Poolbeg Lighthouse and Great South Wall
Poolbeg Lighthouse and Great South Wall
Poolbeg Lighthouse in Dublin Bay, stands at the seaward end of the Great South Wall, (also known as the South Bull Wall). The lighthouse was built in 1768 and initially operated on candlepower (reputedly the first in the world to do so) but changed to oil in 1786. It was re-designed and re-built into its present form in 1820. The lighthouse is painted red to indicate ‘port side’ for ships entering Dublin Bay and North Bull lighthouse (on the other side of the bay) is painted green to indicate it is ‘starboard’.
