1. Re: golf courses for above average golfers/b*b's nearby

With only 7 days you may well stay in the south, but in case you venture "up north" into Northern Ireland, we have some great courses with B&Bs nearby. There is a new B&B The Links opposite Royal Portrush (Darren Clarke plays here and the Senior Open has been held here) which gets very good reviews. I would maybe avoid it on a Wednesday or Saturday night though as it is near to a nightclub which opens until 1am Wed and Sat (sometimes Fridays) so you might have noise from people walking home a little bit drunk! Should be quiet enough at all other times though. Close to the famous Giant's Causeway, Bushmills Distillery etc as well:)

Ireland has over 400 golf courses ranging from parkland to links courses. Here is a link that might be useful

Our local club, the most westerly course in Europe, does a three course deal with other clubs in the Kerry area

If Kerry and the south west were of particular interest, flying in and out of Shannon would be more convenient

They are currently offering €35 B&B per night per person sharing for November. It would be more expensive in high season. I would expect of the order €50+, but I'm only guessing. Being a resident I don't have need of B&Bs in Dingle, although I know Pax House well and can vouch for its quality
