Ballycotton Island Lighthouse Tours was officially launched on Thursday 10th July in conjunction with the Commissioners of Irish Lights. This landmark lighthouse built in the mid 1800s has opened its doors to the public for a new tourism initiative off the sunny South East Coast.
Yasmine Hyde, founder of Ballymaloe Relish is at the helm of this new venture. After successfully securing €90,000 in funding from SECAD, the South and East Cork Area Development fund, this exciting not-for-profit company was launched in the scenic fishing village situated 40k from Cork City.
Ballycotton Island Lighthouse Tours offer an exhilarating and magical experience where you can travel to the island in an open topped 12-passenger boat named ‘Yassy’. While you are there you can explore the lighthouse while enjoying the stunning views from the lantern balcony.
The Commissioners of Irish Lights wish Ballycotton Island Lighthouse Tours every success for the future.
