... a conference call so I went to the bar and had some VERY good oysters. I met some Irishmen who grew up in Doonbeg (our next destination) so we got some good insider tips. IWe had a late dinner, walked around the city, which was quite lively, and called it a night.
The Irish people are lovely, friendly beyond measure. We feel a certain kinship with them, since both of us have Irish roots. It is an honor to be part of this heritage.
... When they did they passed me through security the last step of which was to relay back to them the code number they sent during the call to the phone on whih we were speaking - if it is possible to read a text during an incoming call it is beyond my technical skill. No problem, they said they'd call me back. Ten minutes later they did and took me through security again and sent me another text since the first became inopeartive when the first ...
... and took the 4 hour bus ride to Dublin, listening to Walk the Moon the entire time of course. When we finally arrived we were really hungry and since Emily had been to Dublin before knew of a fish and chips place that was really famous. The place was tiny and we all couldn't even fit in at once. On the wall they have a list of all the famous people that have eaten there, including Bruce Springsteen, Hilary Swank, U2, and a lot more. We brought our ...
... do you intend to get your name out and into the public eye?
York: (Laughing) Great question! This is actually one of those pearls I have already gained from being here. Apparently, publication is the only way to get published. Since few standard publishing companies will touch an unpublished/unproven work, I've been steered towards some mystery magazines and writing contests where I will be trying my luck. At the same time, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links
We found the Portmarnock Hotel to be above average in almost all aspects of catering to the world traveler. The room was clean, comfortable, well furnished and roomy. The bathroom was spotless and roomy as well. Our view was as beautiful as promised and all the amenities were also as promised. The coffee left a lot to be desired, as does most hotel in-room coffee! Breakfasts each morning were the same, but always very good. We found the staff to be very helpful and very polite. We felt very much at home there and would recommend the Portmarnock to all. We will absolutely go back again!
Wonderful hotel--good location, nice room, friendly staff, beautiful views, and close to Dublin. Fitness room was small but functional with an adequate selection of cardio machines and a few free weights. Left early so missed the continental breakfast that was included in the price. Free parking included.
And it was fantastic. Of course, the bridal suite is going to be amazing, but apparently the normal rooms were great too.
Stayed at the Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links for just one night on 11th December for a Christmas Party. It is located half way between Portmarnock & Malahide around 11 miles from the centre of Dublin. The hotel oozes class, and is very tasefully decorated indeed. The rooms are very comfortable, and everything you would care to need is provided. The staff are very helpful & attentive, and the food we had was top class; plentiful, hot & tasty. I would have loved to stay for longer, and will probably go back here next year. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. If anyone needs any information, don't hesitate to e-mail me.
Only used this hotel because the Grand in Malahide was full. Lucky break - much superior to the Grand in terms both of accommodation and food. Would now use this hotel as a base when travelling into Dublin. Would recommend it to anyone
Top class luxury hotel!
Very comfortable golfing hotel, wonderful location on the beach. (Frankly Dublin is just far too busy!). Excellent service/food/room/location etc. Recommended!
Portmarnock Hotel is only 25 minutes from Dublin by car and 15 minutes to the airport but you are in a lovely small village overlooking the Irish Sea. A true 4 star hotel with outstanding service. The staff is so polite. There are standard rooms as well as superior seaview rooms. We had the seaview room and it was wonderful to look out at the strand and the sea. If you like to golf or walk on the beach, this is the place. Portmarnock is situated between the village of Howth (great seafood restaurant Aqua) and Malahide (good shops and restaurants). The Jameson bar is interesting because the locals inhabit a section of it and you are welcome to join them but they wouldn't dream of joining you. Interesting. Think of this place when going to Dublin if you are looking for outdoor activity and peace and quiet.
Great place - wonderful views over beach and great walks - plus links golk
Portmarnock is only a short journey from where I live but the journey to the Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Club was well-made. Hotel is very comfortable - only missing a pool. Direct access to the wonderful Portmarnock Strand - great beach and walks. Golf course is of highest standard. Good deals available on expedia and laterooms. Whether you live in Dublin Ohio or Dublin Ireland, this hotel should rate highly on places to visit for a relaxing vacation.
Nothing is overlooked except for the sea
We have just come back from a stay at the Portmarnock Hotel and cannot recommend it enough. From the fantastic setting overlooking the sea, the gorgeous mini suite that we stayed in, the food, value for money and relaxation from golf or spa depending on your taste; we could not have asked for better. Only a 20 minute trip on the Dart into the rigours of Dublin yet it felt like a million miles. Definitely planning return trips.
We went here for 4 days in early March, so got a fantastic (Expedia) rate (booked 6 weeks in advance) of approx. Â£30 (40 Euros) pppnight, inc. great silver-service / ivory table linen / breakfast cooked to order. Our bedroom had large, curved windows with golf course view and distant sea view. Brilliant. Walk to the long, sandy, clean beach ('strand') in 3 minutes. Could not fault anything. Meal service good and unobtrusive. Food very good. Could not afford the AA 3-star rosette restaurant food, but got a great 3-course meal for 20 Euros (before 7pm, and offer ends late March!). Gnochhi or soup starter, beef tournedos and red onion mash or chicken wrapped in Parma ham mains, mixed ice cream in brandy snap basket or Baileys cheesecake dessert are typical. Choice changes weekly. Beat that for 20 Euros. Cheapest wine about 20 Euros for 75cl(South African house white was not that brilliant.) But we could have splashed out 1000 Euros (yes, one thousand) on some 1896 (yes 1896) red stuff. Decided not to. Had a fantastic break, and only tempted into Dublin once, and the nearby (one-hour walk) Malahide twice. Bus links to Malahide and Dublin are pretty good, and last buses don't seem to leave early! Malahide has some nice, typical pubs. VEry busy at weeked. Pub food is fine but hotel food better!Bus - about 1.5 Euros single - seems cheaper mid-daytime. Bus to Dublin takes 50 mins, depending on route, so is a bit of a pain. And very bumpy. (We did not want to drink and drive, so flew over, booking well in advance and on-line with Aer Lingus for about 75 euros return, each. Also a bargain!) Taxi airport to hotel 20-21 Euros = Â£15 - a bit steep for 6 or 7 miles. But the bus goes into Dublin and out again, so is not worth it, according to the TIC. Did not try Cruzzo restaurant in Malahide (see other review), as is not open all day, and hotel menu was cheaper and more interesting for the 'tourist' menu. Would highly recommend this Portmarnocj Hotel and Golf Links to anyone - after reading reviews about noisy city centre hotels, I'd prefer on balance to stay a little out of town. And cannot think of a better place. (I'm not the hotel owner, by the way.) Hope this helps - not enough reviews around on this hotel !
