De Courcey Restaurant
Taking its name from the de Courcey family who you can read of in the history section and on the sample menu, our five-star a la carte restaurant, with magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean and Lighthouse, provides spectacular culinary delights bearing testament to the skills of Rory McDonnell and our team of in-house chefs.
Dine on lobster, scallops or oysters from the tank, freshly caught fish, poultry, game, and the finest cuts of meat with our extensive wine list chosen from the Old and New Worlds’ Vineyards.
For the ultimate in outdoor al fresco dining, pre or aprés golf, overlooking the Old Head Lighthouse and Atlantic Ocean. The Terrace is quite simply unsurpassed in its ability to create the most memorable dining experience anywhere.
Our attentive team will be on hand with their impeccable service as you gaze over the course to the Old Head lighthouse and beyond to the Atlantic Ocean, the scent of the beautiful flora and surf around you.
While on the terrace why not also take time to enjoy the all-weather putting green. Featured at the eastern side of the terrace with a lovely seating area and stunning views it is a great place to get together daytime or evening over a few drinks.
The kitchen is a very exciting and dynamic place for us at Old Head. It is run by Rory McDonnell who is its backbone, with a team of 5 chefs. While at the helm of this very creative hub Rory is forever creating, nurturing and evolving, pushing the boundaries of his culinary expertise to the delight of the discerning diner.
Often to be found early morning visiting the local harbour to ensure the catch of the day is destined for Old Head, Rory also has an excellent relationship with the local farmers, farmer's markets and butchers in line with Old Head's locally sourced field- and ocean- to-fork philosophy.
The restaurant is overseen by our restaurant manager Jackie Mutter. She and her team of superbly passionate front-of-house staff and sommeliers strive to give a service we think of as relaxed and natural professionalism.
We aim to cater for food intolerances and allergies provided these are mentioned at the time of booking.
