Situated in one of the most idyllic and unique settings amidst the Hill of Howth, Howth Golf Club offers spectacular views over Dublin Bay, South towards Wicklow and North over the islands of Ireland’s Eye and Lambay as far as the Cooley and Mourne Mountains. The golf course is just 40 minutes away from Dublin city centre by car. Founded in 1916 the heath land links style course was designed by the renowned golfer and course architect James Braid, a 5 times winner of “The Open” Golf Championship who can count the design of the prestigious Kings and Queens Courses at Gleneagles amongst his greatest achievements. James was well known for including dog leg design golf holes in his course designs and the 5th hole in particular is an excellent example of how he blended a great golf hole into the unique Howth Heathers. The exceptional views from the 16th tee are worthy of mention in any golf guide.

A really hilly golf course. It’s an up and down constantly and for the fist time a bit confusing with the layout. Yet I cannot imagine a gold course with a better view. Absolutely astonishing view of Dublin and the sea of Ireland.

Never thought to find such a hilly golf course outside Austria or Switzerland. Tremendous course and I am sure if we would have less fog the surroundings with a 360’ view are absolutely amazing. Definitely have to come back once more as the course has received a very different design from James Braid in 1915 in comparison to other courses I know. Worth a visit 👍🏻
