5 Lighthouses to Visit in Ireland

Ireland has many lighthouses which are available for viewing along the beautiful coastline. We would certainly recommend taking a trip out to one of these spectacular lighthouses!

Fanad Head Lighthouse, County Donegal

Fanad Head Lighthouse, one of the worlds most beautiful lighthouses is located within the Donegal Gaeltacht on the Fanad peninsula. It lies on the north coast of County Donegal between Lough Swilly and Mulroy Bay.

Last year we installed a pod on its site at Fanad Lighthouse. The challenge for Intupod was to replace the existing oil tank on the site which was used to fuel the helicopter based at the lighthouse with a replica space which could be used create a world class tourism space for up to 50 visitors.

Loop Head Lighthouse, County Clare

Loop Head Lighthouse overlooks the Atlantic Ocean in west Clare as it has done for over 3409 years. The lighthouse station is the major landmark on the northern shore of the Shannon River. Its cliff top position affords 90m high views of the sea down to Kerry Head and Dingle across the Shannon and up the Clare coast and to the Cliffs of Moher in the north.

Wicklow Head, County Wicklow

Wicklow Head Lighthouse was built in 1781 and has beautiful views of the Irish Sea. The landscape and scenery surrounding the lighthouse provide a perfect backdrop for a unique and memorable experience.

Galley Head Lighthouse, County Cork

The Galley Head Lighthouse was built in 1875 is perched on cliffs 133 ft above the sea. It is located near Rosscarbery, Co. Cork in the south west of Ireland, and is a discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way with beautiful views from every angle.

Valentia Island, County Kerry 

Built on the site of a 17th century fort, Valentia Island Lighthouse is located on Cromwell Point. The lighthouse on the beautiful Valentia Island looks out across some of the most spectacular sights along the Wild Atlantic Way.
