The Portmarnock Hotel is a mere 20 minutes from Dublin airport, 30 minutes from the heart of the Irish capital itself, and 2 minutes from the famous links of Portmarnock, the resort hotel that carries the same name is simply perfect. It ticks every box. Portmarnock itself is also quite nice gentle introduction Ireland, an easy-going seaside town north of the city.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of ‘The Velvet Strand’, one of Ireland’s most stunning stretches of uninterrupted coastline – the historic Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links, once the family home of the Jameson Dynasty, has been entirely reimagined to complement a peaceful seaside location. The doorstep-beach spans five-miles of pristine sand
The Portmarnock hotel is built upon the original family home of the famous Jameson whisky dynasty. The 134 bedrooms capture the panoramic views from the Championship Links golf course, and the beach to the manicured garden courtyard of the original Jameson family gardens. With a selection of hotel rooms available, Superior, Deluxe, Family and Suites, the Portmarnock Hotel can accommodate most budgets.
A twin room with garden view
The Portmarnock hotel boasts an award-winning spa, with private massage rooms, relaxation area and well-equipped gym. Guests can treat themselves to an impressive three-course meal in the two AA Rosette awarded restaurants.
The tastefully refurbished Seaview restaurant is set in a discreet corner of the hotel where you can enjoy dining in a relaxed and peaceful setting matched with the best views in the house. Panoramic windows with magnificent views over Dublin Bay and one of Ireland’s best known landmarks, Ireland’s Eye.
The ‘1780’ is perfect for a casual group dinner and takes great pride in using only the freshest ingredients from starter course, to main, to dessert. A carefully selected collection of wines from across the world that pair to each meal create an unmistakable air of class.

The Jameson bar, set within the original Jameson home, incorporates all original wood fittings, fire places, and dons the portraits of John Jameson and his wife, Margaret Haig on the wall. Here, guests will find a jovial, warm welcome by the friendly staff, a creamy pint of Guinness and the best quality pub fare that your heart desires.

One slightly unique feature of the Portmarnock hotel is the An Sibin Pub (Pronounced Shebeen). It’s quite unusual for a hotel to incorporate their own pub, and the enterprise has to be reasonably authentic if it’s to have a chance of working. It’s a bit of a hidden gem for groups of golfers as it makes use of a legitimate heritage
Portmarnock Hotel – Single Supplements
Even though we have to impose some supplementary surcharges in line with passing costs on, we endeavour to adopt a sincere position that doesn’t seek to penalise such travellers and exploit your situation, occasionally absorbing some of the cost ourselves. Despite our commitment to fair play, there is still ultimately only two bottom-line options:
1: Pay a single traveller supplement
2: If you indicate a willingness, we can attempt to pair you in a twin room
It is worth mentioning that a single person will rarely be allowed to play a round of golf solo, and you will almost certainly be required to join a group. This can sometimes work to your advantage though, as you’ll be more flexible.
Most hotels operate a cancellation premium of some description. The amount charged however varies between chains, and even different hotels within the same chain, it also fluctuates with little sense of predictability. In addition, the terms and conditions also differ with 3 days to 24 hours being typical cut-off points beyond which cover is invalidated. Group bookings can find they’re subjected to 28 days given that a hotelier takes a bigger risk accepting such a reservation to a mass cancellation. We try to reserve piecemeal as a result
Our policy is to recover what we can for you, but we are restricted in line with what the hotel offers. It’s always helpful to check the individual hotels T&C’s. We advise you if booking by credit card, to check that you don’t hold an added service item that came when you signed up. This might cover you.
