  • The drive to the lighthouse and the views of the coast are absolutely breathtaking. Very happy to have found this gem not too far from Portsalon.

  • Gorgeous view! Worth the drive but be sure to check open hours before you go.
  • The scenery is beautiful and the drive there was nearly my favourite part. There isn't much to do there other than look at the scenery, there are no public toilets other than 2 portaloos, everything is cordoned off so no exploring can be done. Wear comfy shoes as the stairs/ladder to get to the top of the lighthouse are very steep! The guys running the tea van was very reasonably priced.
  • A beautiful spot with great scenery. €20 Euro for the tour for a family of 4 was decent value. Great view from the top of the lighthouse.
  • Incredible views and a gorgeous lighthouse. Worth the crazy drive.
  • Lovely staff very friendly and helpful worth a visit cheers
