In the late 1890's the 4th Earl of Dunraven employed Scottish professional, Ben Sayers to design a 9 hole golf course on the Earl's estate in Adare , and 1992 the current 18 hole course, designed by Eddie Hackett, was opened. This atmospheric parkland course is set in historic surroundings.

The ruins of the Desmond Castle, built in 1200, are a magnificent backdrop to the 1st and 15th greens, while the ruins of the Franciscan Abbey, built in 1464, dominate the centre of the course. The old -growth trees contribute to the classic beauty of this course. This is not a top championship course, but offers excellent value for money and certainly makes for a truly Irish experience.
