  • It's only open very seldom.... but we got to go up. 😊 It's not for the very unfit (the climb) but great views when you get there. It is the only inland lighthouse in Ireland and one of very few in the world. The views from the bottom of the spire are nearly as good, so go even if you aren't able to get up to the top. Free entry.
  • A must see. Spectacular view from the top
  • Great place for family with kids. Nice quiet and peacful
  • Some amount of steps but the view is worth it! It's kept open by volunteers from what I gathered so fair play to all involved!
  • Best place to chill out of a summer's day the perfect place for a family day out too! The only place in Ireland with an inland lighthouse. When the tower is open to the public, you can see five counties from the spectacular view up top! Playground facilities for children too.
