You will begin in the interpretative centre at the base of the lighthouse where you will explore the history of the lighthouse, the stories of the keepers and their families, the tragic shipwrecks of Lough Swilly, aids to navigation and how lighthouses have changed over the years. Your tour culminates with a climb to the top of the tower into the lightroom where you will have spectacular 360 views over North Donegal, the Atlantic Ocean and Lough Swilly.
