Enniscrone Golf Club, Enniscrone, County Sligo

Founded 1918. Links Course

Amongst the most challenging traditional Irish links golf courses, Enniscrone began life in 1918 as an unrefined nine-hole course near a seaside village but the course was extended to 18 holes in 1974 under the hand of Eddie Hackett, a man who has played a huge part in shaping so many great Irish courses.

Today, Enniscrone offers 27 holes on 400 acres of magnificent links land and the Championship Links has most recently been ranked at 60th in Golf World’s top 100 courses in Britain and Ireland. Frequent host to major Irish amateur events, as more people discover the merits of Enniscrone over time, it will begin to command the international recognition it deserves.

Sightseeing & Tourist Attractions In West & North West Ireland Slieve League Cliffs The main attraction of Ireland as a golf destination may indeed be its great golf courses but the overall experience is influenced by many other factors including great accommodation options, restaurants, pubs, people, and not least its stunning scenery and superb visitor attractions. Each region offers something very different and with all locations being quite close together, it’s very easy to mix the stunning countryside and coastline with more urban attractions. We work with each of our clients to recommend what suits their trip best. You may have a full day to spend sightseeing or you may squeeze in a quick stop on the way to or from the golf course but we will make sure that you maximise your experience at all times. The below is intended as a very general guide to sightseeing in Ireland.

Often the path less travelled in terms of golf, this region has much to offer. Galway is a vibrant city with many excellent restaurants, shops and pubs and it’s a great place to spend a few days. Moving west towards Connemara, you will encounter some of the most ruggedly beautiful scenery in Ireland and you should include a visit to Connemara National Park near Letterfrack. Other recommendations include Kylemore Abbey, the Renvyle Peninsula, Aran Islands and the Quiet Man Museum in Cong.

Kylemore Abbey

Travelling north from Connemara, Westport is another lively town where you should take some time to visit Westport House, while the more energetic might enjoy a hike up Croagh Patrick, known as Ireland’s Holy Mountain. Another interesting stop is the Ceide Fields Visitor Centre near Ballycastle, while the Slieve League Cliffs and Glenveagh National Park should not be missed when in Donegal.
