“Great first taste of Irish Golf”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

My wife and I were in Ireland visiting from the US and did not plan to golf. But at the last minute, felt that we may regret it later, decided to play. Knowing nothing about golf in Ireland, chose Birr Gold Club as it was on our way back to Dublin. The green fees, club rentals, and buggy rental came to less than 100 Euros, for two! Can't beat that. The staff was very accommodating, the course was in great shape (founded in 1893) and just challenging enough to make it fun. It is a bit of a drive from the motor way, so plan on needing some extra time to and from the course.

“Despite awful weather course in great shape”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

Really enjoyed playing this course, very good value for €20 fees, despite the recent downpours the course was not torn up and the greens were in great shape. I was returning to the game after some back trouble and was disappointed when they had no electric trollies to rent but the pro in the shop got me sorted with someone's Trolly. A big thanks

“Truly friendly course”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Great members made us feel very welcome. Really interesting course although the new holes are a little bland. The eskers make it a real inland links. You won't meet nicer people though. Would deffo recommend every golfer play here.
