Faithlegg House Hotel & Golf Club: Located on the banks of the River Suir estuary in the grounds of a stately mansion (now hotel), Faithlegg boasts a wonderful parkland setting, with a course that has been moulded into a landscape of mature trees, rolling parkland and some five lakes.
Some tricky dog-legging holes, a few blind drives, well-positioned sand traps and water in play on several holes, ensures this is a course that continually probes and challenges. At a championship yardage of 6,674 and a regular yardage from the white markers of 6,284, distance is rarely the main problem in negotiating a good score at Faithlegg. The perils of the course lie more in its clever layout and slick, often wickedly contoured greens.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.

In 1819 the Power family acquired Faithlegg House from the Bolton family, who had previously built Faithlegg House in 1783. The Powers were a wealthy merchant family from Waterford City and they adorned the estate with the stags head and cross, which was the Power family crest. It remains the emblem of Faithlegg to this day. The golf clubhouse is located within a tastefully remodelled coach house, adjacent to the 18th century Faithlegg House. A midweek Golf Pass arrangement is operated by Waterford Castle, Mount Juliet and Faithlegg, giving a discounted Green Fee for a round at each Club.
