    The Island Golf Club is located in an isolated area near Dublin, sandwiched in between the Irish Sea and the Broadmeadow Estuary, a truly iconic location. The club was founded by twelve Irishmen, most of whom were already members of Royal Dublin Golf Club. Established in 1890, the course is considered to be one of the first twelve courses to be founded in Ireland. But despite its age and status within the golfing community, The Island is actually not very well known. Top 100 Golf Courses has ranked this hidden gem as the second best course in Dublin and the tenth best in Ireland, making it a must play course. Nestled between some of the highest sand dunes encountered in golf and surrounded by water, each golf shot requires accuracy and discipline.


    There are some fantastic holes to choose from, but the signature 13th is the one to watch out for. Measuring in at over 220 yards, this par 3 has a daunting tee shot with the beach to the right and rough to the left. If you aim at the pin and hit the ball cleanly then your bravery may be rewarded.


    The Island course is certainly one to tick off the bucket list!

    If the golf course is too busy then there is a chance that you could get paired up with another group; however the club will try to avoid this whenever possible. Due to the high status and popularity of the course, we suggest that you book your tee time prior to travelling.
