Magic of the Mizen Head Lighthouse, Co. Cork

Although this light was originally built and established as a fog signal station in 1909, it was not lit until 1959. It sits on the most south-westerly point in Ireland just west of Barley Cove between Brow Head and Three Castle Head. A reinforced concrete suspension bridge built around the turn of the century links the rock on which the light stands with the mainland. The views are stunning with the Fastnet Lighthouse to be seen on the horizon, and to the north the Beara Peninsula. The Mizen was automated in 1993. On March 2nd 2001, the Mizen will be offically opened to the public.
