Let the Hook Peninsula help you entertain your little people… Enjoy traditional family days on one of our many sheltered beaches, release their inner pirate at Hook Lighthouse’s Pirate weekend each July or take a short trip off the peninsula to visit south east Ireland’s award winning wildlife park, Secret Valley.

With footie golf, crazy golf, yew hedge mazes and woodland walks all available on the Peninsula your family will never be bored.  When some Irish showers come down take a trip into our neighbouring towns where bowling, soft play and activity centres are on offer.

Oldcourt Stables & Riding School

Set in the beautiful woodlands of Oldcourt, Ballykelly, New Ross, Co Wexford, Oldcourt offers everything for the horse-lover: riding lessons, showjumping, cross country or trekking


Secret Valley Wildlife Park

Secret Valley was set up by wife and husband team, Ann & John O’Connor, initially as an adventure farm in May 2007. Since then, it has grown from strength to strength. Over the years, following sponsorship, expansion and continued development driven by their passion for wildlife and nature, Secret Valley has transformed itself into a Wildlife Park.

Wexford’s longest established Riding Centre is A.I.R.E approved and is staffed by enthusiastic, highly skilled, qualified people. We offer well-trained horses and ponies, all with superb temperaments, and excellent facilities including both indoor and outdoor arenas, show jumps and cross-country fences.


Tintern Walking Trails

These three looped walks start from the trailhead at Tintern Abbey, and offer a variety of scenery and historical features along the routes.
