Although the lighthouse is not accessible to visitors, nothing prevents you from approaching it and going around it! It overlooks the bay and offers a rather nice view of the ocean!
The lighthouse is octagonal in shape and extends over 5 floors. Always in activity, it has been automated to avoid the presence of a possible keeper, and therefore lights up every night to guide the approaching boats.
This lighthouse, although atypical, has a certain charm due to its location lost in the middle of the wilderness, close to the ocean. A nice place, but let’s be clear: the Wicklow Head Lighthouse is not really the most beautiful lighthouse in Ireland.
