Golfing

Kerry is home to some of the finest Golf courses in the country. Visit some of the websites below for more information on the different golf courses in the area.

Killorglin

Killorglin is the closest course, and is only a 5 minute drive from the bar. An 18 hole parkland course, Par 72, at amazing value. Designed by Eddie Hackett, Irelands foremost golf architect of his generation. The course on the one hand is overshadowed by the majestic Macgillicuddy Reeks Mountain Range (including Carrauntouhill, Ireland's highest mountain) and on the other it enjoys magnificent panoramic views of Dingle Bay and the Slieve Mish Range beyond

Dooks

Dooks is another course that is a 15 minute drive away.It is a beautiful links course in Co. Kerry set amid the blue waters of Dingle Bay and surrounded by Slieve Mish, the Dingle Mountains and McGillycuddy Reeks. A truly magical location for a stunning golf course.

Beaufort

Part of the Churchtown Estate and located only 4 miles from Killorglin and 7 miles from Killarneythis 7004 yard Parkland Kerry Golf Course is carved from natural terrain and is suited to all standards of golfer.

Surfing

Its one of the fastest growing sports in Ireland, and Kerry has some of the best surfing beaches in Ireland. 3000 miles West and 7000 South the Atlantic Ocean's energy is released on Ireland's Coast from time to time causing large swell's to break on our Coastline brining excellent surfing conditions !

Rossbeigh is only ten miles from the bar, and Inch strand is is also close. Further on is Castlegregory beach, which is a favourite for many of the local surfers. Each of these beachs have their own surf schools, where you can rent both wetsuits and boards if you don't have your own.

Puck Fair takes pride of place as one of Ireland's 3 oldest fairs, along side the Auld Lamass Fair, Ballycastle and the Great October Horse Fair, Ballinasloe. Events include a traditional parade and coronation of King Puck (the goat), horse fair, street entertainment with buskers from all over Ireland and further a field.
