Blacksod Lighthouse has steadfastly stood shining bright over Blacksod Point for over 150 years. Although the lighthouse keepers have left and it's now fully automated, story keepers have taken over the reigns of this great lighthouse.
Guided tours will take you through the new visitor centre, bring alive lighthouse life as it was for the keepers and their families, and guide you through the rich history of Ireland’s great lighthouses and aids to navigation.
