I just came back from visiting this and it was great, very bad weather and strong winds but it is facing the Atlantic ocean ha.Nice walk to the point and the old buildings are worth a look. The coffee shop was nice and had great scones, friendly lady serving, will come back

Really worth a visit, nice scenic drive and walk, 6 euro to enter the information centre and walk was not too bad for Ireland. Definitely bring your camera for amazing photos. Long drive to get there from cork city about 2 hours. Once there you can spend about an hour or so looking around the visitor centre and walking down... More

Drove all the way to mizzen head to find that theres a visitor centre there. It has bathrooms and a café which were welcome, but they have destroyed the headland with fencing, and have blocked all access to mizzenhead unless you buy a ticket. Which is a bit rich, since theres nothing there.

The Mizen Head and drive are something not to be missed when visiting the Southern Part of the Republic Of Ireland. The drive trough West Cork to reach the Mizen Head is amazing. It's a long drive from Cork City to Mizen Head and to appreciate the beauty of West Cork a few days at least are required. There are... More

I never understood why people think the Cliffs of Moher to be a must-see. This place is at least as beautiful, not overrun by busses, the bridge and the museum are (not only) great fun for the kids and the view is like having a glance into infinity. I have been here many times, I brought many guests, and most... More

Visiting Mizen Head was the highlight of highlights in a 24-day trip to Ireland. Even though it was late season, October, the weather was beautiful and the vistas clear. We could see Fastnet Rock 8-9 miles out in the ocean. Crossing the foot bridge over the deep gorge with waves smashing into the coastal rocks was an amazing experience. The... More

On a rather murky day in West Cork I decided to take a visit out here for something to do. On the way there the weather cleared and by the time we arrived there the sun was shining. The Head is at the most South Westerly point of Ireland and very well sign posted. When you arrive there is a... More

Well worth a visit. Beautiful part of the world on a Summer's day. The scary part was crossing the bridge to get to the lighthouse. Very high above the water. Not to mention the cliffs towering above. The lighthouse was very interesting. The walks in the surrounding area were very well signposted.

A must visit if you are interested in clever engineering and spectacular views. Visited with family and had a great day out. The light and associated infrastructure is fantastic but for me the beautiful arched bridge across the gorge was the highlight. What a really clever and appropriate design. Also worth a commendation is the children's playground and the cafe.... More
