Donald Trump due in Doonbeg on May 12


DONALD J Trump will make his first visit to the Doonbeg Trump International Golf Links and Hotel Ireland on Monday May 12. The billionaire businessman will touch down at Shannon Airport at approximately 7.30am that morning. The Trumps purchased the Doonbeg club for an estimated fee of €15m after it had gone into receivership in early 2014.

Speaking to The Clare Champion in late February Donald Trump Senior said that his company intend to invest several million euro/dollars in the venture.

“I’d say many, many millions of dollars. One of the things we’ll be doing, in conjunction with the council and with the town, is a ballroom. Ballrooms provide a lot of jobs. We’ll also be talking about a beautiful enhancement to the spa including an indoor swimming pool. We’ll be talking about many things like that. So we’re going to spend many millions of dollars before we have it at the level we want it at,” he Mr Trump said.

“We’re going to be very focused on the hotel and we’ll have the golf course in the finest condition of any golf course in Ireland,” he added.
