Killarney Golf and Fishing Club, Ring of Kerry

This club boasts two championship courses currently open, Kileen and Mahony's Point. The keenest golfers will relish the flagship, 6564-metre Killeen course over which famous English golfer Nick Faldo had an Irish Open double in 1991 and ’92. Lots of trees and water to be avoided.

Mahony’s Point, at 6,164 metres, is rated the easiest of the three courses but is a challenge for anyone off the back tees. Like Killeen, Mahoney’s has a spectacular lake and mountain backdrop which can sometimes distract golfers from their shot-making. Two finishing holes that have ruined many a card.
