On the stunning, windswept coast of County Clare, this stately seaside retreat is set on 400 acres and offers city slickers and spa seekers a luxe dose of R&R. Built in 2006 by the developers behind South Carolina’s Kiawah Island, it has the air of an aristocratic manor, but with killer amenities including a Greg Norman–designed golf course (ranked one of the top 100 in the world), a farm-to-table restaurant and a sublime spa. Rebranded by Trump International in February 2014, the resort nevertheless has retained a strong sense of place.
Bed & Bath
The 169 guestrooms, suites and cottages blend traditional touches and contemporary style with high ceilings, reclaimed wood beams, polished stone floors and six-foot-by-six-foot “Princess and the Pea” beds topped with goosedown quilts. The huge bathrooms are lined with marble and come with walk-in rainfall showers. Classic Links Rooms face the golf course or pastureland, as do the Links Cottages — huge self-contained accommodations with up to four bedrooms, cozy fireplaces and full kitchens. Both are located a 7-minute walk from the resort center. The Courtyard suites are a 3-minute stroll from the restaurants and spa.
Tee off on the challenging par-72 Greg Norman–designed golf course, which spans ancient sand dunes along Doughmore Bay. The stunning sea views make the effort more than worthwhile for most golfers, even duffers who call the par-3 14th hole “murderous.” Beyond the fairway, the White Horses Spa is an earth-tone sanctuary that offers facials and body treatments that utilize indigenous Irish brands, such as sustainable, all natural Voya. County Clare has strong farm-to-fork traditions, and chef Budzyn keeps it alive at the resort’s fine dining enclave, the Ocean View Restaurant. Pub-style noshing is available at Trump’s Bar and Restaurant, which flanks the golf course and overlooks the 1st hole.
In the Area
On the southwestern coast of Ireland, County Clare exudes natural beauty. Explore the stunning Cliffs of Moher, which look out at the Aran Islands, and visit Burren National Park, a rocky expanse composed of fossils, fissures, sinkholes and other karstlike attributes. Cruise out to the Aran Islands and search for dolphins and seals along the way. Or, if you dare, surf the chilly waters along the Lahinch promenade.

We cannot wait to return!
A fantastic location with excellent service from attentive staff and fist class facilities. The suite was well furnished with all facilities you could ask for. The bed was very comfortable and the linen first class
An excellent location with great facilitates and amenities. But most of all the best service I have ever experienced and great value for money. We enjoyed the location, horse riding, surfing and golf. The local village was welcoming and the surrounding areas of Kilkee, Kilrush and the loophead peninsula were wonderful. I would definitely return to Trump Doonbeg.
I am very glad in recommending this hotel . Excellent service . Amazing place . Wonderful landscape, not far from the Cliffs of Moher . Wide rooms and a good shower . Nice beds and pillows . Stuff extremely gentle and friendly.
Absolutely beautiful hotel, amazing staff and fabulous rooms. Couldn’t fault it, simply perfect. Lots to do. Food was gorgeous and reasonably priced in the bar. It’s missing a swimming pool and a larger spa area. But overall it was the prefect stay
