Course Details

Course Name: Dingle Holes: 18 Yardage: 6690 SSS: 71
Each hole of the par 72 course is carved from the natural landscape of one of the most unspoiled parts of Europe, with hazards laid down long before the game of golf was dreamt of, including a winding 'burn' that twists and turns through the entire course. These magical and mystical qualities will make your round of golf one you will never forget!

    In my opinion, this area of Dingle is the most scenic in all of Ireland, which makes the golf course a diamond in the rough. If you have the chance, stay at the Caenn Sibael Hotel in Ballyferriter, which offers great food, great accommodations and great people. Without question, the best part of my Irish vacation, can't wait to go back.

    One of the very finest courses in the World. A fabtastic test for those who like links golf. Great scenery and an almost spiritual feel to the place.

    I played this course in May 1999 and May 2002. This is a wonderful links and an easy walk. It's very reasonably priced as well.
    You won't find a warmer welcome in Ireland. The club house is modern but very comfortable.
    Give yourself plenty of time to get to the course.

    Ceann Sibeal is worthy of the drive you may need to make to reach the most westerly Golf course in Europe, in order to get there you must drive at least part of the Slea Head drive with its stunning views and History - Ryans daughter film location being one of the famous points of Intersest along the way.
    The Views from the Golf course are also stunning with the Blasket Island lying like a
    sleeping Giant on the Horizon and the historic seven sister points overlooking the Golf
    course with historic look out towers on the top of some of the peaks. Anyway the Golf course was in immaculate condition when i played im May 2002, the Sand based course simply soaks any of the rain which this region of Ireland suffers from time to time, using the Words of one of the staff 'it could be raining one day and the next morning you could go out in your slippers and they wouldn't get wet'.
    Definately a course to be tactful on with a bigger emphasis than usual to stay on the
    Fairways as from the 1st cut of rough it is unforgiving, theres also a miandering "Burn"
    that almost comes into play on all the holes, with steep banks channeling any ayward shot in the stream for a penalty.
    Watch out also for the Horse on one of the later holes - A dog leg right wit the horses
    field forming the 90 degree junction, big hittters can get over it but others should bring
    some apples as a form of apology if they slice.
    A lovely clubhouse with a shop and food facilities, altogether a wonderful way to spend 4 hours on the West coast of Kerry.

    Myself and a friend played this course on Aug. 19, 2001, we are both 5 handicaps and it was our first rounds on our trip to Ireland. We played from the back tees and the pins were tucked due to a tournament held there earlier in the day. Dingle is a great course that we both thoroughly enjoyed. The greens, fairways and tees were in very good condition and the rough is tough. The entire course is a great layout especially the par 3's and 5's. We considered it a pretty tough course from the back tees but very much fun to play. We wish we would have had time to play it again and I will on my next trip to Ireland. The staff and caddies are very friendly and accommodating. The surrounding coastline and views are magnificent; Dingle Peninsula is fine! Also, the town of Dingle is really nice, with lots of pubs, restaurants, live music, and at least one really nice hotel in the Benners Best Western.

    The greens are fairly hard, or at least they are in early May, so the bump-and-run style, so foreign to us U.S. golfers used to soft courses, is necessary.
    All in all, I found the course to be satisfying on many levels. The course is not obscenely difficult, and can accommodate the high-handicapper (my handicap is 17), but has enough deviltry built in to confound and delight the better players. The course has a natural feel and is surrounded by the incomparable beauty of the Dingle Peninsula. (Which is every bit as gorgeous (or more so!) than the more famous and more crowded Ring of Kerry).
    The course may not quite be on the level of, say, a Ballybunion, but they're not asking for anything near Ballybunion-level green fees, either. My advice? Stay in Dingle or Ballyferriter on your next trip to Ireland, and make time for a trip to Ceann Sibeal Golf Club.
