Did you know you can take a boat trip to Ballycotton Lighthouse? It's the perfect day out for families in East Cork...

The last lighthouse keeper left Ballycotton Island in 1992.

Thanks to a brilliant guided tour, however, visitors today can scoot over to the rock, immerse themselves in its stories, and be back on the mainland within two hours.

Ballycotton Island Lighthouse Tours (€20/€10pp) run seasonal trips, with tours of the keepers’ complex and stonking views over East Cork from the top of the lighthouse itself.
