History of Ceann Sibeal/Dingle

Ceann Sibeal was founded in 1924, and was located at Ballintaggart near Dingle and was known as Dingle Golf Links. The club then moved to Doonshean, in Dingle itself. They made their final move to Ceann Sibeal in 1972 and have never looked back. The club has since developed one of the finest links courses to be found anywhere in Ireland and built a magnificent clubhouse.
