Golf in West of Ireland

One of the last truly ‘Irish’ regions remaining in the country, many still speaking Irish Gaelic as a first language, this shouldn’t put the golfer off as visitors are warmly welcomed. Although not as well known, this is a spectacular location for a golf break. The challenging course of Connemara lends itself to spectacular views of the harsh Atlantic coastline. Slightly inland the Galway Bay Course which was designed by Christy O’Connor Jnr, has a strong American feel to it, which is a talking point amongst visiting golfers, it is sure to live up to expectations.

One links course that always impresses is the Carne Links, which ranks highly in Irish golf courses. The course is set in the impressive local dune system with far reaching views to the islands off the west coast. The Golf aside the coastal cliffs surrounding Galway and along the west coast are the highest on the island and attract a number of visitors annually. The large port town of Sligo is the ideal location to play a number of quality courses, with Sligo County Course being the cream of the crop, this course is ranked 7th on the Island and with its views over Benbulben and the Dartry Mountains it is easy to understand why. Croagh Patrick overlooks the course at Westport, this is Irelands ‘holy’ mountain and is quite a sight when teeing off from a number of holes along the course. This is the perfect region for groups with the lively traditional music that is widely available in a number of bars in the historic town of Galway and surrounding villages.
