Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links, Portmarnock – 4 Star

Welcome to Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links

Just fifteen minutes from Dublin International Airport, Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links enjoys an unmatched coastal location, with breathtaking views over the famous five-mile “Velvet Strand’ and its hugely popular beachside Golf Links.

Once the grand seaside home to the Jameson Distillery dynasty – today, the Hotel is a well equipped and ideally situated conference destination as well as a much sought after stunning wedding backdrop.

Appealing as much to the quiet-seekers in search of some coastal respite as to the group of dedicated golf enthusiasts. Portmarnock Hotel presents a well-balanced offering of two bars, a restaurant, complimentary hotel-wide wifi, free ample onsite parking for guests and an in-house spa.

History:

Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links has welcomed thousands of new and returning faces from across the globe since it first opened its doors as a beachside destination. However, its origins stretch back to over a century ago, where the land on which it stands was part of the private family estate of ‘St. Marnock’s’ – where the patriarch of the Irish Jameson Whiskey Company called ‘home’.

The Jameson Connection

In 1788, John Jameson (a Scotsman) married the eldest daughter of another powerful Scottish distilling family from a nearby village. Her name was Margaret Haig and together, after their marriage in Scotland, they moved to Dublin where John began working to further develop a huge new Dublin Distillery in Bow Street which had originally opened in 1780. A few years later, in 1810, the Jameson Family bought out other shareholders of the Bow Street distillery and thus began the Jameson Irish Whiskey company. Four of John Jameson’s sons followed their father into distilling in Ireland, John II, James, William and Andrew.

St. Marnock’s was the Jameson ‘seaside seat’ during this time, an ideal escape from the city due to its enviable shoreline doorstep.

King Edward VII often visited the Jamesons at their beachside home and on his last official visit to Ireland in 1907, he unveiled a plaque which was designed especially to mark the occasion of the marriage between members of two great distilling families, Jameson and Haig. The plaque can still be seen in what was then labelled ‘The Secret South Garden’.

The Jameson family had a nine-hole golf course on the site over 100 years ago; this golf course is now part of both the Portmarnock Golf Club and the Bernhard Langer-designed Dublin Golf Links course.

 Golf :

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.
