Five Mile Point, Co Wicklow
This is the original coastguard station built in 1823 and now a private residence. The upper window was the look out post and underneath was the boat house. The coming of the railway c 1860 meant direct access to the sea was cut off and a new boathouse near the series of cottages was built

hi have just become a member of coastguards of yesteyear, my main interest being 5 mile point newcastle. I am very familiar with this area but could anyone enlighten me as to where they relocated the new boathouse after the coming of the railway. it mentions near the series of cottages but they lay on the same side, so was it the building opposite on the seaward side which was later known as railway cottage . many thanks..
