Mizen Head is amazing, and the visitor center is good, informative. Loved speaking with the staff that work there, they provided us with so much history and information. The center is clean, there is a small gift shop, toilets and a small cafeteria.

Mizen Head is so much more exciting than Land's End in Cornwall! The geology is spectacular, the cliffs and rock formations diabolical, the tragic history of lives lost on spectacular wrecks well-documented. In addition there is a wealth of knowledge about Fastnet Rock and Lighthouse...More
