Trump International Golf Links & Hotel™ Ireland, formerly Doonbeg Golf Club, is a traditional links type course situated to the north of Doonbeg in County Clare, Ireland. Designed by Greg Norman and opened in 2002, the geography was hardly changed as the course was fitted into the area provided.[1] The complex hosts a 5 star hotel, spa, cottages and reception rooms.

In February 2014, the lodge and golf club was bought by Donald Trump for an estimated €15m.[2] The Lodge at Doonbeg, which consists of 218 hotel suites, an expansive spa and several restaurants will be managed by the Trump Hotel Collection.[3]

The club has applied for permits to construct a sea wall to protect the property, citing "global warming and its effects".[4]
