The Baily Lighthouse is a lighthouse on the southeastern part of Howth in County Dublin. The first lighthouse on this site was built in about 1667 by Sir Robert Reading.

A new tower and house for the keeper, designed by George Halpin Senior was completed in March 1814 on the headland to Little Baily, or Dungriffen.  In June, 1972, the system was electrified, and late 1996, the lighthouse was converted to automatic operation, and the last of the Keepers left on March 24, 1997, making Baily the last Irish lighthouse to go automatic. 

I painted the Baily Lighthouse from the sea view, having taking the ferry from Dun Laoghaire Harbour to Howth.
