Day 3 – Golf at Carne Links Golf Club

After your full Irish breakfast this morning, you head to Belmullet. the most exposed, and probably the most isolated course in the country, is also one of the best.  Carne Links- also called Belmullet , for that is the main town on the peninsula known as the Mullet, was the last great creation of Eddie Hackett, Ireland’s most notable 20th-century designer.  Not only is it a supreme test and, for some, simply too tough a test, but it manages to encapsulate all that is good about golfing in Ireland. Overnight Diamond Coast Hotel. (B)

Day 4 – Golf at Enniscrone Links Golf Course

Morning golf at the wonderful links course of Enniscrone , another one of the many magical places on Ireland’s west coast that puts golf in perspective, for a while at least.  With awesome views over the Moy estuary and known for its excellent salmon fishing, and exquisitely beautiful Killala Bay.  Afternoon travel south to Ennis,  enjoying many interesting stories of Ireland’s past and present  from your driverguide.  Perhaps this evening you may want to check out many of the local restaurants and pubs in either the town of Doolin, world known for its great singing pubs or Ennis.  Overnight Old Ground Hotel.
