Drumcondra haven is one of nation's best courses

IT'S only an Eamonn 'Sheila' Darcy goalkick away from Tolka Park. Ierne has been packing them in since 1911.

It's a Drumcondra haven, and its pitch and putt course is among the best in the country.

The fairways are cut from tee to green, making the craft that bit easier for beginners.

Lovely trees enhance the scenery and the deep bunkers and small greens test the best of them.


Huge care goes into maintaining the venue. And its elevated greens are a pleasant feature.

It has staged many Majors, and its Scratch Cup and two Opens are among the most popular events on the Dublin circuit.

Other sports also take place on site. Your Pitch and Putt badge grants you access to the bowls, snooker and gym.

The kettle is always on the boil for new members and, situated only 10 minutes from the city, it's in a very convenient spot. There's also a large car park.

The impressive entrance is on the Grace Park Road, and there's more information on 836 0863.
