The Old Head Golf Links is a remarkable development, an Atlantic promontory that is unrivaled in terms of drama and beauty. It rises hundreds of feet high above dramatic cliffs, surrounded by the ocean on all sides and commanding the most spectacular views from virtually every part. The Old Head of Kinsale is a national monument and an ancient royal site, fortified by a castle at the narrowest part of the promontory. The first Irish settlers fortified the peninsula by building a fort, the remains of which can still be seen today along with the castles and signal tower on the Old Head itself. The new lighthouse was built on the site in 1853.
