O2334 : North Bull Lighthouse, Dublin

taken 1 year ago, 3 km from Dollymount, Dublin, Ireland

North Bull Lighthouse, Dublin
North Bull Lighthouse, Dublin
One of a pair of lighthouses at the entrance to Dublin Harbour, North Bull Lighthouse is located at the end of the North Bull Wall, opposite Poolbeg Light. The present tower was built 1878-89. It is painted green which is consistent with it being on the starboard side for ships entering the harbour.

Much of the North Bull Wall is submerged at high water; compare this photo with O2334 : North Bull Lighthouse, Dublin Bay which was taken when the tide was higher and the seaward end of the wall was covered.
