Leave the rush of the city behind on a one-hour drive from Dublin, and test your skills playing 18 holes at Castle Barna Golf Club.
Set on the banks of the Grand Canal, this course is a great way to see central Ireland and test out your skills on the tees. With its immaculate fairways and well-maintained greens, the course has hosted numerous prestigious Irish golfing events, and will challenge any visiting golfer with its tree-line holed and terrain.
Grab an iron for the challenging tee shot on the course's signature hole—the par-3 "Barge," which requires driving your shot as straight as an arrow. The course will test the skills of even the lowest handicap golfer, but is still accessible enough for any traveling golfer to enjoy. After the round, relax with a drink and a bite to eat in the charming old stone clubhouse.
