Mizen Tourism Cooperative Society Ltd.
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.
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.

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.
