“Hopefully the weather will be good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

When we started our trip to Mizen Head the weather was partly cloudy and we enjoyed the fantastic views of the beaches and mountain. By the time we got to the top the weather had deteriorated so much we thought we were driving in the clouds. We enjoyed the museum but will have to return to take a nice hike. We are putting it on our return to list.

“This place should be more famous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The irony of this tourist attraction is it's location. It is what makes it so scenic, yet it is the small roads and distances that make it less visited that it should be.

Firstly the car park is massive. There is enough room to swing a bus.
Because of the low visitor numbers on the day I was there at least it was a pleasure to look around, there was no feeling of being "pushed along" and there was no inhaling you breath to sqeeze past screaming children.

A good attraction overall, the only improvement would be reducing the prices of the gift shop. Maybe they could actually increase the entrance price to fund that. It was only 6 euro to get in.

“Breathtaking scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

A gem of a place to travel to with plenty of walking to be done! Bring your hiking boots and camera of course :-) The cafe is open for a spot of lunch and you can buy gifts in the Gift shop. Great experience had by all.

“Brilliant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

It was only €6 in and you get serious bang for your buck. The views are incredible and we were lucky as we were there on a glorious and calm day.
