For me, Fastnet is the daddy of them all. It’s not the oldest (Hook Head holds that distinction), but it epitomises what a lighthouse should look like and how it should behave. Firmly planted on Fastnet rock, the tower is a masterclass in nineteenth-century construction and engineering. It has survived storms that should by rights have wiped it off the face of the earth and come up asking for more. At night, it looks like the tower of Mordor, but is beloved by all who served on it. Long may it shine on.
About the Prints
Súileir original prints are printed on premium stock acid-free Canson Lustre paper and mounted with Larson Juhl acid-free archival mount board. They are mounted with a bevelled mount and carefully framed with handcrafted solid wood bevelled frames. All our wooden frames use wood sourced from sustainable forests. Many of our prints are digitally signed and embossed with our signature seal.
To keep your print as safe as possible, we use high-quality clear perspex glazing on our shipped framed prints. On our click-and-collect prints, we use 2mm clear float glass. All our unframed prints are sent flat, with bevelled mount, backing board and print sleeve. All framed and unframed prints are wrapped in tissue paper with a branded card and carefully placed in cardboard boxes with our branded stamp and labels, making our prints an ideal gift.
