I stayed at Wicklow Lighthouse with my family (2 kids aged 9 and 5) last week. The place is magic! What a way to get away from it all. I could have stared out of the windows for days. It's amazingly cozy too. Our kids adored it; it really sparked their imaginations. We didn't miss TV or the internet for... More

Just back from a wonderful weekend staying at Wicklow Head Lighthouse. It had been a longtime dream of my husband's to stay in a lighthouse so we booked (all the way back in November) a May bank holiday weekend with friends at Wicklow Head. Every part of the stay was magical, the service from the caretakers, Miriam and Brendan were... More

Overall I found the lighthouse stay a great experience. However it's not one that I would repeat in this particular lighthouse. We had previously stayed in Blackhead Lighthouse, Co. Antrim, and have to compare Wicklow to this. I loved the location in Wicklow, it was very private but still not too far from a town which had all the amenities... More

Just back from the most magical 2 days in the Wicklow lighthouse. Didn't have the pleasure of meeting Miriam but got a lovely warm welcome from Brendan who is a gentleman. Step in the door and the magic begins. It is just the most amazing place. Don't worry about the steps. Just stop by windows on the way up and... More

Yes, this is a great lighthouse but unlike most visitors we were treated with great hostility by Brendan. When we asked if it would be possible to visit the working lighthouse nearby he snapped at us "it is not open to the public" So, you can imagine our shock to discover the quote (from the previous week) in the visitor's...

We were so fortunate to spend two nights here at this amazing place in May. The rooms were immaculate and so beautifully restored. Miriam, Brendan and Brendan could not have been more pleasant nor kind. The entire experience was fantastic and I know I'll return another time. I would highly recommend this opportunity to everyone and anyone. The surroundings are... More

Just back from an AMAZING stay in the Wicklow Head lighthouse. Unique property, beautifully restored, full of character and with spectacular panoramic views over Dunbar head and the Irish sea. Warm welcome from the property managers- who've managed a variety of working lighthouses all around Ireland so told us about the history of this one (and the front lighthouse, which... More

My family spent a week here in July and could not have asked for a better experience. We have done something that not many families have gotten to do. Temporarily lived in an historic lighthouse! We loved it and working with the Irish Landmark Trust was a great experience!

We rented the Lighthouse for three days in June 2012 and it was one of the best vacation experiences we ever had. The lighthouse is situated about 100 m back from the cliffs. To get there you need to drive a small road which is officially blocked for public traffic so you will not meet many people up there. You... More
