The Old Signal Station

Mizen Head Signal Station was built in 1909 and was originally just a fog signal station. Permission was given by the Board of Trade for a lighthouse and fog signal in 1906. There is no lantern; the light is mounted in the open on a freestanding pedestal. Forming a backdrop to the light is a 4 metre octagonal concrete structure with two rectangular rooms attached on opposite sides, which was the original fog signal building. The active
focal plane of the structure is 55 metres with a 4 metre octagonal cylindrical stone tower attached to a one-story rectangular fog signal building, all painted white. In
1931, Mizen Head Signal Station had the first radio beacon in Ireland, providing a navigation aid to shipping.
