Balbriggan is Ireland’s second oldest active lighthouse, built in 1769. In 2017 Fingal County Council commenced work on the lighthouse to replace the missing dome, which can be seen today fully restored.

Balbriggan is a seaside town on the Belfast-Dublin corridor. Walking trails and rail links nearby allow travellers to arrive quickly and begin exploring immediately. Balbriggan Beach is a local landmark and a favourite recreation spot for generations of Dubliners. The area features a working fishing harbour where you can watch the trawlers go by and take in the seaside air.
