rish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and we give them new life. Since 1992, we’ve been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Our properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges. As an educational charity, our primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That’s why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home.

We had a lovely stay here. Such a beautiful location and the house (Blackhead cutter) is so gorgeous. Original features, stunning views and a lovely path leading down to the caves beneath. Pamela who is the point of contact is very friendly and helpful.

"Ever room is beautiful"
"Lighthouse is old so lot of noise at night if windy so bring ear plugs."
"Every bedroom has a stunning view."
"I'd stay in the Summer-time if using all the bedrooms as the ones downstairs aren't well ventilated and may be a bit damp."
