Impressive lighthouse. Great tour, really interesting history brought to life. Tour guide comes from a family of light house keepers and can answer any question you need to ask? Visit there "by Hook or by Crook"!

Lovely sites and picturesque villages topped off with a stop at the Hook Head Lighthouse. At the end we took the ferry across to continue our journey, adding to the charm of the day.
