The Lighthouse

A new service available from Achill to Blacksod.

Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours

Enjoy the picturesque views around Blacksod and visit the historic Blacksod lighthouse.

The remote Blacksod lighthouse and coast guard station played a key role during World War II.

Maureen Sweeneys weather reading led to D Day being postponed to 6th June giving the Allies a two day advance warning of stormy conditions in western Europe, forcing General Dwight D Eisenhower to delay his meticulously planned invasion of Normandy.

The rest is history.
