Clontarf Castle****

A castle in the city. The original 12th Century Clontarf Castle now combines the very best of ancient charm and Irish hospitality. It is perfectly positioned on the North side of Dublin, literally up the street from Royal Dublin and St. Anne's Golf Clubs and only five minutes to the courses at Portmarnock and Malahide.

The castle was re-built in the late 1700's and its massive stone walls now form the central hub with the reception, restaurants and bars.

The bedrooms are in new wings, designed from the ground-up with every modern convenience and have recently have another decorative overhaul which makes them look even better than new.  Four-poster rooms and larger Suites are also available if you would like to spoil yourself (and somebody else?).

The hotel has plenty of options for wining and dining.  The main restaurant on the first floor is semi-formal with an excellent choice of modern Irish cuisine.  More casual dining is possible in the hotel's main bar, between its panelled walls.  For bright young things, the Indigo bar is a real break with tradition with its unexpected neon lighting and purple seating.  And a lively spot too on most evenings as there is often music to entertain.

If, despite all of these entertainments within the hotel walls, you should decide to venture into the city centre for an evening, it is only a ten minute taxi ride away.

Portmarnock Links Hotel****

What more Irish a destination than the original Jameson family home on the North Dublin coast? The fine old house on the Portmarnock strand has been extended very much in keeping with the original buildings and provides clubhouse and hotel to the renowned Bernhard Langer designed course.

Our prices are based on the bedrooms overlooking the course; sea-view rooms and the new Deluxe rooms carry a small supplement.

There is a choice of bars, a sunny lounge for afternoon tea, a brasserie beside the clubhouse, plus restaurant below the airy lobby that looks out across the Irish sea.

Jurys Inn - Christchurch Jury's Inn - Christchurch***

A very practical hotel for golfers in the heart of the city at the top end of Temple Bar, right opposite Christchurch cathedral.

Car parking is a bit of a problem in Dublin, but Jury's adjoins a multi-storey car-park from which there is direct access into the hotel reception - dead easy.

A straightforward hotel that makes an easy to find city base; well equipped bedrooms, restaurant, bar and useful coffee shop.

Arlington Temple Bar***

In the centre of Temple Bar, not far from the Liffey, St. Stephen’s Green, Trinity College and Grafton street, the Arlington is a great spot for combining golf around Dublin's fair city with all the evening entertainmenrts on offer in Temple Bar. Although the hotel does not have its own car park, there is a secure pay car park only a few minutes walk from the hotel.

The entire ground floor of the hotel is taken over by Legends bar, where there is live music and dancing on most evenings.

Other Dublin hotels to consider:

As you can imagine in a city the size of Dublin there are plenty of other accommodation options too.  The Citywest Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa on the western outskirts of Dublin makes a fine base for heading both into and out of town.
