Nestled at the very edge of Ireland’s dramatic southwest coastline, Dingle Golf Links is a truly special place to visit.
“The most westerly course in Europe, the links itself is eloquent in any language, one of Eddie Hackett’s most bewitching creations. The setting is mesmerizing, too — with the Three Sisters rock towering behind the course, and the sea crashing against the cliffs just below. If the legendary giants of Irish lore played golf, this might be where they’d play.”
