Home to not one but two championship golf courses, Carton House Golf is one of Ireland’s most famous and prestigious golf venues. Nestled within 1,100 acres of private parkland, the courses benefit from beautiful views, natural woodlands and a location just 25 minutes from Dublin Airport.
Carton House was the venue for the 2005, 2006 and 2013 Irish Opens as well as the 2018 World Amateur Team Championships, and is the home of the Golfing Union of Ireland. Choose to play on the O’Meara Parkland Golf Course or the Montgomerie Links Golf Course.
Designed by 1998 Open Champion and US Masters Champion Mark O’Meara, the O’Meara Parkland Golf Course allows you to meander through ancient woodlands and skirt the banks of the river Rye before sending the golf ball soaring over golden waters. Played by over 30,000 golfers every season the 18th hole offers a breath-taking backdrop of the historic Palladian Manor House, reflective lake and picturesque Boat House-said to have been custom built for Queen Victoria. Designed to challenge golfers of all abilities whilst bringing the beauty and history of the Carton House estate to the fore.
Inspired by the greatest links lands of the world, The Montgomerie, an inland links experience, pays tribute to the traditions of the game and sets a challenge like no other. Designed by Colin Montgomerie with numerous cavernous bunkers to test even the seasoned golfer, journey across impeccable greens and vast fairways as you play on the soil many an Irish Open champion has.
