Mizen head peninsula is the south-westerly point of Ireland. It will be the first and last sight of Europe seen by navigators crossing the North Atlantic Ocean. Try to walk for at least 15 minutes to the bridge for the finest beautiful photo shot of the peninsula. The nice view needs me to take pictures in different angles especially when... More

Great day out when weather not so great for the beach. Amazing views and lovely watching waves crash up on the rocks. Must see if in the area. Great childhood memories

Great place to visit on a Sunny day, especially of the sea is rough too. As the waves bash against the rocks. Ample parking available, playground and cafe/restaurant.

The most south western point of Ireland. This beats the Cliffs of Moher. A must for any nature lover.

We drove for 45 minutes to get to Mizen Head only to find the visitor centre closed. Not only that but there's no way of getting to the good view except through the centre. OK it was after 6pm, but this is August, holiday season, it was light til 9. There was no indication of opening times that I could... More

I was very disappointing with this. For the money you have to say it is really not worth it. Infact that all it seems to be - a way to get some money from tourists. In August 2015 it was 19Euros for a family of four, two adults and two small children. I assume this cost is to pay for... More

This place was interesting and had amazing views. Long walk with lots of steps and steep hills, but worth it if you are up for it. Barley Cove beach was nice, and this makes for a good stop in Goleen.

Wow - what amazing scenery. The whole place is very well done with nice walking paths including signs that tell you how long it will take to make the round trip to various viewing points. Some of the trips up and down are quite steep. The bridge is fantastic with views of the incredible coastline and amazing geology, and the... More

The cafe there is terrible so pack a picnic. The walk is Georgia's and there are several pathways to explore. The signage is not great but it means there are more opportunities to explore I suppose. Worth a visit but I'm not sure it's worth the drive.
