Description: Nestled on the base of Kippure & Seefingan mountains in County Wicklow, this 9 hole course (with the potential of becoming 18) offers sweeping 180 degree views of the valley that gives rise to the River Liffey.

Almost completely surrounded by the Wicklow Mountains National Park, might look a bit familiar to those who've watched Braveheart. Some scenes were filmed just 2 minutes up the road.
