The visitor centre has been open to the public since 1994. The lightkeepers houses have been converted to include an audio visual room, a map and archive room, the Fastnet room, the underwater room, the bird and sea watch room and the storm room. The Keeper's kitchen and one bedroom have been retained.

For many years the gates at the entrance to this bridge were kept locked and for thousands of people, this was as near to the Lighthouse as they could get.

Now, thanks to the local community's involvement people can look back at the Mizen Bridge from the Lighthouse side.

But that's only the beginning of the story. The rest of it lies behind the cameraman. Come see for yourself and our guides will tell you much, much more.

The Mizen Bridge was totally reconstructed in 2010 and additional pathways and lookout platforms have been added.

New images will be added here soon.

Mizen Head Visitor Centre. Always a new experience.
