Dublin is a truly beautiful city, with a spectacular and sometimes confusing blend of heritage and hedonism. While the golf in Ireland is wonderful, a golf break to Dublin will only be complete once you’ve sat down for a pint of the black stuff and an evening of loose decadence in a pub built in 1198. Through in the locals’ propensity for great stories and charismatic sociability, and you’ve got all the ingredients for your best golf break yet.
Our Golf Travel Experts recommend Portmarnock Golf Links as an unmissable experience in Dublin. A truly traditional links golf club just 15 minutes from the dublin airport, Portmarnock golf course has been around since 1893. Over the years it has developed a rich history, including being the venue of the very first Irish Open in 1927. Since updated a number of times ( most notably the 15th hole is a famous par three which you just have to try), a stay at Portmarnock hotel and a trip around the course is now a favourite of ours whenever we are in that part of the world.

In a city with over 1000 pubs, it won’t be hard to find a place for a nice drink after your game: however, for something amazing head to Dublin during the St Patrick’s Day Parade. If you can cope with the crowds, the parade is the epicentre of fun in dublin, with street performers and fireworks everywhere. In the surrounding week you’ll find a 5 day festival of entertainment so exciting it might be hard to get any golf in at all between the fun!

If you are up to the challenge, tee off in winter and really test yourself against the elements
