         COVID protocols

  • We have hand sanitising stations at the front door.
  • Someone will welcome you and ask you to wear a mask or face covering inside all the buildings (it is BYOM so don’t forget to bring yours).
  • There will be strict social distancing in the queue so we might ask you to wait a few minutes before you can come in. But that depends on how busy we are.
  • At weekends after 1pm is usually the busiest time, so why not try the morning?
  • We will be open daily from 10.30am-5pm in September and October
  • We maintain a rigorous cleaning programme.

    Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Discover Mizen

Mizen Head is Ireland's most Southwesterly Point and a Signature Discovery Point on the Wild Atlantic Way

Don’t miss this unforgettable experience.

At the end of the Mizen Peninsula, the cliffs of Mizen Head rise high above the Atlantic Ocean, where the currents meet from the west and south coasts and waves from the mid-Atlantic crash into the land.

  • Signature Key Discovery Point on the Wild Atlantic Way. 
  • Dare to cross the iconic Bridge high above the gorge; watch for seals and their pups in the swell below.
  • Experience the solitude of the keepers’ lives and the elemental power of the restless Atlantic where the ocean currents swirl.
  • Laugh with exhilaration into the fresh salt-laden sea air. Be inspired by the majesty (pull) of the endless seascape and the breath-taking views.
  • Scan the ocean for whales and dolphins.  In wind, rain and gale as well as hot summer sun, the Mizen is exciting. In fog and mist, it is mysterious – a journey of discovery for the senses.
  • Interpretation and displays demonstrate many different topics, completing your experience.  Come and find your Mizen!
  • New Navigational Aids Simulator takes you on a voyage in the ocean round the Mizen

 In all weathers, the Mizen is spellbinding. Expect an exhilarating and  satisfying visit.

Please note that access across the Bridge may be restricted during dangerous weather conditions for safety reasons..

A visit will take 1-2 hours or as long as you like.

About Mizen

The Committee of Management of Mizen Tourism Co-operative Society Ltd. are grateful to all the people involved in funding the development of Mizen Head Visitor Centre  over the last 28 years. Shares are available at €35; donations and sponsorships are welcome.  Write to info@mizenhead.ie for a share form

Mizen Head Fog Signal Station was sanctioned in 1906 by the Irish Lights Board to combat the high loss of life and shipping on the rocks. Until 1993 the Station was manned by three Keepers; in April 1993 the Station was automated. In 1992 Mizen Tourism Co-operative Society Ltd., a community rural development initiative, was formed to create Mizen Head Visitor Centre, ‘Mizen Vision’, in the former Keepers’ Quarters and to take a lease on the path to the Lights at the Point from the Commissioners of Irish Lights.
