Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Doonbeg
Formerly the Lodge at Doonbeg
This grand manor, built in 2006 and hidden along the Emerald Isle’s remote and rugged Atlantic shores, is tickled with Irish charms: a peat-log fireplace illuminates the wood-beamed lobby; goose-feather duvets keep guest beds toasty-warm; teapots fitted with cozies pour out piping cups of Irish Breakfast each morning. What’s more, the cheerful staff is only too happy to arrange outings to County Clare’s trove of storied sights, including the Cliffs of Moher, or to book you tee time on the lodge’s Top 100 golf course. Fancy something more restful? Go for a seaweed scrub at the Clodagh-designed White Horse Spa. Just be sure to be out in time to catch the burnished sunsets, some of the island’s most spectacular.
