Fastnet rock and lighthouse

Starting at: $7.00

The Fastnet Lighthouse is situated on a small islet in the Atlantic Ocean and is the most southerly point of Ireland. It lies 6,5 kilometers southwest of Cape Clear Island and 13 kilometers from County Cork on the Irish mainland. Due to its location, Fastnet was known as Ireland's Teardrop, because it was the last part of Ireland that 19th-century emigrants saw as they sailed to North America. This photo was taken by a passenger on the White Star Line steamship Celtic (2) in Aug./Sept. 1902. For more info about Fastnet please see:
