The views of the sea cliffs are stunning and I love that you can hear the waves crashing against the rock below. It is out a bit down a narrow, twisting road that keeps the buses full of tourists away. I enjoyed Mizen Head much more than the Cliffs of Moher.

The visitor centre has a cafe, toilets and an exhibition on the area. Most importantly, though, is that it gives access to Mizen Head and the telegraph station. The views are fantastic especially from the bridge. There's a bit of steep walking but the paths and steps are in good nick. Make sure you take all of the path options... More

Fantastic scenery and a must see for anyone touring in Cork.. Try to pick a clear day that is not too breezy for a great day out.

A visit to the most SW'ly point in Ireland is a 'must' for some and the fact that it has a radio station, bridge over a dramatic gorge and wildly windswept lookout points, as well as tales of its history, definitely made it a 'must' for us! It's a long way from virtually anywhere, but driving in Ireland is not... More

We were so fortunate to be there on a sunny, clear day. It is worth the effort it takes to see this view. The bridge was totally redone in 2011.

The views from here are some of the best in the world. Loved the whole experience. Go if you haven't been. I liked all the displays. Price was fair. Try your best to go on a clear day. The cafe was nice as well.

As the name suggests the visitor's centre & old signal station buildings are located at the end of Mizen Head. The location is very picturesque with lovely views of the cliffs & coastal scenery. Tickets for the exhibition & access to the signal station can be purchased at the visitor's centre for a reasonable sum. The walk to the signal... More
