Galley Head Lighthouse

Galley Head Lighthouse

From this vantage point, you will be looking out over the scenes of multiple shipwrecks that met their fate off the treacherous West Cork coast, including infamous wrecks such as The Lusitania and the Crescent City which struck Doolic Rock in dense fog on 8th February 1871 and is also known as the ‘silver dollar wreck’ because she was carrying Mexican coins.
