A lighthouse still in operation

In Ireland, it is common for coastal villages to have a lighthouse. This is the case of this small village of less than 2000 inhabitants (Dunmore East), which in 1825 had a 16-metre high sandstone tower built.

You can’t miss it, with its white painted lantern and bright red railing. This Doric style lighthouse is the only one of its kind in Ireland: no other lighthouse of this style on the Emerald Isle is known.

To reach it, you will have to go to the end of the harbour pier (near the fishing boats).

Although it is not possible to enter inside, you will be able to admire it from the outside. Note that it is always active and emits white and red flashes depending on the direction, at intervals of 8 seconds.
