Narin and Portnoo Golf Club, Donegal Northern Ireland Highlights

Narin and Portnoo Golf Club in northwest County Donegal, Ireland lies a few miles beyond the famous tweed outlets of Ardara. So you might think getting there is just a matter of following the signs. But even with GPS, virtually anyplace can be tough to find in this remote part of northwest Ireland and it can be especially difficult to find Narin and Portnoo Golf Club, an unassuming looking course tucked amongst the caravans and dunes down by the shore.

You will soon find out that Narin and Portnoo Golf Club is as stimulating, exciting, scenic, and especially enjoyable a golf course as you will ever have the good fortune to play. After a gentle start that allows you to get into the flow of the game, you arrive at Narin and Portnoo’s 5th, and begin a lengthy stretch of holes, all the way through the 17th, that are as much fun as any we have played in Ireland. Terrifically old-fashioned and natural, Narin and Portnoo Golf Club is links golf as it was meant to be. The clubhouse at Narin and Portnoo, not much larger than the adjacent caravans, consists mainly of a changing room and a bar area, with the “pro shop” tucked behind a corner of the bar.
