Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Leinster / County Wexford / Fethard On Sea / Hook Lighthouse
Active for 800 years, Hook Lighthouse represents the oldest operational lighthouse in the world. The lighthouse has been active since the structure was finished in the 13th century. William Marshal, the Earl of Pembroke, built this Norman tower in partnership with his Lordship of Leinster. Take a guided tour, which ends at the top of the lighthouse with stunning views of the natural surroundings. Watch for seals, dolphins, and whales in the nearby waters. If you've worked up an appetite, head to the cafe or enjoy a picnic on site. For a souvenir, visit the gift shop.

Great place to visit. Plenty of parking, looking out over the ocean or on the grounds of the lighthouse. When we got there the view over the ocean was taken by camper vans and in all honesty, if I had a camper, I'd be parked right with them. Magnificent views with a chance to see dolphins, seals, and if you're extra lucky, whales have been spotted. The lighthouse itself is fabulous. There are guided tours all day and although I didn't take one this time, I have taken one in the past and the guides are first class. Didn't check tour price but last time they were pretty reasonable. There's a walkway by the wall where you can look out to sea and lots of little info on the walls. There's a cafe, gift shop, toilets, art studio, picnic area and maratime museum. There's also a play area for children. There's also a weather station on the grounds. Recommended. Go visit.
Nice place to visit for the day. I like seeing that they are expanding the place and offer more and more things to do, to eat etc. Coffee is really good there and the views are amazing. Plenty of parking and the pirate's playground is really cool. Lots of tables and grass area to have a picnic. TIP: it's always windy there so make sure you wear proper clothes and layers. Nice weather may mislead you.
