President Bill Clinton and professional golfer Tom Watson have played Ballybunion Golf Club, one of the best link courses in the world. Though its location in southeastern Ireland makes it a difficult course to get to, many think the natural beauty of this golf destination makes the trip worth it. This historic club was founded in 1893 and offers two courses, the Old Course and Cashen Course. The Old Course was home to the Irish Open of the 2000 European Tour. You can book a day to play on one or both of these two famous courses.

  • Did not play it bit did have a chance to walk around. Beautiful course right along the sea side. Tom Watson plays the course. It was a hilly true links course and if given the time and chance I would have loved to play it
  • The restaurant was busy and the staff were very friendly. However, a toasted special I ordered was miserly - a thin sandwich with tiny side dressing of coleslaw and two pieces of cucumber was a very poor offering. I asked for a spoon - two nearby customers also asked for spoons to be told there isn’t a spoon in the house. What a poor impression to give to international visitors. More effort is required.
