THE HOOK PENINSULA
We are based on the stunning Hook Peninsula which is a natural and beautiful outcrop of rugged land jolting out off the south west Wexford coast. The peninsula has a diverse mix of magnificent natural landscapes such as beautiful sandy beaches, hidden coves, tall rugged rocky cliffs and low lying limestone slabs that reach out of the Atlantic Ocean clinging to the land. This all gives home to an array of wildlife which we will discover along our way.
The Hook Peninsula is most famous for being home to the oldest operational lighthouse in the world! (800+ Years). The Hook Lighthouse still stands proud at Hook Head, completely intact and still in use, looking magnificent for miles around. With stunning sights and scenes of epic drama in days of old the place is also steeped in epic history, stories of destruction that you must hear from us! Today it is one of the most beautiful and truly peaceful areas of coast to visit in Ireland.
