A black lighthouse (one of only two in Ireland) it is only accessible by boat. This makes a trip to Ballycotton Lighthouse something very special.
Look forward to an exhilarating journey from the harbour to the island. Walk the original light-keepers path to the island’s summit. You may meet some of the resident goats. See the unspoilt flora and fauna. And, of course, explore the lighthouse and enjoy stunning views from the bright red lantern balcony.
Trips are arranged by Ballycotton Sea Adventures. All their guides are local and will tell you the factual history of the lighthouse and picturesque Ballycotton as well as sharing some of the more fanciful local myths and legends. Ballycotten Lighthouse is proudly part of Ireland’s Ancient East.
