Bridge at Castle

Bridge at Castle is played in the Clubhouse on Monday evenings from mid-September to mid-April.  Play begins at 7:30pm.  Players are requested to be seated by 7:20pm to facilitate the organisation of the game.  All adult members of the Club are welcome to play.  Spouses of adult members are also welcome.

Bridge has been played at Castle for the best part of one hundred years.

Castle Golf Club is one of the most mature 18 hole parkland golf courses in Dublin. Hidden from the hustle and bustle of its surrounding neighbourhoods of Churchtown and Rathfarnham, Castle Golf Club offers its members and visitors unparallelled playing conditions and facilities.  The club celebrated its centenary in 2013 and the course is an excellent example of golf course design, originally by Harry Colt.

Thomas MacCormac - Grandmaster and Bridge Teacher

  • You know you're in trouble when the first thing the opponents decide to do is draw trumps, and you're the declarer.
  • The real test of a bridge player isn't in keeping out of trouble, but in escaping once he's in.  
  • If 3NT is a viable proposition - then bid it.
