Golf has been played on the magnificent Dooks turf since 1885, and there are few more spectacular places to visit. Set across three sand dunes at the head of the idyllic Dingle Bay, Dooks is a charming links course, whose rugged character is off-set by the stunning scenery that surrounds; across the bay are the towering Slieve Mish and Dingle mountains.

Dooks Golf Club is one of the prettiest golf courses in South West Ireland. Stunning views are matched by fast-running seaside turf has a links feel that you'd associate with any golf course that's over 120 years old.

The course is one that relies on course management rather than length off the tee in order to play to your handicap. Expect undulating and contoured greens as well as plenty of testing tee-shots.

With easy access to the likes of Dingle Golf Club, Killarney Golf and Fishing and Ring of Kerry, a round at Dooks as part of a golf break in Ireland is one that is well-recommended.
