This is a great place to play golf. Value is good as well, and if you travel in a group it's even better.
It's in one of the driest parts of Ireland, in the South-East, and easy to get to both from Dublin and from Wales on the ferry.
There are two courses, the Old, which is 18-hole and 6700 yards, and the 12-hole Burrow course.
I played the Old, on one of the only wet days! It opens with a savage dog-leg hole, that needs care, especially if you try it after an Irish lunch. you know the sea is close, and after three holes there is a wonderful stretch from the 4th to the 8th when there is the gold course, a wall, and then the beach and the water. If the wind is blowing from the West, watch out! Double back inland until the beautiful short 14th, and then you're back by the sea.
It's invigorating and a proper links, rugged and windswept. My favourite holes were the 7th, 14th and 18th.
There;s a great website with pictures to whet your appetite.
Costs - between 50 and 70 euros for the Old Course and between 20 and 25 for the Burron.
Atmosphere - very friendly and welcoming to every golfer.
