Lahinch, which is located just over 30 miles from Shannon Airport in Co. Clare, has often been described as 'the St Andrews of Ireland'. It's a traditional out and back links course which sits on the Atlantic coast and is a favourite with many of the thousands upon thousands of golfing visitors who flock to the Emerald Isle year after year. While the Old Course measures just under 6700 yards, the Castle Course is much shorter at less than 5600 yards. But the par-70 layout is no pushover and you'll have to be on your game to get round in a good score. Visitors are welcome all week on both the Lahinch courses and caddies are available on request.
