Hook Head, County Wexford, Ireland

The Hook Peninsula is simply stunning, rich in history and adventure. The jewel in its crown is Hook Lighthouse which is the oldest working lighthouse in the world and a great place to spend a day playing games there on the lawn, spotting birds, whales, dolphins & seals or searching for fossils in the rocks. The peninsula attracts geologists from all over the world to study its unique geology. They have lots of activities and free events for all the family throughout the year.

My favourite beaches are Carnivan & Baginbun where on low tide you can walk across the beach to the smugglers cave, if you’re brave enough you can climb right in and around in a U shape out the other side. We also love Booley & Dollar Bay where an Spanish ship carrying lots of $$$ ran aground, if you’re lucky you might even find one.

No matter what the weather or whatever the season, there is something special about the Hook Peninsula. In winter, you can light up the stoves, stay cosy inside & watch a storm or spot lightning hitting the ocean from the upstairs windows.

Fethard-on-Sea is the local village where you will find everything you need including shops, pubs, restaurants & tourist information.

Our favourite place to walk at Tintern Abbey in Saltmills just a 10 minute drive away. The Abbey was built by William Marshal who also built Hook Lighthouse & is well worrh a visit to the Abbey, tea rooms, forest walking trails & walled gardens.

There are lots of pubs and restaurants in the area to choose from including Templars Inn, Nevilles gastro pub, Roches in Duncannon, Kevin Dundons local at Dunbrody house but if you’re looking for something special book into Michelin star restaurant Aldridge lodge. All these places are within a 10minute drive.

Hi, I’m Niamh and I’m from the Hook Peninsula in Ireland. The Hook peninsula is really beautiful, wild, full of history with interesting walks and adventures to do all over the peninsula. I am married to Liam and we have two children ages 6 & 7. We live full time in a camper van and we have been traveling full time in since June 2008. We are now living off the Hook and we travel around Europe home schooling our children along the way. Our adventures are entirely funded by the guests who choose to stay at our home on the Hook.
