Loop Head Lighthouse, Visitor Attraction

"Situated at the tip of the Loophead Peninsula where the Shannon River meets the Atlantic Ocean this iconic lighthouse tower is now open to the public. For a small fee the visitor can take a guided tour up the tower and can go out onto the balcony at the very top. From this balcony one can see as far south as the Blasket Islands in Kerry and as for north as the Twelve Bens in Galway -- a remarkable and unforgettable vista. Loophead Lighthouse will be open to the public from Saturday May 19th 2012 to early September during the hours of 10.00am -- 5:30pm daily. Visitors have the opportunity to be guided to the top of the lighthouse and take in the magnificant views from the balcony. An informative, interactive exhibition also provides a history of the Lighthouse and allows the visitor to learn how the operation of this Lighthouse has progressed through the years. Admission: €5 per person with under 12s free." Posted on Youtube on the 16th of July 2012 by shannonimages.
