Irish Lighthouses and Coastal Tours of Ireland
Number 1 tour on IrishCentral.
Not just lighthouses, we also see ring forts, standing stones, ancient castles, birds, wild flowers. Stay at lighthouses and superb B&Bs. Fastnet, Skellig Michael, Hook Head, Fanad, Blackhead, Loop Head and lots more lighthouses. Leave the beaten track to see things few outsiders ever get to see.
Author, photographer and award winning artist John Eagle coupled with bus driver Tommy Hartnett make a great team. Each tour group is kept small, so we all get to know eachother. You will be picked up and dropped where it suits you best, and in between we hope you will have a grand time here in Ireland.
With the Euro being so weak against other currencies my tours represent great value for money

See you on the Northern Lighthouse Tour
go through the Bull Rock Tunnel
€75 per person, I can give a discount for 8 people going at once, so make a group of 8 and I will let you go for €50 a person. The high speed boat trip lasts about three hours
Watch the video of going through the arch
It is far from easy to do this boat trip which makes it more challenging, you need patience and a desire to go. I was forced to cancel 4 trips in 2012 due to bad weather. If you get to go through the needle then consider yourself one of the lucky ones. It is a lot of fun
The reward is passing through the Bull Rock tunnel, which, it is said, you pass into the Underworld
Bere Island Caves Boat Trip
Spend a couple of hours going round Bere Island, visiting fantastic caves and getting to see lighthouses, wrecks, and wildlife €60pp minimum booking 2 people
See the Fastnet with me, and see Ireland's historical past too
Spend a few days with me at a lighthouse, the most en~lightening place to do a workshop
Hi, I'm John Eagle. I give tours round the Irish coast looking at lighthouses. I also teach workshops in lighthouses, where amongst other things we work on ways to make the lantern light really interesting. There's always lots to see and do around lighthouses, passing boats, lots of seabirds.
I was the first person to make a complete set of postcards of Irish lighthouses and I have had 2 books about them published. I am passionate about taking people round the lights of Ireland. My tours also include visits to local historical sites and points of interest along the way
your enjoyment is my pleasure ..John Eagle
Would you like to join in the fun?
There has never been a better time to visit Ireland
The tour bus can take 9, but only 8 people can stay in the lighthouses we go to. Please book early to avoid disappointment. I can take a larger bus for my tours that do not stay at lighthouses
