What a great place!

Well worth a visit, outstanding views, great cafe and interesting displays. Apart from all that, the trip to Mizen Head is about as good a drive as there is!

We went to Mizen head on a fine, warm day in the middle of summer. I didn't think jackets were necessary, but I underestimated the wind and its effect on our comfort. We actually got a little cold out there in the strong, cool breeze. My recommendation would be to bring a light windbreaker even if you don't think you'll... More

Lovely informative newish museum located at the Mizen Head Signal Station located at (almost) the most southwesterly tip of Ireland. This was not here when I ventured out to the far reaches of Ireland in the 90's. A new Mizen Bridge crosses a watery chasm before you get to the actual Signal Station-radio hut where Marconi transmitted first Trans Atlantic... More

You start of at the museum area and for €6 it is well worth it. The museum is not overly impressive.....but the walk...breathtaking. The day was sunny so the views were all the more stunning,crossing the bridge you see first hand the force of nature. The walk to the Coast Guard station is really spectacular and you can stop and...

This is an experience that you will never forget a walk along the cliffs at Mizen Head at the bottom of Ireland. You would need to be pretty fit and I would be careful taking small kids down to the Coast Guard Station they will enjoy it but you will be bringing them back piggy back style.The whole hike takes...

The bridge is amazing and the views spectacular. The steep walkways set into the cliffs make for good exercise, while feeling safe, yet adventurous. Bring €6 to get to the southernmost point to feel the accomplishment of making it to Mizen Head.

May be a little less known, but the history of this location is unreal. Nearby, you will find a bay with a beautiful sand beach. The views are incredible, the design and pathways are well done. Lots of great things to see on the south-most tip of Ireland.

Amazing scenery, well worth the walk, you are warned of the estimated length of time it takes to get around, but that must be based on babies crawling! Absolutely stunning place to visit, great views, and abit of history too!

Absolutely must see place in Ireland if you do not have fear of heights. Go there by dry and to windy day with good visibility. Be prepare for long walk. Very good organized and very safe place.

I was a little concerned with our two year old being able to complete this visit to Mizen Head, but I was somewhat surprised when he visited all the different sections ahead of us. And there are quite a few steps but the ramps are also a godsend. I would visit again, as I think they must be some views... More
