I have visited this attraction on many occasions and each time I visit I bring people with me that have never experienced the Centre or the vistas before. What amazes them, is I am as excited as they are at seeing the wonders of the Wild Atlantic way from the Mizen as they are for the first time. The views... More

Can not say enough wonderful things about this place. The one warning is it is NOT for those people who can not climb many many stairs and steep hills.

The lady I met at the very tip of the peninsular was waving out to sea; she said she was sending a message to her family in America. Even on a clear day you cannot quite see that far but the idea is apt as Mizen Head played quite a big part in Marconi's wireless communication revolution. As befits the... More

This is a must do experience when visiting Cork and the Wild Atlantic Way. The views are gorgeous. The bridge crossing is very special with some epic views. Highly recommend

Drove out on the windy roads to get to large parking area, cafe and gift shop good. Didn't pay to go out onto bridge, could see the coast well enough from car park!

Although Beara and Ring of Kerry are the more popular options, Mizen Head was amazing. The road that goes in is very narrow. We were not used to the roads and driving on the opposite side of the road. The observation deck gives views that are stunning. As per Ireland weather, it was very cloudy and very sunny. (If you...

It's a Great Place for Sunny & Non-Windy day. It has some great views and view points. One need to walk down the path to reach the bridge and cross bridge to reach the final view point. There are some old equipments and cabins that were used few decades ago. It is not a difficult path to walk down and... More

We paid on a calm sunny day over the Easter holidays and truly enjoyed the experience. Our 1 year old daughter was in her buggy which was challenging to push up and down the footpaths but we got to see everything except the sea arch which is at the bottom of a few hundred steps. The views from the end... More

Visited mizon head today and was amazed by the beauty of this place. We got a fantastic sunny day for our visit so it's made the trip all the more worthwhile. It's buggy friendly so that's always a plus! Although we did pick a stunning day to visit, I'm sure even in worse weather it would still be incredibly beautiful... More
