Self-Catering Accommodation at Blackhead Lightkeeper’s House 1
Blackhead Lightkeeper’s House 1
Two bedroom house on the North Shore of Belfast Lough with panoramic views.
A wonderful place – loved the morning sun from the bedroom window – didn’t even have to get out of bed to see the wonderful sunrise. I am sad to leave this beautiful place.
We had a wonderful time on our trip. What a spectacular location! It was really special. I would love to return one day.
Blackhead Lightkeeper’s House 1 is one of three properties available as part of the Blackhead Lighthouses. They are ideally situated on the North Shore of Belfast Lough. The panoramic views from this property are stunning and fill visitors with pure delight and admiration.
This magnificent house, in its breathtaking location, is a proud example of Ireland’s maritime heritage. Guests can enjoy spectacular views over Belfast Lough from the Lightkeepers’ Houses. A popular coastal path leads along in front of the lightouse to the Victorian town of Whitehead. Lying 20 miles north of Belfast, Whitehead is only a 40 minute train journey away from city centre shopping and many historical tours.
The houses contain interesting fragments of lighthouse paraphernalia, including the whistle pipe system used to wake up the next watch, and a tunnel that was used to travel between the lighthouse and quarters during stormy weather. Built in the glory days of Belfast’s shipping, Blackhead Lighthouse remains as impressive and powerful a navigation aid as ever.
