Want to discover the South-East of Ireland? Start here, at the Hook Peninsula in County Wexford. Here’s what to expect when visiting this part of the Island:
Located in the far side of the county, westbound from Wexford town, the peninsula offers many interesting sites such as this building: Hook Head Light House; one of Ireland’s prettiest coastal tourists’ attractions — The longest operating lighthouse in the world!
A family friendly attraction too, with playground, picnic area
and cafe/souvenirs shop.
A tour of the light house delivered by one of the volunteer guides will offer you great insights on the functions of such a building and on the life of the monks whom once manned it. The cherry on the cake! The 360 panoramic view of County Wexford and neighbouring County Waterford from the top of the tower.
