The hotel at Portmarnock, set amidst its own 200-acre estate, was once called St Marnock's House and served as the private home to the Jameson family, now so famous for the Irish whisky that they export worldwide.
The luxury hotel now in its place retains the sense of charm and history, and fully justifies its position skirting the coast. With the recent addition of the new €40 wing, the accommodation options have been further enhanced.
Whichever type of en-suite bedroom a visitor chooses, it is likely that it will feature views of either the sea or golf course, and all offer that charming mix of traditional Irish hospitality and the comforts of a top modern hotel.
In addition, superb cuisine can be enjoyed at the hotel, and the extremely luxurious Health Spa offers excellent activities for those not keen for the links.
Oceana Spa offers guests an intimate, personal retreat that serves to rejuvenate the skin, relax the body and revitalize the mind. The facilities include wellness therapy in the three purpose-built treatment rooms, sauna, nail bar, hair salon and gym.
Exquisite creations are on the menu at Osborne's Restaurant, which has been awarded an AA Rosette.
Relaxed dining and comfortable drinking are on offer in both The Cocktail Bar and The Jameson Bar.
