The Royal Dublin Golf Club

The Royal Dublin Golf Club is located in a large sand bar known as Bull Island, 20 minutes from the Alex hotel. It is Ireland’s second oldest golf club, in fact, the design of the course dates back from after the First World War, integrating the beautiful sand dunes. The golf club was designed by a world-famous golf architect, Harry Colt and is often referred to have a top-quality layout with strategically placed bunkering, water ditches and roller-coaster fairways. It is a pretty impressive and prestigious golf course, so why not spend the day on their world-class 18-hole golf course to see what the hype is about? It would be a pretty nifty experience.
