Mizen Head is Ireland's Most Southwesterly Point and is located in Cork County, Ireland. The brochure indicates it's a great place to visit in any weather. But that wasn't particularlly true on the day we visited as the winds were gale force and rain was intermitent. There is an arched bridge, cliff paths to walk, keepers quarters and if you're lucky you might at certain times of the year see whales, seals and seabirds. There are sparkling clean restrooms, a nice gift shop and a restaurant that serves lunch, snacks, cakes and beverages at very reasonable prices. Tickets range in price and we found that Ireland, unlike many other countries, offers a Senior discount in many places.
If you plan to visit Mizen Head, do it on a sunny day in summer. We did it the middle of April and the weather was pretty bad on the west coast in most places with gale force winds and driving rain.
