There are few golf links that are three miles from the centre of a capital city, with all the convenience in access to facilities that implies. The Royal Dublin Golf Club is on Bull Island in Dublin Bay. Accessed via an old wooden bridge (or via the modern causeway for tour coaches), Bull Island is a sand bank formed as a result of the construction of a sea wall in the 1800s (see history section for more).
The Bull Island, home to Royal Dublin, is celebrated throughout Europe as a wildlife habitat for its unique collection of flora and fauna, and particularly its large concentration of over-wintering wildfowl and waders. It attracts more bird-watchers than any other location in Ireland. This marine environment, with its diverse wildlife, is a constant source of enjoyment to golfers. Read more here.
