A very warm welcome to one of Ireland's finest golf links. We have history and wonderful golfing tradition here - but better than that, we have a fabulous golfing challenge over a magnificent links course. And when the golf is done, our clubhouse offers the ideal place for enjoyable relaxation. Our visitors are always welcomed by our friendly staff and we look forward to your visit to our Club. Located on Bull Island, which also houses a bird sanctuary and nature reserves, this golf course is one of the oldest in Ireland, dating back to 1885.

A beautiful links course. Very well-maintained. Staff was very accommodating and in the pro shop and in the bar. Nice selection of clothing. We rented clubs and a golf buggy. It was a fantastic course and a great experience.
