Having done a lot of the Wild Atlantic Way, this drive does not compare. However, it is a nice drive if you are in the area and looking for something to do.

Great location for watching the world go by. Quite busy with lots of families, but there was so much to do for kids, including pirate entertainers. Scones in the tea shop were great

Lovely location and plenty to do and see. Staff very friendly and helpful. Dogs allowed outside but not inside. Great activities for kids - giant Jenga, space hoppers, arts and crafts. Hook is worth the visit.

The Hook is 1 of my favorite places to visit in Wexford. It is so beautiful down there. The lighthouse is very interesting, The cafe is lovely. If you are in the southeast make sure and travel down and find out for yourself

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"!
