Elite Recommends – Dublin’s Ultimate VIP Experiences


Doonbeg Golf Club

Take a championship golf course designed by Greg Norman, a hotel recognized by Small Luxury Hotels of the World and a stretch of the most heart-melting coastline in Ireland, and you’ve got the stuff of elite dreams.

Just a 45-minute helicopter ride from Dublin, the village of Doonbeg is a hidden gem on the unspoiled west coast, built around a 16th century castle and surrounded by enchanting Celtic relics. The 18-hole golf course is Greg Norman’s only design in the British Isles and frequently appears in the top rankings of the best courses worldwide. An astonishing piece of links land, the crescent-shaped Doughmore Bay undulates for a mile and a half, accommodating the traditional out-and-back course beautifully. Non-golfers can explore the landscape on horseback, go surfing or simply relax in the fantastic Lodge spa. The immaculate hotel suites combine country house elegance with modern amenities, and the fine dining is exceptional.
