Goodbye to the Hook

Get the right day and Ireland can be anything but the usual cliche of grey skies and rain, especially in the ‘sunny southeast’. So with the sun shining brightly it was only right that I had my last trip to the Hook. There is so much beauty in Ireland but if I was pushed I would say that the Hook is my favourite spot. Once again I did the tour of the lighthouse (I have posted about this before) and they have made additions for this year, which were unveiled three weeks ago. A bit more modern now, the cost has also increased to ā‚¬9 adults.

The tour takes you to the upper levels of the lighthouse with some great views.

But it is the whole place and the walk around the head that makes this so wonderful.

I will let the photos do the talking.

    Beautiful photos and one of my favourite places. I even have a faint glimps of it in my wedding photos which were taken in Dunmore East on a lovely clear day many many years ago.
