Irish Open Weeks - Part 3

Part three of Irish Open Weeks, covering:

  • Gort and Loughrea golf clubs in Galway
  • Killeen Castle in Meath

Killeen Castle

Not much needs to be said about the Jack Nicklaus course. Big, spacious, elegant, flowing. There's a good range of events on with green fees between €35 and €45.

Loughrea Golf Club's Open Week is already in full swing... so if you fancy golf over the Bank Holiday, a trip to Galway might be on the cards (Galway Bay are also running their Open Fortnight if you fancy two rounds close together).

Events are all Stableford Singles and the green fee is €15. Contact 091 841 049 for a tee time.


As for Killeen Castle, you have a bit more time to organise yourselves, as the Open Week runs from the 9th to the 17th August. This is Christy O'Connor designed, which suits his style as the landscape tosses and turns so much. A good and under-appreciated course.

Green fees are €15 for visitors. Contact details are on the poster above.

The 10th hole at Gort. Spectacular drive, spectacular views.

Thanks to Conor for filling me in on the Gort Open Week.
