Killarney Golf Club

Killarney, County Kerry

"Rapturous beauty" are words that well describe Killarney Golf Club. Idyllically set among the lakes and mountains of Killarney, Ireland's legendary hub of tourism, Killarney Golf Club has become an alluring epicenter for golf.

Killarney Golf Club is comprised of three 18 hole courses, each noted for their character, beauty and challenge. The flagship of our three courses is Killeen. Situated beside the famous lakes of Killarney, Killeen challenges the longest of hitters and, with water on almost every hole, demands accuracy on nearly every shot. Killeen has played host to numerous golf tournaments, including twice hosting the Irish Open, Killeen is truly one of the greatest courses in the country.

Mahony's Point, is a lovely course situated beside the famous lakes of Killarney. With a combination of well undulated greens, well positioned bunkers and water hazards, Mahony's Point provides a good test for golfers of all skill levels. The latest addition to our Club, Lackabane is still in its infancy but is already proving to be quite a challenge. At 6410 metres it is of championship standards.

Both the Killeen Course and Mahony's Point are superb golf courses, which should be played if at all possible, while Lackabane, though also well laid out, probably needs a while to mature. The scenery is simply breathtaking.

The sport enjoys a long history on the shores of Killarney, having first been played on site in 1891 on a nine hole inland course. Then in 1939 it was expanded to an 18 holes, bringing the course to the lakeside and adding outstanding beauty. The sport's evolution continues among the plush fairways and woods of these parkland wonders.

Our Take

Playing golf along the shores of Killarney's lakes, in this magnificent valley surrounded by mountains, holds an irresistible appeal. Though the region is heavily infested with coach tours, there's a reason for Killarney's great popularity. You won't be disappointed by adding Killarney on your Irish golfing itinerary. The golfing is top-notch and the destination provides a wealth of non-golfing amenities: from superior hotels, ample shopping, fine dining, a lively nightlife, plentiful sessions of traditional music, and a wealth of outdoor activities.
