Ceann Sibéal Golf Club
If you're searching for a golfing experience surrounded by stunning natural beauty, Ceann Sibéal Golf Club is the perfect destination for you. Nestled in a picturesque green valley between the majestic hill of Cruach Mharthain to the south and a ridge of jagged peaks to the north, this links course is scenically positioned on the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, just 14km from Dingle.
Originally founded in 1924 as Dingle Golf Club, the course had two temporary homes on the outskirts of Dingle before developing into the 18-hole, Par 72, 6737-yard course it is today. The original design was by Eddie Hackett, with the back nine developed in the 1980s and some redesigning by Christy O'Connor Junior in the 1990s.
Each hole is full of tricky undulations, swales, and hazards that were laid down long before the game of golf was even dreamed of, including a winding burn that twists and turns through the entire course. The signature hole, Ifreann, or Hell in English, is a must-play for any golfer.
As much a part of the experience at Ceann Sibéal Golf Club as the course itself is the lively clubhouse, resounding with the camaraderie of friends and locals enjoying wonderful food and atmosphere in relaxed and casual surroundings. Upstairs, the club bar and dining room offer spectacular views over the Links, with a menu created from fresh local ingredients supplied by both local farms and the sea.
Ample parking is available, and a full hire service is on offer for clubs, buggies, and carts. The pro shop is also fully stocked with leading brands and branded merchandise, making it the perfect place to pick up a souvenir of your time at Ceann Sibéal Golf Club.
