Took a drive here in the early evening as the sea fret was coming in. Nothing more to say other than it was a silent, serene and gorheous place to take 5 amd relax to the sound of unseen seabirds!

Lots of hiking trails in the area with breathtaking scenery, view Holyhead mountain for a really good view of the area. Port of Holyhead is the place to catch the ferry to Dublin where the Guinness boat comes from.

This place is well worth a visit. Especially if you are into birds. The views are amazing. The only down side for me was getting down the steps, them being very steep. But even without going down to the lighthouse you are able to see...More

The commitment and industry of the people who built, operated and maintained (and continue to look after) the lighthouse are emphasised by the dramatic location and its range of wildlife. We were lucky to see it on a still, clear and mild October day. A...More

I didn’t see any height restrictions anywhere but it is an awkward climb up to the light so possibly not suitable for youngsters anyway. The lighthouse building itself is worth a visit regardless of going into the light... More
