Ballybunion attracts Europe's best
Ballybunion Golf Club had the honour of hosting The Irish Open for the first time on the links of the Old Course at Ballybunion in 2000.

"Having played the Old Course many times since my first visit in 1981, I am now of the opinion it is one of the best and most beautiful tests of links golf anywhere in the world."
"I heard so much about the place, and I am not disappointed"
