Contrary to popular belief, Mizen Head is not the most southerly point on the mainland of Ireland. Nearby Brow Head holds that title.
Located on the promontory are an old signalling station, a weather station, and a lighthouse. The signalling station, now a museum, is open to visitors. The "99 steps" are a long series of steps on the pathway across to the rocky outcrop upon which the station was built.
Access here could be tricky, I parked at the far end of the visitors centre carpark and made a quick uphill dash when no-one was looking, crossing farmed fields first then open bog. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1020/comment/5846/
