Blackrock Lighthouse, Co. Mayo

Blackrock is one of the most remote and desolate lighthouse stations on the Irish coast. The station is perched 230 feet above sea level on a pinnacle of almost barren rock, 11 miles out into the Atlantic from Blacksod. It is exposed to winds gusting up to 120 knots. Blackrock was built in 1864, and converted to an unwatched semi-automatic acetylene gas-powered lighthouse in 1974.
