5 star rating Absolutely Brilliant The drive here is beautiful and as you come upon the lighthouse itself, the stunning cliff views will make you gasp. The tour is great value, very well informed staff and you can climb the 59 steps to the very top of the lighthouse itself....the size of the bulbs will shock you....incredible! - 17/04/2018

…we had a personal guide who was brilliant, plenty of stories and loads of factual information… worth every penny. Our guide brought the lighthouse to life at every stage of our tour. A fabulous end to our day in one of the most beautiful places in the world. - 01/10/2019

5 star rating Amazing looking into the past - with views that will take your breath away An amazing structure, views that will take your breath away. The tour of the lighthouse gives a great trip into the past life of this building and the people who lived here plus the evolution of the Irish lighthouse. 10/10 - 17/11/2017

5 star rating We thoroughly enjoyed the lighthouse tour. Very interesting at a spectacular location… The guides were both well informed and interesting and were genuinely keen. The kids 13 and 11 really enjoyed it... Had a lovely coffee and homemade pastry at the coffee shop, a good place to meet other people on their way from and to the tour. …My 88 year old Dad was really impressed with it and managed the steps. I had emailed ahead to see if it would be suitable and Eimear replied immediately which was such a help. The staff could not have been nicer. This was my favourite destination in a 3 day tour of Donegal and I would love to go back and stay overnight sometime. - 17/08/2019
