Trump International Golf Links & Hotel, Co. Clare
I’ve been visiting this Doonbeg based hotel since before its current owner put his stamp on it. But despite its namesake, it remains a beautifully executed purpose built hotel with a wonderful attention to detail that excites me whenever I visit. Facing the Atlantic Ocean and overlooking a beach, the plentiful windows allow for this breath-taking vista to surprise you on every turn. The design ethic is natural, featuring plenty of linen, wicker, crafted wood and ambient lighting
But what makes this place extra special is it is where Cathal chose to propose. The staff could not do enough: champagne, rose petals, a charming suite – we we’re spoilt. And on that night the weather was wild and stormy, the open fire was blazing and, of course, I said yes.
