The Story

Whether a sea light warning of danger, a wartime lookout post or a harbour light guiding the way to the deep sanctuary of Lough Swilly, Fanad Lighthouse has been both a lifesaver and a home to numerous light-keepers and their families. Built of granite, it has weathered many a storm and kept its beacons shining bright. In 1975 the light was converted from oil to electricity, and with it the nightwatch disappeared. Now the lighthouse is attended to by caretakers, is open for visitors and offers overnight accommodation. It certainly is a cool place to spend the night.

This view captures the lighthouse in full operation, with its beacon reaching into the Atlantic. Next stop Iceland. A true stalwart of the Donegal coast - here's to the next 200 years!
