Poolbeg Lighthouse

My mother will probably kill me for doing this post because the walk out to this lighthouse gave her an injury three years ago that she still recovering from…but it still is a beautiful walk and it’s not far at all from my new old house. The Poolbeg Lighthouse  was built in 1768 (the same year the first mustard was manufactured in America – who knew?) and initially operated on candlepower – once again, how cool!

The area is also the home to the Half Moon Swimming Club and you’ll frequently see people who are completely out of their minds swimming in the ice-cold water (okay, so that’s my opinion :-)).
