Took my family (6 pax) but decided not to enter as the cost was too much so we his review rating was on the cost. We did enjoy the beaches while traveling to the light house.

I can understand a price for a guided tour but just to walk around the grounds? Ridiculous. Go to the waterwheel and check the coast from that vantage point. Take a tight fitting hat - the wind is full on.
