This place is amazing. If you are lucky enough to have good weather, you get the most amazing views of the sea and cliffs. We did all the walks, which some may find tiring, but my husband isn't a good walker and coped fine. Even the pedestrian bridge linking the cliffs wasn't too scary. I'm glad we did all the... More

This is worth the trip. Most beautiful cliff/sea views. take the time to climb the steps to the top viewing platform. You wont regret it. Bring your camera. I was charmed by the musicians along the way. Especially the woman playing a full size harp.

Mizen Head Visitor Centre is located at the end of the homonymous peninsula and its main attraction is a recently guid pedestrian bridge installed between two cliffs that allows the visitors to reach the far head and...

We came with 3 generations and... More

We had such a fantastic family day out here. It's a bit of a drive but so worth it. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, especially on the beautiful sunny day we were there and there was loads for the kids to see and do. The gift shop was also a big hit because they had lots of things for less... More

If you have been before its well worth another visit as the new paths, bridge and viewing platforms have dramatically improved it. I've visted this places many times over the years but was really impressed with the new routes that take you right down to the sea, as well as much cleared views across to Three Castles to the north....
