lighthouse Ardnakinna

Lighthouse Ardnakinna (Bearhaven) in September 2010. The lighthouse is located at the most southwestern tip of Bere Island, this island is about 3 kilometres away from the mainland in Bantry Bay in the County Cork. We took the picture of the lighthouse from the mainland, southwesterly of Castletownbere.
A beacon existing since 1847 had been constructed as a lighthouse tower and got the modified lantern of a lightship. It marks the western entry to Castletownbere.
