“Every golfer dreams of playing at Dromoland Castle Golf and Country Club… Combining gentle hills, ancient trees and unexpected water hazards, the immaculately-maintained course presents challenges and thrills for golfers of all abilities.”
Dromoland Golf Club is recognised as one of the finest conditioned parkland courses in the country: an impressive 18-hole par 72 championship course set on the stunning 450-acre estate of Dromoland Castle and spanning 6824 yards for men and 5242 yards for ladies. It’s Clare countryside at its most beautiful, with the River Rine flowing through the splendid parkland – while tight fairways, fast greens, ancient trees and manicured bunkers delight amateur and professional golfers alike.
The course was built in 1961 – a jewel in the crown of the 16th century baronial Dromoland Castle and originally the residence of eight generations of the O'Brien family and other local Gaelic families during the 16th century.

While You're Here
While at Dromoland you’ll enjoy many on-site attractions – from boating on the lake to archery classes, falconry, or simply enjoying a stroll around the beautiful estate. And here in the heart of County Clare, on the Wild Atlantic Way, there’s a wealth of sightseeing at hand. The magnificent Cliffs of Moher are a short drive away and are Ireland’s favourite visitor attraction. They have faced the Atlantic for over 350 million years, stretching for 8km (5 miles) as the crow flies and reaching 214m (702 feet) in height at their highest point. With views across to the Aran Islands, Galway Bay and Connemara, they will simply take your breath away. Other must-sees in the area include the wild and beautiful Burren, as well as the famous village of Bunratty with its signature Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, and some excellent shopping and restaurants.
The bustling and quaint capital town of County Clare, Ennis, is only 16 mins away. This medieval town, with its cobbled streets, winding streets and lanes is the perfect place to wander around and sight-see – from the old Ennis Friary to the beautiful Ennis Cathedral and Clare Museum. Ennis is also known as the Boutique Capital of Ireland – with many independent, stylish and quirky shops.
