Heading west on the N7, enter Limerick city and just before the city centre turn left at Parkway roundabout direction Tralee / Cork / Waterford (N20 / N24). After 1 km go straight over Tipperary roundabout and follow direction Cork / Tralee (R512). After o.3 km turn left at Killmallock roundabout, direction Killmallock. After approx 7km, in Ballyneety, turn right into Limerick County G&CC.
Ballyneety Golf Club (formerly Limerick County Golf & Country Club): After you've loosened-up on three good opening holes, a dramatic climb at the par-5 4th takes you to the highest part of the course. Here you'll enjoy stunning views in all directions over Limerick County - quite breathtaking on a clear day. The par-4 5th hole is equally dramatic as it plunges back downhill. This front-nine hill needs to be climbed and descended once more, before you arrive back at the rotunda clubhouse, via the short par-5 9th, an excellent driving hole played from elevated tees.
After plenty of spectacular front-nine scenery and some impressive elevation changes, you'll find the back-nine is laid out on flatter terrain. Although elevation change is less present, water takes over as the principal challenge to your golf game. Small but threatening ponds will need to be avoided at the par-3 13th and 15th holes, and the short par-4 12th and 17th.
Throughout your round, the large seriously sloping greens will test your putting game, not least at the three-tiered green of the short uphill par-4 7th. Overall a very pleasant and relatively open parkland course, where you are sure to remember the front-nine and the spectacular views it offers.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

Adare Manor is the former seat of the Earls of Dunraven and is a masterpiece of towers, turrets and stonework ornamentation, standing proudly on the bank of the River Maigue. The house is initially reminiscent of a chateau, but many of its features are shared by great residences of the era in Britain and Ireland. All the guest rooms are individually designed – each with its own personality and proportion - many featuring little details added by Lord and Lady Dunraven in the 1800s.
