GOLF COURSES

GOLF COURSES

ROYAL DUBLIN GOLF CLUB

Ranked #27 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Ireland

The Dublin Golf Club, as it was originally called, was founded in 1885. The club moved twice before the course finally came to rest on Bull Island in 1889. Two years later, Queen Victoria granted the club royal patronage. The course was severely damaged during the First World War and was rebuilt by Harry Colt in 1920.

This is a classic traditional out and back links, relatively unusual for an Irish links. The course is fairly flat and narrow with long stretches of out of bounds, and the wind tends to swirl around Dublin Bay, generally making the course play tougher than the yardage would indicate. The greens are outstanding and there are some brutally deep greenside bunkers as well.

Martin Hawtree was engaged in course redevelopment work between 2004-2006 and Royal Dublin has improved as a consequence. Today's championship layout stretches to an impressive 7,269 yards from the tips and has hosted numerous Irish Open Championships, with Seve Ballesteros and Bernhard Langer among the winners here at Royal Dublin.

COUNTY LOUTH GOLF CLUB (BALTRAY)

Ranked #11 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Ireland

Founded in 1892, County Louth Golf Club, or Baltray as it is more commonly known, has established itself as one of Ireland’s finest links courses. Winner of the 2017 IAGTO Links course of the year and host of two Irish Opens, the course stands as a par 72 and measures 7,031 yards from the Championship tees.

Baltray is one of Ireland's great secrets, this is a course that has remained relatively anonymous, except to those in the know. County Louth Golf Club was established in 1892 but Tom Simpson and Molly Gourlay designed the present course in 1938. Baltray has no weak holes. The course is laid out in two loops, and most holes run in different directions. However, the greens are County Louth’s hallmark – they are among the very best in the whole of Ireland. If you can avoid three putting for 18 holes, then you have the right to claim you’re a great putter.The back nine is especially entertaining with a number of holes running close to the shore with distant views towards the Mountains of Mourne.

THE ISLAND CLUB

Ranked #8 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Ireland

The Island Club in Ireland was once on an island. It’s now attached to the mainland but it’s still an isolated peninsula-like spur of links land, sandwiched between the Irish Sea, the beach of Donabate and the Broadmeadow estuary.

Few people know about The Island Golf Club, despite the fact that the course is over 100 years old and has featured in numerous ranking tables over the years. One leading golf magazine once commented: “The best course in Ireland you have never heard of. Play it and tell no-one.”

This is a no-frills golf course. There is nothing artificial, it’s simply harmonious and in tune with its surroundings. Some of the most shaggy, rugged and looming sand dunes imaginable provide natural and distinct amphitheaters for many of the holes. In the summer, if you are unfortunate and wayward enough to find the dunes, be careful to avoid trampling on the wild dune flowers.

THE EUROPEAN GOLF CLUB

Ranked #4 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Ireland

The European Club is located between the coastal towns of Wicklow and Arklow, about 30 miles south of Dublin. This is a unique experience, a 20-hole links set amongst rugged dunes. It opened for play in 1993 with only one thing missing – history. It has enjoyed a reputation as one of the finest Irish links courses since its’ opening day.

This is an inspiring place for golf, huge dunes provide tremendous definition and the Irish Sea is very much a backdrop during your round. It’s a bit of a monster too; the 18-hole layout stretches to more than 7,000 yards, a challenging par 71. Two par 3s make up the par 77 20-hole layout and they are definitely worth playing, making a refreshing break from tradition. This is an absolute must-play golf course and quite likely one of the last links courses to be built in Ireland.

The European Club has hosted a number of prestigious events, including multiple Irish PGA Championships and Irish Amateur Championships.

PORTMARNOCK GOLF LINKS

Portmarnock is the ancestral family estate of the famous Jameson whiskey family. The Jameson’s once had a nine-hole golf course here and the land is now incorporated into the Portmarnock Golf Club and the Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links.

Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Club was designed by Bernhard Langer and opened for play in 1996. The course borders its illustrious neighbor, Portmarnock Golf Club, but the two courses are separately owned and managed. For such a young layout, the Hotel Links is a very natural and understated course. There is nothing showy about the design; the natural links land is used simply and effectively. The first eight holes play across gently-undulating ground with definition provided by varied grasses and pot bunkers. Then, around the turn, a cluster of shaggy sand dunes provides a much more dramatic playing field.

Bernhard Langer commented on his creation: “There are very few locations in Europe which could have allowed me the opportunity and landscape to design such a classic championship links. I hope all those who play it discover its magic and its challenging beauty.” We thoroughly agree and encourage you to add this links course to your itinerary.

THE K CLUB

The K Club drew international acclaim in 2006 when it became the first and, to this date, only Irish venue to host the Ryder Cup.

Already a well-known golfing destination, having hosted 13 European Opens from 1991 to 2007, the eyes of the world were drawn to this magnificent resort to see the who’s who of the global golfing world take their place, centre stage on the Arnold Palmer-designed Ryder Cup Course.

