It is considered the “gourmet capital of Ireland”, annually hosting the world famous “Kinsale Food Festival” in October. It is a sophisticated cosmopolitan seaside town with a tourist season stretching from April to November. The town nestles between the hills and the shoreline with a maze of narrow, flower decorated streets with historical links to the French, Spanish, British and Americans. Quaint properties house everything from delightful restaurants, pubs, wine bars, antique and curio shops, jewellery shops, art galleries, beauty and hair salons, coffee shops and crafts showrooms. kinsale.ie Common among all are unspoiled panoramic ocean views—although few can match the centuries of folklore and legend surrounding the steep cliff face headland of Old Head. Ancient ruins of lighthouses built in 1667 and 1814 found at the site add to its charm. It’s a parcel of land with genuine beauty, great course design and historic intrigue. Built on a 220-acre diamond of land, jutting out just over two miles into the Atlantic Ocean, Old Head Golf Links rises in places to over 300 feet above sea level. At a touch over 6500 metres, the par 72 course has come to be known as one of golf’s great tests. Nine holes play along the cliff tops, and all 18 holes provide stunning ocean views. With the ever-changing sea breezes you may need more than just your ‘A’ game—a bit of local luck should get you by. So be sure—just to be sure—you walk the links with one of the local caddies. Old Head is reputed to have one of the most professional and extensive caddie programs in the world. The dream golf experience requires more than a remarkable golf course alone, and it appears Old Head excels in its all-round offer. The clubhouse overlooks the 18th green and commands stunning vistas of the Atlantic Ocean and the Old Head Lighthouse. The new formal dining area— the five-star de Courcey Restaurant—is a welcome addition offering an intimate evening setting. Dine on lobster, game, poultry and local produce. And if you fancy a tipple, there’s even an extensive wine list chosen from old- and new-world vineyards. Also on site are 15 Luxurious Members’ Suites (14 Seaview Suites and one Presidential Suite) delivering supreme luxury, comfort and style. And for those seeking the ultimate in relaxation, the Old Head Spa offers a place to unwind and rejuvenate both mind and body. Old Head prides itself in offering the ultimate experience in golf with a seamless blend of Irish hospitality. It’s little wonder this remarkable jewel is rapidly developing into one of the most recognised and sought after golf experiences anywhere on earth.
