Mizen Head Signal Station
Mizen Head (Irish: Carn Uí Néid), at the western extremity of the peninsula formerly known as the Ivagha Peninsula or Uíbh Eachach, is the south-westernmost point of Ireland, is one of the extreme points of the island of Ireland. It lies in west County Cork, Ireland, and is a tourist attraction. Located on the promontory are an old signalling station, a weather station, and a lighthouse. The signalling station, now a museum, is open to visitors. The "99 steps" are a long series of steps on the pathway across to the rocky outcrop upon which the station was built. The villages of Ballydehob, Goleen, and Schull are located on the peninsula.
Contrary to popular belief, Mizen Head is not the most southerly point on the mainland of Ireland. Nearby Brow Head holds that title. Nevetheless, geography books have long measured the length of Ireland "from Fair Head to Mizen Head" or "from Malin Head to Mizen Head.
Hi Tony, The trip you helped us plan was fantastic! The only room we really didn't like was at the Royal Dublin, we made an upgrade ourselves, but it was't anything great. The room at Faithleg was incredible, the castle was the same or better. The bed and breakfast that you chose were great, with great hosts! I found the driving a little tense but I got used to it. We had the time of our lives. We loved Ireland and the people. I will highly recommend your service to anyone I know that is traveling to Ireland. Thank you so much.
Oh yea, the golf courses were all fine to. With Regards,
