Wicklow Head Lighthouse Review

This 95-foot-high stone tower—first built in 1781—once supported an eight-sided lantern, and has been renovated by the Irish Landmark Trust as a delightfully quirky lodging. It sleeps four to six people in two octagonal bedrooms and a sofa bed in the sitting room. The kitchen and dining room at the top have stunning views out over the coast. Don't forget anything in the car; it's a long way down. You rent the entire lighthouse, and you must book for at least two nights. The old lighthouse is just south of town on Wicklow Head, right next to the new, automated one.
