Measuring 6,609 yards long and consisting of two loops, the course starts and finishes at the Clubhouse, situated on the highest point of the course. Set in a peaceful and picturesque location overlooking the Belgooly river estuary, the Ringenane course is a little shorter at 5585 yards. Sloping down to the riverbanks, and occupying a small circular peninsula, a demanding round of golf awaits on this tight course, playing into the natural slopes of the land. The remainder of the day is free for individual sightseeing or relaxation. Overnight Kinsale DBB

Play Waterville Golf Club. Golf at Waterville is a mystical experience – the beauty of classic links land, surrounded by the sea, yet forever challenged and shaped by the elements. Over 100 years old, Waterville is rated among the top 5 courses in Ireland and the top 20 links courses in the world. Links golf combines sand dunes, gorse and native grasses, firm fairways, sod faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces all intertwined by the ever changing weather. At Waterville, you should forget the lob wedge and think bump and run and creative shot making. Are you ready to walk in the footsteps of Irelands earliest golfers? After this amazing challenging course, sit back and enjoy a relaxing journey around the rest of the Ring of Kerry where breathtaking views await you at every turn. Overnight Killarney DBB
After breakfast, leave your hotel for the short journey to Tralee Golf Club. Designed and built by Arnold Palmer, this stunning setting represents a true paradise for those willing to challenge what is widely acclaimed as one of the finest links courses in the world. Smitten at first sight, Palmer would later go on record with this memorable quote: “I may have designed the first nine, but surely God designed the back nine”. It comes as no surprise to learn that, due to the majestic beauty of this setting, Palmer chose it to be his first and, arguably, his finest golf course in Europe. In the afternoon, tour the spectacular Dingle Peninsula. Perhaps not as well known as the Ivergah Peninsula where the Ring of Kerry is located, the Dingle Peninsula is less busy but every bit as beautiful. The town of Dingle is a small fishing port where you will find plenty of pubs and cafes. Continue to the west of the town where the scenery is particularly rugged with views out to the formerly inhabited Blasket Islands. Return to Killarney via the Connor Pass. Overnight Killarney DBB
