We read that we could get into the golf course and club that owns the property, so we drove out there ready to view and have lunch at the club. We were stopped and told we could not visit by a guard. Quite disappointing.

If you’re in Ireland, you have to play this course. It is one of the most beautiful golf courses I have ever seen anywhere in the world. Beware though! Don’t plan on scoring your best… winds can reach 50 mph. no kidding

Unfortunately, we were unable to visit the Golf Links as the imposing gates were locked. However, we met two directors in The Speckled Door who recommended the pub’s food highly. Apparently Americans in particular love to play the course. It would be a real challenge...More

Most courses as scenic as Old Head will accommodate a request to just ride a buggy along with a golfer. I've seen fees range from €20 - €50.
