Legendary Courses of Cork and Kerry


Along the shores of the wild Atlantic in Counties Cork and Kerry can be found some of the most famous golfing in all of Ireland. Indeed the world, for these are the courses whose name commands instant brand recognition, places like Lahinch and Waterville, Tralee and Ballybunion. These courses have earned their reputation, classic links courses with superb scenery, steeped in golfing heritage. Be forewarned, as greens fees are expensive and tee times often scarce. But playing these courses is a rare treat not to be missed.

Beyond the golfing allure, Cork and Kerry are fabulous tourist destinations. For here lies the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Killarney, and West Cork. Among these scenic wonders are lively towns such as Kinsale, Clonakilty, Kenmare, Killarney, and Dingle, fabulous for their culture and craic. Imagine this dramatic coastal region as a hand: with its five peninsulas jutting into the sea. Each peninsula-- Dingle, Iveragh, Beara, Sheep's Head, Mizen Head-- has abundant with cultural, historic, and scenic appeal. Well worth exploring! You really can't go wrong with a visit to this spectacular region.
