Fantastic vista over the sea

This is a must on the wild atlantic way, the most south-westerly point in Ireland. The cliffs are just beautiful!

If you want a lovely experience on the Wild Atlantic Way, then Mizen Head is well worth a visit. The visitors centre is small but has lots of information.

The views from Mizen Head are amazing. Waves as big as houses crashing into the cliffs. Give yourself about two hours and stroll around the visitor centre and read up on some of the history of the area.

Amazing attraction, incredible coastline & scenery and views. Found the visitor centre well laid out and interesting. Especially like the info on Fastnet Lighthouse. The cafe at the centre served great food. Well worth the drive.
