Loophead Lighthouse – Attendant’s Cottage

This authentic lighthouse attendant’s cottage exudes charm and other-worldly peacefulness, offering guests a unique retreat amidst stunning vistas. Settle into an inviting space that incorporates historic ambiance blended with modern comfort.  The Loop Head Lighthouse Attendant’s Cottage was originally the home of one of the attendants who helped the Lighthouse Keeper tend the light. The cottage was extensively renovated in 2024 and the interior was designed to provide modern comforts whilst preserving the history of the building. It has wonderful views of the Atlantic from the back windows and garden, a fully fitted modern kitchen, a cosy lounge diner with a flat screen TV, 3 lovely bedrooms, a reading room/study and a beautiful bathroom with sea views. Every room has been styled with great attention to detail and there is Wi-Fi throughout.

Please note: 

  • As there are cliffs nearby, children must be supervised at all times. You should also be aware that there can be very strong winds in the area. Please stay away from the edges of the cliffs during your visit, particularly with children.
  • While the lighthouse station is quite remote, Kilbaha Village (3 miles away) offers a pub/restaurant, while Cross (7 miles) and Carrigaholt (10 miles) have small convenience stores.
  • The property is in the compound of the Lighthouse and from July to September complementary guided tours of the Lighthouse are included in the price.
  • The bedrooms are laid out as double rooms; two of the rooms have 4-foot beds and the master bedroom a 5-foot bed.
  • This property offers access to a terrace, free private parking and free Wi-Fi. The property is non-smoking, pet-free, and is situated just 100 metres from Loop Head Lighthouse.
