The course and its setting with a beautiful river winding its way through it, and with Azaleas and Rhoderdendrons a la Augusta, and reasonable weather made this a very special space. Sadly our day was spoilt by a fourball and two three balls in front...More

Third time playing here and it’s a must if you’re golfing in this part of Ireland 🇮🇪. Greens rapid but true and whole course immaculate. Clubhouse staff superb and the bacon and cabbage was lovely. Can’t wait to return again next year

Course in great condition considering the recent weather. A credit to ground staff. Greens deceptively slow. Gorgeous location. Will definitely play here again.

One of the most picturesque courses I have played. Set in an ancient glacial valley, this course has some most spectacular holes. The standard of the fairways, greens and bunkers were on the level the Irish do so well. I visited and played with a...More

Hi Stephen, thanks for the comment! Arklow Town is about 7mins away in a taxi and has plenty of pubs and a nightclub. Depends if you are coming for the golf or nightlife but Arklow is an option! 😊⛳️
