    Fantastic location, the views on a clear day are unsurpassed anywhere in Ireland. Has to be the top location on the wild Atlantic way. As a tourist destination it's just taking off and restaurant visitor centre being built, the tour of the lighthouse is informative and staff very friendly. Those Afraid of heights be warned steep stairs and kids under 1.2mts are not permitted to climb tower. There is accommodation but has to be booked well in advance but pricey. Family ticket 20euro and mobile coffee shop on premises. Highly recommended

    Had an awesome tour of Fanad lighthouse today. Our tour guide Hannah smiled from beginning to end and helped to make our visit a magical experience. If you're in the area, do yourself a favour and make the trip. Beautiful coastal Ireland at it's finest.
