PARKNASILLA GOLF COURSE
Parknasilla Golf Course is a 12-hole course, set beside the ruins of Derryquin Castle, the original castle on the Parknasilla estate; it is just a few hundred metres from the hotel. The course has spectacular views of Kenmare Bay and the rich subtropical vegetation of the area provides a colourful backdrop to the manicured fairways.

Playing this course is a must if you are in Kerry, all of the holes are eminently playable by higher handicap golfers. The twelve-hole course has a par of 69 (18 holes) with one par five and two par threes. A clever mix of open and tight fairways gives the golfer an opportunity to open the shoulders safely at some holes while doing so at one's peril on others.

The sand based greens provide true putting surfaces all year round. The most memorable holes at Parknasilla's new course are the eleventh and twelfth. A ball over shooting the green finds the saltwater of the Atlantic Ocean. The twelfth is spectacularly placed in Kenmare Bay, between the large pines that skirt both sides of the fairway.

Golf Clubs and other equipment are available for hire.
Prices:

* €25.00 per day for hotel residents
* €80.00 per week for residents
* €35.00 per day for non-residents

                  The name Parknasilla comes from the Irish, Pairc na Saileac, meaning the 'Field of the Willow Trees'. Today Parknasilla Hotel, Co Kerry, is one of Ireland's finest resort hotels, encompassing 500 acres of onsite facilities. Parknasilla has a rich heritage dating back to 1692, attracting such literary luminaries as George Bernard Shaw to its beautiful location. This Kerry hotel promises exceptional standards of service within plush surroundings and a warm Irish welcome for all guests. Guests can dine in style in one of Ireland’s finest epicurean centres, the exquisite 'Pygmalion Restaurant' or relax and unwind in one of the fine bars or sun drenched lounge areas, whilst enjoying the wonderful views.

                  The 500-acre estate at Parknasilla Hotel, Co Kerry, has been used to provide guests with a wide range of on-site facilities. With its balmy sub tropical vegetation, mountainous backdrop and tranquil waters it is a magnificent setting for outdoor activities. Parknasilla is a true resort, offering miles of walks, tennis, a private golf course, archery and clay pigeon shooting. With a newly designed spa with large open windows overlooking the sea and plush landscape you will be truly lost in relaxation at Parknasilla Hotel.

                  KERRY AND THE LOCAL AREA & ACTIVITIES

                  If you feel like venturing outside the 500-acre grounds of Parknasilla Hotel then there is an abundance to see and do. Enjoy a pint in the village of Sneem just minutes from the hotel or take in the beauty of the Ring of Kerry.

                  Sneem

                  The Gaelic word for 'knot' is Sneem. Today the town of Sneem is called 'The Knot in the Ring' (of Kerry). The town is set at the head of the Sneem estuary between Kenmare and Waterville. It is uncertain exactly when the town was established, but it is referenced on a map dated 1756. Today Sneem is a peaceful and romantic little village offering visitors unspoiled nature, fishing and a sheltered harbour at Oysterbed Pier. The town won the National Tidy Towns Award in 1987 and the National Landscape Award in 1997. Click here for more information on Sneem.

                  Ring of Kerry:

                  This is one of the most popular activities in Kerry – a scenic drive of 110 miles of gorgeous coastal and mountain scenery, enveloping the towns of Killorglin, Glenbeigh, Caherciveen, Waterville, Sneem, Kenmare, and Killarney.

                  Killarney National Park, Muckross:

                  Within the National Park is Muckross House - a magnificent Victorian mansion and one of Ireland's leading stately homes, exquisite gardens and Muckross Traditional Farm, where three separate working farms depict real life farming traditions of rural Ireland.

                  Ladies View:

                  If you drive the Ring of Kerry you will enter the Killarney National Park at Ladies View. The most famous and photographed view of Killarney is to be seen at Ladies´ View approximately 11 miles from Killarney town, on the N71 to Kenmare.

                  Killarney Lakes:

                  All weather cruises on Lough Lain are available by covered watercoach daily from Ross Castle. Lough Lain, the Lake of Learning, derives its name from the abbey on Inisfallen that was a famous centre of education in mediaeval times. The island is one of the many sights you will see. The trip is accompanied by commentary on the history and folklore of the lakes.

                  Kenmare Heritage Centre:

                  The Heritage Centre has a Kenmare Lace exhibition, displays and information on famous visitors to Kenmare, the nun of Kenmare, historical sites, the effects of the famine and the landlords of Kenmare.
