The Tower House in the Clare Island Lighthouse is without a doubt one of the most amazing places to stay on the Irish West coast. Just climb the stairway to almost heaven and enjoy a view you have never seen from any other bedroom before.
High on the dramatic cliffs of Clare Island you will find one of the most characteristic lighthouses of the world. For almost two hundred years this wonderful settlement has been a major nautical landmark, watching over Westport, Achill and beyond. Now the complex offers a unique chance to those who would like to experience the true ‘lighthouse keeper experience’. A stay in the Tower House at the base is without a doubt the best way to do so!
The interior is breathtaking, offering all the comfort you can ask for. On ground level you find the living room along with the bathroom, both with original flagstone floors. Take a step up the circular tower and you enter the jewel in the crown: the bedroom.
You have probably never slept in a place more spectacular then this original light tower, offering amazing sea views over the Atlantic Island. The design of this room is low key to keep the authentic feeling of the original function, yet the warm wood floor gives a comfortable feeling. And the comfortable double bed is guaranteed to give a great night rest. Just imagine you sleeping here with your beloved one, thinking of the reassuring light that has been shining from this room to all those sailors on the seas below.
