Nightlife infoDublin’s pubs are world famous and you should make sure to sample at least a couple during your stay. Below are some suggestions to start you off. A few things to note: in general you order at the bar and pay immediately, though if you are ordering food sometimes you just pay for everything at the end as in a restaurant. If you are served to your table it is common to leave some of your change as a tip but you never tip someone for just serving you over the bar counter.
Dublin City Centre is just 25 minutes away from Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links at it's ideal location on the Velvet Strand, which is one of Dublin's only beach hotels.
Jameson Distillery (Whiskey Tours for groups available, 'Shindig Nights' during summer months & Whiskey Tastings with Dinner at the distillery which can be also arranged here at the hotel in our historic Jameson House)
Guinness Storehouse wants you to come and explore Ireland's number one visitor attraction, providing an unforgettable welcome and a magical journey deep into the heart of the world famous GUINNESS® brand and company.
Situated on the shoreline of a rugged peninsula, The Links Portmarnock was the first golf course that International Management Group (IMG) developed in Ireland and opened for play in 1995.
It was therefore fitting that Bernhard Langer chose this magnificent setting to design his first links course being a three time winner of the Irish Open at nearby Portmarnock Golf Club and The Royal Dublin Golf Club. Along with architect Stan Eby they designed a course that is a challenge for all golfers, set in the grounds of the old Jameson Estate of St. Marnocks, the course has played host to professional and amateur events including 2008 and 2009 Ladies Irish Open
The recent investment programme by new owners Kennedy Wilson has included, upgrading machinery, extensive upgrades of the course including the creation of a short game area, riveting of traditional links pot bunkers, grass pathways, all enhancements that make full use of the dunes and natural terrain.
