Best Golf Courses in Ireland

With over 450 golf clubs and 30% of the world’s links golf courses Ireland is a legendary golfing destination. From some of the top championship courses to inland jewels around every corner.

Dublin is a great place to play golf – whether its a short golf break or the start of a longer golf holiday in Ireland – Dublin has over 60 of the finest Irish Golf Courses. They cater for all levels of golf.

Across the centre, you can also play 2 majestic parkland courses – Castle Country Club and St Anne’s Golf Club. A personal favourite would be Castleknock. But let’s not forget The Island Golf Club a classic links course set in naturally rugged terrain.

One of my favourite golf courses in the region is Arklow Links Golf Course with its great location and welcoming clubhouse. It’s comparable to North Berwick Scotland but a third of the price at 50 Euros. It’s a traditional links course at its best. You can also visit Druids Glen IAGTO’s 2005 Golf Resort of the Year or try the K Club designed by Arnold Palmer which hosted the Ryder Cup in 2006.


Ireland enjoys a temperate climate making golf an ideal past-time for thousands of golfers. Just make sure you pack some waterproofs and be prepared to juggle your layers throughout the day
