We both played golf here and enjoyed dinner here. The beautiful scenery and challenge of the course beats Pebble Beach, in our opinion. Every morsel of dinner was extraordinary. Truly amazing! Each of the four of us dining were blown away by the quality of each dish.

I'm not sure how this can be anything but number one! The hotel is beautifully situated overlooking the water, cliffs and golf course. Our room was large, well equipped and very luxurious. The staff was friendly. You are isolated at this location so be aware that you are most likely confined to the hotel for food too... high quality but... More

Had morning open during our stay in Kinsale and decided to explore a bit. We heard about Old Head Kinsale and thought we'd drive out to see it. What a treasure. Love the views from the cliffs and then went down to the beach for a picnic. Most people just breeze through the town of Kinsale and never get to... More

Not too often you can rate everything about a place as excellent. Old Head is one of them. From the very first sighting of the golf course everything is WOW. The location is stunning with the golf course sitting at the end of the peninsular. You are greeted at the entrance and directed to the car park where you are... More

This is one hell of a spot, wonderful place. We went for the golf but couldn't play in the end due to injury. Instead we enjoyed the services at the hotel, where the food and was excellent, service very friendly (not at all stuck up as I had feared given the stature of the golf club). We took a buggy...

This gem is everything you might want when getting away from your hectic schedule. I am not a golfer but I wish I were when I visit this spectacular course and hotel. I walk the course with my friends that play golf and it truly is breath taking as well as being a challenging golf experience as it can get... More

One of the great golf courses in the world. Lucky to have added this jewel to collecdtion of Top 100 in world. (Have played 24 so far) Visually staggering --- great condition for end of season. And bonus --- hotel of 14 rooms one of the best ever! Not cheap but worth the money if you are going to Ireland.

My first time at the Atlantic Ocean. I am happy that I went to the cliff there. It is really ammazing and beautifull. It look like an actual head. Unfortunetly the park was closed and I didn't find a place to reach the water.

Discovered this special place by word of mouth. "You just have to go and experience it," was the recommendation. We were not disappointed. Spectacular setting, great service and attention to detail, delicious food, luxurious rooms, and a golf course to inspire and test the best amongst us. A truly worthwhile excursion off the beaten track. Take a couple of extra... More
