Mizen Head is Ireland’s most Southwesterly Point, located on the Cork’s southwest coast.

The tip of the peninsula is almost cut off from the mainland by a deep chasm, which is spanned by a bridge giving access to an old signal station, a weather station, and a lighthouse.

The signal station is now a museum with displays relating to the site’s strategic significance for transatlantic shipping and communications, including Guglielmo Marconi’s work in nearby Crookhaven.

The beautiful coastline provides stunning views, while the coastal waters play host to seals, numerous seabirds, dolphins, and whales.
