Mizen Head - Southwesternmost point of Ireland

Travelchallenge Mizen Head on the tip of Kilmore Peninsula is Ireland's most south-westerly point. 

Many believe this is the southernmost point but this is in fact Brow Head that you might well want to go to as well. It's only 4 km away. In any case it is one of the most westerly points of Europe and so closest to America. For this reason Guglielmo Marconi chose Mizen Head to build his radio signal tower to send the first transatlantic telegraph messages. You can visit it.

 

The Irish commonly use the expression “from Malin Head to Mizen Head” referring to the geographical extent of the island. Therefore there are cycling, runners, walkers and motor events from one to the other, a distance of some 600 km. It is also the starting or finishing point of the Wild Atlantic Way, a Great Route Mostpoint. 

 

Mizen Head offers you spectacular views of cliffs and the Atlantic Ocean. There is a visitors centre and 4 walks you can do. 1. Dunlough View takes you over a gorgeous bridge, that may be closed with storms, to where the land ends. 2. Sea Arch takes you up to a platform from which you see the Sea Arch and the bridge.

3. Bridge view is a walk without long and steep climbs with views on the bridge and the north of the peninsula. 4. Derrick Path  is a short walk to the place that was used to stock the boats at the station before the bridge was built in 1909. Great view of the bridge from below.

 

Keep your eyes open to spot seals near the shore and lots of seabirds.
