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.
Yes we all got back safely and what a thrill for us to be in Portrush and watch Rory win the U.S. Open. And to add to the thrill we had Darren Clarke tee off behind us the next day at Royal Portrush...(we let him play through)
Everyone totally enjoyed the trip of a lifetime. Thank you to you and Irish Tourism .com for making everything so easy.
All the hotels and courses were ready and welcomed us, the Irish hospitality is second to none and our bus and bus driver Jim were first class. Jim became part of our group.
I would recommend you to anyone going on a golf trip to Ireland. Should we ever do it again (and I hope we will) we will certainly use Irish Tourism.com.
