#1 of 18 in Golf in County Kerry
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.

  • Arguably best 36 holes in one spot in Ireland. Most genuine course and everyone is very friendly. I joined as an overseas member after playing it and love going back 2 or 3 times a year!
  • Lovely restaurant to take visitors to. Impressive view across the golf course to the Atlantic ocean.
  • Two beautiful courses with fantastic views a little disappointed with the greens on old course very welcoming staff and friendly atmosphere in clubhouse well worth number one rated golf course in Ireland
  • Great service and food . A must see. Overlooking the Atlantic ocean.
  • Wow, I have played a lot of golf and many great courses. This one is special, put it on your bucket list.
