There’s still no official confirmation on whether the US President will visit West Clare as part of his trip to Europe next month.

Donald Trump is visiting France in the first week of June and it’s expected he’ll make a brief stopover at his Doonbeg hotel while he’s on this side of the Atlantic.


There’s mounting speculation that Donald Trump will visit his Doonbeg Hotel and Golf Resort in a matter of weeks, following reports that planning is underway for a brief stopover in June.

The US President is travelling to France for the 75th anniversary of D-Day on June 6th, and it’s believed he could touch down at Shannon Airport that day or the following day.

His brief stopover is expected to involve a stay at his Doonbeg Hotel and Golf resort, where he’ll take in a round of golf.

But Hotel Management say there’s still no official confirmation on a June visit.

The Head of the Clare Garda division has said he’d welcome a visit by President Trump, and chief Superintendent Michael Gubbins has told Clare FM that the force will be ready, if and when that occurs.

The President had previously committed to visiting Doonbeg in November but that trip was cancelled, and since then he’s said that he will come to Ireland at some point this year.

Tommy Commerford from the Doonbeg Development Association says if he does come, he’ll be welcomed with open arms.
