We have often come to the lighthouse and admired this iconic building. Two weeks ago we had the good fortune to attend on the first day of public tours by the new co-operative. The lighthouse is magnificent; well kept and with a really nice display and information centre on the ground floor. Tours can only accommodate 6 people, so booking is essential. It was the first day of tours and our guides first ever tour. He managed quite well, knew his stuff and I gave five stars because there is not doubt that with more tours they will only get better.

Visitors can access the gantry (if it is not too windy) and have stunning views across to Inishowen Peninsula and back toward Tory Island and Horn Head. Fanad is a magical placed and it just got more enchanting with the opening of the lighthouse to the public!

Visited just several days after this opened to the public and were very impressed.
Obviously the setting is amazing with views in every direction but the fact that you can access the lighthouse and be guided right up into the light itself is a bit rare for anyone.
The Guides who are all local to the area are very knowledgable and encouraging to adults and kids to climb the full height of the light and it's worthwhile getting over any nerves you might have. Tours are hourly and they were able to fit us in at lunchtime-thanks.
The local pub- The Lighthouse Inn does food all day so if you're early it's a good place to while away an hour.
Take a camera to record the spectacle if the winds blowing and the waves are crashing on the rocks below.

We tools day trip to Rathmullan and ended up at the lighthouse in Fanad. The views were breathtaking even on a very windy day! Would highly recommend a visit here if in the area the views are simply beautiful

We decided to take a day trip up to Fanad Head Lighthouse. This place is well worth a visit with stunning Panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and can be seen as part of the 'Wild Atlantic Way'. We would highly recommend this hidden beauty to tourists

Beautiful views, and beautiful views on the drive there. The Lighthouse is not accessible to visitors.
