Expert Review

Despite its baronial facade, the plush Lodge at Doonbeg Golf Club in western County Clare is less than a decade old. The coastal lodge invites guests to enjoy activities like Irish-inspired treatments at the White Horses Spa, tastings with a whiskey sommelier, and outings to the Cliffs of Moher. The crescent-shaped Greg Norman-designed course hugs 1.5 miles of dune-specked beach and catches plenty of wind. The links are of a naturalistic design; during construction, many of the greens and fairways were simply mowed. A special program at the lodge even puts guests in touch with a genealogist to help them trace any Irish ancestry.
