Golf Course Beach / Pool Club
President Bill Clinton and professional golfer Tom Watson have played Ballybunion Golf Club, one of the best link courses in the world. Though its location in southeastern Ireland makes it a difficult course to get to, many think the natural beauty of this golf destination makes the trip worth it. This historic club was founded in 1893 and offers two courses, the Old Course and Cashen Course. The Old Course was home to the Irish Open of the 2000 European Tour. You can book a day to play on one or both of these two famous courses.

  • Absolutely love these courses old and new. Just heaven.
  • Finest course in Ireland located in Ballybunion beautiful part of Ireland friendly to visitors
  • Great course. Brilliant condition
  • Great course and club house
  • Did not receive first class service today. No caddys avalible, grumpy starter because the golf course was behind setting up our group. Marshall came out to drop off a caddy then that didn't happen. So no caddy all day. But still A FUN course, caddy would have help quite a bit as there are some tricky holes and greens to read.
