“Old Head experience”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

Probably the most beautiful course I've ever played.
The views of ocean are breathtaking. The 12 hole is incredible.
The restaurant is very good, and the proshop is full of gadgets (a bt expansive)

“Religious experience at Old Head”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Our first of 8 days of golf in Ireland and it lived up to it's reputation! Breathtaking views, historic ruins and crazy golf shots. Most of all, the BEST service ever. I shipped climbs to hotel from U.S via Fed Ex and they were stuck in customs for days...staff at Old Head gave me clubs, negotiated with Fed Ex and customs and had my clubs driven by taxi from Cork in time for the approach shot on the 9th hole! Over the top service saved my vacation since Fed Ex wouldnt deliver for 5 more days this was huge! Favorite course in Ireland and we played all the greats!! Every hole was absolutely breathtaking!!

“5 Star Accommodation in a world class golf resort with breathtaking scenery”
Reviewed 12 August 2012 via mobile

I stayed in the old head golf club last night and it was fantastic. You are welcomed at the gate and the staff are waiting for you in the carpark to take your bags to your room.

Reception is a beautiful open area looking out onto the light house and 18th green. The rooms and spa are downstairs with rooms opening out onto the course and a spectacular view of the light house and ocean.

The rooms are fantastic with en suite bath, separate shower and wc, you even have your own tv in the bath. Robes and toiletries are grwat and the rooms have wifi and US and UK/I power points. The spa and treatment rooms are across the corridor with a great sauna and steamroom.

The golf is magnificent as you would expect but the catering is also 5 star. The bar and restaurant menu is full of fantastic seafood and we had a great dinner while watching the olympics.

The staff are fantastic and enjoying lunch on the deck with great wines is recommended.

“Spectacular raw Irish beauty with golf course & breathtaking views”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

Old Head Golf Links is truly one of the most spectacular pieces of raw beauty I have ever seen. I was a nongolfer guest, and both days the weather was beautiful. I spent the first afternoon walking around the area just breathing in my surroundings. As well done as the photos of Old Head are, there are none that do it justice- it's that amazing! The accommodations are 5 star with the views breathtaking. Michael Kelleher, membership & guest services guru, is incredibly knowledgeable about anything & everything in the area. He will make it happen & it appears to be done effortlessly plus he is a most enjoyable Irishman. The entire staff is so friendly and they can't do enough for you. Pam, Houston, TX
