The Hook Peninsula

Home of Adventure

This stunning peninsula is a beautiful outcrop of land off the south coast with a diverse mix of magnificent sandy beaches, rugged rocky cliffs and limestone slabs. The peninsula is most famous for being the home of the the oldest operational lighthouse in the world (800+ Years). The lighthouse still stands proud at Hook Head, looking magnificent from miles around. With stunning sights and scenes of epic drama in days of old the area is steeped in history and tales of destruction. Today it is one of the most beautiful and truly peaceful areas of coast to visit in Ireland.

Wow. What an amazing afternoon spent with Graham on the water. Who knew we had such amazing beauty right on our doorstep. Graham’s local knowledge and fun attitude really added to the whole experience. If your looking for something interesting and exciting to do in Wexford i’d definitely recommend this.

There is so much that can be said about that tour and how awesome Graham was. I’ll start with how easy it was to communicate with Graham prior to arriving in Ireland from the USA. I wasn’t sure how to travel from Dublin to Wexford but Graham emailed all information I needed and made the 2 hour trip to Wexford a breeze. Upon arrival we instantly felt comfortable and like we were traveling with a friend. His knowledge was the area was incredible and we talked everything from Irish folklore to Star Wars. Once on the water Graham’s professionalism and skills were easily evident. He communicated instructions easily and understood the water well. He knew when and where we could kayak and how to navigate if waters began to get rough. He also improvised a few fun things for us when the weather or tide prevented what was planned. The time and care that Graham took for us will be a highlight of our month in Europe I am sure. What I think most impressed me however was his passion. You could tell he loved his job and his county. Perfect day out! Thanks Graham.

You HAVE to tour with The Irish Experience!
Our kayaking tour with the Irish Experience was above and beyond our expectations! Wexford is beautiful on its own, so you are sure to get an eye full while out and about, but I am happy to say what made this tour extra special was Graham. He was very easy to communicate with before the tour, and he was very accommodating when it came to making sure we had everything we needed.
It really felt like we were spending a day out on the water with a friend. He is very knowledgeable of the area, being a local, and knew all the local stories and folklore.
Graham is an expert at what he does, not only through academics but also through his experiences. He gave clear instructions and was able to read the water to judge conditions. We felt very safe with him and we look forward to coming to visit him again!
