A guide to Blarney golf resort

The Blarney Golf Resortis a luxury hotel, spa and golf resort that attracts visitors from across the world to the south west tip of the Emerald Isle, but most people come for one thing: the golf.

A challenging course for golfers of various skill levels, Blarney Golf Course was co-designed by two time Major winner John Daly, his only project of this kind in Europe. The 6712 yard, par 71 course lies in the Shournagh Valley, eight kilometres north west of Cork City, with panoramic views of the rolling green landscape of one of Ireland's most beautiful counties.

The Blarney Golf Resort boasts a full service clubhouse and a professional shop with a Professional Golf Team at the ready to answer questions. Membership fees start at €1,200 a year.

Away from the fairway, the resort caters for a wide range of guests. The four star hotel offers a choice of 62 guest rooms and 44 lodges dotted around the grounds. The AA Rosette award-winning Inniscarra restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. Food and drinks are available in the club house at the Lion’s Den Bar & Bistro. For those not interested in a round of golf, the therapeutic spa is an alternative. Equipped with swimming pool, gym, Jacuzzi and steam and sauna rooms, it's a haven of healthy living and tranquility. The holistic spa offers a range of beauty and relaxation treatments including facials, massages, waxing and nail care.

The resort caters for a range of special occasions including weddings, conferences and civil ceremonies. Details and prices can be found on the website at blarneygolfresort.com.
