Golf Course/
Ballybunion - Old

Ballybunion is one of the most highly regarded courses on the southwest coast of Ireland, and for good reason. This particular stretch of coast is home to some of the largest, most formidable dunes seen on links land anywhere and provide a thrilling challenge. Golfers will want for nothing at this simple, yet magnificent links course.

The Old Course at Ballybunion is an unyielding test of skill and endurance. It wastes no space on weak holes and, instead, uses large dunes and ruthless bunkering to challenge ambitious golfers.

"If sheer pleasure is the yardstick, then Ballybunion's Old Course gets my vote as the No. 1 in the world," said famous English golf writer Peter Dobereiner.

Golfers enjoy gloriously green hills, rolling sandhills, and breathtaking views of the Atlantic as they are pushed to their limits on the Old Course.

The Old Course exudes a majestic feel that simply cannot be compared to any other course on earth. With beautifully contoured fairways that tumble down through a blanket of grassy dunes, it's no wonder these challenging holes have been consistently rated among the top courses in the world.
