Mizen Head

September 2, 2011

Last Monday was a really beautiful early Autumn day.  I took a few hours do to a walk around Mizen Head.  Its the most south-westerly corner of Ireland, and a place famous to anyone who listens to weather forecasts.  Its not often it looks so sunny and calm.

Sea Cave

Bridge and Lighthouse

Looking down from the bridge...uh oh

Its a long way down

Its a lighthouse without a light - it used to sit on top of the roof. The really important lighthouse (Fastnet) is a few km offshore.

View north towards Sheeps Head and the Beara Peninsula.

I’ve always loved towerhouses – one day maybe I’ll own one and restore it (if I win the lottery I suppose). Here is a particularly lovely one on the road along the north-west side of Mizen.


The living room ceiling - needs a bit of paint


I also quite like beaches – a particularly fine one here just east of Mizen.
