    The Irish Open is the marquee golf event that takes place on the island of Ireland each year. First played in 1927, this top tournament on the European Tour has been hosted at great courses such as Royal County Down, Ballybunion, and Portmarnock.

    The K Club is calling

    The Horizon Irish Open 2023 takes place at The K Club, a 5-star resort in County Kildare that's a convenient 30-minute drive away from Dublin city.

    One of the island of Ireland’s top luxury getaways, the K Club is known for its fine dining, pampering spa treatments and the range of country pursuits on offer to its guests. But it’s the two Arnold Palmer-designed golf courses that set it apart

    This was the home of the epic 2006 Ryder Cup and the host of 13 European Opens. With this kind of track record, the Irish Open at the K Club is sure to be a golfing event to remember.

    If you can’t make a trip to the K Club in 2023, don’t worry! This venue will be part of the DP World Tour schedule for some time to come, as the Irish Open will be hosted here again in 2025 and 2027. It will also play host to another championship, the Challenge Tour’s Irish Challenge, in 2024 and 2026.

    Fun in the Thoroughbred County

    County Kildare isn’t just a great place to play golf. There’s plenty to see and do while you stay here. Often called the “Thoroughbred County”, Kildare is home to many of Ireland's top stud farms, stables and racecourses, as well as the Irish National Stud, which was founded in 1900 by Colonel William Hall Walker.

    If it’s history you’re after, try Castletown House, an extravagant Palladian mansion built in the 18th century for William Connolly, one of the richest men on the island who owned a staggering 100,000 acres of land.

    Or, you’re looking to get your heart racing, why not try a boat tour along the Grand Canal, or if you prefer dry land, take to your two wheels and cycle along the Royal Canal Greenway, which starts just outside of Dublin city and ends in County Longford!

    A golfing heritage

    Perusing the list of past winners reads like a who’s who of golfing legends. Since George Duncan's win at the inaugural event at Portmarnock back in 1927, greats such as Seve Ballesteros, José María Olazábal, Ian Woosnam, Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Sergio García, Sam Torrance, Colin Montgomerie, Pádraig Harrington and Shane Lowry have all lifted the coveted trophy.

    In 2023, the action returns to the spectacular surroundings of the K Club in County Kildare!
