Come visit Fanad Head Lighthouse, one of Donegal's maritime treasures! Located on the east coast of the windswept Fanad peninsula in North Donegal, Fanad Head Lighthouse was voted one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world. Standing between the idyllic Lough Swilly and the sandy Mulroy Bay it is no wonder this lighthouse is a highlight of the Wild Atlantic Way.
Fanad Head lighthouse was built to help guide ships and sailors safely on their trips. It is still standing today, projecting its light towards the sea on a rocky ledge. Climb to the top of the lighthouse and see the incredible views of the Fanad Peninsula, keep an eye on dolphins, whales, and seals that surface from the ocean. You can even spend the night at one of the characterful lightkeepers’ houses.
