Old Head Golf Links

Old Head Golf Links located approx 25 minutes drive from the charming and picturesque town of Kinsale in County Cork is one of the most renowned and admired courses in Ireland.  Built on an area of land jutting out over 2 miles into the ocean the scenery surrounding Old Head golf course is hair-raising and heart-stirring as each hole provides dramatic Atlantic Ocean views.

With the impulsive and every wavering ocean breeze Old Head golf course provides a steely challenge to the low and high handicapper alike and afterwards you are invited to the clubhouse which also overlooks the scenic masterpieces and allows you to experience the unique setting all over again.

Danny Brassil, Director of Golf, Old Head Golf Links
Old Head of Kinsale is home to a World-Class Golf Course and 15 Luxury accommodation suites.  Ranked by Links Magazine as the Most Spectacular Golf Course in the World, nine holes of Old Head golf course play along the cliff tops and all 18 holes provide stunning ocean views.

Every hole at Old Head Golf Links has views of the ocean and cliffs and every hole gives you the opportunity to lose a ball. We played Old Head golf course on a calm sunny day with no rain, does no get much better than that.
