It's been wonderful weather while we've been in Ireland, but raining and blowing today. The walk out to the Lighthouse at Bisham head was incredible. The people who live in this area must be very Hardy to be able to handle the blowing winds and stinging rain. I loved it. It gave a great sense of what Ireland can be. The walk across the bridge and standing out on the point for absolutely spectacular.

Very well maintained and plenty of information available so worth the €25 for a family of four. Lovely walk but not too far, well sign posted. We spent a couple of hours here but it was at a very leisurable pace. The views are stunning and the colour of the water was beautiful. We had a very relaxing time.

You can’t come to the region and not go here!! A little bit of walking but well set out and signposted. Worth going even if you take it slow!

Admittedly it was a Sunday in early December but we had done our homework and checked that the centre was open. The website was clear - open today. We travelled the 40 odd miles from Baltimore and into the sea mist arriving, with another group, to find the place locked up and deserted. Not a sign or notice to say, back shortly, open soon or even, 'go away'!

This was most disappointing as we had made a special effort to take friends from Australia to what we think is a special place. Our only mistake was that we should have phoned ahead. On our way back we passed through Goleen and there was a visitor centre that was open so we called in and the staff there said, "Closed today, weekends close to Christmas they don't always bother." Not the best is it? - but it's a lesson to all - Make sure the place is going to be open. If you can get there it is fantastic but, as you can tell, we we're really disappointed.

Spectacular views with a breath taking bridge to cross. Difficult and narrow roads to get to this fantastic location but worth the effort.

Totally recommended
