Characteristics

Description

White tower. Character:Fl 15s
19/08/2007
Update
Marks the South entrance of the Kenmare river,  a most picturesque bay (despite its name), which offers a number of safe and beautiful harbours such as Sneem and Kilmakilloge. Darryname at the Northern entrance of the bay (North of Abbey Island) is also a beautiful and safe anchorage but the entrance is narrow and faces SW, so it is only suitable in settled weather.
There's a sea arch running East - West through the rock, right under the lighthouse.

Mizen Head

The Southernmost point of the Irish mainland, Mizzen head is a major headland with should be treated with due respect as the tidal streams round the headland reach 4 knots and can give a very nasty sea if running against a swell. The tide runs East on the flood and West on the ebb.

Holding is not great in the bay (patches of sea weed). It is possible to come alongside the pier in front of the pub. Very little in the way of facilities, but picturesque, and a convenient stop if waiting for the tide to round Mizzen head.
