    Old Head Story

The Story

Occupying a stunning and unique headland reaching out over two miles into the Atlantic Ocean, the Old Head of Kinsale is home to the most spectacular world-class golf course and luxury Members' accommodation. Located in County Cork on the South West Coast of Ireland, as the incredible brainchild of the late John O'Connor together with his brother Patrick, the Club has developed into one of the most recognised and sought after golf experiences anywhere on earth. It is a sanctuary for those seeking the finest in personalized service. We look forward to welcoming you to the 'Old Head Experience' in the very near future.



Ireland's wild and rugged landscape, green pastures and jagged cliffs have remained a source of amazement to visitors from all over the world. At Old Head man's ingenuity has created a modern international amenity in harmony with one of Ireland's geographical wonders.

The course has been sensitively designed and managed in a way which works with nature rather than against it. The course provides a true test against the hazards that nature provided. At Old Head we see ourselves as guardians of this truly unique natural wonder.
