Mizen Head, County Cork
Mizen Head Irish Lights Signal Station is Ireland's most Southwesterly Point in County Cork and award-winning
in the Readers Digest Top 100 "Amazing Places of Britain and Ireland".At the end of the Mizen Peninsula, the cliffs of Mizen Head rise high above the Atlantic Ocean, where the currents meet from the west and south coasts and waves from the mid-Atlantic crash into the land. In all weathers, the Mizen is spellbinding. Expect an exhilarating and satisfying visit.
Mizen Head Fog Signal Station was sanctioned in 1906 by the Irish Lights Board to combat the high loss of life and shipping on the rocks. Until 1993 the Station was manned by three Keepers; in April 1993 the Station was automated. In 1992 Mizen Tourism Co-operative Society Ltd., a community rural development initiative was formed to create a visitor attraction, "Mizen Vision", in the former Keepers' Quarters and to take a lease on the path to the Lights at the Point from the Commissioners of Irish Lights.
Mizen Head Visitor Centre is three experiences in one exciting package. The site ranges over a dynamic Visitor Centre Above Mizen Head Signal Station Below and numerous enchantments On The Way along the path and over the bridge.
When visiting the stunning scenery of Mizen Head, make sure to take a tour along Bantry Bay and Beara Peninsula - some of the most beautiful spots in Ireland.
