The distinctive lighthouse was originally used as harbour lights to guide vessels into Lough Foyle and to lead them clear of the Tuns Bank.
The station was automated on the 31st August 1979 when the Keepers were withdrawn and replaced by an Attendant. An electric foghorn controlled by a fog detector gives two blasts every 30 seconds when activated.
The lighthouse is right next to the excellent blue flag beach of Shroove.
