St John's Point Lighthouse, Co Down

While lighthouse buildings differ depending on the location and purpose, they tend to have common components. This station established in 1844 had the primary objective of guiding ships safely into Dundrum Bay. This Bay had a long reputation for being a ship's graveyard.

A Light Station consists of the Lighthouse tower and all outbuildings, such as the keeper's living quarters, fuel house, boathouse, fog-signaling building. The Lighthouse itself consists of a tower structure supporting the lantern room where the light operates.
