Voted one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world Fanad is an iconic working lighthouse.

Fanad Lighthouse was opened to the public as a visitor attraction with accommodation in three beautifully restored lightkeepers’ cottages in 2016. It is a not-for-profit social enterprise run by voluntary local committee Forbairt Fhánada Cuideachta. Rooted in the community, it is the flagship visitor attraction of the Fanad peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty which has much to offer the visitor. Fanad Head is one of three Signature Discovery Points on the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal. Fanad Lighthouse has been a working lighthouse since 1817.
