Golf Course Review

Portmarnock Resort & Jameson Golf Links lies on the same peninsula as Portmarnock Golf Club. Directly bordering the course to the north, the city of Dublin lies directly opposite to the West and the Irish Sea, Ireland’s Eye, and the Hill of Howth to the East. 5 miles of beach, called the Velvet Strand, runs alongside the links eastern boundary.

Portmarnock Resort & Jameson Golf Links History

The estate originally belonged to the Jameson family who played over a private golf course located here since the mid 19th century. The current links incorporated some of the original course into its layout!
