Hook Peninsula is a peninsula in County Wexford. Said to offer ‘a beach a day, for a fortnight’, its coastline is a special attraction of this area. As one might expect, very good seafood is a speciality of this area of Ireland. Indeed, good food is available from the many bars, cafés, tea rooms and restaurants that dot plentifully around and about this most picturesque part of the South East coast.
This part of Ireland, being as it was the entry point for Ireland’s many invaders, is rich in historical heritage. Tintern Abbey, Duncannon Fort, Dunbrody Abbey, Ballyhack Castle and the Hook Lighthouse itself, are just some of the fascinating heritage sites that are open to visitors here.
