Wicklow Lighthouse

Wicklow Head Lighthouse has safeguarded and decorated the scenic Wicklow coastline since 1781. It is a peace seeker’s haven with inspiring and refreshing views of the Irish Sea. The landscape and scenery surrounding the lighthouse provide a perfect backdrop for a unique and memorable break.

Two lighthouses were built on Wicklow Head in September 1781. One is on Long Hill and is known as the upper or rear light; the other was on the saddle of the headland and was known as the tower or front light.

Nothing now remains of the front tower, but the rear tower still stands on Long Hill. The Irish Landmark Trust acquired the lighthouse in 1996 and set about conserving the tower. It is approximately 95 feet high, and still functions as a long-established landmark for sailors.

The lighthouse is a truly inspiring place to stay.

Special Note: There are 109 steps to the kitchen on the top floor.
