Walking to Mizen Head

Mizen Head

The lighthouse at Mizen Head in West Cork is a fairly big tourist attraction in the area, and no wonder. From the visitor center you descend by a sloping path to a narrow bridge between two high cliffs with the sea lashing underneath. The lighthouse itself is nestled at the end of the headland, clinging to the rocks. The people who built it must have awfully brave souls.

This is part of the path and the lighthouse buildings are in the background. It’s well guarded by a bright red railing so there’s little risk of falling off a cliff unless you really have a death wish. Lovely area. Definitely going there again!
