Wicklow Head Lighthouses

As much as possible at the weekend I like to get out of the city and get back to nature. In the summer that means being close to the sea. This weekend C and I explored Wicklow Head Trail and it's three lighthouses. I had always been intrigued by the main lighthouse and wanted to get up close to it. We discovered that there is a trail that goes from the main road in Wicklow which brings you to the two lighthouses visible from the road. Hidden behind the rocks at the end of the trail is the third and only remaining functional lighthouse of Wicklow Head and also happens to be the most eastern point of the Republic of Ireland.
