Viltra designed a bespoke wastewater system for this flagship visitor attraction that was unique and tailored for its surroundings.

Client Overview

Fanad Lighthouse is an iconic working lighthouse, it is the flagship visitor attraction of the Fanad peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty situated at Fanad Head, one of three Signature Discovery Points on the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal, Ireland. It has been voted one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world.


Located on the Fanad peninsula, the attraction required a very high quality of effluent due to how close the site was to the Irish Sea. Due to the location of the lighthouse, the sewage treatment system had to be innovatively built up at the side of a cliff.

Our Solution

Viltra designed a bespoke sewage and effluent treatment system specifically built with dimensions to fit within the boundaries of a wall at the side of a cliff. Working alongside Tecsoil who are based in Donegal, Viltra helped design an Intermittent sand polishing filter and tailor-built a sewage treatment plant.

The wastewater system installed by Viltra at Fanad Lighthouse has exceeded compliance rates for the last 4/5 years and is regularly maintained and serviced by Viltra to ensure the system is working to its optimum performance and producing a high-quality effluent to ensure protection of the surrounding beauty and local environment. Due to the popularity of the attraction, visitor numbers have increased.
