Transportation Cohb to Old Head Golf Links

Good afternoon. I am looking for transportation from the cruise ship terminal in Gohb, on June 8th 2018 to Old Head Golf Links in Kinsale. Pick up time would be around 9am. As soon as I can get off the ship. I will be a single person and have no golf clubs. I am trying to arrange something more affordable than limo services. I would need a ride back so I could be at the ship no later than 6:30.pm. I'm looking for more affordable suggestions as to who can help me? Thank you MG

I've never played the Old Head but I've fond memories of this one a short train or taxi ride from Cobh.

You don't have a huge amount of choice other than a limo service or taxi.

It's a slog to get to Kinsale by public transportation and the Old Head is trickier again, with only 4 buses a day (which drop you 10 minutes from the golf course) from Kinsale to the Old Head. So, you're looking at 30 minutes on a train, followed by an hour on another bus, followed by 15 minutes on another bus. There will be a wait of up to an hour on connection for good measure.

If you really want to do it, these are the timetables you need




In reality, you are probably best off either biting the bullet and paying for a driver or selecting one of the courses closer to Cobh, like Cork (mentioned above) or Fota Island. Both of those courses ave hosted the Irish Open, so they are worth considering.
