For those planning a golf break in Cork then it is worth noting that Fota Island Golf Club has been listed in the Top 10 Golf Courses in South West Ireland by usa.golfbreaks.com. With so many great and iconic golfing destinations dotted around the south west region of Ireland then it’s always an honour to make such a high calibre list.

Golfbreaks.com handpick a selection of the finest golf courses and hotels in the UK and Ireland to create great golf vacations. Remarking that golf courses in Ireland’s south west has “10 of the best, from one of the very best golf destinations on the planet!”, it would seem to be the ideal region to plan your golfing break or if you’re seeking a luxury golf hotel in Ireland.

Fota Island Resort not only offers a challenging 27 hole golf course but also the refinement of its luxury 5 star hotel which has played host to the hugely successful 2015 Irish Open.

In the article, golfbreaks.com had lots of nice things to say about the Cork golf club:

Fota Island is one of Ireland’s plush resorts with a big hotel, exceptional facilities and a 27 hole golf course. It has hosted the Irish Open three times and it sweeps through mature and spacious woodland. The resort covers 580 acres of the island so it is an idyllic setting. It may not, however, be that quiet as the Fota Wildlife Park is the island’s only other resident… and the lemurs and monkeys can create quite the racket at feeding time.

This is a sweet round of golf where the trees, the lakes and the fairways are big and generous. This is about pleasure not punishment and the significant elevation changes show off holes to full advantage – on the famous par five 18th most notably.

The south west of Ireland encompasses some stunning coastline with an array of high quality golf courses in the counties of Cork, Kerry and Clare. So for those considering a bucket list trip then Ireland’s south west and, of course, Fota Island are a definite must!
