THE HOOK PENINSULA
Based in Fethard On Sea on the stunning Hook Peninsula, a natural and beautiful outcrop of rugged land. The Peninsula jolts out off the southwest Wexford coast in the Celtic Sea. We have a diverse mix of magnificent natural landscapes, such as beautiful beaches, hidden sandy coves, tall, rugged rocky cliffs, and limestone slabs that reach out of the Atlantic Ocean.
The Hook Peninsula is famous for its Epic Coasteering Experience and is home to the oldest operational lighthouse in the world! (800+ Years). The Hook Lighthouse stands proudly at Hook Head, completely intact, and looks magnificent for miles. With stunning sights and scenes of epic drama in days of old, the place is also steeped in epic history and stories of destruction that you must hear from us! Today it is one of the Irish coast’s most beautiful and genuinely peaceful areas.
