  • We had a lovely family day out here. We brought a picnic and sat and watched the sea. Afterward we did a tour of the lighthouse. Its €3 to walk around the grounds and €10 for the tour and to go up to the light. They will do a very good group rate if you ask. The tour was very informative and the guide was fantastic. My young nephew start asking questions about sharks which had nothing to do with the lighthouse however the guide happy chatted with my nephew about sharks. It was great going up the tower. Would not recommend to anyone with a fear of heights or small places.
  • Great interesting tour of lighthouse. We had great guide who answered all the questions. Good parking good views. Great photo location. Visitor centre nearby with coffee shop. Also nearby pub for drink and food and relaxing.
