Captains Welcome


Niall Cannon

It is an honour for me to be a Captain of Dromoland Golf and Country Club. Dromoland Castle and estate date back through the centuries as the ancestral home of the O’Brien clan. It is now 51 years in existence as a hotel and golf course. Over those years, the golf course has undergone many phases of development. The course that exists today is a very highly regarded parkland course. As members we are very proud of our golf course and consider it to be a challenging and rewarding experience to play here.

Apart from the golf, I take great pleasure from the beautiful environmental setting of the course. While golfing one can admire the wonderful natural variety of trees and plants as well as observe several species of animal and bird life that are native to Dromoland Estate. The lake, the river and the water features are a feast for the senses.

There is a series of interesting and special holes on the course. The setting of the 7th provides a spectacular view of the castle and the lake; while the par 5 18th is a tremendous finishing hole with a 200 year-old evergreen tree guarding the entrance to the green. That is just to mention two holes.

If you would like to come and join as a full member, or as a guest, I know you would enjoy playing our golf course, and enjoy the friendly Dromoland hospitality.

It is an honour and a privilege for me to be Lady Captain of Dromoland Golf Club for 2017. Dromoland is a magnificent, highly rated, challenging parkland Golf Course.  Located in beautiful County Clare where a warm welcome awaits members and visitors alike. Should you have an opportunity to visit and play Dromoland you will not be disappointed

As someone who was introduced to golf as a complete beginner, I have a special interest in encouraging and supporting new golfers.   We have a fun and vibrant ladies membership here at Dromoland where Kitty Quinn (Vice Captain) and I will continue to build and strengthen our active Ladies Section and provide a warm atmosphere for all our members and guests.

I wish you every best wish for the year ahead and look forward to seeing you on the golf course.
