Portmarnock Golf Links unveils new-look coursePortmarnock Golf Links, originally designed in 1995 by the great Bernhard Langer, has completed a multi-million Euro course renovation project which included the ambitious elevation of greens and tees from the eighth hole all the way through its climactic coastal finishing stretch.

The enhancements – led by Jeff Lynch of the innovative and burgeoning golf course design company (re)GOLF – have created a breath-taking back nine (or back ten!) stretch which now takes in picture-postcard views of Portmarnock’s Velvet Strand beach, the expanse of the Irish Sea and the famous uninhabited island which greets visitors as they land into the nearby Dublin airport – known as Ireland’s Eye.

The venue, whose history is inextricably linked to the famous Jameson whiskey dynasty – indeed, many generations of the Jameson family are laid to rest in a graveyard just to the right of the first fairway – is set to wow Irish golfers and international tourists alike as it enters a new chapter in its distinguished history.

Those visiting will also experience a recently-upgraded and award-winning Hotel which blends modern elegance with a fascinating history, encapsulated by the quaint Irish charm of its Jameson Bar – which in 2022 was commended in the Icons of Whisky Ireland Hotel Bar of the Year Awards.

The Hotel provides a perfect base for any golfers hoping to explore the vast array of world-class links courses along the north Dublin golfing coast – including Portmarnock Old Course, The Island and Royal Dublin.
