The Inisheer Lighthouse is a lighthouse on Inisheer Island. Easy to recognize with its black and white horizontal stripes, it is still in operation and guides approaching boats every day. A lighthouse to be seen up close!
The Inisheer lighthouse has existed since the 19th century and has recently been renovated to be automated. The lighthouse is magnificent and cannot be visited from the inside, but its approach is worth the detour.

A spectacular view that will remind you of Inisheer’s insular character! Moreover, the locals like to rest here for a little fishing. It is indeed possible to cast your line there, while enjoying the calm and the 100% wild environment of the island!
