    Doonbeg Golf Club

    Norman was assisted by a team of consultants whose past projects include Kiawah Island, South Carolina, and Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland does echo the rugged charm of its trans-Atlantic neighbour. A round here is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, owing to the numerous unforgettable challenges.

    The focal point of the entire course is the astonishing 15th, which is built into the highest dunes on the site; landing the ball at the front edge of the 150-foot deep funnel-shaped green and wondering if it will stop before running off the back into no man's land is one of the most exhilarating shots in world golf.

    For serious golfers, this course is as exciting a links course as you can find on a golf tour, and is a real credit to Greg Norman.

    Set along a delightful stretch of coastline, the ocean is visible from 16 of the 18 holes.

    The exquisite Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland is the perfect complement to Greg Norman's awe-inspiring golf course. With the Atlantic Ocean churning below, visitors to Doonbeg will enjoy ultimate in luxury.

    These units are designed to guarantee that guests have a truly memorable stay, and all are decorated and furnished to welcome visitors to a ‘home away from home'. Every suite has a sumptuous living area, well-equipped kitchen, and added touches of luxury that constantly remind you of Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland's indulgent philosophy.

    The hotel also offers an array of fantastic dining options, particularly in the Long Room, where known-enthusiast Greg Norman may have influenced the superb wine list.

    The White Horses Spa is named after the waves that roll into the County Clare coastline, and was designed by the internationally-renowned Clodagh Design of New York. The spa offers the latest in health and beauty treatments, and is one the few facilities to use the acclaimed Kerstin Florian skin care range. After tackling the demanding links, try the Par Excellence Golfer's Massage, specifically designed to address muscle soreness.

    Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland commissioned chef Tom Colicchio to direct the restaurant in the Long Room. Colicchio is the mastermind behind one of Manhattan's finest eateries, the Gramercy Tavern.

    I could write pages of rave review...

    Just back from our weekend in Doonbeg - I could write pages of rave review but suffice to say that we had an awesome stay. The accommodation was first rate, the staff were incredibly warm and friendly and the golf course provided a fantastic challenge. All the arrangements worked perfectly despite my initial anxiety! I suspect that you will have some more business from our group of friends who were all incredibly impressed and we are all keen to return and complete the experience (in particular the signature par 3 14th). Many thanks again for your help and looking forward to organising more trips,

    An excellent base for our Irish golf tour...

    The Doonbeg Golf Hotel was an excellent choice as a base for our Irish golf tour. The 4 bedroom cottages are ideal for groups and were extremely comfortable and very well equipped. The two restaurants there are also really good. In addition there is a pub called Morrissey's in Doonbeg village which is very good for dinner and a bit of craic!

    As regards golf courses the group verdict was that Tralee, Waterville and the Old Head were outstanding and should never be missed - 9.5 out of 10 for each. Lahinch was 9 out of 10. The courses at Ballybunion were spoilt by the surly and unprofessional caddies. If you can out without a caddie do it! The caddies at the other courses were excellent, so it is difficult to understand why Ballybunion finds itself the odd man out. The tee timings were good, and the conclusion of all of us was that it was a very well organised trip. My intention would be to try to organise another visit to the area in the future, in the hope that we might hit a period which was a little less windy than we experienced!

    All in all this was a great golf tour and we would recommend South West Ireland to any keen golfers out there who aren’t afraid of a little wind!

    The opening hole really gets the blood pumping...

    The experience at Doonbeg (now Trump International Ireland) starts long before you’ve made it to the 1st tee, with 5* hospitality forthcoming from the moment you step out of your car. After a friendly welcome and perhaps a mooch around the amazing clubhouse, the opening hole really gets the blood pumping and really sets the tone for the rest of the course.

    This long par 5 plays down the coastline to a green surrounded my mountainous dunes and it can be both an early scoring opportunity for the longer hitter, as well as a real test to save par should the tee shot or approach get out of position.

    Each hole at Doonbeg is unique and offers its own challenge, whether it be threading a well measured drive down a narrow fairway, or judging a tricky approach into a raised green surrounded by runoff areas and massive dunes. Like many of the courses down here, the best holes on this course are among the dunes closer to the shore, where the drastic elevation changes really come into play. These holes boast plenty of spectacular views and are really memorable.

    Unfortunately some of the most spectacular holes, including the iconic par 3 14th, were destroyed by a huge storm so some of the course is currently being restored to its former glory but the overall test is still a hugely enjoyable one.

    The condition of the course is fantastic, the challenge is an enjoyable one and there are plenty of memorable holes and views to be enjoyed throughout your round. Have the camera ready on the 18th tee and should you find the centre of the 12th, don’t be too quick to reach for the putter...you may have found the bunker in the middle of the green!    

    After your round, it’s well worth spending some time in and around the clubhouse which is one of the most impressive in the region.



    Beautifully secluded on the edge of nowhere...
    Beautifully secluded on the edge of nowhere. Spectacular first hole followed by a series of demanding and lovely links holes which make for an enjoyable and testing round of golf. The staff are very welcoming and we were very well looked after, also by Eoin, our caddy for the day.

    There are lots of interesting features on the course, including the bunker in the middle of the 12th green which, of course, I went into! Unfortunately the iconic 14th has slid into the ocean and because of this, as well as another new hole and green, I'd currently (I have played the course before the storm damage took its toll) give the course six out of ten...the facilities and staff however are still of the highest order.

    With the storm damaged course in mind, Hopefully it'll be Mr Trump to the rescue!
    Magnificent view from the first tee...
    This was the second time I played Doonbeg and, once again, I really enjoyed the experience. The magnificent view from the first tee where the entire par 5 hole sweeps out in front of you is a sign of the quality to come. Unfortunately the loss of the signature par 3 (14th hole) and the shortening of the previously terrific par 4 (5th hole) due to recent storm damage has taken some of the shine away when compared to my last outing at Doonbeg. Of course, I accept that this was beyond the course's control but nevertheless, the changes in place (temporary I believe while plans for the future are cemented) do lessen the "wow" factor of these holes. If these holes could be re-instated in their previous form, Doonbeg would probably merit its fifth star.
