A new golf links course will be up and running for 2026 on Ireland’s best beach – Curracloe, Co Wexford – If you’re considering a golf trip to Ireland, it might be worth adding this to your list.

The world’s next great seaside links is coming to Ireland. Curracloe Links, located adjacent to the white
sands of Curracloe Beach, is designed by the renowned team of Dana Fry and Jason Straka and developed by Neville Hotels. Ground breaking for the new golf links took place in early 2024, with an expected opening in 2026.

The golf course is in the same location as Neville Hotels’ newest property, Ravenport Resort.
The announcement of the development of the golf course comes as the Ravenport Resort, a luxury hotel with 50 rooms, a spa and a leisure club, prepares to commence operation this spring. The €20-million project is the culmination of a 25-year dream to develop a golf destination and resort that introduces travellers from around the world to the untouched beauty of southeast Ireland, one of the country’s undiscovered gems.

Named the “best beach in Ireland” by the readers of the Irish Independent, Curracloe Beach was the filming location for the Steven Spielberg epic film “Saving Private Ryan.” Fry and Straka, whose previous works include Erin Hills Golf Course in Wisconsin, host site of the 2017 U.S. Open, and Calusa Pines in Naples, Florida, named Top 25 Modern Golf Course in the U.S. by Golf Week Magazine, have a bold design for Curracloe Links unlike any other in the country.

“The ancient linksland of Curracloe Links, with its’ rolling hills, long sea views and rugged natural bunkers, will offer a quintessential Irish golf experience and lure people from all over the world to its’ fairways,” says Straka, past president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects.
“With this, their first opportunity to work in Ireland, we’re confident Jason and Dana will create a golf course that’s as special as the site upon which it’s built,” says Neville. “We looked at many golf design firms all over the world, and are certain Fry/Straka will build something truly unforgettable.”
