We stayed at Old Head to play golf and had booked a package. The golf course is the most beautiful in Europe due to breathtaking views and design, the bar is very nice with friendly staff. The food prices are pretty high with fish and chips at over 20€. The rooms lack a bit of maintenance (bathroom ceiling with mushrooms), as management obviously puts highest priority on golf course maintenance and development. Breakfast is average, no cheese or sausage available from the buffet. The golf course is definitely 5*+, the small hotel can only be rated 3*+, but has the potential to receive a better rating. For this it probably needs a good hotel manager which might be a problem for a house with less than 20 rooms.
