The Island Golf Club in Dublin is one of Ireland’s Premier Links Golf Courses.
It is situated just off the main M1 (N1) Dublin to Belfast route, near the village of Donabate.

This links course is located across the estuary from the pretty village of Malahide, just north of Portmarnock.

It is bordered by the sea on three sides.

The Martin Hawtree designed links course requires excellent shot making skills and offers countless superb holes.

Despite its nearness to Dublin, the enormous dunes that are scattered throughout the Island Golf Course give it a secluded feel.

Facilities

The Island Golf Club provides state of the art practice facilities for golfers to warm up on before taking on the links course:

  • Putting green
  • Chipping green complete with practice bunkers
  • Short game practice area
  • Long game practice area

Caddies and equipment can be hired in advance or at the golf club.

Food & Drink

Golfers can choose from a wide selection of menus with a wide range of locally sourced ingredients. Regular favourites from the menu include Full Irish Breakfast, The Island Club Sandwich, Dublin Bay Scampi and 10oz Fillet Steak.

Tournaments

The Irish Amateur Open, 2023

Things to do
