The venue for next year's Murphy's Irish Open is Ballybunion, in County Kerry. The Open was held in Druids Glen over the last number of years but the organisers decided to switch the venue to Ballybunion for next year despite some objections from the clubs members.

“A different challenge will await the Golfers on this links course” that’s according to the Managing Director of Murphy Brewery Ireland Padraic Liston.
