This is a wonderful opportunity to play the fabulous championship parkland golf course at Ballinrobe Golf Club which is considered by some, including Padraig Harrington, to be one of the finest in Ireland. Cloonacastle Estate, which dates back to 1238, became the new home for Ballinrobe Golf Club during its centenary year in 1995. A mature 300 acre estate provides the setting for an ever evolving, continuously maturing, magnificent championship parkland golf course. A 250 year old Estate House and some of its original farm buildings have been carefully and tastefully renovated to provide modern clubhouse facilities. In the words of Padraig Harrington:
"This must be the finest championship course in the West of Ireland, The par threes, in particular, are a delight. My favourite hole is the fifth which has a marvellous green inset into the River Robe. The tenth hole is a hole which the professionals will love, with its island green needing a very precise choice of club."
