2 Ballybunion


If there is an equivalent to the Old Course at St Andrews as a magnet to golfers in Ireland then Ballybunion must be it. Situated on a wild stretch of coastline where the Atlantic breakers crash onto the shore this is one of those courses that is an adventure to play.

Tom Watson said that before anyone builds a golf course they should play Ballybunion. Often placed in the top 10 courses in the world this is a must play course if you come to the Emerald Isle.
