Old Head is the most spectacular and breathtaking golf course in the world! A bucket list golf course for any golfer! It was hard to focus on the shot at hand as I was constantly admiring the beautiful views! My wife took over a hundred photos during the round as she walked the course with me. It is simply stunning... More

My husband n I drove out to walk The Old Head n remember the past and view the present. We were astounded when we were prohibited from going past the very large guarding gates by a very pleasant gatekeeper who informed us unless we were play golf we would not be permitted in.... Ironically just behind him n directly in... More

The old head of Kinsale was a beautiful place until someone put a golf course there. Locals and visitors are prohibited from walking paths that have been walked by their forefathers for centuries. The local government should be ashamed for allowing it to occur.

I have been fortunate enough to play golf courses all over the world but nothing I have seen surpasses the majestic scenery ,dramatic coastline offered at Old Head. A group of 16 all agreed this was the most spectacular course we had ever played. It should be on every golfers bucket list!!

Since I first saw a photo of Old Head a couple of years ago, I decided I must play the course. Ten days ago it came to fruition. We arrived at the huge gates guarding the entrance to the whole resort and were greeted by the gate keeper who told us to drive right in and we would be met... More

A must play experience for every golfer, this course has it all. Beautiful scenery, challenging but playable golf holes , weather that can change every 10 minutes. Above all the most welcoming staff from the Clubhouse Team to the Caddy Masters. All they want to do is make your visit special and enjoyable. The word "Failte" should be in 10... More

I visited the Old Head GC for the third time last week and have to share my experience of the place. It really is the most stunning Golf Course in Ireland and maybe in the World. From the moment you drive through the Security Gate until you complete your round of golf it is impossible not to be impressed with... More

Wow what a course. Very professional run,caddies available,we took buggies instead,which was a good decision as green to tee was a it far.The views are amazing each hole is a picture postcard,with the Atlantic Ocean on both sides of the peninsula. The wind was blowing 30 mph,but amazingly our group of six players only lost 8balls. The clubhouse has everything... More
