St. Helens Bay Golf Resort has over the last eight years developed into one of Ireland's foremost golf destinations. With a challenging 27 hole course, panoramic views of the South Wexford Coastline and comfortable on-site accommodations, the visitor is guaranteed an enjoyable golfing experience.
Located only 5 minutes away from Rosslare Ferry Port - the busiest port in Ireland - and 20 minutes from Wexford town. Dublin Airport is a two hour drive away, follow the N25 towards Rosslare Harbour and take the second turn right at the new school at Kilrane village and follow the St. Helen's Bay signs.
John Mara, Pat Suttle, Derek O’Hare and of course Ryder Cup hero Philip Walton were the designers of the original 18 hole course (Yellow/Green), a design that was so good it has not been changed since. With majestic sea and beach views the original 16, 17 and 18 holes (now the Green 7, 8, & 9) have since become some of the best known and admired holes in all of Ireland.
On 5th April 2003 another nine holes was opened for the first time thus enabling St Helen’s to offer a loop of 27 holes thereby giving members a visitors a wider selection of golf challenges.
In addition to the golf facilities over the years other amenities have been added including full bar facilities, the new St Helens Steakhouse, 5 hard tennis courts, Children’s playground, and of course 257 holiday cottages most of which are privately owned.
