Mizen Head, County Cork, Ireland

Established in 1909 the Mizen Head Fog Signal Station is not a lighthouse in the true sense of the word, but it is well worth a visit as it sits in a spectacular location and the visitors center is very well done. It is located in County Cork on Coghnane Island, joined to the mainland by a suspension footbridge. It is the most Southwesterly point in Ireland. The photos were taken when I visited in 2001. Thanks to Peter from Pete's Irish Lighthouses for jogging my memory about this one.
