    I player Dromoland over the summer and found it an extremely enjoyable experience even though it was a bit too challenging for my limited golfing ability :-) It ceratinly caters for the wealthy tourist in that the average player won't be buying much in the pro-shop however what's wrong with that. If the money helps keeping up the standards of a supurb course then so be it. The main drive in to the castle runs beside a number of holes and I can tell you nothing concentrates the mind on the need to hit a straight shot than the appearance of a $150,000 BMW just as you are about to begin your backswing. Once my game improves I would love to go back and even join this club

    I have played Dromoland several times. It is an excellent 18 hole golf course. The first hole is a bit of a climb but after that you will be overawed by the generally scenery. The only drawback with Dromoland is that it tends to look after its tourists more than its members.
