Come for the View, Love the Experience

A view of forever and a fascinating look into the past. The drama of Ireland’s rugged West Coast shoreline and the soft beauty of Co. Clare’s postcard-pretty countryside. A trip to Loop Head Lighthouse is a visit of contrasts, centered around this beacon of hope that has perched majestically on the scenic headland of Loop Head peninsula for hundreds of years, looking down on the fury of the Atlantic Ocean 90 meters below. Here a world of beautiful seabirds, seals and dolphins meets breathtaking views as far as Dingle and Connemara. While the cost, characterful Light Keeper’s House offers a romantic stay with a difference.
