The Poolbeg Lighthouse was built in the year 1768 in the Dublin Bay and was operated initially just on candlepower which was reputedly also the first in the world to do so. However, it changed to oil in 1786 and was then completely re-built and re-designed to how one gets to see it now in the year 1820. The lighthouse is a conspicuous and absolutely stunning feature in the bay and occupies a nearly central position. The original lighthouse wasn’t as high as the existing structure and was surmounted by a lantern that was octagonal in shape and consisted of eight glass windows. The Poolbeg Lighthouse today can be reached via a lengthy seawall which attracts anglers, sightseers and cyclists.
