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.
