Loop Head Lightkeeper’s House

Loop Head Lighthouse station is the major landmark on the northern shore of the Shannon River. The surrounding coastline is of a dramatic character with cliffs sculpted by Atlantic storms where rock ledges and caves are home to seabirds, seals and other maritime animals.

The lighthouse complex is built on a clifftop with 300 degree views of the sea, down to Kerry Head and Dingle, across the Shannon, and up the Clare coast to the Cliffs of Moher to the north.

The peninsula has always been used as a look out - there are numerous pre-christian forts along the coast, and today it is still an outstanding look-out spot for dolphins, whales and seabirds.

Special Notes: There are cliffs nearby and children should be supervised at all times.  The lighthouse station is reasonably remote, although Kilbaha village with post office, shop and pub is only 3 miles away.  It is recommended that guests bring bottled drinking water as there is no mains supply at the station.
