It was once said that writing about Killarney is akin to writing about St. Andrews - there is surely nothing new to say. All known superlatives are inadequate to the task of describing Killarney with its mountains, lakes and trees and two magnificent golf courses, each of which has hosted major championships, and where spectacular golf matches have been filmed for television.

The two superb golf courses offer firm fairways and perfect greens in a sylvan setting on the shores of the Lough Leane with the mountain range known as the MacGillycuddy Reeks towering majestically beyond the water.

When the wind blows across the lake, the trees that line the Killarney fairways set up a subtle warning symphony - you will need to be careful today!

Killarney was the first Irish venue to have acted host to the European Amateur Team Championships. That was in 1975 when the Irish post office paid a great tribute to both the lovely venue and the big event by issuing a special series of postage stamps featuring the Killarney courses and lake. This remains one of the very few occasions on which any country used golf as a theme for its postage stamps.

Killarney has also hosted the Irish Open Golf Championship on numerous occasions.
