Brownstown Head, Tramore Head

Okay, so these are not really lighthouses but they are very definitely aids to maritime mavigation and they are lighthouse-like in appearance, so I reckon they are worthy of mention. Brownstown Head (above) is adorned with two pillars, Tramore Head (below) is adorned with three, the centre one of which plays host to the famous "Metal man," which is something of a symbol of Tramore.


  1. Great pictures! I plan to see all the lighthouses in Ireland. This was a great help!

  2. So do I Brian, There's about 80 active ones plus about the same again former lighthouses. Not to mention beacons such as Brownstown Head above, Goat Island etc and sites of ex-lighthouses which are no longer there! I reckon I'm only about a third of the way through them!
