Activities and Attractions


The Sancta Maria Hotel is the closest hotel to the championship links course at Lahinch Golf Club. Why spend half of your day driving when you can literally be staying across the road?

Tee times can be arranged for the links, the Castle Course or the Doonbeg Golf Club, designed by Greg Norman. There are 9 golf courses within an hour's drive of the Sancta Maria.


The hotel is within a 9 iron of the first tee of the Lahinch Golf Club.  We are the white building on the right.
