We were lucky enough to visit on a clear, sunny day and the views of the Atlantic coastline were spectacular. The walkways are quite steep at times but are well laid out and are very manageable. We also got some good sightings of Minke Whales. This is a beautiful spot - well worth a visit. The nearby Barley Cove beach... More

A little bit overpriced as its mainly just a walk rather than an interactive tour. The views from the Mizen Bridge looking across to Dunlough Bay are incredible and on a sunny day there's no better place to be in Ireland than being at the Mizen Head signal station.

This is a very intriguing stop at the most Southerly point of Ireland..Good for children.High above the seemingly always wild Atlantic.Well paved walkways.Its a bit out of the way-but a diversion worthwhile.There is some good information about the weather station and the Fastnet Rock-which is about 11 kmn offshore

Beautiful drive to reach the most southerly point of Ireland. It is worth seeing but as other reviewers have said, best to do in good, clear weather. We did not really visit the centre or cafe as we had taken a picnic so can't complain. It was a little frustrating to have to pay to get right to the tip... More

I could take or leave the man-made attractions.....but the view, they were magnificent. Absolutely no point going on a terrible day, unless you like getting soaking wet in a gale straight off the Atlantic, but on a lovely day, the views are marvellous all the way from your feet right up the west coast - I think we were looking...

Mizen Head is the most south-westerly point of Ireland and is reached by narrow, winding roads. You have to pay a fee to get to the end of the Head. There is a nice cafe with good cake & coffee, a rather naff exhibition and lots of paved paths to wander along and look at the view. There is also... More

A great place to visit - an interesting set up right on Mizen Head with the old Marconi station set up as a museum. Watch out for the sleeping lighthouse keeper! Well laid out with several fantastic viewpoints, including one of the Fastnet Rock.

We really enjoyed the walk out to the signal station. The views from the various lookout points are incredible. Plan to spend at least a couple of hours here so that you have time to do all the trails as they all lead to spectacular coastal views.

When I saw photos of this place I knew we had to visit, but it was such a long drive out there I thought that if the weather wasn't good I'd skip it. We lucked out and had the clearest, bluest day Ireland can see and it was magnificent. A highlight of a two week trip. I would highly recommend... More

Amazing views of birds, the sea and rock formations and this former radio station. Interesting history with well planned walks to the most scenic viewpoints. As it is on a cliff the walks are up steps or inclines but are manageable to most if you take your time. Very windy you may be lucky to see dolphins, whales or seals... More
