Golf in Killarney and Kerry
There is a wonderful selection of Parkland and Links Courses within an easy drive of Killarney. The local Killarney Golf & Fishing Club on the shores of Loch Léin, has hosted the The Irish Open Golf Championship on four occasions.

This parkland course boasts panoramic views across Kenmare Bay from every hole. The architectural brief to Eddie Hackett and Ron Kirby was to design a ‘world class’ golf course that would challenge competent and experienced players from the back tees yet be playable and enjoyable for the average handicap player from middle and forward teeing areas.
“My sister and I stayed at Friars Glen in March for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer!! Mary was such a welcoming host and immediately made us feel at home. She recommended an amazing hike in Killarney National Park right down the road- it was beautiful!! Our room was cozy, clean, and had everything we needed for a terrific night of sleep. Mary and her team take such great pride in the whole property and keep it spotless. We had a delicious breakfast with homemade scones and a yummy traditional Irish breakfast! Our stay at Friars Glen was truly a highlight of the trip-don’t pass it up. We can’t wait to return soon!”
