Killarney Golf Club (Mahony’s Point)


Munster is the largest province in Ireland, and it has much to offer with many of the best sights in the country. Famous for traditional Irish music, Munster is the heritage hub of Ireland, with Celtic castles and monasteries found throughout the region. The busy town of Killarney, in Co. Kerry, is a wellknown holiday destination with spectacular scenery, ranging from the magnificent Ring of Kerry to MacGillycuddy’s Reeks. Is it any wonder it is such a popular place to stay? Skellig Michael, at the end of the Ring of Kerry, features in the new Star Wars movie adding to the allure of this coastline drive. Farther north lie the famous Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare. The Cliffs are a must see attraction for all visitors, the outstanding scenery stretching for miles along the coast.>Nestling under the imposing MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, and clinging to the edges of Lough Leane, you will bask in Ireland’s beauty, regardless of whether you’re playing golf.
With the second course, Mahony’s Point, alongside, Killarney Golf & Fishing Club is a vibrant, popular and essential addition to Co. Kerry’s world famous links golf offering.
**Mahony’s Point Golf Course** is a sweet foil to the muscularity of its Killeen sibling. They brush up against each other a couple of times, sharing the same terrain and the same stunning scenery. Indeed, a combination of their holes once formed the original 1930s course. But Mahony’s Point is a gentler, quieter affair, with more accessible fairways and greens, as well as a more relaxed pace. While Killeen was being adorned with impressive modern design flourishes (completed in 2006), Mahony’s Point was left well alone. This is old school parkland and while the course is undergoing some upgrades (under Ken Kearney) that old school charm is set to remain. (By Kevin Markham – Editor, DG Ireland).
