Make summer 2023 a lighthouse summer!

With 19 Great Lighthouses of Ireland sites/attractions spread across the whole island of Ireland, visitors have their pick of beautiful properties to overnight in, historic towers to explore and even breath-taking boat tours to enjoy. Summer 2023 is the perfect time to discover more about the lighthouses’ history, to appreciate the spectacular natural world around them, to understand the modern technology at work in them today, and of course, to meet the people who are passionate about these incredible places.

Explore our coastal environment, be a #CoastalKeeper

As lightkeepers kept a good light for mariners over the centuries, Great Lighthouses of Ireland and Irish Lights firmly believe that now it’s our turn to tend to our coastal environment and be true guardians for it as we travel, explore and enjoy it.

Raising funds for the RNLI and the invaluable work they do for coastal communities is just one way that ADT is acting as a #CoastalKeeper – an advocate for our lighthouses, coastal environment and community.

As we welcome visitors to our lighthouse sites/attractions over the summer, we encourage everyone to embrace the stunning beauty of the lighthouses and explore the vibrant nearby villages, towns and communities brimming with local businesses and attractions too.

With sustainability and caring for nature in mind, we encourage visitors to think about the little steps we can make to respect our planet; whether that’s hopping on a bike, bringing a reusable coffee cup, taking litter home with you or leaving wildflowers untouched – there are so many ways to explore these areas with a #CoastalKeeper mindset.
