I played Ballybunion and Lahinch a month ago.    Playing Ballybunion with a Senior Caddy was the most enjoyable experience I have ever had on a golf course. Pure bliss. My caddie was very professional and helpful. The condition of the Old Course at Ballybunion was also top notch. I didn't get a bad roll on the greens all day. I am planning to go back to Ireland next summer and to play all of the courses you listed. Ireland is a golfer's paradise for sure. Lahinch was...
I played Ballybunion and Lahinch a month ago.   Here's a few photos of Ballybunion.                            I didn't get too many pictures of Lahinch. Here is one.   
I'd go for a hybrid.   Honestly, I have played with the idea of getting rid of my 60 degree and putting a 3 hyrid in my bag. I'm better with a 54 around the green unless I really have to hit a high and short shot which rarely comes up during a round.
 Great point there. 
Sounds like they were hitting punch shots to keep them under the wind.    Taking a longer/less lofted club and swinging easier is the preferred way to hit the ball lower and keep it under the wind.    It's not really a "stock" shot, it's something they use for when the situation calls for it.    Practicing it could be useful though, just depends on the person, honestly. 
You need to get your path closer to square(less out-in). 
 I'm just going by what the OP said but........ 
So it's 154 yards from the red tee to the water, am I reading that right? Looks like a 170-180 yard tee shot aimed up the middle leaves you in the fairway or just through it(in left rough) and then you have another 170 yard shot to the green.    If you're not comfortable carrying the water, that's the way to play it IMO. You gotta play with what you have, not what you wish you had.   There's a 290 yard Par 4 at my home course where I routinely hit a 5 iron(180 yard...
This is why we never should have invaded in the first place.    The USA(or any other country) won't sacrifice the blood and treasure to stay there for 30 years until Iraq became stable.   The entire thing was a pie in the sky dream and it's a shame we lost thousands of lives and a Trillion dollars on it.    As was mentioned there is now a power vacuum and a monster worse than Saddam may have been created. 
 Yeah, gotta love the people who keep their head down so much that they're still looking at where the ball was when they are at the finish of their swing. The finish which is very short because they can't rotate their body at all because they're trying to "keep their head down".
