Baily Lighthouse, Co. Dublin

Baily Lighthouse began as a small cottage-type coal burning lighthouse on Howth Head, established in 1667. It was replaced by a tower in 1790. Due to the light often being obscured by fog and low cloud it was decided to re-position the lighthouse lower down on the headland, at Little Baily. This new granite tower was established in 1814 where it still stands today. Baily Lighthouse was the last lighthouse to be converted to automatic operation and in 1997 the Lighthouse Keepers were withdrawn.
