THE HOOK LIGHTHOUSE, Wexford
The Hook Lighthouse is one of the oldest lighthouses in Europe and the current structure has stood for almost 100 years. It can be easily seen from Kilmore Quay on a clear day. There is a tradition that it was built by monks in the 5th century to protect sailors from the rocks. The whole peninsula on a good day is a most pleasant drive with places of historic and spectacular importance all along the route–––Tintern Abbey, Dunbrody Abbey, Loftus Hall, Kennedy Park etc etc.
There is a huge amount of historic sites to visit en route to the Hook, around the county of Wexford and the scenic drive is beautiful on a sunny day, with plenty of places to stop for coffee and cakes and to take some wonderful photographs. We have plenty of information held in the Touring Wexford information books in the cottages that you can view at your leisure.
