The Fanad Lighthouse Project has been developed through a partnership involving the Commissioners of Irish Lights, Fanad Lighthouse Committee, Failte Ireland and the Donegal County Council. As the owner of the site and its facilities, the Commissioner of Irish Lights successfully applied for SEUPB Inter-reg funds to develop accommodation on the site of the Fanad Lighthouse as part of the Great Lighthouses of Ireland trail.

Following the securing of the Inter-reg funds and discussions with the Commissioners of Irish Lights, the local community decided to come together and form a Company in order to take on the responsibility for the management of the accommodation and any associated developments thereafter.
