I was slightly confused about the cost of the round. I paid € 28 online for the 18 holes and then when I arrived to play l was told it would cost € 45 for the cart. If you have never played there , it would be very difficult getting around the mountain with all the elevation changes w/o a cart.
I was the second person to tee off at 8:36am but by the time I got to hole number 12 ,there were four groups of senior locals in front of me . There was a foursome on # 12, twosome on #13,foursomes on #14, and a foursome on # 15. I was told by some ladies that the course allows the seniors to play a 12 hole round.This allows them to cut over from 7 to 12 in front of people like myself who are playing 18 holes. The seniors tried to convince me to go back to 7 and I would avoid all the seniors who cut in front of me on # 12 .I could not do that because I had cab picking me at 12:30pm. The view of the course is great but the cost of the round is misleading and the Pro Shop didn’t inform me that a group of seniors would be cutting in front of me extending my round of golf by 30 minutes!

He would play this course again.

I was so glad I stumbled across this course. This course had breathtaking views from every hole. located in howth Ireland this course is set on top of a hill that over looks Dublin. Everyone was extremely nice and accommodating. The course is extremely hilly so I would recommend getting the electric push cart if you aren't used to walking. This course includes many blind shots show I would also recommend using the 18birdes app to view the layout of each hole. This course quickly became one of my favorite courses and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great experience near Dublin. You won't regret it.

very quirky not in a good way. Lots of blind tee shots. Course is shoehorned into side of Howth mountain so course is very sloped and very hilly. You'd better be very fit and very accurate if you want to play here!
Also many hillwalkers walking across fairways as they have rights of way. Gets annoying when about to swing and oblivious hill walkers pop out of nowhere down the fairway right in your line.

On plus side amazing views of Dublin bay and Irish Sea.

There are lots of great golf courses in the Dublin area but I would skip this one if your a serious golfer.
