One of the late Eddie Hackett's last design projects, the Ring of Kerry Golf Club is without doubt the most spectacular heathland golf course in Ireland. Overlooking beautiful Kenmare Bay, the golf course nestles between the towering MacGillycuddy Reeks and the Caha Mountains. Majesty alone of course does not make a great golf course. The scenery helps but it's the layout, stiff challenge and excellent greens that make Ring of Kerry Golf Club one of the finest golf courses in Ireland.

Scenic and challenging golf course with a very friendly and helpful service. Hearty food was washed with creamy pints of Guinness.

We celebrated my brothers 30th birthday here. From start to finish everything was perfect. The cocktails, finger food, service and location were all top notch. Everyone had such a great time. I highly recommend this place for any special occasion.

As you enter the entrance and take the meandering road through this beautifully presentated course, in the distance the magnificent Club House. All very very inviting. The course in places is very hilly so I recommend you renting an electric trolley or a Buggy. The...More
