1.  A PROJECT BORN FROM A COMMUNITY

In the late 1980’s, during a time when most towns in Ireland were looking for factories to secure the future of its youth, Doonbeg saw the potential and opportunity in a Links Golf Course & Hotel. Folklore has it that the world-famous Lahinch Course, some 40 minutes up the road, was originally earmarked for Doonbeg due to the suitability of its seaside land, however, Lahinch was chosen at the time (circa 1890’s) as it was serviced by the now defunct West Clare Railway. The Doonbeg village council never gave up and pushed through the plans to develop the lands and in 2002 Doonbeg Championship Golf Course opened to great fanfare, immediately being recognised among the great links courses of Ireland and in 2006 the wonderful 5 Star Hotel opened its doors.

From this point the relationship between the people and the Resort grew even stronger.  Over 250 people now work there from a village with a population of 784 and it’s the people that make Doonbeg the perfect resort for guests from all over the World.  Customer feedback rarely fails to mention a member of the team at Doonbeg and the pride in place – it’s what they term as the “Huggability” factor.
