What We Love

  • Full Irish breakfast is included in the Jetsetter rate
  • The setting; nothing says Ireland as much as this misty, melancholy spot amid rolling dunes
  • Spacious rooms make the resort as ideal for families as honeymooners
  • Bucket list golf course designed by Greg Norman (one of the top three in Ireland)
  • The sublime spa uses Irish brands, such as Voya, made from local seaweed

What To Know

  • A $6 resort fee per room, per night, will be collected at the Jetsetter checkout
  • An hour from Shannon Airport, the resort is between Galway and Killarney
  • A rental car is mandatory, as the area is quite secluded
  • Choose your suite carefully; some are a 7-minute walk from the main house
  • The beach is ideal for joggers and walkers, and the concierge can arrange off-site activities such as horseback riding

Overview

Stately seaside manor in County Clare with a Greg Norman–designed golf course, a sublime spa and modern Irish fare

The Look

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.

Beyond

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.

Three golf couples on the last leg of our 14 day golf trip to Ireland. Stayed in a three bedroom cottage in this beautifully designed resort for 3 nights.

Clean, comfortable, large, quiet, well appointed and furnished with everything needed to allow us to enjoy our short stay. The bedroom and separate bathroom were beautiful and the bed was great to sleep in.

All the staff from reception to wait to golf attendant were pleasant helpful and professional. The Irish breakfast was fabulous and never ending!!!

Top notch golf resort we'd love to come back to some day!

Perfection!

We had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights after a week toured Ireland . This resort was impressive. Far enough to away to just relax. We stayed at the one of the cottages and it was wonderful. The beds were comfortable and shower was amazing! The food was outstanding more impressive was the service! Everyone had warm greeting and a smile. Special thanks to Gráinne, who was an absolute doll. My fiancé golfed for 2 days and loved and cursed the course. LOL. Overlooking the beach just stunning. The spa was wonderful thank you Sinead and Rose. Special thank you to the concierge team, especially Victoria. Helped arrange our epic engagement! The falconry team Molly, Darren and of course “Miss Ruby” were just amazing we will never forget the experience. We were so impressed and enjoyed our time that we can’t wait to go back.
