Druids Glen, founded in 1995, is a parkland course located between Bray and Wicklow town and just 30 minutes south of Dublin.

The County Wicklow golf course, named European Golf Resort of the Year in 2005, was designed by Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock. It underwent extensive upgrades recently, reopening in 2023 as a 7,222-yard par-72 course built to USGA standards.

Druids Glen golf course

Druids Glen is one of two courses on the Druids Golf Resort. The Glen features prominently alongside the likes of the K Club and Mount Juliet in every discussion of great inland golf courses. You can see views of the Atlantic from the first nine, with the back nine looking onto the Wicklow Mountains. A well-wooded parkland course, with liberally distributed water hazards, bunkers and tree-lined holes demanding driving accuracy, the length of the course and many approach shots over water make this a challenging test for golfers.

Druids Heath

The Heath, founded in 2003, is also a parkland course which enables golfers to experience breath-taking views of Irish mountains, sea and countryside throughout their round which is described as “nature’s gift to golf”. The sea breeze calls for shot-making skills and imagination from the golfer. The golf course is carved from the natural landscape of Ireland’s Garden County with rolling fairways, natural rock quarries, lakes, trees, streams, gorse and pot bunkers.

Food & Drink

Woodstock House, the clubhouse at Druid’s Glen dates back to 1770. The bar and restaurant there allows you to relax in comfort and luxury after your round of golf.

One of Ireland’s largest mountain ranges, which stretches across the whole centre of county Wicklow. The Wicklow Mountains national park was opened in 1991 and is one of six national parks in Ireland. The park offers visitors a selection of recreational pursuits such as hill walking, rock climbing, hiking as well as a small amount of fishing.
