Mizen Head is the most southerly point in Ireland and lies at the end of a peninsula. It features huge cliffs and incredible views. The visitor centre itself is well kept and includes a restaurant/cafe that's well priced and sells good food. You buy your tickets in the vistor centre to get to the signalling centre at the end of... More

We went to the Mizen Head Visitor Centre few days ago. The landscape is impressive with high cliffs and many wild views! Moreover, the path is easy for all kind of visitors and the timing indicated on the signs is really overestimated. Wonderful! The centre is old stile and the exibit is really... "aged". Anyway, the landscape worth the visit!

Well worth the long drive out. Fantastic views and walks. Great to get away from it all and magnificent photo opportunities. Arch walk closes a little early so make sure you are there well in time to take that in also. Staff lovely.

I wasn't too sure what to expect, we were driving out to mizen head with the kids, just to be able to say we were at the very bottom of Ireland. I thought this place would be a look out point, take a photo and get back into the car and drive home. I hadn't read any reviews or checked... More

A most see, the south westerly part of the country, some fantastic walks around the lighthouse and cliffs with smashing views and ideal for photo opportunities. Can cross the bridge into original lighthouse. Can enjoy the cafe at the end of the tour after some steep walks. Ideal picnic area with great views over the Atlantic. All in all a... More

Absolutely amazing experience, I went a few years ago but this time was better than before, they have done a lot of work in the area of the lighthouse so there are amazing viewing points on the edge of the cliffs. Its very safe for families with children as the whole thing is fenced off, there are a few steep... More

Excellent visitor centre, easily found, superbly laid out and informative, and the scenery is just spectacular. The only note of caution is that the signal station is a walk away. Even the catering is good.

Wanted to visit Mizen Head but didn't realise that you have to pay to go to the signal station. Pleasant staff and a lovely visitor centre but would have preferred a donation box instead of a charge to cross a bridge. That said, it is a lovely place and on a good day views are fantastic.
