Scenic Splendor Meets Golfing Thrills:
Our course, described as clifftop set with parkland soil and a genuine links feel, offers challenges for golfers of all levels.

The course whispers lessons with every swing, inviting you back for more rounds amidst this coastal paradise.
A Journey Through Time:
In 1905, a press report marveled at the magnificent scenery and sporting challenges. Today, Wicklow Golf Club maintains its allure, welcoming new members, guests, and visitors with open arms. Its rich history, from a demanding nine-hole course on O’Connor family farmland to the present par 71 gem, reflects the club’s commitment to preserving its character and appeal.
Step into the new clubhouse, a splendid addition to Wicklow’s scenic landscape since 2002. Overlooking the stunning coastline, the lounge bar provides the perfect post-golf retreat.
