The Island Golf Club

The Island is one of the genuine true links courses. A pleasure to play, with a great variety of shots

Christy O’Connor Sr


Though one of the first dozen golf clubs in Ireland, and the third oldest in Greater Dublin, The Island remains one of the country’s best-kept links secrets.

A journalist once famously scribed, “The Island is the best course in Ireland you have never heard of. Play it and tell no one.
