I booked the course on Golf now and nowhere did it say that they had plugged and sanded the greens 7 days earlier. Not only were the greens in terrible shape so was the rest of the course, tee boxes, sand traps, etc... very disappointed.

One of the best in Ireland, it is a stunning course that is very well appointed. Every hold packs a challenge, with numerous fairway bunkers ready to punish what could be a normally solid drive. Not overly hilly but there is some elevation change. Also not an excessive amount of water holes, but it does come into play on more than a few holes. My only complaint...it's too far away for me to consider joining!

Killeen Castle is simply said impressive. The clubhouse, the layout, the perfect - yet challenging, undulating and lighting fast greens, carpet smooth fairways.. It's simply a joy to play.

While the above is true, you will be challenged. Big bunkers are strategically positioned, so that the long hitters will need accuracy. For anyone with a bit shorter drives, almost all par 4s seem like par 5s. Putting is like you see on TV. You need to read the lines and sometimes putt in 90 degree ankle to the hole.

This is a great track, and the scenery is wonderful. Just prepare to be challenged..

Have been itching to play here for a while now and expectations were high. Needless to say Kileen did not disappoint as its course is up there with any parkland course i have played in Ireland. Beautifully laid out and with every hole posing a different type of challenge it is a course that will have you using every club in the bag especially your sand wedge! I hit the ball quite well on the day but still ended up in bunkers on 10 of the 18 holes! Cant wait to go back.

Very enjoyable Golf Course which requires good play to get the reward of a good score. If you do get it you will enjoy the satisfaction of having earned it.
The food & service afterwards in the clubhouse was excellent.
The showers are the best I've experienced anywhere yet.
All in all a great day out.
