Mizen Head

The Mizen Peninsula, at Ireland’s most south-westerly point, is renowned for the beauty of its rugged landscape and ancient heritage. A tour of the Mizen Ring gives you the chance to immerse yourself in the various strands that make the Mizen unique – from geology, flora, birds and fauna to the influence of man and his history on the landscape.
Spend some time in beautiful Crookhaven, stroll along the long golden beaches of Barleycove and stop by the pretty harbour to watch colourful boats come and go. Visit Mizen Head and discover how the Mizen Head Signal Station was built to save lives off the treacherous rocks at Ireland’s most south westerly point. Drop by the visitor centre at Mizen Head and learn about the navigational aids simulator, the geology of the Mizen Head area and the Fastnet Rescue Tide Clock.
