Fenit pier, beach and lighthouse are all close together. You get the best views of the lighthouse either from the pier or from going past the sandy path of Fenit beach and following the path along the rocks. Great for finding seashells, too!

My sister in law brought us here on a lovely sunny Sunday. Small car park near the disused railway. We walked along the beach path past the swimming platform. Saw quite a few herons feeding. A few dog walkers. Then on to a road which...More

Lovely beach walk and great views of the mountains across the bay. There's a cute, quirky café in Fenit that serves healthy food 😊

Fenit is a very pleasant place to visit on a nice day. Great views back toward Dingle, nice beaches. And a great reason to eat at West End restaurant!

Nice beach and walkway around it. Great view of the lighthouse. We were there on a Monday and there was no obvious way to the lighthouse but still feel it's worthwhile trip.

We took a smal trail from the town nearby and enjoyed the wind and ocean and being alone. Never seen so green colours like here.

Although I have not actually been to the lighthouse the surrounding area is a really great place to go for a stroll and look around. There has been a lot of development on the footpath and around the harbour and it's great to see. Just...More

You would need a bus to Fenit, not Ardfert BUT I don't think there are actually any trips to the lighthouse - just a view from the shore. As the previous person said, bus services are limited.
