Fanad Lighthouse

Teach Solais Fhánada and lightkeepers’ cottages are located in Ireland’s most northerly Gaeltacht. The lighthouse has been featured in global marketing campaigns to showcase the unique destinations along the Wild Atlantic Way. Teach Solais Fhánada is a community initiative supported by Donegal County Council, the Commissioners of Irish Lights, Fáilte Ireland and Údarás na Gaeltachta. This attraction has guided tours, a visitor centre and accommodation.

Údarás na Gaeltachta has offered valuable, ongoing support to the Teach Solais Fhánada social enterprise from the outset. Údarás has been central in providing support to recruit a marketing executive to promote and sell this attraction. The Údarás is also represented on the Board of Teach Sholais Fhánada.
