Golf Courses in Connemara, all under 1 hour from Renvyle House
In additon to our own 9-hole (Par 3) golf course on the grounds of the hotel, there are three other golf courses within an hour's drive of Renvyle House.
Connemara Golf Links at Ballyconneely is about a 40-minute drive from Renvyle House Hotel. The golf course is on the Mannin Peninsula, west of Ballyconneely. Situated in an area of outstanding beauty renowned for its scenery, it is a full-blooded links course with none of the duneland features of its north Connaught neighbours.
There is another great golf course at Westport Golf Club, again under an hour's drive from Renvyle House.
And on the N59 into Galway at Oughterard there is the Oughterard Golf Club.
There is also to the Bearna Golf Club. Located at the gateway to Connemara in the Gaeltacht, with commanding views of Galway Bay, the Burren and the Aran Islands, and only five miles from Galway city. Built on Connemara moorland it is a high scenic area with features and colours and plant and animal life that you won't find elsewhere. Wonderful characteristics of gorse bushes, ditches, humps and bumps, twists and turns, all surrounded by authentic Irish peat bog, make for a thrilling round of golf.
