Fenit Lighthouse

Since 1854 Little Samphire Island Lighthouse has served as a navigation light for Tralee Bay. Light keepers manned the station for more than a hundred years from 1854 to 1956. While automated in 1954 a keeper remained in residence until 1956. A visit to Little Samphire Island is the ultimate Fenit experience.

A wonderful vessel with comfort for up to 12 guests. A leisurly pace around Tralee Bay means you can relax, take in the scenery from every angle, speak with the crew and maybe even get close up to the pod of 3 Fenit bottle nose dolphins.
