The enchanting Loop Head Lighthouse is located at the tip of the Loop Head Peninsula which is the furthest point west on the Clare coastline. The wild and rugged Atlantic coastline, contrasting sharply with the sheltered Shannon Estuary, truly sets a breathtaking backdrop to this lighthouse.
The Lighthouse is now closed to the public and will reopen on the 16th March 2017. The Lighthouse will be open to the public in 2017 from 16th March to 5th November.
During opening hours there is an exhibition on the history of Irish Lighthouses is located in the Light Keeper’s Cottage.
