Mannan Castle Golf Club and its golf course can be found within County Monaghan in the northeast of Ireland near to the border that the country shares with Northern Ireland. The site lies to the north of the town of Carrickmacross which is the birthplace of a world famous type of lace and is home to a number of historical and ecclesiastical places of interest. The town is twinned with Carhaix in Brittany, France

Founded in 1993 the club here has an interesting, if somewhat short history. Work began on the course in the February of 1992 with the first round being played here on the 1st of May in 1993. Originally the course was just nine holes however it was extended in the year 2000 to the full 18. Since then the club have continued to improve the course and other facilities here making this a popular, high quality golfing options with both visitors and locals alike. 

From the yellow tees the course measures 5153 metres and has a par of 70. This course is a demanding and interesting parkland with plenty of features to entertain and challenge players of varying strengths. Expect a good presence of mature and young trees as well as tricky dog legs that will require accuracy. Combine this with multi-tiered greens and well placed hazards and players here are sure to be in for a treat. 

The club is well equipped to meet the needs of all that play here and has great facilities. The clubhouse is equipped with a well-stocked bar and restaurant for all to relax in after their rounds. There is also a modest professional shop offering a number of items for both sale and hire. Practice facilities here are excellent and are something that the club prides itself on. They include a sizeable driving range, pitch and putt area and not one but two putting greens.

Tee time availability for visitors to this course is generally very fair and there should be a time to suit all if they are willing to avoid peak times such as weekends. Considering the quality of the course and facilities available the green fee rates here are truly excellent and there are usually a number of offers to be had. 

Access to the club from most of the north of Ireland as well as Northern Ireland is good by road and the major industrial town of Drogheda is only 40 minutes to the south of the site by car. In terms of accommodation, there are a good selection of providers in and around the local area which should suit most.
