Killeen is the flagship course at Killarney Golf and Fishing Club. Killarney’s famed scenery provides an imposing backdrop to this Championship course.

sharp contours throughout. This course has been consistently ranked among the top courses in

Overlooking Kenmare Bay and the Kerry mountains this course has a challenging layout with dramatic elevation changes.

Golf at Waterville is a memorable experience – the beauty of classic links land, surrounded by the sea, and forever challenged and shaped by the elements. Over 100 years old, links golf combines sand dunes, gorse and native grasses, firm fairways, sod faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces. Forget the lob wedge, think bump and run and creative shot making.
