Beacon Point

Local nameBeacon Point

The Baltimore Beacon is a white-painted stone beacon at the entrance to the harbour at Baltimore, County Cork, Ireland. The beacon was built at the order of the British government following the 1798 Rebellion. It was part of a series of lighthouses and beacons dotted around the Irish coast, forming a warning system.

The beacon is locally known as "Lot's Wife", after the Biblical woman turned into a pillar of salt.
