A golfers dream. One of the most stunning courses on the planet. Forget about your score. The views will drain all concentration. Food and service, top notch. Prices not for the faint of heart but if you find yourself anywhere near Kinsale, it must be seen.

I didn't play the course, but wish I had, the wife doesn't play and wanted to do other things. Might be the most scenic golf course I've ever seen! It's pricey to play, I think they quoted me something like 250 Euro, but it would be a life experience for sure. Still, worth the visit just for the scenery.

I've been here many times during the last 15 years and love to take some of my customers to play this Spectaculare Golf Course. It's breathtaking, so beautiful and very challengeing, especially when you play in the wind, wich is almost always. The fairways are very good, fast greens and some demanding cliffs and valleys. The food at the restaurant... More

Had a chance to play Old Head in early November. It was one of the best golf experiences that I have had. The scenery is better than Pebble Beach. The course was well conditioned and is very fair. I used a caddy, but one is not necessary. There are no blind shots. I used the rental clubs which were new... More

The golf course is a "must experience" setting. Not for the high handicappers but a fantastic setting for a "spoiled" walk. Spectacular views. Terrifying drops to the ocean. Must see before one departs this earth.

The finest golf course ever played. The views are amazing. The staff are warm and friendly. The golf is challenging and if you want a terrific caddy, ask for Terry McAuliffe.

This is like going to Disneyland for golfers. Probably the most spectacular golf course I have ever played. Every hole has a breathtakingly beautiful view, you almost can't focus on the golf. We played here twice. It isn't a true links course, and maybe one of the longest walks from the tips I have ever had on any golf course.... More

No matter how badly you play when you visit, you will DEFINITELY be overawed by the experience. The views are simply breathtaking. The food superb. The welcome and ambiance are fab. Go there even if you don't play golf !! No need to say anymore.
