Kilcredaun Lighthouse.

Kilcreadaun Lighthouse
Robert Brown

The decommissioned Kilcredaun Point Lighthouse is built on Kilcredaun Head . It is a single bay, two-stage round stone tower with lantern and gallery attached to one-story keeper’s house. The lighthouse was built in 1824 and cost £8,000 to build. It is a miniature version of Loop Head Lighthouse and was designed by the same architect George Halpin and can be seen when out on the Dolphinwatch. There are beautiful views of the Kerry coastline and mountains and the iconic Rehy hill (124m high) from the lighthouse.
