Killarney Webcam, Live Irish Open Golf View

Europe, Ireland, Killarney

Location Information:


Killarney is a town in County Kerry, southwestern Ireland. The town is located north of the MacGillicuddy Reeks, on the northeastern shore of the Lough Lein/Leane which are part of Killarney National Park. The town and its surrounding region are home to St. Mary's Cathedral, Ross Castle, Muckross Abbey, Lakes of Killarney, Torc Waterfall and Gap of Dunloe.

Killarney was awarded the "Best Kept Town" award for 2007 in a cross-border competition jointly organised by the Department of the Environment and the Northern Ireland Amenity Council. Owing to its natural heritage, history and proximity to the Dingle Peninsula, Skellig Michael island and its location on the Ring of Kerry, Killarney is a popular tourist destination.

The Irish Open is a European Tour golf tournament which is currently played in May each year. It was first played in 1927 and continued until 1950, when the tournament experienced financial problems. Except for a single event, held in 1953, there was a 25 year hiatus until the Irish Open returned in 1975.

Adare Golf Club, part of the Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort in County Limerick had planned to host the tournament for 3 years from 2007 to 2009, however in January 2009 it was announced that they could no longer sustain the losses incurred by hosting the event for a third year. In early March, the European Tour confirmed the national championship would return to County Louth Golf Club, Baltray, venue in 2004, with a new sponsor, 3 Mobile.

The Irish Open used to be played the week before the European Tour's "home tournament" the BMW PGA Championship. In October 2009 the tournament's date was changed to July 29-August 1, 2010. The event's 2005 rating in the Official World Golf Rankings system was high enough for the winner to qualify for the WGC-NEC Invitational. As of 2008, it is the only European Tour event played in Ireland, with the European Open, formerly held at the K Club, having been moved to a new home in London.
