Visit Blackhead Lighthouse

A lighthouse dating from 1902!

The Blackhead Lighthouse is believed to have first lit the seas in 1902. It has the distinction of having guided great liners, including the infamous Titanic, which sank much further in 1912 after hitting an iceberg.

The lighthouse was only automated in 1965, and deserted by the guards in 1975. Since then, Blackhead is still in operation, and offers rooms for tourists wishing to discover the charm of a night spent in a lighthouse (count 300€ for 2 nights minimum). The experience is unforgettable: discover the sunrises and sunsets and enjoy the exotic setting with the ocean in front of you! The accommodations are located in individual houses that once belonged to the lighthouse keepers.

Easily accessible, it is less than 30 minutes from Belfast, and is set on the edge of a magnificent cliff. An ideal place to discover the wilderness of Northern Ireland! Note the proximity of the Gobbins site: a path dug into the cliff! The place is next to the lighthouse and is worth the detour!
