Welcome to Bearna Golf Club! Located at the gateway to Connemara in the Gaeltacht, with commanding views of Galway Bay, the Burren and the Aran Islands, and only five miles from Galway city. Built on Connemara moorland it is a high scenic area with features and colours and plant and animal life that you won't find elsewhere. Wonderful characteristics of gorse bushes, ditches, humps and bumps, twists and turns, all surrounded by authentic Irish peat bog, make for a thrilling round of golf.

This is a good testing golf course. You might loose some balls. Take it easy. It was not very busy the Wednesday I played there last June. Check out for cheaper Green Fee deals with the owners; they can be kind. Great views of Galway...More

The course is maturing well and is a decent test. Some great views over Galway Bay. The welcome is warm and friendly.

First few holes were nice, the rest of the course needs some work. A little expensive for the condition the course is in. Lost a lot of golf balls.

VERY TIGHT TESTING COURSE WHERE YOU WILL USE MOST CLUBS IN YOUR BAG AND PLAY A RANGE OF DIFFERENT SHOTS THROUGHOUT THE ROUND. A lot of thinking required for every shot. Irons of the tee and bump and runs are the order of the day....More
