This was my first full day of driving in Ireland. The roads are narrow and curvy but the Hook Light house was worth the drive. We spent 2 hours walking around the grounds. Lots of parking.

We took the drive out to see the lighthouse. Very scenic and we stopped for photos quite a few times. We did not do the lighthouse tour. There are restrooms, cafe and a gift shop there.
