The scenery is simply awesome ! It doesn't really matter what the weather does because the rocks remain the same but on a clear day the views out to Fastnet are stunning . It's worth walking down to the Sea Bridge, seals tend to hang about there and under the Mizen Bridge. The only drawback to walking down to the... More

The Mizen Head Centre makes for a super visit for all age groups. There is very well presented information on the geography and history of the entire region. The walk ways provide access to stunning sea and cliff views. The entrance fee is modest and well worth it. There is also a nice café and gift shop on the site.

This is well worth the stop. interesting history, amazing views, great photo opportunities. Quite a hike up and down all of the different "trails" but well worth it.

We rented a car out of Cork and drove for about 2.5h. Once you exit the highway the road is extreme pretty with all the green grass and loads of sheeps and cows. Once already in Goleen we stopped to check out a small surfers beach, so empty and natural very nice surprise ..we went further till Mizen Head. The... More

Mizen head is a beautiful spot on the Wild Atlantic Coastal Road that takes a while to get to, but pays off with beautiful scenery and a great walking/hiking experience.

Decided to hit Mizen on a typical July 'summer's' day- dull, possible rain- maybe a few sunny spells! As other reviewers have reported, great views of the Atlantic and Fastnet can be seen in the distance. However, the more immediate views of the cliffs and the ranging peninsulas give equally spectacular photo-opportunity,wow! My young teens loved the walk to the... More

A mixture of beautiful scenery and early 20th century history of telecommunications makes this a great half-day trip.

A must do when visiting West Cork ...fabulous location and scenery and great history with the signal station sitting on the rocky outcrop high above the Atlantic waves. Nice drive from Goleen to get there, choice of two routes, took the scenic going and quicker on the way back...large car park when you get there. Entrance fee of six Euro... More
