County Cork is home to one of the world’s most spectacular golf courses – the Old Head of Kinsale Golf Links, a perfect illustration of the area’s rugged natural beauty. County Cork Golf Club (Little Island) designed by Augusta National architect Alistair McKenzie is located within a short drive of the city, as is Fota Island – home to the European Tour Irish Open in 2001 and 2002.
The Silver Springs Hotel is ideally located en route to the golf courses and within five minutes of Cork City Centre - ideal for shopping trips, fine restaurants and nightlife.
Cork is a vibrant and welcoming city. Visitors can enjoy the Guinness Jazz festival each year in October, in addition to championship Gaelic Football and Hurling throughout the summer months.
Other attractions include the famed Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle which it is said gives anyone who kisses it the “gift of the gab”.