In 2016, The K Club once again opens its doors to some of golf’s biggest players, 10 years after the 36th Ryder Cup, by becoming the official host venue to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, hosted by The Rory Foundation.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

ST. PATRICKS CATHEDRAL

Ireland's largest church and the final resting place of Jonathan Swift, St Patrick's stands on the spot where St Patrick himself reputedly baptised the local Celtic chieftains in the 5th century. Fiction or not, it's a sacred bit of turf upon which this cathedral was built between 1191 and 1270.

As the largest cathedral and one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Ireland, Saint Patrick’s has been at the heart of Dublin and Ireland’s history and culture for over 800 years.

Built in honour of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patricks Cathedral stands adjacent to the famous well where tradition has it Saint Patrick baptized converts on his visit to Dublin. The Cathedral is today the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland and is the largest church in Ireland. The adjacent park is a nice respite in the city if you fancy a coffee or picnic break.

TEMPLE BAR

One of the most famous pubs in Dublin is the Temple Bar, first opened in 1840. Part of its fame is because it offers over 450 different kinds of rare whiskies (Ireland's largest collection).

You can’t miss this red building, it looks typically Irish and it is always buzzing. The inside is pretty quirky, with a lot of hanging lamps, the huge whiskey collection and a weird bronze statue of James Joyce. And the crazy atmosphere here makes you want to come in. The only problem comes from its fame, the place is always full and it’s usually a challenge to find a place to sit.

 

GRAFTON STREET, DUBLIN

A bit like Dublin city itself, Grafton Street presents something of an enigma to visitors. In other major capitals, people gather along grand boulevards to shop, lunch, drink and eat. In Dublin, locals head to Grafton Street, a narrow winding road that’s been at the heart of the city’s social life for more than a century.

Grafton Street is home to all varieties of shops, both locally owned and national brands. It's also home to countless restaurants, cafes and pubs. And, most famously, Grafton Street is home to the many buskers that entertain visitors with a variety of music, magic and street performances.

Entering from Stephen’s Green in the south, Grafton Street meanders by a series of street-level shops, twisting and turning, before sloping down to the broad sweep of College Green and the grand entrance to Trinity College.

On a busy Saturday afternoon it can be hard work negotiating a path from one end of the street to the other, so dense are the crowds strolling about or gathered around the multiple street entertainers.

 

KILMAINHAM GAOL PRISON

Dublin's Kilmainham Gaol (prison) held some of the most famous political and military leaders in Irish history such as Robert Emmet, Charles Stewart Parnell, the 1916 Rising leaders and Eamon de Valera.

If for no other reason, Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin would be remarkable for being the biggest unoccupied gaol in these islands. As such, it gives the visitor a dramatic and realistic insight into what is was like to have been confined in one of these forbidding bastions of punishment and correction between 1796 when it opened and 1924 when it closed.

It offers a panoramic insight into some of the most profound, disturbing and inspirational themes of modern Irish history. Leaders of the rebellions of 1798, 1803, 1848, 1867 and 1916 were detained and sometimes executed here. The Gaol also played a role during the harsh Famine times.

THE GUINNESS STOREHOUSE FACTORY

Located in the heart of St. James’ Gate Brewery, the Guinness Storehouse is one of the most popular tourist attractions in all of Ireland. In fact, the interior is designed to look exactly like a pint of Guinness itself and is known to be the largest pint in the world.

A ticket to the Guinness factory (roughly €18) will take you on a tour through seven floors of Irish brewing history, where you will learn all about the Guinness family, as well as how the beloved stout beer is meticulously crafted to perfection. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at the Gravity Bar on the 7th floor, where you can enjoy a refreshing pint of Guinness with a 360 degree view of the Dublin skyline.

DUBLIN CASTLE

Erected in the early thirteenth century on the site of a Viking settlement, Dublin Castle served for centuries as the headquarters of English, and later British, administration in Ireland. In 1922, following Ireland’s independence, Dublin Castle was handed over to the new Irish government.

With over 800 years of Irish memories encapsulated within its walls, this incredible structure has borne witness to some of the most pivotal events in all of the country’s history.

Spanning an area of over 11 acres, the Castle stands proudly on the highest ridge in the locality and offers self-guided and guided tours of the grounds, including the Castle’s many rooms, gardens and museums such as the Chapel Royal, the Chester Beatty Library, the Garda Museum and the Revenue Museum.

THE OLD JAMESON DISTILLERY

Another historical gem is the Old Jameson Distillery, located just off Smithfield Square. This location previously used to be the original site where Jameson whiskey was manufactured and distilled until it stopped production in the early 1970s.

Learn the story of John Jameson and his adventures in whiskey making on a guided tour of the Jameson Distillery. Since his brave first steps into the brewery building in 1780, the Jameson brand has been focused on its founder's ambition to create unforgettable experiences.

A tour of the old distillery will take you through the history and process of creating the refined whiskey, along with the unique opportunity to take part in a comparative whiskey-tasting experience. At the end of the tour, you will be given an exclusive Whiskey Taster Certificate to officially certify your knowledge in traditional Irish whiskey.
