We really enjoyed our visit to mizen. The views are spectacular and the centre is very interesting. I was glad to see they have upgraded paths and bridge which makes it suitable for buggies. We ate in the restaurants after and were very pleased with our food, lovely friendly staff too.

Visiting this centre is a must if you're in for a breath taking views of the mountains and cliffs. The only problem for this tour if you have a toddler who are timid to walk and person's who hate strong winds but very promising sight i must say.

Why? - The whole Mizen Head experience has been modernised and upgraded by the state with a new bridge and vantage points, and has to be one of the most exciting and interesting places to visit in Ireland - and that is not an exaggeration. This is a real treat, and we would recommend the cafe in the visitor centre... More

What a lovely place. I don't like heights but I walked to the top to see the stunning views. Even the drive to get there was brilliant. The views are spectacular. There are also some lovely beaches on the route. There is a place to eat where you can sit inside or outside. Plenty of parking. Need strong legs on... More

Words can not describe how stunning this place is!! if you have a bucklet list - walking through Mizen head should be near the top of it!! we even managed to catch a glimpse of a seal on the walk through!

Worth going to. Spectacular views of Ireland's most southwest point. The ocean crashing into the rocks provides amazing drama. The seafood chowder at the cafeteria is excellent also. Expect to spend 1.5-2 hours there.

Visited the Mizen Head centre during the recent good weather and it was fantastic. It's a long way out but a nice journey with great scenery - especially on the coast road which has narrow roads but some incredible views. Great views at Mizen Head and excellent displays. Give yourself time to see everything and enjoy the history and nature... More
