Fastnet Rock Lighthouse was, for thousands of emigrants, the last Irish structure seen as they sailed for America. Today, enjoy its rugged beauty without the sadness by stepping aboard the Fastnet Tour. Chart a course for Cape Clear, one of West Cork’s charming unspoilt Gaelthacht Islands & learn more about the famous lighthouse!
Enjoy some free time for lunch or a cuppa. On return to the ferry, sail through whale and dolphin rich waters,(skippers will divert to see them when the opportunity arises) to the voyage’s ultimate destination; the Iconic Fastnet Rock Lighthouse—a Great Lighthouse of Ireland. Make sure to get that once-in-a-lifetime photo.
