Brought the lighthouse keeper books to life. Coffee shop also worth a visit. Quite a lot of walking so be carful with foot ware . Good (although small) play park for young children.

A long drive to get here but well worth it. Nice info displays and some very friendly service from most staff who were willing to answer all questions. A bit misty when we visited so were unable to enjoy the views of Fastnet Rock but all in all an enjoyable experience.

Enjoyed the visit here for a piece of history. Great to see Ireland's coastal areas being enjoyed by overseas visitors and Irish based visitors. The Mizen Head views were amazing from thevarious walkways, viewing points and of course the Bridge itself. Enjoyed the video on lighthouses with lots of people speaking on their experiences as lighthouse keepers, wives and locals.... More

We highly recommend to visit this attraction! The views are fantastic. Lots of points to take breathtaking pictures. 95% of the places are buggy and wheelchair- friendly. Secure fencing everywhere so we felt very relaxed with 2 children (5 and 2 yo) for whom admission was free. That was nice! 6€ per adult is a fair charge and the place... More

Really great centre, wheelchair accessabile, absolutely fantastic views of cliff's and lighthouse. The old house is a really worth a visit and there is a nearby memorial to the Air India tragedy, with all the names of the victims.

It's a long drive but well worth it. If you come back along the N592 you can see the Fastnet light house

At 6 euro this was great value. You get access to a variety of viewing platforms with stunning views and which allow you to get up close and personal with some quite wild sea! The exhibits in the buildings are interesting. The cafe is excellent. Only point of improvement would be to make WiFi available in the cafe.
