***The RSPB West Light Seabird Centre is currently undergoing major refurbishment works. The lower viewing platform is open to the public, while the visitor centre will re-open in late summer 2015***

The West Light Seabird Centre is home to one of the largest breeding seabird colonies in Europe including puffin, guillemot, razorbill and kittiwake.

The newly refurbished visitor centre will also be part of the all-Ireland lighthouse trail, Great Lighthouses of Ireland.

Access is via ferry, private bus and then down 89 steps to the Viewing Platform. RSPB staff and volunteers will be there to welcome you to the site.

Our friendly staff and volunteer team are always there to help.
