The Clubhouse at Fota Island Golf is a creative conversion of old stone farm buildings. The exterior retains the original stonework and country feel that merges effortlessly into the surrounding landscape. The Pantry is open daily where tea & coffee, pastries, sandwiches, and light bites will be served for dine-in and take-away. 

Originally designed in 1993 by Irish Ryder Cup star Christy O’Connor Jr. and twice English Amateur Champion Peter McEvoy, before being redesigned in 2000 by golf architect Jeff Howes, it comes as no surprise that Fota Island Resort has been a three-time host to the Irish Open with all three courses (Deerpark, Belvelly and Barryscourt) maintained to the very highest standard all year around.

Just a few minutes walk from the popular clubhouse you will find one of Ireland’s most sophisticated and modern golf facilities, Fota Island Golf Academy. Focused on ensuring golfers of all ages and abilities have the support they need, step inside and you’ll find a dedicated personal trainer and fully equipped strength and conditioning gym, daily tuition enhanced by Trackman high-tech video systems and superior coaching from talented PGA professionals. Coaching is also available on the course and in the newly renovated outdoor practice bays.
