Spectacular cliff edge location, wild and remote, 5km from the village of Leabgarrow. The lighthouse, which is still operational, is at the end of the garden. The houses are two three bedroomed semi-detached houses, former Lightkeepers' dwellings.

The space

The remote location.... a house perched on a cliff, at the tip of a remote headland, on an island off the north west coast of Ireland, on the very edge of Europe makes this a unique 'get away from it all' experience. Add to that a functioning lighthouse at the bottom of the garden and you have a place which is very special indeed. The house is one of two semi-detached houses, the second house may also be rented, ideal for a large group.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire house as well as to the grounds in the vicinity of the lighthouse. Unfortunately the lighthouse is the property of Irish Lights and guests cannot have access to the lighthouse itself. However because the lighthouse is still functioning, guests have a wonderful view, at night from the garden, of the light beaming out over the ocean. It is magical!

Interaction with guests

The remote location means that it is difficult for me to have much interaction with guests. My uncle who worked as a Lighthouse Attendant before his retirement, now looks after the keys for the houses for me and enjoys meeting guests and telling them the history of the lighthouse.

Incredible location! Fiona was a great host. The place was cozy, comfortable, and had the most remarkable views, and magnificent places to wander and explore. An amazing adventure for our first few night in Ireland! Thank you!

The setting of the lighthouse gives a sense of isolation and of being at the ends of the earth. Yet it is a ten minute drive to the pub, shop and post office. The rustic charm of the accommodation is entirely suited to the setting. The walks are breathtaking. Bring binoculars foe seal watching in coves below the cliffs. We went to phil bans and sang rebel songs with the locals who were fun and full of the craic. If you want s unique and memorable holiday, look no further.
