Lighthouse 9 Irish Story Candles

We are candlemakers

Light our candle and allow its natural scented aroma to soothe your senses. Every Scent a Memory.

We are storytellers

We’ve been gathering stories from along the Wild Atlantic Way. The 2,500 km route is laden with stories from those who live here and from those who travel across the world to experience “The Way”.

We are friends

Lighthouse 9 is the result of lifelong friendships. We’ve reached that point in our lives when we realise the importance of doing “what we want” as opposed to “what we have to”.

Our name – Lighthouse 9, is a respectful nod to the nine “Great Lighthouses” that stand proudly along Irelands Western shores. (Technically, there are only 8…Fanad Head, St. John’s Point, Blacksod, Clare Island, Loop Head, Valentia Island, Fastnet Rock and Gally Head but we decided to add in Ballycotton because it has a special place in our heart…)

Lighthouse 9

Throughout the centuries, their bright lights have guided many a weary sailor home safely to their loved ones. They truly are, “the light in the window”. Over the many years of visiting these lighthouses, we began to consider the number of stories that exist around them and along our coastline, along the Wild Atlantic Way. From this thought, our story candles were born.
