Links Golf Experience

Created on land that was once home to the Jameson distilling family’s 9-hole golf course, the Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links has been receiving accolades from top golfers and golf journalists alike since it opened in 1995.
The course, designed by two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer, sits on the shoreline of a rugged coastline and makes full use of the dunes and natural terrain to provide a layout that will please the most ardent of links purists.
The elevated tees and greens, blind approaches and doglegs - not to mention typical links sea breezes - will keep you thinking through every round. Gently undulating luxuriously sprung fairways leading to large fast greens must be negotiated through 98 strategically placed bunkers, whilst hillocks, wild grasses and gorse await wayward shots.
More than a round of golf, playing at Portmarnock is about experiencing the outstanding beauty of Ireland’s spectacular links courses. And then real local hospitality in the clubhouse.

Just nine miles to the north of Dublin, the charming coastal village of Malahide retains a truly traditional Irish feel. Its castle, built on a small rise that commands an impressive view of Dublin Bay, is one of Ireland’s oldest. It dates back to 1185 when Henry II presented Richard Talbot with the lands and harbour of Malahide for his loyal services as a knight.
Malahide Castle remained in the Talbot family for nearly eight centuries, until it was sold to the Irish state in 1975. Its reception rooms, decked with beautiful period furniture, are home to a unique collection of paintings from the National Gallery of Ireland. On the grounds, over 260 acres of magnificent gardens planted with an abundance of flora and trees as old as 400 years await exploration.
Farther along the coast, the small fishing village of Howth juts out into the Irish sea. Walk along its sandy beach, taking in spectacular views of the Howth Head peninsula, and stroll along the pier to sample some of Ireland’s tasty seafood, topped by classic Irish coffee in one of Howth's most iconic pubs.
