys. The hotels you guys picked were outstanding, and check-ins were a breeze. Breakfast everyday was great, every hotel had a great assortment and a well cooked breakfast. Our driver was he was just THE BEST!!! All of us felt very safe, he was always early with a big smile on his face, he couldn’t do enough for us.
As far as our experience with Swing I hope you guys use this!
“Every aspect of our trip was perfect! If your looking for a company to handle a golf trip (we had 12 guys) do not use anyone else! We had guys come in early, and guys leave late, Swing handled everything for everyone PERFECTLY!”
I guess the best compliment you can give a company is “would I use SWING again? I wouldn’t call anyone else.”
Everything went well. Three different golf courses with a lot of run due to good weather. Dooks narrowly came out as favourite. All were spectacularly sited.
Hope to come back next year.
All staff at Clubs very friendly.
Ring of Kerry
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 recently featured in the 2015 Star Wars prequel, The Force Awakens.
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.
Killarney which has about 50 pubs, so it’s no wonder that this little town in the south-west of Ireland is one of the top destinations in the country! This is quite a number considering that Killarney is a small town, so you’re sure to find something to suit your taste. From traditional Irish pubs to lively disco bars, Killarney is sure to not disappoint. Some of the best would be The Danny Mann for Craic agus Ceol (Fun and Music), K-Town Bar for Live Music, The Grand Hotel Bar & Nightclub for great bands and late night fun, Buckley’s for Real Traditional Music, Murphy’s for Drink, Food & Entertainment and Tatler Jacks for some live sport.
The selection of top restaurants would rival the bars, with options from Pub Grub to al-a-carte to fine dining, there is an option for every taste.
