Portmarnock Hotel & 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.

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!

The first golf course developed by IMG in Ireland opened for play in 1995 with Stan Eby guiding the affair and Bernhard Langer lending his name to the project. Portmarnock Golf Links will always be compared with its nearby neighbour and the name probably doesn't help... however, its great golf in its own right!
