Mizen Head Signal Station is open to
the public for the first time since it was completed in 1910. The Mizen Vision Visitor Centre in the Keeper's House and the Engine
Room, the famous Suspension Bridge, the 99 Steps and the views up
the South and West Coasts combined with the exhilaration and
excitement of the wild Atlantic waves and ancient tortured rocks
guarantee a unique and authentic experience.
In any weather the Magic of the Mizen is spellbinding.
Vision the Mizen Head Signal Station Visitor centre has been open
since June 1st, 1994. In April 1993 the fog signal station was
demanned and went automatic. A local co-operative, Mizen
Tourism, was formed to develop the location into a visitor centre
to create rural employment. In July 1993 a lease was signed with
the Irish Lights and the exciting Mizen Vision! became a reality.
There are spectacular views on the
at the end of the peninsula and the houses have been equipped with
an audio-visual room, a map and archive room; the Keeper's kitchen
and bedroom have been retained and there is a bird and sea watch
room. Imagination takes over in the Mizen environment cave, the
Fastnet Room, the Underwater Room and the Storm Room. You are very
welcome to the Mizen! Don't miss it!
