Great Lighthouses of Ireland

For hundreds of years lighthouses have helped seafarers find their way.  Now they shine their light on a truly unique experience around the stunning coastline of Ireland.

Great Lighthouses of Ireland, is a new all-island tourism initiative, developed by the Commissioners of Irish Lights, the General Lighthouse Authority for the island of Ireland.

Featuring twelve lighthouses in breathtaking coastal locations, Great Lighthouses of Ireland offers visitors from home and abroad the chance to visit or stay in a lighthouse, to find out about their history, to appreciate the spectacular natural world around them, to discover the technology at work in lighthouses today and to meet the people who are passionate about these unique places.

The Great Lighthouses of Ireland project is supported by the European Union’s INTERREG IVA cross-border Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
