Mizen Head Light

"Dough, Co Cork, Ireland"


Built: 1909
Automated: 1993

"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 bridge built around the turn of the century links the rock on which the light stands with the mainland."
