Golf

At Great National Ballykisteen Golf Hotel

Complementing the Ballykisteen Hotel, the golf resort includes a superb 18 hole, 72 par Des Smyth designed championship golf course which was opened in 1993 and was formerly the famous Ballykisteen Stud. 

Nestled in the heart of the Golden Vale, the golf course is set only minutes from Limerick Junction, County Tipperary in tree-sculptured surroundings against a backdrop of the Galtee Mountains. Constructed and maintained to the highest standards the course is distinguished by the superb quality of the putting surfaces. Smyth made excellent use of the natural contours, carefully positioning each hole and incorporating an abundance of bunkers and water hazards, a feature of 11 holes.
