Top Touring Cycling Routes to Loop Head Lighthouse
  • The entrance fee of 5 € per adult is payable at the entrance gate, but the exhibition about lighthouses in Ireland and especially the Loop Head Lighthouse with guided lighthouse climb is worth every penny. In good weather you can see beyond Dingle and Iveragh the Blasket Islands and the Aran Islands. Directly in the lighthouse area also three rooms are rented. The parking is free, overnight parking no problem. It is also easy to complete the small loop head loop as a walk without any entrance, almost once around the lighthouse area.

  • Every time I stop here I think back to my first encounter with the Loop Head. It was stormy, so stormy that I could barely stand. The wind also came in gusts, which didn't make walking or standing any easier.

    I braced myself against the wind, I stumbled, I ran backwards, raindrops lashed my face.

    Nevertheless, or perhaps precisely because of this, this lighthouse and the dramatic cliffs on which it stands became a place that made a lasting impression on me and helped shape my image of Ireland.

    By the way, the lighthouse can be visited from April to October.
    If it's not that windy, it's worth taking a walk around the lighthouse.
    Here you have a great and sometimes spectacular view of a fantastically beautiful coastal landscape and the impressive cliffs up close.
    But be careful, there is no barrier here.
