This item appears on page 75 of the August 2010 issue.

Wicklow Head Lighthouse, by the Irish Sea about an hour’s drive south of Dublin airport, was built in 1781. The interior of the 95-foot-tall stone tower was remodeled by the Irish Landmark Trust (25 Eustace St., Temple Bar, Dublin 2, 50 Bedford St., Belfast, BT2 7FW, Northern Ireland; phone +353 [0] 1 670 4733) and now contains six octagonal rooms and a kitchen.

The cost for one week’s stay in high season is 1,575 (near $1,925) and in low, 1,260. A midweek stay, arriving Monday and leaving Friday, costs 652 ($800).
