Crookhaven Lighthouse is located on the entrance of Ireland's most south-westerly harbour and village.
The Lighthouse dates from 1843 and is surrounded by the original dwellings formerly occupied by the keepers
of Fastnet Lighthouse, Mizen fog station and Crookhaven Lighthouse.
Nestled alongside the Lighthouse is the cottage built for the Crookhaven lighthouse keepers.
The original cottage dates from 1843 and was fully renovated in 1999.
2008 saw the completion of an architect designed, light-filled new cottage.
The daring design, with the living space upstairs, makes the most of the spectacular views from Ballydevlin
Bay, Carberry Isles, Alderman Rock, Fastnet Lighthouse to Streak Head.
It is the perfect location for the ultimate escape. Come and experience West Cork at its best.
“Dreaming of ocean views? Your wish is easily fulfilled on this island nation, where cows and sheep
outnumber people along the stunning, undeveloped coastline. Topping the list: the luxurious lighthouse
in the southern village of Crookhaven — complete with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing the Atlantic’s
hypnotic blue waves.”
