we saw 46 lighthouse,6 aids to navigation. Favorite? Well several, Rathlin West, the upside down lighthouse with a red light, Fanad, especially since we stayed there for 2 nights, Skellige Michael (like the old one better, even though it is heavily damaged). Loop Head in part because we got to climb and in part the docents told us of a nearby art gallery that had a lapel pin (the only one I could find of any of the lighthouses). Sheeps Head, mainly because we survived the hike. Old Head of Kinsale, it is in good condition and we got lucky that it was open as it is only open 2 weekends a year. Baltimore pillar, it is an aid to navigation and I saw people climbing the cliff to view, so I climbed too...almost a mistake, but the view was great and did not realize it is 50 foot tall (much bigger than I thought). Dunmore East, it looks like a doric column and you can see Hook lighthouse across the water. Fastnet, even though a distant view, it looked good, if only we had time to go by boat to get closer.
We also saw the Titanic Museum, Giants Causeway, a castle here and there, Long Library, and the lighthouse tavern, and the surprise stay at Ballynahitch
