Nestled amid Cork's woodlands, Castlemartyr (Baile na Martra) is a destination richly steeped in Emerald Isle history and tradition.
Not only is there an award-winning spa on site, but there are also numerous other activities to keep you entertained throughout your stay, among them horse riding, carriage rides, archery and laser clay pigeon shooting.
The real showstopper of the resort is the Castlemartyr golf course; set in an old manor estate in East Cork, it is an 18-hole inland links-style course. It is the creation of renowned golf course designer Ron Kirby, whose credentials were honed on such Irish masterpieces as Old Head and Mount Juliet, as well as Gleneagles in Scotland. Castlemartyr Golf Club provides first-class service across all aspects of the golf spectrum, from the course to the clubhouse and pro shop. Golfers will certainly enjoy the setting of this golf hotel.
