A lot of people think that this is Ireland's most southerly point, it's not, Brow Head is mainland Ireland's, where as Mizen, is the most South Westerly. Weather reports will always say "from Malin Head to Mizen Head" so it's confusing. I been to Malin, so I wanted to go here, but unfortunately the weather was not kind. We parked... More

First time down to Mizen, Fab place on a beautiful sunny day, Amazed at the walkways and how safe it was. Great views of cliffs and sea. Light house and its history very interesting.. Lovely tearoom with reasonable priced refreshments. Souvenirs shop if you into those things. A must do if you in the area

Coming from the very north of Ireland, my boyfriend decided he would take me to the very south of Ireland. We arrived on a wet and blowy Sunday afternoon, however the weather didn't dampen our spirit. We were greeted on entry by a very friendly lady who gave us some information and we paid for our tickets. There's a number... More

Beautiful gem nested in west cork. This place was absolutely amazing to see. The water was so blue and it was so calm with no wind. It was not as cold as we had anticipated either. The place was very well laid out with very even tarmac footpaths all around Mizen head. Definitely must see this place. The original watch... More

One of the most beautiful places that I've ever seen, with a amazing view, better option is visit during the summer.

Mizen Head is the one of my favourite place to visit in Ireland. I was there several times and every time landscapes are breathtaking for me. If my feedback will be given for place to visit, it will be definitely 5 star. But my visit in café was horrible! I was with my family (5 people with me). Lady who... More

In December Mizen Head Heritage Centre is open till 11. That's very late for someone who comes from far away like we came from Dublin the day before and could only start our trip that late. 9 am would probably make no harm... Beside that - amazing place, high tides fighting with the cliffs, lighthouse and one a truly unique... More
