Lighthouse holidays What could possibly be more romantic than a break in a beautiful lighthouse? Located next to the crashing waves of the sea, enjoying spectacular panoramic views over the cliffs, you’ll feel refreshed and rejuvenated by the sea breeze in no time. You and your loved one can explore the shore by day, trying water-sports, swimming and sailing, or simply sunbathing in your pretty, private garden. In the evening, head home to your cosy, quaint accommodation, where you can sit in front of the fire and enjoy a truly intimate, romantic night in. 

Here at HomeAway, we have a number of lighthouses available for rent. You can opt for a lighthouse in Ireland, and explore the dramatic west coast, or choose somewhere a little sunnier like a lighthouse rental in Florida. Whatever you dream of doing, and wherever you’d like to go, we’ll have the perfect property for you, your family and friends. So why wait? Simply read on for a rundown of our favourite lighthouse rentals, and start planning your break away today.
