Black Head Lighthouse in Burren, Co. Clare, Ireland

Black Head

Black Head in County Clare is situated in the karst region of the Burren. Bizarre limestone formations expand here from Gleninagh Mountains down to the Atlantic’ edge. At first glance, the countryside seems barren, but a surprisingly wide variety of plants grow here between the rocks.


The lighthouse at Black Head is certainly not Ireland’s most beautiful. But in its bizarre surrounding it makes an impressive figure.
