Discover the natural beauty and tranquillity of the unspoiled Hook Peninsula. Stretching out from the scenic Southeast corner of Ireland the Hook Peninsula is famous for its breath-taking vistas, magnificent natural landscape, national heritage sites, beautiful gardens, pure sands and calm seas – this is the untouched ancient Ireland you’ve been longing to visit.

This area is a pinnacle point of Ireland’s Ancient East coast, from the 6th-century monk who kept the beacon of Hook Lighthouse aflame to warn sailors of possible shipwreck, to the arrival of Strongbow in 1170, who vowed to take Waterford ‘by Hook or by Crook’, to the famous Knights Templar who strategically placed their Irish headquarters here, the Hook Peninsula is an area where heritage runs deep.

Try your hand at some adventure with kite surfing, kayaking, coast steering and surfing all on offer and when you have worked up an appetite, sample one of the many seafood pubs and restaurants. From Michelin dining to award winning bistros, there is something for all tastes and pockets; even Ireland’s ‘Yes’ Chef of the Year 2015 sets out his stall on the Hook Peninsula.
