We’re based on the stunning Hook Peninsula, which is a beautiful outcrop of rugged land that jolts out of the southwest Wexford coast. We have a diverse mix of magnificent natural landscapes. Sandy beaches, hidden coves, rugged cliffs, and low-lying limestone slabs reach out of the Atlantic Ocean. The Hook Peninsula is famous for our Sea Cave Kayaking Experience and is home to the oldest operational lighthouse in the world! (800+ Years). The Hook Lighthouse still stands proud at Hook Head, completely intact.
