Ballycurrin Lighthouse

 
 
Ballycurrin lighthouse sits on the shore of Lough Corrib in Co.Galway. It is said to be the only inshore lighthouse of its kind in Europe.

It was built in the late 1700s by the local landowner Liam Lynch so that steamer that ran from Galway to Cong could make its way to his nearby Ballycurrin House with supplies. The Lighthouse is 22 foot high and has a mill stone as its roof. The uppermost section of the lighthouse would have been used to burn timber to create the beacon
