second stop on our Ireland golf trip

We had a great round of golf here on Oct. 1st. The greens are very fast and demand a good touch. Good mix of long and short holes. Beautiful holes along the bay and great views... read more

We had a fabulous round of golf during the week. The sun shone all day Wednesday. We met some lovely friendly members along the way who graciously let us play through. The course was just beautiful. We had a meal in the clubhouse afterwards and the food was first class. Staff were so pleasant. We will be back soon !!

We had a great round of golf here on Oct. 1st. The greens are very fast and demand a good touch. Good mix of long and short holes. Beautiful holes along the bay and great views across to Galway City. This golf course was better than expected. Make sure you go in the clubhouse after your round for a pint... More

Fantastic round of golf. Great course. Afterward we had a great meal in the restaurant. Fantastic service and great staff. Found out that the place does great functions on the the second floor. Definitely will recommend this place for a great party.

We came here for Sunday lunch without booking a table which I will probably do the next time we dine here as it was extremely busy, maybe too busy. The staff couldn't be nicer but I think the could do with having a few more bodies about the place as the service was very slow in all aspects. We had... More

Played 18 holes with friends yesterday. Glorious weather added to the enjoyment. The course was in great condition and recent improvements to walkways etc were very welcome. The 'new' clubhouse was great with excellent changing facilities and a nice bar/restaurant. Service was polite and prompt. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

This is one beautiful track with a great support staff, especially helpful for women golfers new to the course. We rented Taylormade clubs & rented a cart, although most folks walk. Pretty seaside, undulating fairways, and awesome greens. Excellent greens! But the rain & winds can be harsh so be prepared. Nevertheless, this is a terrific & challenging course.

Galway Bay golf course is one of the most scenic in all of Ireland. Extremely challenging in windy conditions.

Galway Bay golf course near Oranmore has to be one of the most scenic golf courses in Ireland. It overlooks the magnificent Galway Bay, with Galway City and the Aran Islands in the distance. The course is very challenging, but a great test for the more gifted golfers.

Went here with Mum and niece but won't be inclined to try it again as food was very average, even cold (Mum's potatoes with the baked salmon) - place was packed with lady captains from around the province so maybe a bad day to visit?

Thanks for your feedback. We are disappointed to hear you didn't have a positive time at our Golf Club. We have since hired a new Chef and the food has been reviewed by a food critic so i can assure you your next experience would be better if you decide to come back and visit us. More
