The Shamrock Pass is one of our most popular offers. Golfers get to play 3 excellent southwest Ireland courses and experience the Wild Atlantic Way without the large expense of the top-line golf clubs. The tour includes 3 rounds of golf on 2 links & 1 parkland course.
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.
Dingle (Ceann Sibeal) Golf Links
Course Type: Links
Length: 6,680 yards
Dingle Golf Club (also called Ceann Sibeal) was founded in 1924 and it is located on Sybil Head west of Ballyferriter on the western extremity of the Dingle Peninsula. The Ballyferriter and Dingle area is rich in Gaelic tradition with the Irish language still very much a part of everyday life. The Club is known as the most westerly golf club in Europe. Each hole on this magnificent links golf course is carved from the natural landscape of one of the most unspoiled parts of Europe, with hazards laid down long before the game of golf was dreamt of, including a winding burn that twists and turns through the entire course.
As you play the course at Dingle Golf Club, the whole panorama of the Dingle Peninsula is revealed – hidden bays with small fishing villages, glorious hills and mountains and the Blasket Islands out in the wild Atlantic. This area abounds in archaeological treasures, wild flora and fauna, arts and crafts and ancient Gaelic culture.
Dooks Golf Club
Course Type: Links
Length: 6,586 yards
Located 8 miles south-west of Killorglin off the N70 Ring of Kerry route. Golf has been played here since 1889 and the course represents traditional Irish links golf at its best, offering the visitor a unique links experience in a majestic environment.
The golf links is set out on one of the three stretches of sand dunes at the head of Dingle bay. In the immediate foreground are the sand dune peninsulas of Rossbeigh and Inch and just a few miles away the whitewashed houses of Cromane fishing village provide an eye catching distraction. South eastwards are the famed McGillycuddy’s Reeks, to the Southwest are the lovely cooms and hills of Glenbeigh and across the bay to the north are the Slieve Mish and Dingle mountains.

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.
Dooks Golf Links is located along the Ring of Kerry and if you would like to take in some sights either to or from your round, there are a number of shortened routes you can take between Killarney and Dooks. Rossbeigh, one of Ireland’s finest beaches, is located a short drive from Dooks. If an insight into Ireland in the 18th century would be of interest, a visit to the Bog Village is a must, only 5 minutes from Dooks Golf Links, the village gives you a fascinating insight into how people lived and worked in Ireland in the 18th Century. The village is the only one of its kind in Europe and is one of Kerry’s leading tourist attractions. Ideal for families and tourists with spacious parking and a restaurant and bar onsite.
If you want to experience the traditional Irish pub life, look no further than Dingle. Almost every bar in the town is a throwback to the old rural Ireland, with open-hearth fireplaces, sugan chairs and impromptu ceili sessions. The best bars to visit during your time in Dingle would be A Droichead Beag, The Dingle Pub, Foxy John’s, O’Flaherty’s Pub and Dick Mack’s.
As a traditional, seaside town seafood is a must in Dingle. Most of the bars listed will serve excellent pub grub, but if you are looking for a more formal meal we would recommend a visit to Ashe’s Restaurant, Ida’s Restaurant or Doyle’s Seafood Restaurant.
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.
