Fanad Lighthouse

Fanad Lighthouse - Co Donegal
The oldest of the three Lighthouses in Lough Swilly is at Fanad Head on the western shore. It stands at such a strategic point facing the open North Atlantic and also lighting the entrance to the Lough that it is in fact a dual purpose light, both sea light and harbour light. It can be seen for fourteen miles in clear weather and was first exhibited on St. Patrick Day 1817.
