Trump International Golf Links Doonbeg
Luxury by the sea
In 2014 Donald Trump bought for a figure of approximately 15 million euros the complex that until then was called Doonbeg Golf Club. Today it is called Trump International Golf Links Doonbeg.
The five-star Resort has more than 200 rooms and luxury is the main feature of this hotel.
Beyond its fabulous golf course, there are many beach activities that can be done.
Trump International Doonbeg Golf Links
- Two-time Open winner Greg Norman was commissioned to design the course, which opened in 2002.
- Mr. Martin Hawtree carried out the redesign of the course after the Resort was acquired by Trump.
- In his original design, Norman made good use of the movement of the sand dunes. That is why the field has a lot of unevenness. In addition, 16 of the 18 holes have ocean views, and several are attached to Doughmore Bay.
These rooms are average 385 square feet and are furnished to exceptional standards.
Classic Links Cottages
These luxurious self-catering cabins have been built to the highest standards, with French limestone used for flooring and marble cladding in the bathrooms, and all have views of the fairways or local farmland. Luxury cabins range in size from 1,100 square feet to 2,800 square feet.
