 Enjoy the beautiful coastal views of the Irish sea and stroll along its sandy beaches.

Sea air really is good for the health. The bracing climate by the sea is especially beneficial to the respiratory organs and the skin, but also improves circulation and strengthens the body’s defences..

GOLF

Laytown and Bettystown Golf Club in County Meath

A golf course with the odd name of Laytown and Bettystown Golf Club is one of those Irish links courses most Americans – or Europeans for that matter – may have never heard about. But, the course is a great, affordable way to play a true Irish links golf course without the high cost associated with some of the more famous ones.

It’s right outside of Drogheda in the little town of Bettystown. Betty is nowhere to be found, but photos of Ryder Cup vice captain Des Smith are all over the joint – Smith cut his golfing teeth here, as did his whole family. There is a photo of him, one of many, that shows him accepting a trophy as a junior, or as they call them here, the wee ones.

Bettystown is a true links course, in that it is on a piece of land between the Irish Sea – sometimes almost in the Irish Sea – and inland. The front nine plays up and down and through grass-covered sand dunes soaring to 20 or 30 feet high, and woe be to the hacker who is off line with his driver, or even his approach; there are valleys, nay canyons, behind those dunes in which your golf ball will remain forever in Ireland. You’ll need to be a contortionist to pull off some errant approach shots.
