I was blessed with fine weather so was able to fully enjoy the views of the Atlantic and rugged cliffs. The light house is worth a visit to with a great view from the top and some interesting local history from the guide. Recommend.

the cliffs here are in my opinion far better and more dramatic then the famous Cliffs of Moher. take the north coast road back from the lighthouse it's quiet (no tourist buses) and the cliffs are amazing. The lighthouse itself was closed when we visited, but was in such a dramatic setting (again walk beyond it to see the ocean... More

I was way more impressed with Loophead than Moher, even though it's much smaller in scale. Because it's remote and there are so few people (we saw maybe 4-5 other people walking around) you really get to enjoy the landscape in a different way than Moher. Honestly, the original impetus for going was that we heard the filmed some of... More

Took this little detour on the way to Doolin. It's a bit of a drive from the main road to get here, but it was worth it. Fantastic views of the ocean, cliffs, and Aran Islands. Not a place for a depressed person -- you can walk right off the cliffs. The lighthouse is beautiful, but I didn't go into... More

My friends and I were recommended this place by a Clare bus driver and it was a fantastic tour! The views over the Atlantic ocean and over the Clare cliffs was fantastic! The staff were so friendly - like all the Clare people we met. I recommend this lighthouse tour as the 5 euro entrance fee made it great value... More

What an absolute stunning location. The tour guide at Loop Head lighthouse was very friendly and well informed, ensuring we were up to speed with the history of the area. The walks then along the cliff tops were breathtaking. If you're ever visiting the west coast of Ireland, be sure to stop off.

I scattered my dads ashes here on a wet and windy Autumn day. Though on a sunny day it is an amazingly beautiful tranquil place. It would be nice to sit down and have a picnic here, it's miles from civilisation, and takes ages to get to.

We had a breathtaking trip to loop head lighthouse. The cliff walk that encircles the lighthouse is amazing. Last time I was there we saw a group of seals. This time around 20 dolphins gave us a stunning performance for around 15 minutes. We did the lighthouse tour which was really interesting with lovely views from the top.

The visit is excellent, the workmanship in the lighthouse is unbelievable. You climb right to the top and walk around the outside. The views are fantastic and the entry charge was very reasonable.
