My husband and I went to both the Cliffs and Moher and Mizen Vision during our recent trip to Ireland. And while I loved both experiences, I must say that Mizen Vision was much less crowded and full of tourists EVERYWHERE! It was actually much easier to get photos at Mizen Vision because other tourists weren't walking in our shots... More

What to expect when you're at Ireland's most southwesternly point, surrounded by jagged cliffs and stunning rock formations? People. Lots of people. Cafes, gift shops, soft icecream. But don't let that stop you, it's still worth it. When you cross the Mizen Bridge, your jaw will drop!

A little strenuous climbing is called for but it is well worth it as the views are magnificent. It could be a little daunting if the weather was not good but we had the fortune to go on a beautiful sunny day.

A must see place , the walk around the light house is embedded with the powerful scenes of North Atlantic crashing into the Irish rocks . Well built and supervised place .

Mizen Head really takes your breath away - literally AND figuratively! The views are just amazing, and the force of the wind and powerful waters crashing below leave quite an impression. This is one place that I will never forget...

We travelled down last Thursday from Cork city, it was well worth the trip. About a 2 hour drive from the city Mizen Head is a must see attraction. It is the most southwesterly point on the island of Ireland complete with jaw dropping views and amazing scenery. There is an entry fee of €6 for adults, which is reasonable... More

Had a lovely trip down from Cork city and the sun was shining on arrival. Wrap up warm and be prepared, amazing photographic opportunities on a good day. Centre & cafe basic, fine for an ice cream or tea/coffee. The best part is the walk along the cliff & bridge, fresh air.
