Concra Wood Golf and Country Club
Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan
Just one hour from Dublin Airport near the town of Castleblayney, County Monaghan, lies the hidden gem that is Concra Wood Golf Course.

Concra Wood Golf and Country Club is an 18-hole championship course set on 240 acres of dramatic wooded landscape that tilts down to breathtaking Lough Muckno. Panoramic views stretch across the Monaghan drumlins with the Cooley and Mourne Mountains to the east, and the Slieve Gullion and Mullyash Mountains to the north. Surrounded by the lake and its scattering of islands, this setting is the perfect spot for a game of golf.

The shape and flow of the golf course is perfectly complemented by the natural drumlins that roll across the countryside. This easy rhythm adds to the beauty of the course and its challenges, suitable for novices and high handicappers alike. Woods and trees stretch their way elegantly around the course and between holes to give Concra Wood Golf Course a truly natural touch. The View Restaurant, located at the highest point on the course, offers local food with panoramic views of the Monaghan scenery and beyond.
