  • Walk along the cliffs. Don't fall off. Stunning views.
  • Great bit of history and knowledge of a well maintained running light house
  • Very special place where nature can express all its power, through wind and sea. I didn't get to visit the lighthouse because of himself is not particularly interesting. But Loop Head should be visited!

  • Very nice place to walk around go and be amazed. After the end of the opening hours of the lighthouse, you feel almost as lonely at the end of the world. The overnight in the parking lot was wonderful!
