Dublin 14, Dublin City

Located at the foot of the picturesque Dublin Mountains, golfers will enjoy this quiet area of Dublin as the Castle golf club (353 1 492 0264) at Rathfarnham, five miles from the city centre, offers 18 holes, par 70 parkland course with fantastic views of the Mountains as a backdrop.  Milltown golf club (353 1 497 6008) is a second fine parkland course with 18 holes, par 71. 

Rathfarnham Castle (353 1 495 1101) is well worth a visit if you are in the area.  The Castle has a rich, colourful history, which dates back to 1583 when a Yorkshire man Adam Loftus built it.  Loftus later became Archbishop of Dublin and Lord Chancellor of Ireland.  Guided tours allow visitors to catch a glimpse of the historic interior, which shows the different layers of the Castle as they were discovered.
