Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful water views on multiple holes. Staff from the proshop to on the course to the pub were all incredibly friendly and welcoming.

No surprise, there is wind here and the course is challenging but playable. Greens were in excellent shape

Very enjoyable round and a few pints in the pub afterwards was great. Didn’t eat the food but we did watch what was coming out and it looked delicious.

Last but not least, the atmosphere at Dooks just felt more relaxed to me than some of the other great courses we played this trip!!!!

I highly recommend Dooks!!

My wife and I (15 hcp and 12 hcp respectively) played Dooks last week and had a very positive experience. We were a two ball and were behind four groups of four players from the US of varying capabilities. There were two young women caddying for the group in front of us and I hope the guys playing tipped them well since they were all over the place! This having been said, the weather was great the course is terrific, views spectacular, a challenging lay-out in very good condition. The only slight negatives were no practice facilities (other than a putting green) and the greens were quite slow when compared to other links courses in Ireland which we have played and it caught us a bit by surprise. Probably was due to the fact that the courses in Ireland are all coming up for coring ad sanding of greens at this time of year and they want to keep the grass a bit longer. Anyway, we had a great time with a very friendly staff and a starter who let us tee off an hour before our tee time when there was a slight break in the action. The restaurant staff were also very welcoming and friendly and the seafood chowder was excellent. Highly recommend to tick off the bucket list for Irish links courses.

The course has nice views and is a fairlinks course. The amenities are minimal, more like a municipal course in the US. We rented clubs (to avoid having to bring them on 3 week trip). Mine were fairly new Titleists, but my wife got old and sometimes rusty clubs.

Very fun, very friendly yet challenging course that is much more a locals course than some of the other top courses along this coast. We showed up at 7:45 for an 8:30 tee time and there wasn't a car in the parking lot. The head man showed up at 8, relieving us that in fact the club would be open. It was a very fun, rolling links course that I would definitely play again. Generally quiet compared to Waterville, Tralee and Ballybunion, but a nice course that is definitely worth visiting.

I cannot say enough great things about The Dooks. From the moment we drove in, we had an AMAZING experience. Dan in the pro shop went out of his way to make us feel like a VIP. Sean was our caddie and WOW. From his knowledge and history of the area to the perfection in which he can read a putt, he made our day SO much better. He is kind and patient and just a wonderful addition to our round. Then there's the course. Wow. She is a beauty! She is tough but a majestic links course. Our experience was like none other and we hope to come back again some day!

Played this magnificent links course yesterday,We were expecting a great course and boy were we not disappointed.From the lady in reception to the official starter we were made to feel so weicome.The day was overcast with low cloud cover which affected the magnificent scenery a bit but the golf course more than made up for this..The course is set up very fairly with fabulous greens and is a great test whichever tees you play from...enjoy..

We booked for the Friday Open as 3 ball and we had a fantastic day . We were paired with a member on his own and it was a godsend as he was a really nice guy who showed us around the course which was in fantastic condition.
We arrived early and had a bowl of chowder and a couple of scones and tea which were all excellent and served by lovely staff .
Very nice Pro shop and friendly staff including the starter who we had a great chat with .
Highly recommend this course as a bit of a hidden gem . The wind blew hard on the day we were there and it was tough but enjoyable .
Will definitely be back
