About St Margaret’s Golf Club
St Margaret’s has been designed as a Championship Golf course and has already hosted 3 international tournaments.
It boasts big dramatic holes like the roller coaster 12th which rolls between two lakes and across a babbling brook to a majestically elevated green and seven of the par 4 holes are over 400yds long.
As well as the awesome struggles there are broad forgiving fairways, neat par threes and greens that play very true on this fascinating course. As you cross a stream on stepping stones, or step back to admire your second landing inches from the pin, you’ll find more to admire every day in St. Margaret’s. Ryder Cup star Sam Torrance praised the 18th as ” the best finishing hole I have ever seen.. and probably the strongest and most exciting in the world.”
The proverbial 19th hole at St. Margaret’s is more than a resting place for well worn putters and improbable stories of chipping in from rough. As well as the welcoming bar and restaurant there are unrivalled views across the entire course. Our unique computerised reservations system and friendly professional staff ensure that everything goes with a swing and, in the Golf Academy you can ensure that your swing goes even better.

Turn right and the entrance is about 30 yards on your left hand side.
The best time to vacation in Dublin in order to make the most of your visit has been decided
While we’d argue that all year round is the best time to visit Ireland, depending on what you’re looking for from your vacation, there could be better times than others to travel.
According to Frommer’s, Spring and Fall (Autumn) are the best times to visit Ireland but each of the seasons has its own charm, whether you’re looking to get the best of the weather or whether you want to make the most of a great round of golf.
