Dublin Marathon

The Dublin Marathon is an annual marathon held in October each year. While the main event is very popular, there is also the chance to walk the entire stretch since there are no cut off times, making it a great tradition to take part in even if you are not the athletic type. The course will take you from the starting point at Fitzwilliam Street up north toward the Phoenix Park where you will run past the Dublin Zoo and wave at the giraffes and elephants. The race then follows a path through the Dublin inner city, passing Brickfields Park, the University of Dublin and Elm Park Golf Course to name a few of the sights. Visit their website for more information and register for the upcoming event!

Golf in Dublin - Island Golf

Some of the best golf in Dublin can be enjoyed on the North Bull Island, a small island in the Dublin Bay that feels like it was made with golf in mind. Here you will find the Royal Dublin Golf Club, a stunning flat 18 hole links course and St Anne's Golf Club, the "sister course" on the north side of the island. Of course (no pun intended) there are also golf courses on the mainland, such as the Elmgreen Golf Club, but going to the island for a day of golf is an activity that can't be missed!
