Lots of walking but so worth it! Absolutely spectacular views, we were there on a beautiful day and just bowled over by it! Loads to see. We got there early so it wasn't too crowded which I highly recommend as we got to take our time and lots of photos!!

After a 2,5 hour drive, some of which along beautiful country roads, on a brilliantly sunny day - very non-Irish :-) -, arrived at Mizen Head around lunchtime and did not know where to look first. Decided to start with the walk, read the information, take in the views and have my breath taken away by the whole experience: Absolutely... More

Lots and lots of walking, but it is well worth it. It is a photographer's dream. Sights like this are rare and everyone who has the opportunity should go!

Well.... after years of hearing so much about it we decided to take a road trip to mizen head. What a spot. The day was beautiful so we were lucky. The views are spectacular. We took the walk and even though the signs say that some parts are a '10minute' walk it only took 5. Which we were delighted with... More

This visitor centre and area is well worth the drive, so make sure you make a detour to it. The scenery and cliffs are incredible. The information points were interesting and well laid out. There is a good amount of information there, and at enough levels to keep kids and adults interested. I was there on a really windy day,... More

I had seen many pictures of this place before going there. It is simply magnificent. Although it was raining during our visit it was very nice. It is must see if you travel southwest. There are also nice beaches in the area,

A beautiful area with outstanding views of the cliffs of Mizen head. This site is not well known to most but is a definite stop on any tourist itinerary. The drive down from Kenmare along the coastal roads was beautiful in itself passing along small coastal villages and inlets and very inviting sandy beaches. Once at Mizen head, you enter... More

This is an amazing place at the most southwestern point in Ireland. We were blessed by a visit that began with light rain and cleared off into the most fabulous views. I can't imagine a trip to Ireland without coming here. Some of the walking trails are steep and challenging, (I really appreciated having my hiking poles...) but if you... More

Mizen head is one of those hidden treasures that are must see. The natural beauty of the place is just amazing. Even the approx 20km road on the peninsula that drives there is spectacular with fishing villages, unbelievably blue sea and such beaches that you think are only to be found in the Mediterranean!Entrance fee is very cheap (6E/adult), cafe...
