About

Fanad Lighthouse is a not-for-profit social enterprise run by voluntary local committee Forbairt Fhánada Teoranta. It is the flagship visitor attraction of the Fanad peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty which has much to offer the visitor – secluded sandy beaches, hiking and hillwalking, kayaking, golfing, angling and a warm Donegal welcome.

Fanad Lighthouse is an iconic working lighthouse at the mouth of Lough Swilly. It has been voted one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world and it’s easy to see why. Photographers regularly capture stunning, atmospheric images of this evocative structure and the surrounding wild coastline.

It is one of three Signature Discovery Points on the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal.

Fanad Lighthouse has been a working lighthouse since 1817. It has been open to the public as a tourist attraction since 2016 and also offers unique overnight accommodation in three beautifully restored lightkeepers’ cottages.

We offer fully guided tours where you can hear all about the lighthouse and climb the tower in the company of a local guide. We also welcome group tours all year round by appointment.
