Loop Head Cliffs & Lighthouse, Ireland

October 4.

We traveled from Doolin (my favourite town in Ireland) to Dingletown via Loop Head and the Bridges of Ross. 

Loop Head Lighthouse.

There was a lighthouse at the end and we made the mistake of entering the gate. Near thing we knew, the gatekeeper was right there at the car window saying, “I’ll have 10€ off you; once you’re through the gate there’s no going back.”

The Loop Head Lighthouse was erected in 1670, and we were allowed to see some of the inner workings.
